RAF launches new campaign by Engine Creative


By thesanfranciscoegotist / /

Engine Creative is out with a spot to raise awareness of the roles available within Britian’s Royal Air Force (RAF) Air and Space Operations profession. The spot, directed by David Dearlove, Creative Director at Engine Creative, shines a light on the ever-changing decisions of those who work in RAF Air and Space Operations.

Flight Lieutenant Simon Williams says of the work, “The RAF Air Operations Specialist Recruitment Team collaborated very closely with Engine Creative throughout a turbulent period caused by the Coronavirus pandemic to delivery an Air and Space Operations video focussing on the profession’s prime responsibility – the defence of UK airspace. In the face of numerous hurdles, with masses of positivity, we have created a fantastic video promoting some of the incredibly exciting opportunities we have within the profession to a wide audience. Engine Creative has delivered a high-quality product that will undoubtedly inspire current and future audiences, and highlights the critical role that the Air and Space Operations profession and the RAF play in the security of the nation.” 

Chris Ringsell, Creative Director at Engine says, “This atmospheric spot shows potential recruits that a cool head and quick thinking is crucial to a role in RAF Air and Space Operations. Seeing the thought process of every potential eventuality play out on screen gives us a tense and visceral experience of what goes through the mind of the protagonist and asks potential recruits if they have what it takes.”
