Cielo Pictures has been telling 'Stories That Matter" on television, radio and on the internet for 2 decades. We have produced award winning broadcast documentaries in dozens of countries around the world.  Our documentary focus is, and always will be, finding and telling stories about people, humanitarian organizations and corporations that go well out of their way to make the world a better place.

We have worked with small charities and large companies, utilizing the best in video production gear, skilled videographers, writers, directors and editors.
