About Bomper:  

Bomper is an independent production studio, creating work filled with character and originality. The team is made up of talented in-house artists, illustrators, animators and producers. Our credo is to constantly embrace our natural-curiosity and challenge our ambitions, by playing with mediums and formats, in crafting our best work. And of course, having a lot of fun along the way.

Our team is highly passionate about creativity and innovation, underpinned by a willingness to help others develop. It is a fun and energetic environment that really comes to life when we are in production.

The past year has been exciting for Bomper. The studio released their first short film Coffee Run, a music video for Grammy-nominated artist, Tyler Childers’ ‘Country Squire’, and directed an animated music video for Foo Fighters ‘No Son of Mine’.  We’re committed to developing our craft to bring even more rewarding opportunities, so it’s an exciting time to join the team and help us write the next chapter of our story!
