Kindle Entertainment

Director of Production

Val Ames

With more years experience in the television industry than she cares to remember, Valerie Ames has covered every conceivable inch of the business (or it certainly feels like that!) from childrens and animation to sport, factual, entertainment and drama for both indies and broadcasters.

Her freelance work took her from rostrum cameraperson, via most roles in the production office to Producer, and, in a permanent capacity, she has been Head of Production at Mentorn Films and Head of Production for Children’s and International at Carlton TV so is equally at home working in the UK and internationally.

She is currently Director of Production for Kindle Entertainment Limited, a position she has held since Kindle’s beginning in 2007, overseeing all their output for children’s, family and prime time including comedy, drama, pre-school, animation and factual. Kindle is a successful independent production company that has won numerous awards including several Baftas and two International Emmys.
