Born of image-crazed uber-men Sean Wallace and Jordan Mark Windsor – THUNDERLIPS is a multi-award winning image-making duo based in Auckland, New Zealand.
THUNDERLIPS are genre chameleons; they’ve made music videos in the style of a 90’s sitcom, an online teenage love story using only GIFS, a hippie samurai girl 70s cop show, a hipster tone piece, LBTQ cinema verite, a 2000s white rap hip hop video, an 80s teen horror, and an animated computer nightmare; all whilst using every capture medium you can shake a stick at from 35mm to Hi-8 video, and often making use of practical in-camera effects. They’ve made music videos that have made people LOL, become aroused, feel acutely uncomfortable and say ‘Holy shit is that the sun?!’.
THUNDERLIPS think of storytellers as modern Shaman – making sense of the nightmare realities of existence. Probing the meaning of life, healing the soul. That’s what they aspire toward in their work. They like to work socially, with lots of talking, laughing, food, and arguments.
THUNDERLIPS’ commercials for Lotto, Samsung, Speights, Meridian Energy, 2Degrees, Head & Shoulders, and many others also show-off their narrative story-telling prowess and comedic flair.
