Hi all, my name is Lucas. I live in Los Angeles and really consider myself a multimedia producer, thought I’m a decent javascript programmer, and my current title is “Front End Engineer”.

I work at a place called TakePart, which is a media company dedicated to telling stories with a social slant. We won the Oscar this year for Best Picture with a film called Spotlight. I had nothing to do with it. :smiley:

My native language is English, and I went to college for English and Creative writing.

Like a lot of people, I started out in the 90’s using HyperCard, and have been chasing that simplicity and power ever since.

My favorite design/animation tool is just HTML/CSS/SVG/JS, Hype is fast becoming indespensible for keyframe generation, but still think it needs some programmer friendly features to DRY it up. :smiley:

I’ve worked in a few different industries, Audio/Video, Gaming, Media and in Startups. I personally like storytelling and anything interactive. I consider myself and advanced media developer and mid level javascript engineer, but a beginner designer/illustrator.

So far in Hype I have built a quiz about how much Palm Oil is in our homes. It’s for a larger campaign we are running about Deforestation which launches on Monday.


Hi guys.

I am Hammer over in Western Australia. I don’t know where I am going with Hype… but there is something about it!!

I have a background in financial markets. Don’t hold that against me. I have always drawn and had a tech focus. I always wanted to get into flash, but didn’t have time. I like technology that empowers me to do more as a one man operation. I am exploring educational interactive applications. I am learning javascript and I am spending time with the Affinity Mac suite as well. I have been doing a lot with integrating apis into my own custom apps.

My wife has an app and I support the website. I am interested in integration of animation into rapid data driven apps that can benefit from better visuals.

I am hoping to offer Hype content to local web designers to amp up some of their projects.

I am a keen kitesurfer

I thank you for your newbie patience in advance :slight_smile:

Favourite Animated Film… Batman Under the Red Hood


Who are you?
Hi there! I’m Casey and I’ve studied Film Animation at School of Visual Arts in NYC.

I jump between video, web, and interactive design at my job and help my job’s designers learn new technologies such as Hype. I’ve also released a couple games under my indie company ProRattaFactor.

So far I’ve worked on the following within Hype: interactive magazine, animated infographic, vertical and horizontal 65" kiosk touch screens for trade show events, and small interactive experiences that have been included within articles.

Would you call yourself a beginner, novice, or advanced?
I’d say that I’m knowledgable about how to think through design interaction within Hype. I’ve also been programming websites since Adobe PageMill 2 was released, so I have decent html/css chops.

What’s your favorite design/animation tool (Other than Hype)?
Most days I’m using Apple Motion and After Effects. Also, Spriter is a super cool character animation tool that I enjoy.

What’s the first interaction or animation tool you ever used? (Analog OR digital!)
Macromedia Director 5

What is your favorite animated film?
Hunchback of Notre Dame


I’m Greg, a web developer from Massachusetts. Primarily, I build and maintain WordPress sites for design agencies. I bought Hype to simplify the creation of a simple animated element in a new project. Sadly, it may not end up filling the bill, requiring me to redo it by hand.


I am Emanáku, I manage a couple of websites made with WordPress and currently I live in Peru with a rather slow internet connection.
I speak German, English and (un poco) Spanish.
A decade or more ago I made eLearning software, e.g. with Flash, PHP, MySQL.
Now I want to do some games with Hype.
I do computer science and programming stuff since 1980 :wink:
And my favorite animated film is Bolt - the dog with super powers :wink:

Thank you!


I’m Rick (4)F. van Koert. I like cats, shiny wrappings, Science Fiction (movies), working with 3D, my aging mid 2010 MacPro’s and playing games like EVE, Dying light, the Forest, Deus Ex, Fallout etc…

I have been ‘playing’ with Hype since version 1 but never serious. Since I changed some things on my website, gobbled everything up and moved it into a forum, the things I made with Flash before became a too big security risk, so I recently “picked up” Hype 3.5 and am now seriously working on moving my old Flash stuff over to HTML5.

- What is your industry/profession?
Retired Illustrator who can’t stop so I’m semi-retired I guess :).

- Where do you call home?
Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

- What is your native language?
Dutch with fluent English writing (speaking that’s an whole other thing) and I can understand German quite good.

- What have you made with Hype – or what are you planning on using Hype for? (Feel free to post screenshots or links!)
That’s a secret. :wink: But it’s quite a lot of work converting my old flash movies to HTML5.

- Would you call yourself a beginner, novice, or advanced?
Absolute beginner, so I probably need a lot of help.

- What’s your favorite design/animation tool (Other than Hype)?
2D? Photoshop I guess… Stuck with CS5.1 The company behind it sadly went evil. Have been using it since version 1.5 ( floppy disks!! :smile: ). But I’m not going to support a tool that gets taken away the moment you stop paying for it. :unamused:

3D: Cinema 4D. :blush:

- What’s the first interaction or animation tool you ever used? (Analog OR digital!)
Can’t remember the name, it still lives on the PC side but it was an QuickTime VR program that let you create hotspots with links and ambient directional sound in QT movies. It’s sadly dead on the Mac side as Apple completely dropped the ball on QT, thank heavens I still have QuickTime Player 7…

- What is your favorite animated film?
To tell you a secret, I’m not that much into animated film but there where a few Blur studio shorts years ago I liked very much like “In the rough” and “Rockfish”.



Hey all-
Brand new to Hype and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! So smooth, easy to use, elegant and thorough. I feel like I know a cool secret now. Super impressed.

My name is Nader Ashway. I’m a creative director and an owner of a small agency in New York City. I also teach on the graduate level at New York University.

Born and raised and lived my whole life in and around New York City.

Native English speaker and also speak conversational Arabic.

Currently using Hype for digital advertising banners - and will likely continue to use it!

While I’m a beginner with Hype, I have had years of experience with Flash. Since its untimely death, I have been searching for the best interface to create H5. I have only limited coding knowledge, so Greensock wasn’t really an option. Animate is just like Flash in terms of interface, but the files it output didn’t work across all browsers. Google Web Designer seemed like a promising option, especially in the way it output the files, but MAN, is it buggy or what? Plus, there’s NO flexibility for typography (a big deal for me.) So here comes Hype - the perfect blend of easy and smart interface, robust control for typography, images and animation, and snappy output. (Well, except for the file size issues, but I’m sure they’re working on it.)

I think Wall-E might be my favorite animated movie. That, or Yellow Submarine!


Hello Everone,
My name is Kelvin. I purchased Hype a while ago because I thought it was awesome (welll I still think it’s awesome).

I haven’t had much use for it until now so I’m glad I got it when I did.

I’ll be using Hype for an animated webcomicproject that I’m working on so I’m looking to leverage the knowledge of all the great folks here.

Looking forward.


Hi. I’m Mike. I’m a designer and educator from Toronto. I have worked as a teacher/trainer but more recently my energy has been focused on graphics, websites and video. I recently started exploring e-learning as a potential career move - and I’m really excited about creating media for education and training materials. So I found Hype after doing some research. So far so good. I used Edge Animate previously which was very similar.

My most recent project is called “Scots to Canada” and it’s part of my e-learning portfolio. Essentially, I’m building an online course using WordPress and creating all the content. It’s partly research into my family history as well. Check it out if yu have a moment.

There’s an animation of a ship crossing the Atlantic which I built in Hype. It’s not finished but it’s close. Hope you like it!


Looking forward to collaborations and offering help or advice when I can.



Hey guys,

my name is Timo and I am totally new to Hype. I work in the PC and network sector, so no experience in programming and stuff. But I tried Hype and I was flashed of the things you can do with it.

Regards, Timo


Finally took some time to introduce myself…:

  • I’m René Overhorst. Born 1975, year of the rabbit!
  • Part-time Sound-Designer, part-time composer and fulltime father of three children.
  • My home resides in downtown Utrecht. That’s a small city in the center of the Netherlands. It’s far more beautiful than Amsterdam, with great medieval canals and buildings.
  • I speak Dutch, English, midi, java and html.
  • I make mobile apps with Hype. You can find them in Apple’s AppStore.

I build these apps together with my girlfriend Hanneke. She draws, I animate. We do these in our spare-time for fun.
