We’ve been waiting for you.

Animation is an important part of the production process. At Kaboom, we’re producing an animation from the ground up. As a student animator, you’ll be an integral member of the team, working alongside Hollywood producers, writers, animators, artists, and musicians.

The voice-over group will be guided by the Kaboom’s 50-member collective—a group of industry experts and educators—as well as Emmy-award winning screenwriter, producer, voice actor, and puppeteer Paul Rugg

Paul has worked extensively as a voice-over artist, voicing characters in Animaniacs, Freakazoid, Manny the Uncanny, and many others. Most recently, he worked with Brian Henson on the Disney+ talk show Earth to Ned.
