Sean Casey        

Filmmaker & Storm Chaser; Creator of "Tornado Alley" and "Extreme Weather"

Sean Casey has a taste for the extreme. He is the intrepid filmmaker, creator of the Tornado Intercept Vehicle and former star of the hit Discovery Channel series Storm Chasers. Casey's most recent IMAX films include Tornado Alley, about chasing tornadoes, and Extreme Weather. Casey was named one of the 50 best minds of 2008 by Discover Magazine.

Mr. Casey's drive and determination to make an IMAX film on tornadoes has been honed through years of traveling the world filming Nature's most challenging and spectacular events. From great white sharks feeding off the Southern Australian coast to lions on the hunt in the African Serengeti, from the peaks of active volcanoes in the Caribbean isles to the devastating 1999 earthquake in Turkey, from the massive wildfires of California to the hurricanes off the gulf coast, he has experienced and filmed it all to share his wonder of the world with Imax audiences around the planet.

Sean Casey graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara with a degree in film studies as well as pursuing post-grad studies at the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. Prior to working in the IMAX format, he directed and produced documentaries on the training of U.S. military units, including the best selling Marines: Earning the Title documenting Marine Corps boot camp, as well as the more elite units of Navy Seals, Marine Force Reconnaissance, and the US Army Rangers. He also directed music videos for Rilo Kiley and the Violent Femmes.

Mr. Casey has also created two companies: Bushrag, which manufactures specialty camouflage products and Blackink, which creates, prints and distributes military themed t-shirts.
