After eight years, filmmaker Sean Casey has finished his IMAX film Tornado Alley, for which he served as Director, first unit Cinematographer, and Editor. The movie is currently playing in museums and science centers throughout the country, and will continue to open in new theaters throughout 2012.
After graduating from the University of California Santa Barbara with a degree in Film Studies, Casey immediately began working in the IMAX format. His credits include Ring of Fire, Search for the Great Sharks, Africa: The Serengeti, Alaska: Spirit of the Wild, Amazing Journeys, and Forces of Nature.
Casey has directed a number of television documentaries including Marine: Earning The Title, The Art of Camouflage, and The U.S. Army Ranger, as well as music videos for The Violent Femmes, Pond and Rilo Kiley.
In addition, Casey is an inventor of sorts, having designed two tornado intercept vehicles, or TIVs. Sean and the TIVs have appeared in "Tornado Intercept" for National Geographic and for the last 5 years on Discovery Channel's "Storm Chasers."
Sean is currently moving from his home town of Los Angeles to Northern California. The new house has a second structure perfectly suited for large fabrication projects. One of the first builds will be TIV3 for the sequel to "Tornado Alley."
