Dennis BeardHi! I’m Dennis Beard. I’m a 2D / 3D Motion Graphics & Video Production Artist with 20+ years of professional creative experience. Currently I work for Southeastern Grocers as the Manager of Graphics and Media within their Training and Development department.

I have also had the opportunity to work with organizations ranging from dotcom startups, small and medium sized creative agencies, large corporations, which includes Mary Kay Corporate HQ, the Department of Defense where I was a lead animator working on the V-22 War Fighter Platform and the Department of Homeland Security where I was chosen to lead a team of Animators to develop training for the HMX-1 Presidential Helicopter Program.

I am married to a loving and beautiful woman who supports me with all of my creative endeavors. We have three amazing children that are the center of our lives. In 2012 we relocated our family back to the Jacksonville, Florida area and bought a home in Atlantic Beach where we are actively involved with the Atlantic Beach Elementary School and Cub Scout Pack 37 where I am their Cubmaster.

While inside the studio and on set, I focus my energy on complex yet fun tasks which includes:

  • Scoping projects, script writing, storyboarding and shot list creation
  • Scouting locations, determining equipment needs, casting talent and scheduling
  • Setting up lighting and cameras, directing actors, getting B-roll footage and ensuring safety on the set
  • Media management, editing footage, sound design / engineering and voice over work
  • Post effects, motion graphics, kinetic typography and color grading / correcting
  • 3D modeling, lighting and rendering
  • Compositing video shot in a chroma key studio

Outside the studio, I enjoy a low-tech contrast set of activities which includes: spending quality time with my family, attending local sporting events, collecting vintage skateboards, riding my beach cruiser, camping and fishing.

If you have any questions about what I can do for you, want to give feedback, or just say hello, you can contact me at
