Canada’s Mainframe Studios has promoted Kim Dent Wilder into a newly created EVP role that will see her working to infuse the Wow! Unlimited Media subsidiary’s film and TV productions with new talent.
Over the last year, Dent Wilder has been instrumental in hiring more than 150 artists bringing Mainframe’s total workforce to 535, according to a release. In her new role, she will oversee all production, crews and operations of the studio and its culture.
She previously served as SVP of productions and operations, overseeing Mainframe productions including DreamWorks Animation series Madagascar: A Little Wild, Silvergate’s Octonauts series and specials, Netflix original series Spy Kids: Mission Critical, Mattel’s Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures, and feature films Escape from Planet Earth and Ratchet and Clank.
This promotion comes into effect as the studio strives to potentially double its animation team over the next few years.
