Thailand Film Production Companies, Thai Film Production Businesses


I knew very little about film production companies in Thailand, in fact movie making of any kind, until one day I was stopped on the street in Pattaya. Two young people jumped out of a car. They explained that they had just driven down from Bangkok and were looking for people to act in a movie. In particular they were looking for an old fat farang (westerner) who could speak a little Thai. I explained that there were plenty of old fat farang in Pattaya. In fact half the population of visitors must be old and fat.

I walked off and then they ran after me. "Hey you speak Thai good" "and you are old and fat" They set up a video camera and asked me to smile. "I can't smile I said as I have no teeth" "Perfect" he said with a chuckle. "now I want you to act like you have a hangover and stagger a bit" This is too easy I thought. I had had a few drinks the night before so I just acted naturally.

Then came the difficult part. "now I want you to act like you just saw a beautiful woman" so I put on my best leary face and blew a kiss and shouted "hey up honey how about you and me doing some horizontal gymnastics"  Perfect! Perfect! he extolled. Little did he know there was a cute Thai girl walking along the street behind the cameraman. "you are a natural actor" yeah yeah natural.


A few months later I was costumed, my make up was perfect. The director explained that I was the new boss of the tin mine. Now Norman the boss drank too much and could I act a little drunk. God life is hard being a movie star.

Maha lai Muang Rae - The Tin Mine won first prize for Thai movie of the year. I had my few minutes of on screen stardom. Back to the real life. Beer and cute sexy Thai girls. The phone never stops ringing. Not with offers of work on the next blockbuster movie but with people wanting money - and the occasional cute Thai girl.

The Tin Mine In 1949 a young student, Archin Panjabhan, finds his life upturned when he is expelled from Thailand’s top university. He is sent away from the city by his father to the wilderness of southern Thailand, arriving in a mining camp, where he embarks on a four-year odyssey of self-discovery. Adapted from Panjabhan’s acclaimed autobiography, this beautiful film offers a lush, lyrical insight into a way of life from a bygone era. Writer/Director: Jira Maligool
