ABOUT US

A LITTLE SHOP GETTING BIG THINGS DONE

AVA is a Cape Town-based digital studio specialising in video, web and animation production. Founded in 2012, we’ve spent the last decade building an international reputation as a little shop from Woodstock doing big work, wherever.

We love making beautiful, effective work that catches eyes and captures hearts. From Motion Graphics to Web Design, Film to VFX. We’re a one-stop shop, taking you from concept to execution, to results that speak for themselves. Let's connect!

WE WORK WITH THE BEST

ARTISTS

THE TEAM

Our team has been working together for many years. We're all about the long term.

Tyron Kuypers

Co-Founder / Director

Humble, honest & passionate, that’s Ty's style; thoughtful and rational that's how he does business. Good work is chosen and created selectively, just like his Spotify playlists.

Nico Botha

Animator

Nico likes his hair long, his Castle Lites cold and his animation award-winning.

Stephanie Kuypers

Web Developer & Designer

Steph has a passion for creating visuals that strengthens brand loyalty and aims to leave beauty in her wake. Did you know she is a Webflow junky? Well, now you know.

Shannon Devy

Copywriter

Shannon is our wicked Senior TTL Copywriter with a bloodlust for Oxford Commas and live performances (for those who know)

Mike Kelly

Sound design

Mike versatility and work ethic paired with his enthusiasm for new challenges has helped him push the sonic landscapes both locally and abroad. He's also a badass DJ!

Luke Veysie

Motion Artist

Luke is what we like to call a 'Post Production Wizard'. His skills are well flexed in After Effects and Premiere. Not to mention - he's also an all round nice guy, 365.

Patrick Craig

New Business Operator

Pat is the ultimate connector. When he's not building new client relationships and projects he can be found seeking experiences that push him out his comfort zone, enjoying cold morning swims and travelling the globe.

Jonathan Portuesi

Financial Director

One of South Africa’s original rave promoters with a knack for numbers. If he isn’t chasing cheques or balancing spreadsheets, you might be able to find him shredding the mini ramp at the local skatepark with his daughter!

Tchavdar Nakov

Producer

In his 20 year plus career, Tchavdar has been instrumental in formulating business strategies and executing them from the ground up. He drives efficiencies and ensures a high standard of delivery across all aspects of the business as well as being an avid F1 supporter.

WHAT THEY SAY

Testimonials

What AVA provide is a true sense of comfort. They offer strong conceptual experience and commitment to producing high quality media, with hyper speed turnaround times. They immediately recognise the problem you're trying to solve and offer solutions you've never thought of.

Yanick Bathfield
Senior Content Producer

We approached AVA to create a teaser video for Spier Light Art, an annual light art exhibition, among other promotional video content for this event. Essentially the brief was to create material promoting an event that doesn't exist yet - you have nothing to shoot! We loved how AVA shared our passion for the arts and this event and came fully on board with us on this journey. They conceptualized a stunning promo video that created levels of interest we've not seen before and together with a strong digital campaign we managed to attract almost double the numbers we saw previous years, and this in a pandemic.

Xenia Van Der Meulen
Managing Director

AVA is a fantastic all rounded team that really provides tailored experience for every job. I've had the pleasure of working with Ty for a couple of years on a wide array of productions and every project flows like a dream. Having a person/team who get your vision and make it work is the best part the AVA experience.

Beverly Toweett
Senior Producer

I’m consistently impressed by the team at AVA’s passion for the creative craft. From Film to animation their production quality is excellent. A fantastic one stop shop for our brand creative needs. Underpinning everything is a bunch of genuine smart people who make work fun & the process easy.

Shaun Stemment
Brand Manager South Africa

AVA’s strategic, organized and quick on their feet approach is what helped us create our amazing new website. It’s because of their seeing the value of the ‘why’ behind the ‘how’ we can now say we have a tool to present our company, which is completely aligned with our vision.

Mariëm Bellin
Managing Director

“We love working with AVA. The video content they produce is world class . In this fast paced environment they are quick to turn around high quality videos and we’ve had lots of compliments from international artists/management from their work.”
