Ayo! I’m Alex Gickler, a Freshman Animation major from Princeton Iowa. I went into this because my two passions are video editing and art, and it’s been one of the best decisions in my life. Whenever I’m not in class I’m usually drawing or editing videos for fun. While a lot of people find video editing in particular boring or nightmarish, I find it very relaxing and one of the most versatile forms of creativity. Aside from things related to my major, I also enjoy videogames of all types, and composing music. Most of the music I make is simple, but I’m trying to branch out to music I may be able to use in future animations. I hope to be able to work on storyboarding or general video production in the future.
