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
