Claire Finn will be responsible for growing the studio’s development and expanding its production slate, focusing on children’s and family content.

She joins Kilkenny-based Lighthouse, a joint venture between Canada’s Mercury Filmworks and Ireland’s Cartoon Saloon, from Firecracker where she was head of content and executive producer of branded entertainment.

Finn arrives at the studio as it finishes up on Bug Diaries, a preschool animated comedy for Amazon based on the books by Doreen Cronin. Prior to Firecracker, she has held roles at UK pubcaster Channel 4’s in-house agency 4Creative, and agency R/GA London.

“Lighthouse now can continue with confidence to create a truly creative studio and contribute to making Kilkenny a centre of excellence in animation production, drawing talent from all over the world,” said Cartoon Saloon CEO Paul Young.
