Established in 2010, Cloud in the Sky Studios is a creative video production company based in Ottawa, Canada. Using experiential storytelling, we help companies deliver authentic and engaging brand experiences. We have written, directed, produced, and filmed video marketing campaigns, commercials, human interest videos, music videos, fashion editorials and short films.
We are a growing family of artists, writers, directors, cinematographers, photographers, designers, and editors. We encourage all creatives to collaborate.
We stemmed from our collective addiction to discover, tell stories, and create. Our start in 2010 was the beginning of what has been our lives’ passion, filmmaking. Although our start was a humble one, we knew that with dedication, creativity, and hard work, we could achieve the highest standard of cinema. Thus, it became our relentless pursuit. We invite you to grow with us as we achieve new heights.

Head of Production
At the age of 10, using no more than little green army men, a VHS camcorder, and an endless backyard, Julien attempted to capture what his imagination had to share. As it would be, he came to see how there were so many moments and perspectives in life that could be measured and how they could be uniquely interpreted and captured in a moving frame. His formal education comes from the University of Ottawa in Psychology, and that learning has influenced his storytelling and has carved for him a unique way of filming and editing. “I consider myself fortunate to do what I love, and I always look forward to working with talented people! I have a passion to share knowledge I’ve learned along the way so don’t hesitate to ask!” He pulls inspiration from the people, architecture, and nature around him, always focusing on the beauty and truth hidden in plain sight. Julien has represented the company in the areas of cinematography, editing, and producing.

Dom has earned himself a reputation in the industry over the past six years for being a rare breed of "organized creative". They say "idle hands make the devils work", which is a saying that Dom took a little too literally as a child: you can find his hands behind the camera, on the keyboard in the edit suite, or frequently on a fork and knife as he eats his fourth or sixth meal of the day. His appetite is matched only by his passion for bringing out genuine stories through captivating video content. He talks quietly, laughs loudly, and works hard, whether it's on spreadsheets or that last killer shot of the day.
