ABC News interviews filmmaker and storm chaser, Sean Casey, on his quest to capture tornadoes on film. His latest project for IMAX and Giant Screen theaters, Tornado Alley, will examine tornadoes, the people they attract, the scientists who study them, and the awesome spectacle they create. His work can also be seen on the Discovery Channel show, “Storm Chasers.”
For years, filmmaker Casey has been chasing a seemingly impossible dream. To complete his latest project, an IMAX documentary on tornadoes, he needs one final elusive shot.
“I want to get a shot of a tornado coming directly at you and impacting,” said Casey. “That is the holy grail.”
ABC News’ feature also contains an accompanying video on Sean and fellow tornado chaser and meteorologist, Josh Wurman.
UPDATE: A short mention of Sean Casey’s TIV2, the vehicle used to ride into and film tornadoes, appears in ShortNews.com:
Storm chaser Sean Casey is fine-tuning his attempt at getting the shot of a lifetime by investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in the TIV2, a ten-wheel drive, 16,500-pound vehicle that will be used to drive directly into a tornado.
