It’s been nine months since I’ve ranted on this subject and I think now is the perfect time to revisit it. By now you all know of my undying support for rock legend Jon Mikl Thor and his quest for world domination. Any chance I see to give him a shout out, I will always try my best to do so. It’s with great pleasure that I announce the launch of an amazing crowdfunding campaign to help with the completion of the tour documentary THOR: RETURN OF THE THUNDERHAWK.
In 2015, director Ryan Wise gave us the documentary I AM THOR, an unflinching account of Thor’s comeback after having been in retirement for nearly ten years. Mounting such an ambitious attempt to stardom after having given up wasn’t an easy task. Cameras followed him and his band for nearly fifteen years and some major life-changing events occur within the context of the film. After a successful launch at Slamdance, the film continued to garner critical acclaim and has played all over the world. The film is currently available on DVD/Blu-Ray and can be purchased on Amazon, Best Buy, or numerous other outlets. In fact, if you’re a Netflix subscriber, you can watch the film right now.
There’s also a group of fans who were introduced to Thor and his music through the motion pictures he’s starred in. RECRUITS, ZOMBIE NIGHTMARE, and ROCK & ROLL NIGHTMARE are now classics in the genre and the films have a rabid fanbase.
In celebration of the film’s release (as well as the release of his latest album METAL AVENGER) Jon Mikl launched a major tour, traveling around the world to deliver the type of show his fans of have come to expect from him. Cameras captured many of these shows and thus THOR: RETURN OF THE THUNDERHAWK was born. The film is nearly complete but some funds are still needed to help wrap up post. Thor is asking his fans to dig deep into their pockets and help him to complete what is sure to be a fantastic film. In return for your donation, their are some amazing perks being offered, including stage-worn masks, signed CD’s, vinyl, t-shirts, and much, much more. The campaign just launched last week and there’s still lots of time to donate. Don’t wait too long, you don’t want to miss out on being a part of a film which is bound to kick all kinds of ass.
So visit the official Kickstarter page for the campaign, and if you can’t donate, please share the page with anyone you may know.
