Alex Gickler

Animation Sophomore – 2024

Ayo! I’m Alex Gickler, a sophomore 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. I’ve been hugely inspired by a lot of different things, and alot of my work reflects just how quickly that inspiration can shift. I try to have alot of fun with what I make, and so far it’s been a blast.
