Mandela Day - 67 second animation

Calling All Charities and Good Causes

This Mandela Day, Studio Bolland will be creating a 67 second animation for a good cause or charity.


Mandela Day is all about making the world a better place, which is why this Mandela Day we’ll be helping a charity that is already doing just that.

Here’s how it’ll work…

We’ll pick a charity from the applications we receive, and prior to Mandela Day we’ll help them develop a script and make sure they’re happy with the content and strategy. Then, on Mandela Day itself, we will get our whole team together to storyboard, illustrate, animate, record VO and add original music & sound effects to create a 1 day masterpiece. 

Animation is an excellent tool to highlight a social cause or promote a charity that needs a marketing boost. It’s proven that a concise, well-executed piece of video content can do wonders for any marketing strategy, presentation or social media post. Our hope is that by taking on this Mandela Day Challenge, we’ll be giving this opportunity to an organisation that normally wouldn’t be able to afford an animation like this, and by doing so, help them reach more people in their cause to make this world a better place.
