Boat Rocker Buys Jam Filled

Animation company will strengthen Boat Rocker’s content capabilities.


As part of the deal, Jam Filled’s founding partners–Kyle Mac Dougall, president, and creative directors Jamie Leclaire and Phil Lafrance–will remain with the company and retain their current titles. Jam Filled will also continue to operate under its current brand.

Meanwhile, Boat Rocker will provide capital investment and business support to Jam Filled to execute a strategic growth initiative of the studio’s current 2D animation capacity while also expanding its capabilities to include 3D animation.

Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

"With more than 150 outstanding animators, the acquisition of Jam Filled will not only allow Boat Rocker to expand its animation services capabilities, but will also allow us to add to our original programming strength in the kids and family arena, complementing the teams within Radical Sheep

and Industrial Brothers," says John Young, chief executive officer, Boat Rocker. “With these expanded capabilities, Boat Rocker can offer kids and family creators, broadcasters, toy companies and brands one integrated solution, solidifying Boat Rocker's position as a global leader in the development, creation and production of kids and family animation for all platforms.”
