About Me.

My name is Chris Hanel, and this is where I retreat to when the things I have to share require more than 140 characters.

I’m a designer by trade. In 2014, I started Support Class, a group that develops solutions for professional livestreams.

Before heading out on my own, I worked at Carbine Studios for three years - first as a Content Designer, and then becoming a Senior Cinematics Designer, overseeing the scripting and implementation of cinematics, developing tools and workflows for our internal machinima production, supplying editing and post-production for our marketing content, and producing our official livestream.

I’ve also worked at Full Tilt Poker (pre-Black Friday), written for Rifftrax, put in time as a filmmaker and VFX Supervisor, and created a webcomic. I am, as one job interviewer once put it, “…a bit hard to nail down”.

I was born and raised in Iowa. Yes, the state with the corn. No, I didn’t live on a farm.

I’m married to a lovely lady who is much cooler than I am.

You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Dribbble, and Linkedin.
