Thailand Independent Film Situation

It is quite interesting now that because of the low cost of DV camera, homebased editing program and facility etc, many more people form varietybackground are making their own features. It was unlike 8 years ago whenApichatpong and I began our career. At that time in order to make film wehave to use 16 or 35 mm negative films. So, early Thai independent featureslike "Mysterious Object at Noon. (directed by Apichatpong and produced byme) was shot with 16 mm negative film. My own directorial debut "I-SanSpecial" is shot in cheap stock of 35 mm. So, nowadays the situation isbetter for those up coming filmmakers to express themselves.
