CENTRAL OKANAGAN - Yeti Farm Creative, an animation studio based in Kelowna, has announced a serious expansion and the the completion of two original digital first productions.
The company recently expanded into a 7,000-square-foot facility dark fibre studio in downtown Kelowna, Okanagan film commissioner Jon Summerland says in a press release.
The company also announced the formation of YetLABS, which owner Ashley Ramsay describes as 'fully immersed and committed to producing and distributing our content for these platforms as they emerge and develop in real time'.
Yeti Farm Creative has been around since 2007 providing production services to industry leaders such as Atomic Cartoons, DDB Canada, EA Sports and Kickstart Entertainment. Now YetiLABS has three original digital productions in the works, with two original television properties in development, Summerland says.
The first one is as an edgy youth-based comedy called Knobs, aimed at 14 to 18 year olds, while the other is Sweet Tweets, episodes of nursery rhymes reworked for infants and millennial parents.
