Student testimonials

I became super busy after I made my showreel at Jumbla Academy. It's actually non-stop, and I'm working on interesting projects. I've been using 200% of the skills that I learnt at Jumbla Academy, so thank you!

University is amazing but it is quite an insular environment, whereas with Jumbla you're in studio. You're in the same environment as people who are doing the job every single day.

Every Sunday I was like, "Awesome Monday coming up." Even though in most cases I didn't have my assignment ready, I was just psyched to get in to class! It's a creative atmosphere that inspires you to give it your best.
