Producer/distributor Portfolio Entertainment has launched Portfolio Animation — a new creative-driven studio located in Toronto’s King West district. The ultra-modern studio, which encompasses 9,000 square feet, is part of the company’s multi-faceted expansion plan commenced in 2014. Portfolio’s corporate office has also relocated to the new facility.
Portfolio Animation already has three projects in its pipeline, and the company is currently meeting with international co-producers and networks to invite more projects. Senior Vice President of Production Julie Stall is leading the studio, along with Head of Studio Operations Sonya Carey. Dave Beatty serves as Senior Producer and is acting as showrunner for Portfolio Animation’s first series, Freaktown.
