CREATOR + DIRECTOR + WRITER
Visionary writer/director R.T. Thorne has emerged as one of Canada's most eclectic storytellers since debuting on the music video filmmaking scene over a decade ago. He is the Creator, Executive Producer, director, and co-writer of UTOPIA FALLS, a genre bending, Afrofuturistic science fiction series, that premiered as a HULU Original in 2020.
Known for his acute connection to underground culture, and a reputation of bold but emotionally driven visuals R.T. has been tapped to direct television for NBCUniversal, Netflix, Disney, HULU and Bell Media. His international episodic television work has taken him to three continents, earning him two Canadian screen award nominations, and a Directors Guild of Canada nomination.
After winning 17 International music video awards, and working with international mu- sic artists like Drake & Snoop Dogg, R.T. moved into long form filmmaking in 2012. In 2015 he wrote, directed and co-produced THE TIME TRAVELER, which won best short film at the Canadian Film Festival. In 2018 R.T. was accepted to the prestigious Toronto International Film Festivals Talent Lab to develop his debut feature.
R.T. continues to follow his passion for storytelling, creating & developing commercially viable filmmaking properties from diverse cultural perspectives.
