Normalise: Behind the Scenes
When we got the call to make a film about normalising testing for COVID-19 around the world, we leapt to the challenge. Storyboarding, working with three filming crews (including actors, locations, costume etc..) in India, Estonia and Kenya we filmed a series of sequences to highlight what life could be like if we all knew our status at any given moment in the day.
British Airways Flying Start 10th Anniversary
Cloud9Media have a long-standing video partnership with British Airways and Comic Relief, so when BA approached us to make a video celebrating the 10th anniversary of their Flying Start campaign, they knew they were in good hands.
They needed something fun, lively, and engaging to encompass all of the incredible things that the partnership has achieved, as well as it being suited for broadcast internally and on their social channels. We dove into both the Cloud9 and BA archives and put together a short, punchy video that holds nothing back in delivering the message.
Saving water in Kenya
Charity partnerships like the One Brand and World of Duty free are incredibly powerful – helping raise millions of pounds for long-term causes like clean water. To capture a bunch of people who have never been to this part of the world is rewarding in its own right.
A Home for HIV Infected Children
Based in Kenya, Nyumbani is a charity that has developed a visionary solution to the legacy of HIV AIDS in Kenya. Through the love of a Catholic Sister, the charity has helped thousands of orphaned children face the huge challenges of making it to adulthood in a country where HIV is still a taboo with confidence, allowing these orphans to refill the gap left by previous generations wiped out by this disease.
The film was paid for by Hotcourses, one of their benefactors, to update board members like Jeremy Hunt on the life-changing work that goes on in this special place. We created several lengths of film for different purposes, and worked closely with the charity to ensure the creation of a sensitive and informative final product.
Community Investment – The Dafne Sheldrick Trust
They say never to work with children or animals. With baby elephants being over-friendly (and boy do they push!) filming at the Daphne Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was no exception. Thankfully British Airways use their network of people, planes and goodwill to bring help to orphaned elephants in Kenya. It’s reassuring that large corporations can use their core skills to help more than just passengers.
An experience never to be forgotten.
