Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Flying between New Zealand’s major cities is quick and cheap, so why bother taking the train?
We figured if you fly, all you see of New Zealand is clouds. Take the train, and you get to see some of the world’s most beautiful scenery.
To show people what they’d see from the train, the entire 681km journey was recreated as one long continuous photograph.
Creative Execution
To make this long photograph, still shots were taken out the train window every few seconds for the whole 12hr journey. Then we combined all 31,509 images into the longest snapshot ever.
It was so long it ran through an entire magazine, as consecutive strip ads on every single page.
Results and Effectiveness
Thousands of potential passengers were shown exactly what they were missing – the 681km of New Zealand you can only see by train.
