Cloud Cult's "Stories from the Road" is a series of short documentary films that highlight the inspiring stories of individual fans the band has met while on tour. Each of the stories focuses on people who have overcome incredible obstacles in their lives and instead of being crushed by the struggle, they chose to bring beauty to the planet in the process.
These videos from Cloud Cult Films, which were directed and produced by Jeff D. Johnson of Motion 117 Productions, are a small handful of the many inspiring stories Cloud Cult fans have shared with us, and it's these kinds of empowering stories that fuel the Cloud Cult ship. In an era when the bulk of news media focuses on the negative things going on in the world, more attention needs to be given to the people who's powerful life stories inspire hope in humanity... and that is the goal of Cloud Cult's "Stories from the Road".
