Thailand Filming Locations
Thailand is typically broken up by regions, including central, northern, southern, eastern and western Siam. Each region has its own distinct and unique offerings for foreign film production.
Bangkok is part of the central region, and it is a sprawling, dense metropolis with winding streets and alleys, canals, and an epic skyline. Bisected by the mighty Chao Praya river, many movies shoot along its banks as passenger and cargo boats drift by in the background.
To the south, there are some of Thailand’s most splendid beaches and islands including Phuket on the Andaman Sea and Koh Samui on the Thai Gulf. Also in the south are magnificent limestone cliffs plunging into pristine turquoise seas.
The north of Thailand is where the best mountain scenery is on offer. Some of these mountain peaks reach so high, hikers have to bring cold-weather gear as they ascend above the humid tropical climate layer. Northern cities like Chang Mai and Mae Hong Son provide a rustic backdrop and a multitude of film making and production opportunities.
Cutting-Edge Film Equipment and Professional Crew in Thailand
In addition to the abundant locations, Thailand is home to some of the best film crew and equipment options in the Asia Pacific Region. Most of these industry pros have been trained up to US and European standards, and the results are extraordinary.
Every year like clockwork a procession of Hollywood productions set up in Thailand. Features such as Gold, Only God Forgives, and The Hangover have all utilized local crew and equipment houses to support base international operations. And recently, Netflix has joined the lineup, in addition to other streaming services calling on the locally abundant resources.
Tax Incentives and Budget Customization
The Thai film board has dutifully recognized its country’s limitless cinematic potential and recently instituted generous tax incentives. Visiting productions can rest assured that whatever their budget scope may be, they will get results.
Similarly here at Wind Up Films, we understand that every individual production has unique needs, and we are ready to cater to them. Whether your project calls for immersive special effects or full pre-to-post-production support, we have you covered!
Native In House Post Production Support
It said by some that a film is made in the cutting room, and Wind Up Films fully understands this industry wisdom. Movies and television are a director’s medium, and the bigger picture often doesn’t start to emerge before post-production editing begins.
With this in mind, Wind Up Films has outfitted itself with an offline cutting room and state of the art Davinci grading capabilities. And while the work unfolds, free coffee, drinks, snacks, and other client services make the process more comfortable and efficient.
For any kind of production support, advice, or guidance, we remain on call. So contact us at any time about film production services in Thailand and beyond. We are here to help you produce the best film and television in the business. Be sure to have a great day!
