Bardel brings animation studio to Kelowna

Supported by funding from First West Capital, Bardel Entertainment, a Vancouver-based animation studio, recently announced plans to expand its operations into Kelowna.

Slated to officially open in January 2012, the new satellite office is currently set up to accommodate a dozen animators and editors with plans to further expand over the next three years to house up to 50 employees.

Bardel considered several other cities in B.C. for its expansion plans but eventually selected Kelowna for a variety of reasons that include the ability to recruit from a growing pool of talented animators in the region, particularly now that companies such as Club Penguin are well established.
