Director Biography - Devin Keane

Devin Keane is a biomedical science student, animator, and electronic music keyboardist who has worked in television, film, and video in the Austin area over the last 8 years, often under his company and its subsidiary: Veracity Productions LLC and Old School Productions. Over this time, he has filmed many live performances and several music videos for bands, including his own -- Orphica.

He actively worked in Austin's film industry from 2009 - 2011 as a production illustrator, production designer, unit production manager, and producer for various projects such as "The 2 Bobs," "Cherry Bomb," and commercials for Nike and World Wildlife Fund while creating his own comedy short featuring kid actor, Ryan Lee, a sketch about how to make yourself sick in order to get out of school the next day.

Devin began to specialize in healthcare media projects after teaming up with DiviTree Media in 2010, creating promotional and educational content for Diabetes America and Canon Medical Imaging, eventually creating promotional content for the Susan G. Komen Foundation in 2013. It was during this healthcare-oriented work that he was inspired to return to school to pursue a career in biomedical engineering and research.

Today, Devin is a full-time student who is interested in induced pluripotent stem cells, aging, and cancer research. He still creates videos under Veracity Productions LLC and Old School Productions.

Director Statement

There is no animation like hand-drawn animation. Today's use of computers has significantly changed animation, but I believe it often loses touch with its roots -- it was meant to be a more imperfect, organic craft, where the use of frame by frame motion, squash/stretch, etc. contributed a whole lot more to the characters than much of today's dialogue-based, vector/tablet animated cartoons. Making this music video really put me in touch with why I've loved traditional animation all these years, and I'll continue to do it even throughout my science career.
