About Us

Flint Motion is a vibrant and creative motion graphics studio based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We specialize in design and animation… so no, we won’t be editing your wedding videos, unfortunately. We’ve worked on everything from cinema ads to explainer videos, the best of which have conveniently been plonked below. Making pixels move is what we do best, so if you’re in the market for a wicked piece of animated awesomeness, hit us up!

    The Ocean Pan-tastic

    In addition to the other Ocean Basket animations we created with So Interactive, we were delighted to create this goodie as part of the “When you think of the ocean, think Ocean Basket” campaign. Themed “Celebrate the Pan” we depicted an ocean full of creatures morphing into an ocean full of utensils which ultimately lands up in an ocean basket pan.

    The Human Genome

    Meet the Cerealots

    To promote the Jungle Crunchalot cereal, Arc Interactive developed a fantastic app for kids and needed another in-app video to introduce the Cerealot characters. Flint Motion was given the story and went about designing the kooky tale, with characters based on the original mascot’s design.

    Exxaro: The Future of Mining

    Exxaro needed a video which would highlight the company’s socially responsible attitude and show that they cared strongly for the environment and their employees. They needed something that people could relate to so we settled on a more photographic style, and we dig the outcome.

    Witch & Wizard Logo Build

    Witch and Wizard productions needed a dark and mysterious logo animation, and that’s exactly what we gave them. With their wicked branding in mind, we set about designing and animating a magical world filled with evil trees, blood hungry bats, and a rather fit, staff wielding wizard.

So this is what we do

For anything else, buy us a drink first.

Storyboards, treatment frames, typographic layouts, character designs

We design everything from storyboards and treatment frames to typographic layouts and character designs. While we specialize in designs that move, we’re more than happy to help out with things such as branding, mascot designs and illustrations.

tv commercials, audio visuals, explainer videos, animated logos, award entries

Animation is where things get really exciting. We do TV commercials, audio visuals (or AV’s as the cool kids call it), explainer videos, animated logos, award entries and everything in between.

footage editing, video colour grading, animatic stitching

Not all projects require design and animation however. Whether it’s editing footage together, colour grading of video or stitching together an animatic, we can do that too!
