Melbourne’s most exciting animation studio, Jumbla turns 3!
Published on Jul 04, 2014
Numbers rule our life. We structure our days by them and as they clock up to years we let them determine how we place ourselves in relationships and society – we even let them structure how we feel about ourselves. Numbers have so much power yet the significance behind them is often lost in the daily race.
This week at Jumbla we are celebrating our 3rd birthday as an animation studio. Anniversaries like these are a good time to sit back and reflect on what’s important. Given we work with symbols and language all day we thought we’d try and find the meaning behind the number in literature.
When you think about it we grew up with this number in the stories of our greatest cartoons and fairytales: three little pigs, three wishes, three guesses, three bears.
Before his time Plato recognised 3 as being symbolic of the triangle, one of the most popular shapes when producing motion graphics. The triangle is the simplest spatial shape.
The number 3 is also triptych in the storytelling process, we break up our work with a beginning, middle and an ending. Similar to the production process we divide our projects by pre-production, production and post-production.
For us the number 3 means having a cool studio bursting with talent, inspiration and good people to have a beer with on Friday. This week that beer will be replaced with a flute of champagne.
Happy birthday Jumbla!
