Balmur Entertainment, a music management and publishing company owned by singer-performer Anne Murray, has acquired Evening Sky Productions and The Animation House in an effort to produce original animated series, live-action family entertainment and music-driven television specials for global distribution. Evening Sky (headed by David and Mary Corbett) and Animation House (headed by Bob Fortier) will merge to become a wholly-owned division of Balmur Entertainment and will operate as Evening Sky Productions. As a result of the acquisitions, Los Angeles-based Evening Sky will move their headquarters to the Toronto-based Animation House while maintaining a development office in LA. Corbett, who is now the President and CEO of the consolidated Evening Sky, stated, I am extremely pleased to be part of Balmur Entertainment Ltd. Balmur has built a worldwide reputation for excellence in the world of music publishing and the production of first-class television specials. At the same time, The Animation House is highly regarded worldwide as a leader in commercial animation production. Our combined forces instantly create a company of unlimited potential in the significant family television marketplace.
