Each year, Thailand welcomes hundreds of foreign film productions, including movies, documentaries, TV programmes, music videos and commercials.

 

According to the tourism department’s director-general, Anant Wongbenjarat, in 2019, 740 international film crews generated almost 5 billion baht for the local economy. After the pandemic struck, however, those figures dropped dramatically. Last year just 176 foreign film productions came to Thailand, bringing in 1.73 billion baht.

"After the pandemic struck, however, those figures dropped dramatically. Last year just 176 foreign film productions came to Thailand,"

 

Now that  is odd because all those posters on here who claimed to work in the music industry in another thread  saying that it is an expanding business and more and more are coming here, seems wide of the mark. That statement possibly puts the credibility of those posters into question, or else their knowledge is such they are not aware of the big picture.

I'm sure that even if 90%  of  arriving companies were shot at the airport they would  still say  that the rest of the world  flocks  to  Thailand, even to be shot  on arrival.
