Thunderbird feature image (by Emilia Schneider)


Animated insert for a Netflix documentary

Through Kilogramme Animation Studio I was involved in creating an animated insert for the Netflix documentary series “Earthstorm“. It portrays a traditional Native American folklore tale explaining the cause of earthquakes. As the legend has it a huge eagle flies out to sea, picks up the biggest whale it can find and drops it from the tallest mountain. I‘m no expert, but I‘m guessing that would create a bit of a commotion. The mythical eagle is called a Thunderbird, hence it is the title of this project.


My main task was animating and comping the project, but I also did sketches for some of the scenes. Here they are.
