Innovative Animation Studio Growing Kelowna’s Tech Economy
Apr 20 2016

Overlooking City Park, in a newly renovated 9,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, characters from production powerhouses such as DreamWorks, Nickelodeon, and Disney are coming to life in downtown Kelowna.

The Okanagan is becoming a high-tech hub in animation, and Bardel Entertainment is helping lead the way. In 2012, Bardel expanded their operations to include Kelowna and in just 3 1/2 years, they’ve grown from 4 to 54 local employees. Their two Vancouver studios house 600 employees with more growth on the horizon.
