Rumpus Animation was set up in 2011 by Joe Wood and Seb Burnett as a place where they could indulge in making fun animated stories. Their first project ‘Julian Sweeney and his Teenie Weeny Genie,’ about a boy and his magic underpants, failed to receive any critical acclaim whatsoever. They have since worked on their own short films, music videos, commercials and series work for CBBC.
Last year they won funding through Creative England’s Gameslab initiative to make the Bertram Fiddle game and hired Game Developer Alexander Birke and Animator/Technical Artist Dan Emmerson.
