Bird “The Line Painter” by Not To Scale

A humble street line painter takes traffic problems into his own hands in this film for Bird, the urban scooter unicorn, directed by BAT (Bali Engel and Matthieu Landour) and animated in 2D and 3D by Not To Scale.

BAT: “[This] felt like the perfect story for us, a tale of re-balancing the roads, re-adjusting the space between cars, pedestrians and all of those other modes of transport.

“We aren’t fond of the amount of global traffic on a personal level, and we agree that there are a great many other alternatives now to travel in a city. This is the core theme of the film, all told through the brave actions of a line-painter.”

Not To Scale worked directly with Bird on the film, handling strategy and script as well as design and production inside a six-week schedule.
