Founded in 2010, Solid Black saw an opportunity to create high-quality animation for the South African market.

From the outset Solid Black offered a highly specialised service that encompassed all scales of production - from small, quick turnaround tasks to extended projects that take weeks, even months, to complete.

Over the years we’ve stayed ahead of the curve by utilising the latest technology, with a strong focus on simplifying and improving our systems and workflow, to ensure the product we deliver is on the forefront of innovation.

Our mission is to not only deliver a technically superior product, but also to communicate a message that resonates with its intended audience. To achieve this, we meticulously craft creative concepts that ensure the brands we work with deliver stories that inform, excite and engage.


3D Animation

We are able to create life-like realism and depth with CGI (computer generated imagery) for characters, environments and products.

2D Animation

Often referred to as Traditional style animation, 2D is created using hand drawn or computer generated images for stylised flat animation. 2D is most commonly used in explainer videos, infographics and cartoons.

Video Production

Our team is able to provide and manage a full service video production service for location or studio shoots. We provide hiring of gear, crew, casting, recce and submission for final broadcast.

VFX and Compositing

We tackle complex VFX shots using techniques such as fluid dynamics & cloth simulation which can be composited onto green screen footage or background plates.

When a video needs a voice, we craft the script, consolidating your ideas into a cohesive message that speaks from your brands heart.

We offer the development of digital assets and animations for mobile gaming apps, AR (Augmented Reality) and VR (Virtual Reality).
