Filmtime’s Journey with the City of Port Phillip to Transform Urban Mobility

In a groundbreaking collaboration, Filmtime Media teamed up with the City of Port Phillip, under the creative direction of Peter Hynes, to bring an ambitious project to life. The project aimed to shed light on the city’s Integrated Transport Strategy, a pivotal plan designed to transform urban mobility and enhance the livability of the community.

Tasked with the challenge of communicating a complex strategy to a diverse demographic, Filmtime Media, a premier video production company, employed its expertise in explainer videos to create a compelling narrative that would resonate with every resident of Port Phillip.

Bridging Complexity and Creativity

The essence of this collaboration was to merge simplicity with creativity, ensuring the message was not only accessible but also engaging to a multicultural and multi-aged audience. By adopting a minimalist design, characterized by clear shapes and a carefully selected color palette, Filmtime Media crafted an animated explainer video that balanced professionalism with a touch of whimsy, making the local government’s vision both relatable and captivating.

At the heart of the animation was a character inspired by the familiar “little green man” from pedestrian crossings, serving as a metaphor for the journey residents would embark on through the revamped urban landscape. This creative decision allowed the narrative to cover the extensive areas of Port Phillip, from its serene beaches to bustling urban centers, ensuring the strategy’s impact was vividly illustrated.

“This project was an example of what is possible when you bring storytelling and 2D animation together well. It showcases our ability to distill complex ideas into engaging narratives that connect with a wide audience.”

Achieving Impact Through Storytelling

Peter Hynes’ creative direction was instrumental in steering the project towards success. The project leveraged cloud-based tools for seamless collaboration and real-time feedback, ensuring that the animation not only met but exceeded the client’s expectations.
