Thailand has played host to several feature films, TV dramas, docudramas, reality shows, and mini-series. Several big and small budget movies have been shot in the country. Some were filmed in the bustling city center and others on the beaches, islands, farms and other scenic natural landscape.
In other places, you might not need eyes and ears on the ground, but in Thailand, it is mandated by law to hire a local coordinator like Fixer in Thailand to assist with securing permits from authorities. Moreover, having us filling this role also means you can enlist us for other services as well to make the process easier for you.
