ROBOT RUPMUS WAS BORN IN 1997...
when Creative Director and Founder, Jason Dunn, created a short film about a lonely robot. You could argue that it started years before that when Jason started drawing cartoons and making super 8 films as a child. His talent led him to be discovered and mentored by some of the pioneers of modern animation and visual storytelling, Bill Hanna, Frank Thomas and Olli Johnston.
Robot Rumpus has grown from one guy in his living room to a full service boutique matte painting, visual effects and digital arts company.
Jason met Yasmin, his wife and the Executive Producer of Robot Rumpus years ago on a freelance VFX job. Yasmin left VFX to pursue a career in education only to return to help manage the rapidly growing business.
With two unique backgrounds coming together, they have created a company that prides itself on communication, artistic integrity, and education. We are able to recognize the gifts in all of artists and use that talent to help create a clients' vision.
Will be updated shortly.
