Pawas Sawatchaiyamet

Pawas Sawatchaiyamet Born in Bangkok, Pawas Sawatchaiyamet started his career as an art director at Siam Studio, one of the earliest and biggest advertising companies in Thailand. Pawas attended the New York Institute of Technologies where he pursued his Masters Degree, concentrating on Film and Television production. He returned to Thailand and in 1999, he made his debut as a feature-length film art director with 6ixtynin9, where he collided with director Pen-ek Ratanaruang, whom he has continued to work with ever since. 2004 saw Pawas working as Production Designer on Les Fils du vent (Sons of the Wind), a foreign production shot in Thailand. Later in 2006, Pawas started his own company, Local Color Films. 7 Nights, a film by Cannes's Grand Prix Award Winner Naomi Kawase, was one of the early films he produced. Soon after, Pawas embarked on another project, producing Sawasdee Bangkok, a collection of nine short stories depicting Bangkok from different perspectives. His previous producing credit includes Wisit Sasanatieng’s Red Eagle, Pen-ek Ratanaruang’s Nymph and Headshot (aka. Fon Tok Kuen Fah).
