>>> Fast Film >>>

fast-film-2

This past weekend we shot our new film, Pleng Chat Thai.  This short is commissioned by the Ministry of Culture in honor of the 83rd birthday of His Majesty the King.  The film, along with two others by recent Silpathorn winners Nonzee Nimibutr and Pimpaka Towira will premiere in a special presentation at SF Cinema Central World from November 29-December 3. 

For anyone who is doing the math in their heads, this means that the film was shot November 7-9 and will premiere in the cinema in twenty days.  We don’t know about you, but for us, that’s a pretty fast turnaround.  It feels good to do something quickly though.  Films have a tendency to take too long.  They should be fast, like singing a song, or painting a painting.

If anyone is interested in making a fast film, here is some advice:

1. Few Characters: save time on casting and rehearsals.  Not many people know this, but the thing that takes the most time on set is when an actor can’t do the scene.  For this film, we worked with three actors, all of whom we’ve worked with in the past.

2. Few Locations: save time on location scouting and traveling during shooting.  In the middle of Bangkok, having to move locations from one place to another within one shooting day, is a killer.  Shoot in one place, it gets rid of the problem.

3. No Music: nobody really thinks about this when they’re writing a script.  But having to hire a composer not only costs money but takes time because they generally can’t start until the editing is complete.  No music, no composer.

Please check back to our website in the next few weeks for updates.  Everyone’s working fast.  Our company, the other companies, the Ministry of Culture, SF Cinema, everyone’s fast fast fast > > > go go go to get everything ready for November 29th.  So we have to go back to work now, time’s a wasting, see you later, gotta run.
