Zumbakamera (Zoom-Back-Camera) is a creative and animation studio sending signals to the world from the island of Mallorca, Spain. The studio is the brainchild of Jossie Malis, designer, animator, filmmaker and screenwriter of Peruvian/Chilean origin and Julie Reier, music composer and sound designer with Nepalese and German roots. Since 2006, we are dedicated to the creation of short films, animated series such as the award-winning Bendito Machine, video clips, commercials, documentary content, art direction, graphic design, music composing and sound design. Our short films have been selected in hundred of festivals around the world, receiving a long list of accolades. In addition to our studio, in 2017 we founded Flipboku, a publishing house specialized in mind-blowing interactive flip books.
