About Thor F. Jensen
From graffiti artist, to world record holding adventurer:
I started out by thatching roofs, a discipline of hard work and old traditions.
I loved the outdoors and took pride in my work, but it never entirely satisfied my creative gifts.
Off work, I would practice my artistic passion – Graffiti.
When I started at the age of 12, I was determined to become one of the best graffiti artists in Copenhagen. At 21, I had reached my goal, by being persistent and innovative.
Today my work still inspires new generations.
Seeking new adventures, I moved to Venezuela.
Here I worked two years in a travel company. I loved sharing my knowledge and guiding tours for students and VIP’s. I developed courses in jungle survival, and trained new guides.
But my creative ambitions still weren’t fulfilled.
I traveled through Asia, crossed the North Atlantic and worked as an Illustrator.
During 2012, high in the Bolivian Andes, I met and worked with famous Artist and Shaman Gaston Ugalde and realized, that the medium of film could unite everything i love: Art, nature, people, adventure, and storytelling.
This realisation set me on a path, to a new goal: To make the best adventure film in the world.
Consequently THORDOX PRODUCTIONS was born.
