Young animator team Connor Rhoda and Chris Cuningham are developing an animated adventure series – Team Roho – set in Cape Town. Here we catch an exclusive peek at one of their characters.


We took the City Hall background plate to Comic Con Cape Town 2023, and invited cosplayers to stand in front of a green screen, capturing themselves – in character – as tourists in Cape Town. It was very much a low budget experiment, but a lot of fun for all concerned.

Many thanks to Caya Creative.

Where to Make a Scene at City Hall

An iconic building with an impressive clocktower and a bronze statue of Nelson Mandela, City Hall has a myriad of interesting features. Grand Parade is open most of the time, and offers a full backdrop of City Hall.
