Thor’s approach toward direction is heavily influenced by the years in production. “I learned how to treat people. Filmmaking for med is a giant team effort and a director needs to inspire the team to give its best at all times. I love my job and want those around me to have a good time on the set.”

In terms of style, Thor’s work defies simple categorization, but much of it involves character-driven stories, sometimes told through breathtaking action. “It all comes down to my personal connection with the idea or the script. I need to feel inspired and motivated by the creativity, whether it’s an all-out action spot, a car film or a more moody, visual piece. It’s always about finding the story, connecting with it and translating that to the audience.”
