Dave Beatty

After years in the entertainment business, Dave’s seem to have done it all. From live action concerts & comedy to animation & puppets of all sorts there isn’t much Dave hasn’t done.

As former Creative Head of Studio for Portfolio Entertainment, Dave produced the animated comedy Freaktown (Teletoon), Doki (Discovery Kids Latin America), and a number of specials for The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! (PBS/Treehouse).

Prior to this, Dave produced Johnny Test (Teletoon & CN) and Glenn Martin DDS (CityTV & Nickelodeon). He also founded Story City – a leading Toronto pre-production studio specializing in design, boarding, editing & post production. Dave’s live-action experience includes a number of years as in-house producer and director YTV Canada. Dave earned his comedy chops working with the talented team on SCTV. He’s earned Daytime Emmy Award nominations and Canadian Screen Awards for his work.

What’s his secret sauce?

Dave’s a little salty, but always serves up a savory treat. He produces at the highest level and won’t quit until he knows it’s right. Plus, he’s pretty funny. Oh and if he suddenly screams “Bakugan Brawl”, don’t worry he’s in the middle of a series reboot…
