Publicis Groupe Verified

‘Advertising needs you’ is a 60 second film created by Black students from Lambeth to inspire fellow students to consider a career in advertising, as currently only 13% of the industry are people of colour.

Commissioned by Leo Burnett as part of their drive to improve diversity in the industry, the agency partnered with Brixton-based community business, We Rise, to work with the students. Award winning director Ashley Francis Roy brought their idea to life in this engaging and inspiring film.
