In our first twenty-three years, we have shot more than forty international feature films. Meanwhile, our television commercial arm has been expanding and flourishing. You will see from our site that we are also passionate about documentary films.

While building our reputation as an honest, family style production house, we have gained huge experience in the nuts-and-bolts of filmmaking in Thailand and South East Asia.
