Director Biography - Cade Thomas

Cade Thomas is an up-and-coming filmmaker from Tulsa, Oklahoma. With a background in broadcasting, he has won several state awards for his documentary and radio work. Cade grew up creating YouTube videos and shooting short films. His most-viewed YouTube video is (Tulsa Underground), a short documentary about the history of the tunnel system beneath downtown Tulsa, which has received over 200,000 views.

In 2019, Cade Thomas wrote, directed, shot, edited, and produced his first feature film; titled RIBBON. The film is deceptively bubblegum, straddling the line between broad comedy and personal tragedy before plunging oppositely on both ends of the spectrum.

During the global pandemic, Cade virtually premiered Laura, a two-part true crime series that shed new light on a four-decade-old cold case. Containing four interviews of people who were deeply connected to the case, the series reveals secrets that had never been shared to the public before.

A Cherokee Nation citizen, Cade works for the marketing team of his tribe's business operations as a digital content creator. He is continuing to create unexpected films and challenging documentaries that defy traditional genre tropes and expectations.
