Boniato is a socially engaged audiovisual creation studio whose commitment is expressed through the exclusive choice of social, environmental or educational projects. We produce creative and original videos to reveal and share projects that aim to bring about positive change. Our team invests its time, know-how and motivation to support projects contributing to the emergence of a more egalitarian, more democratic world, respectful of its environment.
Animated video is our core expertise. Our creative team works on the 7 steps of the production process of animated videos : script writing, artistic direction proposal, storyboard, creation of graphic resources, animation, sound work, and post-production.
Each of these steps is subject to validation by your teams. At the start of production, we define together the time that will be necessary for you to compile the feedback from your teams, in order to refine the production schedule.
We had the opportunity to produce animation videos for large organizations such as the United Nations (UNREDD +), Doctors without borders (Médecins Sans Frontières), or TED-education (TED talks), as for more modest ones such as Beyond conflict, Afrepren, GAMS, the InkLink or even i-boycott.
Each time, we have had the chance to interact with committed people and have been immersed in issues that have fascinated us. We have been able to create unique graphic proposals and original content, in order to share knowledge, or mobilize around a major cause. You can consult the non-exhaustive list of organizations with which we have collaborated on our website.

Projet réalisé pour Afrepren / FWD dans l'industrie Sans but lucratif pour un public B2B en 2018.The African continent is growing fast. There are many natural resources which industries use to produce things like sugar, rice, wood, tea, paper and many other goods. But all of these industries need both electricity and heat for their production. And these are very expensive. On top of that the industrial production generates a lot of waste...Cogeneration is an exciting technology which can transform agricultural waste into both electricity and heat. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally friendly technology. It reduces pollution by using already available resources to bring electricity to industries, and to rural communities. And it can create more job opportunities for local people too.
