Rainmaker Entertainment is stepping up its recruiting game.
The Vancouver, Canada-based animation studio has promoted Tara Kemes to the newly created position of VP culture and talent, charged with wooing creative and technical talent.
Kemes, most recently director of talent development, will aim to distinguish Rainmaker’s culture from rival Vancouver houses similarly chasing the animation industry’s best and brightest artists and techies.
Rainmaker needs talent for two films now in production, a Barbie DVD movie for Mattel, and a feature film based on the popular Sony PlayStation game Ratchet and Crank.
The TV division of Rainmaker, Mainframe Entertainment, is also in pre-production on Bob the Builder for HIT Entertainment, while developing a new version of the TV series ReBoot.
Kemes will cast her net for talent at SIGGRAPH, to be held in Vancouver Aug. 10 to 14.
