VX Animation partnered with an NGO passionate about giving relief and education to children in the Niger Delta regions. Donors supporting the production of the short film will also get an opportunity to support less privileged children in the polluted region. 

BLACK RAIN is about using animation as a tool to bring about positive change in the environmental sector. 

Your contribution will help us bring BLACK RAIN to life and take African cinematic animation to the next level. And the top donors will be given free comic issues, exclusive access to project details, EXCLUSIVE BLACK RAIN NFT trading cards, previews of upcoming projects, premiere screening of the film and so much more!

With award-winning animated films screened across the world and recognized in the global press, we continue to push the boundaries of our craft bringing the spotlight to Africa while creating value for an emerging industry.
