Thailand is fast becoming the favourite destination for international film and television series productions. Thailand offers some incredible financial incentives to produce advertisements, feature films and streaming television series. Top film production companies like Living Films and others can provide international studios with top-quality local film & television production support.

Health, Safety & Security to the Standards You Expect

One primary risk of location filming in a distant country is the health, safety, and security of visiting film crews and actors. Studios need assurance that Safety Advisors operate to recognised standards. While Thailand has safety regulations, they’re not as robust as those in the USA, UK, and other Western countries.
