Studio 9 Films




 special projects


Studio 9 Films Ltd is the company led by
award winning producer/director/self shooter and photojournalist Fiona Lloyd-Davies. She has made programmes for all the major broadcasters such as the BBC, Channel 4 and Al Jazeera English for
nearly two decades. She is also commissioned
to make films by NGO’s.

Fiona is well known for the twenty films she made for Newsnight with Salam Pax, the "Baghdad Blogger". Their unique style, bringing quirky and moving first hand experiences of living in Iraq, brought them recognition with an RTS award for Innovation 2003 - 2004. This is the second RTS she's been awarded. The first was for her film Licence to Kill, for BBC2's Correspondent foreign affairs series.

Fiona also works as a photojournalist. Her work
can be seen in broadsheets, magazines as well
as on NGO websites. She also combines her
unique photographic style and portraiture with her moving images for specially commissioned
multi -media films. Her work has also been
exhibited in London and other locations.
In July 2005 she was commissioned by Edinburgh
City Council to return to the DR Congo to find the women, victims of sexual violence, she had photographed in 2001. The exhibition was part of Edinburgh's Africa season to mark the G8 summit.

Studio 9 Films is building on Fiona's extensive
experience of producing compelling films about
complex subjects from difficult locations. With her
proven track record as a series producer, and
seasoned producer/director the company is
delivering high quality films for traditional
and multi-platform broadcasts.

Fiona found her way into TV through an ad hoc trip
to Bosnia in the first few months of the war in 1992.
It landed her, her first job as a researcher, on Clive Gordon's film “The Unforgiving” which won a BAFTA.
It also started her passion for exposing human
rights issue's and bringing stories from areas of
conflict to a wider audience. Now over nineteen
years later, she's made a wide range of films
from "obs docs" to history and current affairs.
Her work combines journalism with a strong
visual style that she learnt as a graduate of the
Royal College of Art. She is also using the latest
HD technology, self-shooting with the newest HD tapeless camera on the market while making her
latest film in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
In 2011 she was asked to write a monologue
about a peace builder in the Democratic Republic
of Congo which was performed by award winning
actor Mark Rylance, in New York. The play is
now being performed all over the UK.
