Kyle MacDougall is President of Jam Filled, a premier full-service animation company that partners with creators, producers, brands and broadcasters in both 2D and CG content across all platforms and genres.
Kyle began his career in 1993 and worked in the video game, advertising and television industries. He started out as an artist, became a producer, entrepreneur, and ultimately, a studio builder. He was one of the pioneers involved in the transition of the traditional animation pipeline to 2D Digital and has advocated for the training and development of artists and animators for over 20 years. He works with both the Bachelor of Animation Advisory Council at Sheridan College and the Algonquin College Animation Advisory Board.
In 2008, he joined the two co-founders of Jam Filled Entertainment, to build one of the most respected, artist-run and creative driven animation companies in the industry today with studios in Ottawa, Toronto and Halifax. Key brands include: The Loud House (Nickelodeon), The Casagrandes (Nickelodeon), Thomas & Friends (Mattel/Netflix), Rusty Rivets (Spin Master/Nick Jr), DC Super Hero Girls (WB/Cartoon Network), Bubble Guppies (Nick Jr), and Final Space (ShadowMachine/TBS/Netflix).
Jam Filled Entertainment (Halifax)
In 2007, three guys decided to build a studio that they would want to work for. Jam Filled has since expanded from a modest 400-square-foot attic in rural Manotick to a fully-operational, multi-production animation company with studios in Ottawa, Toronto and Halifax. A dynamic workplace for like-minded creative artists, Jam Filled will remind you why you love cartooning: every project is produced with an eye for quality and an ear for fun!
Jam Filled proudly joined the Boat Rocker Media Group family in 2016, which allowed the studio to spread its wings and grow as it continues to produce the highest quality animation and original content in the country.
Boat Rocker is an independent, integrated global entertainment company that harnesses the power of creativity and commerce to tell stories and build iconic brands for audiences around the world.
