Thai Stunt Industry Revealed In Documentary THE STUNT

Thailand is one of the major players in the international action scene, best known for exporting their trademark full-contact brutality. But what goes on behind the scenes with the unsung heroes who pour out their blood, sweat and tears to entertain us?  The Dept. of Tourism in Thailand and Dream Maker Entertainment have produced The Stunt, a documentary that gives the inside scoop on the Thai stunt industry.
 
"The STUNT" takes the audience behind the scenes and reveals the life and career of the stuntmen that risk their lives to bring thrills and excitement to the Thai Film Industry. Through conversations and interviews, we take a look at some of the most prominent Directors, Actors and of course, Stuntmen and see what they have to say about what they do, how they do it and get a better insight into the world of Action Filmmaking in Thai cinema.

Interviewee: Panna Rittikrai, Seng Kawee, Pangrit Saengcha, Ant Vatcharachai, Kecha Jaika, Nhong N.T., Thep Baanrig, Nung Pradit, TIK Bigbrother, Nerun Sreesun, Prachya Pinkaew, Wych Kaosayananda, Gary Daniels.

As an action enthusiast, I hope these fine stuntmen will get the proper treatment and recognition that they deserve.  You'll find the trailer (English subtitles included) embedded below.
