Rainmaker names Mainframe production chief

Kylie EllisCanadian animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment has promoted Kylie Ellis to vice president, production at its TV division, Mainframe Entertainment.

The newly-created position means Ellis will work on Mainframe’s original content and service work productions, reporting to Rainmaker’s senior VP, production and operations Kim Dent Wilder.

She currently oversees Rainmaker’s 104x10mins episodes of Hit Entertainment’s Bob the Builder reboot.

Mainframe was launched after Michael Hefferon took over at Rainmaker two years ago and re-targeted television as a core business source for the Vancouver-based studio, which had been focusing on feature films such as Escape from Planet Earth.

“Kylie has proven herself to be invaluable to the company with her commitment to innovation, creativity and professionalism, and her well-deserved promotion and increased responsibilities will support the company’s developments, original productions and work for hire projects,” said Dent Wilder.
