About

The Thunderbird is a mythological creature born from the rich narrative tradition of Canada’s First Nations people in the Pacific Northwest. The Thunderbird is often carved at the top of totem poles, which bring communities together to illustrate their stories.

The artwork, which depicts abstract elements of the Thunderbird legend, was commissioned from First Nations artist Corrine Hunt for Vancouver-based television production company Thunderbird. Hunt, also the co-creator of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic medals, captures the story of the company’s namesake, while honouring her roots and cultivating a refreshing artistic expression.

Thunderbird Entertainment is a rapidly growing Vancouver-based multiplatform entertainment company with offices in Los Angeles, Toronto and London. Thunderbird creates award-winning programming for Canadian and International broadcasters and boasts divisions in scripted and unscripted development and production, theatrical distribution, and animation.

Thunderbird’s most recent projects include the upcoming Blade Runner 2049 starring Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford, hit Canadian comedy Kim’s Convenience and the animated Netflix original series Beat Bugs, featuring reimagined songs from the Beatles catalogue featuring artists such as Sia, Eddie Vedder and P!nk.
