About

Now with 2 award winning producers on board, Jumper has gone international. With a strong stable of commercials directors in Ireland and Internationally as well as access to a wide pool of international directors, we’re perfectly placed to bring any project to life. And with extensive in-house production experience shooting in both Ireland and Southern Africa we can make pretty much any budget work – and make every penny count.

Need stills too?

As many jobs these days also require stills for use in other media, we’ve started to work with a number of photographers, all of whom are well versed in working on set. Because we plan this in as part of the process, description is minimal while the value you get is maximised.

And of course, apart from delivering a professional product at a terrific price, we’re also really nice people to work with and great fun too!
