Southern Railway – Green Book
Southern Railways needed a fresh look and complete overhaul in the way their DVDs are presented. They gave us the brief to make the new video come across as funny, cool, young and fresh. They wanted the feel of a music video by cutting the shots to the rhythm of the music. The sound track needed to be contemporary, strong but not overpowering.
They also wanted to give all the staff watching the DVD authenticity that these were all real conductors working at real train stations and on the appropriate trains, so continuity had to be kept tight.
The shoot took 5 days with a couple of the scenes having to be shot in under a few minutes!
I just wanted to congratulate Top Notch on the quality, content and style of the DVD I was absolutely enthralled, and no, I am not too easily pleased!
