Network Rail - Diversity

Having the run of Waterloo Station during rush hour meant we could capture the bustle of what a career at a diverse organisation is really like.

The workforce of an organisation should reflect the society in which it operates.
Network Rail identified that to do this, they needed to communicate a clear and positive message that diversity and inclusion is at the heart of their recruitment policy. The result was the Choose Wessex campaign for the Wessex division.

Partnering with Local Media Network, we produced a series of videos that drew upon the personal experiences of Network Rail team members to show how people are supported and developed. We combined hero shots of our people in and around the busy Waterloo Station with interviews and other cutaways where we got to really use the architecture for some shot compositing.

Catherine Chesterman from Network Rail went on to be recognised for the Choose Wessex campaign by the national Network Rail organisation in their 20by20 project and the transition into gender matters awards. Colleagues were nominated for recognition for promoting gender equality in Network Rail.





We love the moving image. In fact, we have a passion for it. Big or small screen and wherever your viewers watch, it is an irresistible opportunity to fill a space with colourful pictures and words, to make a statement and say something.

We have the knowledge and expertise to produce film, video, motion graphics and animation for all mediums: broadcast or non-broadcast television, events or commercial film. Whether it is internal or external communication, we can help you say what you need to say in a memorable way.

There is no point in making a program that nobody wants to watch. We want to make things interesting. Very interesting. We are Thunder and Lightning. The electrifying film company.
