Who We Are

     
Chad Arentz   Partner / Creative Director   Matt Beekman   Partner / Design Director
     

Chad-Arentz-2Chad was taken by the advertising field while still in design school.  After graduation, and a year of ad design, a small FOX affiliate in York Pennsylvania stole him away to create a studio set for their new children’s show. From that point on, the hook was in.  Chad began to plot his course for a bright future in the television field, by training himself in almost every aspect of TV production and promotion.  Starting as a graphic designer, he quickly ascended to Art Director at FOX43, then to Promotion Director of WYOU in Scranton (where he met and worked with Matt Beekman). Next, Creative Director of a regional news network in New York. It was a wild nine years that earned him numerous awards, and brought lots of priceless experiences. 

 

In 1998, Chad moved his family back to Central Pennsylvania.  As Director of Motion Design, he helped position Cinemagic as a leader in the field of broadcast design, creating news graphics packages and visual brands for over 30 television stations in markets all over the U.S.  Also at Cinemagic, he produced numerous TV commercials, interactive DVD UI's for MTV, VH1, Sports Illustrated and motion UI graphics for NFL Network and Gotuit VOD.

  Matt-Beekman

It's been over 20 years since a fresh designer from Pennsylvania named Matthew Beekman graduated from Wilkes University with his B.F.A. degree and a passion for design. A local CBS affiliate needed a graphic designer, and with great enthusiasm, Matt accepted the offer. Learning every program he could get his hands on, he applied them to the design of news packages,sporting events, and commercial production.

 

Next, a new challenge... interactive media. Matt took what he learned from designing television to a brand new technology, DVD. As a Creative Director with a fledgling multimedia dept., the word soon spread, and before he knew it, he was designing creative motion menus for top Hollywood studios, major music labels, and some of the largest released DVD¹s of all time.

 

Along with JMD work, Matt is currently managing a team of 13 artists as Graphics Manager for a world-wide leading greeting card company. He is also sharing his knowledge by teaching 3D animation at his alma-mater, Wilkes University.
