Strengths of Thailand


Thailand has a large number of experienced local crews for hire. They are highly skilled and are familiar with working on international productions. They bring with them a wealth of both technical and local knowledge and their expertise will certainly be an asset to any filmmaker shooting in Thailand.

In addition, local suppliers are on hand to provide equipment of all kinds for hire. Their inventories feature the latest ‘state-of-the-art’ tools essential to modern film production, all available at competitive rates.


Thailand is renowned for expert film production services. The country is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and highly trained staff to support film production of any kind. It is considered one the best and most cost-effective in the region. The film production service business is rapidly growing in Thailand and this should significantly facilitate more foreign film productions. These organizations all work to international standards and are fully equipped to provide a professional, efficient and, of course, friendly service.


Thailand is welcoming filmmakers from around the world to explore this amazing kingdom, whether a production calls for Thailand‘s abundant natural splendour, its historic towns, or perhaps the glamour of its towering skyscrapers. The availability of elephants, exotic jungle and beach settings have made Thailand an attractive location for many Hollywood and Bollywood films and other international productions. Thailand is a place that can fulfil the imagination of every filmmaker.


It is a point of pride that Thailand is the hub of post-production in Southeast Asia and offers high-quality services with value for the money. The country continuously upgrades its digital platforms and tools with up-to-date technology and dedication to achieving the perfect final cut. Thailand has animators who are behind the successes of Zootopia and Frozen, while the animation and computer graphics industry has been constantly growing.


One of the many reasons why Thailand has become a major destination for filming is because of the convenient facilities that are spread across the country, which cater to even the most complex of productions. What is duly noted, however, is the country’s uncompromising dedication to service, a promise to surprise and delight clients, even when faced with unexpected challenges.

Moreover, Thai staff is service-minded by nature. Their kindness and generosity turn our support into a one-stop service, one in which the staff are ready to assist you beyond the duties of their job. This amiability, however, never interferes with their total professionalism.
