Mectizan Donation Programme: Stamp Out Oncho Cameroon
Client: Mectizan Donation Programme
Expertise: Charity Partnerships + Global Health + Social Impact
Getting people to stand up and take action is at the core of the Mectizan Donation Programme’s remit. Especially when the intended audience are Ministers of Health in African countries. This is the first of a series of films intended to get key influencers to commit to putting their name to a 30 year-long elimination programme – ridding Africa of River Blindness or onchocerciasis. If we work together we can stamp out oncho!
We used a local fixer to go in search of stories that were set up in advance of our shooting producer director’s arrival. We then worked with a wonderful local photographer and camera assistant to create a more integrated team and integrate more in to remote and challenging settings.
It started off a relationship with Cameroon that continues to this day, adding to the list of the many African countries that we have ties with.

Cloud9Media spent an action-packed week in Western Uganda to create video and photographic coverage for TV presenter Charlie Webster’s recent trip as she saw with her own eyes the impact of malaria – and come to terms with a fatal disease that she caught herself two years ago.
Flying Start: South Africa
Client: British Airways
Expertise: Branded Content + Charity Partnerships + Global Health
In our latest of our ongoing relationship with British Airways and Comic Relief, this time we took our cameras to a baby club in the outskirts of Cape Town. All storyboards went out the window when faced with toddlers on the loose; that energy was manifest in the film!
Cloud9Media, working in collaboration with Vivacity, were commissioned by global home assistance company HomeServe to create a set of video assets that became the backbone of a leadership inspiration event held at the ExCeL London in August 2018.
In the first of two films commissioned as their trusted media partner, we laid bare the DNA of the company and brought to life the core leadership skills that HomeServe was founded on. Maximising on a single filming opportunity working with a dedicated and very caring film crew to get a range of assets that really brought their conference to life by capturing what makes them so unique.
This film was produced as part of a suite of material gathered on two trips to India and Zanzibar for use as an advocacy tool to support GSK’s donation programme. Having the children tell us their stories meant we needed to find confident speakers – no easy task in Zanzibar where traditionally young girls can be cripplingly shy. So we used a local fixing company to meet potential contributors, source the best stories and start to weave together a narrative that speaks to the heart – and the parent in all of us.
Back in the UK we translated interviews, re-scripted and looked to use voiceover artists from the local African and Indian diaspora of London. This helped keep the child’s voice at the centre of the narrative whilst avoiding the use of subtitles which can distract from the core action.
