About the Director

Raine Allen-Miller is on a mission to make you smile. Reliably colorful and surprisingly subversive, Raine’s film work tackles the truth with a wide grin. In 2016, Raine directed her breakthrough video Storm for Salute – a joyful celebration of immigration in the immediate wake of the Brexit vote. This timely video landed her a spot on It’s Nice That’s coveted ‘Ones to Watch’ list. In 2018, she continued this political streak with I’d Rather Get Paid for Secret deodorant, a star-studded musical number addressing the gender pay gap. In 2018 Raine’s debut short Jerk premiered at the BFI London Film Festival. Her commercial work also includes UnPerfect Dreams for Nike Japan, Go Play for ASOS and most recently, Unlimit-ing for Virgin Media. Prior to joining Somesuch in 2017, Raine was a creative at Mother. She is a Brit School alumna and based in London.
