Who will be teaching?

Jambo Animation is a world-known animation studio. Working since 2008, they have created a large number of projects together with freelance artists, studios, agencies and the company around the world.

My name is Danila, and animation has always been my hobby since childhood.

I started making first cartoons when I was 12 years old. The first money from the animation came when I was 14 years. Now I am 29, and I have been working for myself for more than 10 years. I started my way with Macromedia Flash MX, then switched to After Effects, became a freelancer, but after a few years of creating commercials, I realized that I was not interested in it anymore. I realized that I wanted to do hand-drawn animation and I wanted to draw with my hand on a graphic tablet, and not with a mouse.

So then I switched to Toon Boom, I decided to forget about cut-out animation, and go deep into frame-by-frame only. My wife and I created an animation studio called “Jambo”, and began to get acquainted with like-minded people who, like us, are burning with this idea. We wanted to develop professionally and to do great things, make beautiful, unusual animation, and not just commercials.
