Jumbla launches six in-studio animation and motion design courses

Learning animation and motion design by doing

“We’ve always had the philosophy that the best way to learn is to do, and all of our new courses are based on this,” Jumbla Executive Creative Director Callan Woolcock said.

“We’re all about developing the next wave of animation and motion graphics talent and hope to make an even greater impact in this arena with our new suite of courses.”

Callan said student input was the driving force behind the overhaul of Jumbla Academy.

“We gathered feedback from previous graduates and prospective students for insight into how we could potentially restructure Jumbla Academy to suit more people,” he said. “It revealed a lot of interest in shorter courses, and courses focusing on specific techniques and software packages.

“Another thing we learned was that some students couldn’t spare an entire day for in-studio study due to other commitments.

“The new courses are now four hours per day and spread over 10 or 20 weeks, making them more accessible.”

Applications for the first semester of Jumbla Academy’s new-look course suite close on Friday 25 May.


Jumbla is a design-driven animation and motion graphics studio based in Melbourne and London.

Our 40-strong team spans the globe and works to apply the best production, script writing, creative, design and technical practices to help clients successfully tell their stories.

We’re proud to work with industry leaders including Microsoft Studios, Riot Games, Leo Burnett, McCann, ANZ, Barclays, QANTAS, Toyota, Suzuki, Ogilvy, BBC, ESPN, and Netflix – to name just a few.

Our experience with the largest corporations is balanced by the projects we tackle for smaller boutiques and owner-operated businesses, in addition to our pro-bono charity work.

The educational arm of the studio – Jumbla Academy – was introduced in 2016 to help the next generation of animators and graphic designers equip themselves with the technical and soft skills required to land (and keep) a job in the competitive Australian creative industry.
