Emmy Award-winning animation company Titmouse has announced two key executive appointments and plans to move into a new Vancouver location to support its continued growth across North America. The new office is in Mt. Pleasant (a few blocks from the current location) and will open early next year, bringing nearly 300 artists under one roof.
Relocating from Los Angeles to supervise Titmouse Canada animation production — including three key series — is Jennifer Ray, Vice President and Head of Production, who will train up a new generation of producers while optimizing productivity and operational efficiency. During seven years at Titmouse, Ray has amassed an animation production credits list including The Venture Bros., Turbo FAST and Son of Zorn.
“I’m excited to bring my 14 years of animation experience to Vancouver and foster Titmouse’s reputation of promoting artist advocacy and creativity,” said Ray. “As the first female to be promoted to this role in our Canadian studio, I am honored to help advance Titmouse’s exceptional brand of quality, both in animated content and production service.”
As the Vancouver studio has grown since its establishment in 2013, so has the role of Kevin Gamble, who was recently promoted to Vice President and Supervising Producer. In this position, Gamble will focus on sales, overall studio growth and management strategy.
“With three major animated series in production, we are on track to have over 300 artists in-house by the end of the year. This is a significant staff increase, having started with 30 artists five years ago,” said Gamble. “Having Jen Ray here to help guide the ship as head of production is fantastic. She is a great asset to our production workflow, and we couldn’t be more excited!”
Titmouse founder and owner, Chris Prynoski. added, “From Superjail!, Motorcity, Turbo FAST, Son of Zorn, Tigtone to Venture Bros., and many more, Jen is an incredible leader. I’m incredibly excited to have her oversee the Titmouse Canada animation pipeline and implement her producing expertise with the ever-expanding Canadian team!”
