Share your world with Google Local Guides.

Local Guides is a global community of explorers sharing their discoveries on Google Maps. Help others find the best spots in town, make new friends, and unlock exclusive benefits along the way.

As part of the expanding Local Guides program, we created four short content films that explain how it works, and a longer film to say thank you to all the Local Guides out there.

Directed by Dave Lane (The Gourmand), each scene was painstakingly created by hand, before being captured and animated in-camera.
