Sean Casey

Filmmaker, Sean Casey Productions

From hearing the rumble of ice blocks shearing off the edge of a glacier to seeing the destructive power of a tornado’s swirling winds or watching flames devour a forest as if it were so many matchsticks, Sean Casey’s job is to capture some of nature’s most violent moments - camera in hand. 

An American IMAX filmmaker and storm chaser, he’s appeared on the Discovery Channel series Storm Chasers and has directed numerous films including the IMAX film: Tornado Alley. Chasing storms since 1999, Casey has been named one of the 50 best minds of 2008 by Discover Magazine.
