Animation studio Yeti Farm Creative has recently expended into a 7 thousand sqft open space, state of the art, dark fibre geothermal studio situated in the tech district of Kelowna, British Columbia. The area is known in some circles as Silicon Vineyard due to the number of animation, digital, and tech companies sharing the region with world class wineries. Yeti Farm Creative’s new home brings them closer to other industry giants such as Disney Interactive, Bardel Entertainment, and Hyper Hippo Games.
The studio has also launched a digital-first animation production and distribution company called YetiLABS, which is responsible for two original digital-first productions on Facebook and Youtube called Knobs and Sweet Tweets. Knobs in particular has already garnered 200,000 views in less than a month of its launch.
“It is an exciting time at Yeti Farm Creative and YetiLABS,” says Ramsay. She explains that over the past eight years, the team at Yeti Farm Creative has been quietly building momentum for both production services, original content development and digital rights acquisition. “We have strategically managed our growth. We hired the right people, found the right location for our new studio, and we made sure that we attracted key partners.” She adds: “We knew that to fully meet our long-term business and creative objectives, we wanted to balance production services with the investment in developing our own original work. We also had to make sure that we continued to provide the world-class quality of work that our clients expect, while we were growing and expanding. Our client feedback and growing client roster tells us that we have done all of that and more.”
