“Lights, Camry, Sirius XM” Nominated for 2022 Best Commercial Film

We’ve been nominated! Thunder’s XR stage and XR services are recognized by this year’s International Motor Film Awards, the Oscars for the motoring world, for “Best Commercial Film.” Thunder Studios partnered with Toyota, SiriusXM, and Sweatpants Media to create a wild ride for viewers who could upload a selfie and find themselves in the driver’s seat of a car commercial with actor/comedian Adam Rose. Along with the commercial film, the production team created a website with completely new face-swapping technology. It’s a real-life Face/Off!


Astral Clash 🌌✨🪐♀️

Thunder’s mobile broadcasting team joined global esports organization Gen.G and gaming community Galorants, in partnership with Tampax and Always, to break down gendered stigmas and launch the Astral Clash tournament series. Some of the best women and nonbinary Valorant players in North America participated in the tournament that began with two online qualifier events before the live finals event was held in the Thunder Esports Arena on August 6th. Thunder provided the venue, broadcast services, control room, cameras, graphics, replays, transmission, and crewing services. The team also assisted with the run of show, lending our extensive production expertise. Special kudos to Candela Rebot and Rolando Nichols who were hard at work for the duration of the successful 10hrs+ live broadcast!
