The Problem

PlaceSpeak commissioned us to create an animated explainer video for PlaceSpeak to explain ‘what we do’. PlaceSpeak is a location-based community consultation platform. What they do: From participating in public consultations to creating stronger neighbourhoods, PlaceSpeak empowers you to shape the community in which you want to live. Their mission is to build legitimacy in online democratic practices by authenticating digital identity to place, protecting individual privacy, and closing the feedback loop between public consultation and accountability.

The Solution

Using the script and storyboard from the client we created the PlaceSpeak Animated Explainer Video story based 2D character animation, telling the story of a young woman on a city street, and elderly Indian man on a city street and an Asian mother and child, using our own artwork, designs, illustrations and animations. The final video has personality and is custom made from scratch. The PlaceSpeak Animated Explainer Video is making an otherwise complex subject easy to understand. The videos has been featured on their main website landing page for a very long time. Here below are some behind the scenes images from our work on the PlaceSpeak Animated Explainer Video before it turned into the finished product.

In addition to the use of the video on their website landing page and social media, PlaceSpeak participated in the American Planning Association conference in Seattle. At the Planning Expo, you could also see the video being shown above. PlaceSpeak is a location-based citizen engagement platform that has been designed to consult with people within specific geographic boundaries. We loved working with PlaceSpeak and look forward to making more explainer videos to be used on website landing pages, conferences and educational videos.
