Charlene Kelly

Chief Intellectual Officer of Winvest Group | Head of Production at IQI Media

Charlene received her Business Degree from Mount Alison University in Canada, where she worked in finance briefly. Having been a painter and artist most of her life, she decided to turn her attention towards art and completed the Animation Program at Algonquin College. She then began her film career in Toronto before moving to Los Angeles. Most of her career has been spent working in Feature Animation for several studios, including Warner Brothers, Fox Animation, and Dreamworks, on films such as All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, Space Jam, The Quest for Camelot, Anastasia, Prince of Egypt, El Dorado and Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. She had a short period as a Stop Motion animator for a CBC kids show called Poko and has had the privilege of working in most departments of the animation pipeline.

Charlene then went on to become the Associate Producer at a boutique studio in Los Angeles, managing and producing projects such as The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, Once Upon a Time Adventure (a Snow White-themed ride at Disneyland in Shanghai) and the Minion Mayhem Ride (an Illumination ride at Universal Studios) in collaboration with studios such as Warner Brothers, Walt Disney, ReelFX, and Universal/NBC. Most recently, she was the Producer on an independent CG Animated Feature Film, Next Gen, distributed by Netflix and Alibaba Pictures, and she is presently developing a couple of personal projects as well as the feature film spinoff of the popular TV series Mansour, created by Bidaya Media and backed by the Mubadala Investment Company.

Charlene’s past experiences as an artist have given her great insight into scheduling and budgeting projects, plus a better understanding of the production process on a whole. She has enjoyed the adventure of seeing a film all the way through from the first pass of the script to the release date. Being a part of a project’s creation and seeing it come alive is an experience she looks forward to time and again.
