ERIC BYFORD

Eric Byford  is a man on a dream-chasing mission. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee’s Communication Department with a major in Broadcasting. It is here where he fell in love with the camera and the art of storytelling. His path led him  to music  as a DJ and a nightclub owner but the itch to get into film never relinquished itself. After selling the nightclub and venturing into the corporate world and  real estate , his dream of becoming a filmmaker turned into reality in the fall of 2012 when he decided it was time to quit wondering and prove to himself and his three sons that a dream can be worth pursuing by enrolling in film school. He went on to create a series called “Straight Up” which focuses on the impact alcohol has made on the world economically, politically, and socially. It was in film school and through his work on his first documentary, “Straight Up: Tennessee Whiskey” that gave birth to BeardForce Films.  He started BeardForce Films to give him and his colleagues an outlet for future productions and a voice in the film community. He founded the company on the belief of passion, creativity, professionalism, and dedication could marry them into a successful venture of filmmaking. He has earned several awards and been selected for several more film festivals regarding his Tennessee Whiskey project. He is currently in production on the next installment of Straight Up: Kentucky Bourbon. The dreamer is still dreaming and continuing on his quest to make BeardForce Films a successful film company and give life to stories for the world to enjoy.
