Jumbla has been recognised for the third consecutive year at the prestigious AEAF Awards in Sydney.
This time, we took home bronze trophies for our work on Clique (TV openers category), and Forza Motorsport 6: NASCAR expansion (game trailers category).
“We're pretty wrapped to be recognised at this year’s event - we've had a hectic 12 months and produced some awesome work,” said Jumbla Creative Director Callan Woolcock.
The bronze AEAF trophy marks Jumbla’s third gong for Clique, which was also recognised with a silver award at the Summit Creative Awards (animation category), and a bronze award at the Bass Awards (best series titles category).
Jumbla collaborated on the project with the UK-based production studio Axis Animation.
Airing on BBC Three, Clique focuses on two childhood friends tackling the social challenges of the first year of university.
Forza Motorsport 6: NASCAR
The bronze AEAF is the first gong Jumbla has received for its animation work on Forza Motorsport 6: NASCAR, and we’ll be excited to see the project’s performance on the awards circuit during the next year.
Creative Director Cal said Forza Motorsport 6: NASCAR was a large project that leveraged the v aried talents of Jumbla’s 40+ creative team.
“We've always focused on personal improvement and education, to be the best we can in our industry, and every year we can see that improvement in the work we do,” he said. “It's a really great effort from all involved.”’
Jumbla was acknowledged as finalists for six additional pieces: League of Legends - Ivern Character Reveal; Blackstone; and Forza Motorsport 6: Apex (game trailers category); Healthy Homes intro (TV openers category); and Valley of the Kith (short film category).
