Well it took a while but we’re delighted to showcase Emirates Airlines new welcome on board video for 2016. The idea was to completely make the background and cabin in cgi. We wanted to show a fantasy world of entertainment and information that you could lose yourself in, yet retain certain characteristics of the aircraft such as windows and overhead lockers in the background.
Another challenge was to bring this down to TVC length at 90 seconds, with so much going on it was a difficult task but in the end it all worked out.
Welcome on board

This is the start of many new bumpers for Emirates Airline ice system.
We came up with and love this idea of taking all the signage and markings you see at an airport and adapt them into stings for ice. There are many more of these on the way so keep watching to see how we changed an airport!
