About

Hello! We are Studio Bolland – an animation company from the beautiful city of Cape Town. We love to create animated shorts, explainers, adverts, GIFs, SVGs 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 nonprofits.

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.

What our clients have to say:

 
We here at Automattic have been working with Studio Bolland for a couple of years now, and our videos continually get better and better! They’ve always delivered a total package for us again and again and I love working with the people there. We bring our ideas to the table and sit back and revel in the magical work that comes out on the other side, they add so much creativity and fun to our initial ideas.

Besides delivering consistently wonderful work, they’ve been absolutely accommodating and flexible with any of our demands. That’s truly how you keep a client happy, at least in our eyes. Studio Bolland goes above and beyond for us and we love working with them. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending them to the world!
