Film and television personnel around the world know of Thailand’s fantastic locations, backdrops and world class production services’ industry. The Thailand Film Office, Department of Tourism, Ministry of Tourism and Sports, in its new ad campaign for 2011 is urging film makers to “Unleash Their Imagination in Thailand” replicating other international locations here in the Kingdom.

Many films, TV commercials and dramas, music videos and still shoots have doubled Thailand for other locations: New York, 1940’s Shanghai, modern day China, Mardi Gras in New Orleans, Medieval Europe, a mysterious underwater world, you name it and it has been filmed in Thailand.

Most recently a Tamil film crew filming in Thailand, director A R Murugadoss’ 7 am Arivu erected a set that resembled a Chinese landscape, and shot an important scene that was actually supposed to happen in China, according to Senthil Kumar, a production executive with Red Giant Movies.

“We are really pleased that international film and TV producers have come to realize the professionalism of our crews and expanse of our production facilities,” said Wanasiri Morakul, Director of the Thailand Film Office.“We want studio executives and producers that have not thought of shooting here to realize there are no boundaries for their imagination to come alive in Thailand," she said.

Thailand will unveil its “Unleash Your Imagination” ad campaign at the upcoming Cannes International Film Festival on 11-22 May 2011 in France and at the Association of Film Commissioners Produced by Conferences/Location Show (held this year in conjunction with the Producers Guild of America) which will be held at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California on 3-5 June 2011.
