Spring Into #Action 🎬

Giving Back to the Community

A hot meal and a lotta love (and a community we’re grateful to share it with) 🌮

Last week Thunder partnered with one of the founders of the gourmet food truck movement, Chef Roy Choi x @kogibbq and @voodooranger to give out a yummy, tasty, free meal to our friends and family in the hospitality industry.

The event brought out more than 1,000 delighted attendees who remained intheir cars for the COVID safe drive-thru experience.

One Year Ago Today…

Elon Musk’s Space X Commercial for Super Bowl LV (2021)

Set life as we know it changed dramatically this time last year. Thunder was quick to spring into action updating our stage policies, health and safety protocols, and studio guidelines to create safe production spaces. A year later, we are grateful for clients like director/actress Bryce Dallas Howard(for the Space X Super Bowl LV project) who believe in Thunder’s ability toprovide industry-leading, COVID safe production environments.
