About

Hello! We are Studio Bolland – a small animation company from the beautiful city of Cape Town. We love to create animated shorts, explainers, adverts, GIFs and presentations. We also love to drink coffee and listen to music from the 90s, but unfortunately no-one pays us to do that. We work with a diverse range of clients across the globe, from advertising agencies and large corporates, to small start-ups and non profits.

How We Roll

Every project begins with a conversation. We’ll find out more about you and what you’re looking for, and you’ll find out more about us and how we can help. We’ll tailor a solution to fit your budget, and keep you in the loop throughout all stages of the project, welcoming feedback and any direction that will ensure that you receive a product you’re happy with. We offer scriptwriting, storyboarding, illustration, animation, editing, music, sound design, voice overs… the whole package. Let us know what you need, and we can get the conversation started.

Internships

We consider it a huge privilege to be able to do work that we love, and think it would be wrong to simply keep it to ourselves. That’s why we enjoy hosting internships and doing our bit in inspiring and up-skilling the next generation of illustrators and animators. If you’re interested in joining us for an internship (or even a job shadow), drop us a mail with your current portfolio, and we’ll be in touch. Space is limited, so don’t delay.

Social Awareness

We live in a wonderful world, full of wonderful people. But a lot of these people are hurting or struggling. They’re hungry or homeless, uneducated or unemployed. And whilst their situation might seem hopeless, there are always ways to help. We can all make a difference to other people’s lives if we move towards the suffering, rather than pretending it’s not there. We love to take on videos that help people to help people. If you’ve got a good cause to promote, please get in touch to see how we can partner with you.

Our clients:

 



Scripting


Cat got your tongue? If you’re looking for the right words to say in your advert or explainer video, then you can tap into our ten years of copywriting experience.


Style
Development

It’s important for the look of your content to match your brand, so we’ll help develop a style that fits your needs. Whether you’re building your brand from scratch, or have a strict CI to stick to, we’ll make sure your designs and illustrations look the part.


Storyboarding

Our storyboards bring visual direction to scripts and ideas. Every concept or sentence is an illustration waiting to happen, and our storyboards help you see and decide what those illustrations should be.


Design & Illustration

Our illustrators take words, ideas and storyboards and create beautiful designs and illustrations which capture your unique style and message.


Animation & Motion Graphics


We love breathing life into designs and illustrations with movement. Each frame is carefully crafted to captivate and inspire audiences through motion graphics and animation.



Voice Over

The perfect voice can be hard to find, but our connections to top voice over agencies in Cape Town help us find the best vocal tones for you. Our mobile studio even allows you to capture your own voice if you think you have what it takes.


Music & Sound Effects

Music sets the pace for your piece, it carries emotion and binds everything together. Our whole team has a passion for music and years of experience in the music industry. If we can’t find the right track, we’ll make it. We’ll also record and use SFX to complete the perfect audio experience.
