We where asked to create a short animation encouraging the employees at Network Rail to donate one million hours of their time to Samaritans.

We enjoyed adapting the dynamic script, commissioned by Network Rail, using a mix of 2D character animation and motion graphics, in the iconic Samaritans colour palette. 

The film takes you on a journey through the different working environments of the Network Rail team. We follow track workers, ticket guards and trains, until we end up in a Samaritans branch and see the Network Rail team volunteering their time.
