T&B Media Global and SMG Pictures celebrate joint-venture movie that will help Thai-Chinese entertainment reach global markets



Dr. Jwanwat “Tan” Ahriyavraromp, CEO and Founder of IP management and entertainment investment company, T&B Media Global (Thailand) Co Ltd, together with Mrs. Thippaporn (Chearavanont)Ahriyavraromp and Mr. Dhanin Chearavanont, Senior Chairman of the Charoen Pokphand Group (CP) joined the wrap-up party for the major film production “Start It Up” on the night of 22 June, 2019 at Shanghai International Convention Center, China. Representatives from SMG Pictures & WingsMedia, T&B Media Global and the film’s Thai and Chinese cast and guests were also in attendance.

Start It Up is the first of several upcoming Thai-Chinese joint venture co-production films between T&B Media Global and SMG Pictures & WingsMedia. The film is currently in production at Shellhut Entertainment Co., Ltd. and Photo Studio Co., Ltd., advancing new potential business opportunities for future Thai-Chinese entertainment industry cooperation.

T & B Media Global enters the global market

Dr. Jwanwat Ahriyavraromp, known as ‘Dr. Tan’, has been active for over a decade in the Thai animation industry. He is especially well known for the animated TV series Shelldon, which has aired in over 200 countries and translated into more than 35 languages. Learning from the difficulties faced as a producer, Dr. Tan established T&B Media Global as a company that can help good storytellers get their stories told to the global market.

+++ Joining major Chinese media conglomerate to co-produce a romantic-comedy film

T&B Media Global was founded in 2016 with the purpose of financing and managing the finest, most innovative content that brings unique and joyful entertainment to audiences worldwide, while being able to support global social development programs that benefit the environment, children and humanity at large. Partnering with SMG Pictures & WingsMedia, T&B aims to develop exciting new content for the Chinese, Thai and global markets.

SMG Pictures & WingsMedia are a member of Oriental Pearl Group and a wholly owned subsidiary of China's 2nd largest media conglomerate, Shanghai Media Group (SMG). Since 1997, SMG has become the largest entertainment company in Shanghai and one of the top 3 in China with over 20 years of expertise producing, investing, and managing intellectual properties, SMG owns and distributes content across a variety of platforms and received overwhelming responses from their Chinese audiences.

Back in June 2018, T&B announced the co-production MOU with SMG Pictures & WingsMedia consisting of three feature films including Start it Up, Arthur and the 7 Chicks and Silk Road and a format adventure TV series titled The Snapventures which is under development.

+++ Brings Hollywood movies to world market

In addition, T&B Media Global’s ever-growing slate currently encompasses over twenty different projects with plans to release seven in the next year:

• Start It Up, directed by Pakapol Lertwachirapaiboon (Bert) and starring Chanon Santinatornkul (Nonkul), Peter Sheng (Sheng Yilun), Dong FangChi of AKB48 Team SH, Du Siyi, Suvapich Thaothampitak (Baitoey), and Gornpop Janjaroen (Joke So Cool)
• Project X-Traction, directed by Scott Waugh (Need for Speed and Act of Valor), starring Jackie Chan, and John Cena (Bumblebee)
• Vanguard, directed by Stanley Tong (Police Story 3-4, Rumble in the Bronx), starring Yang Yang (Martial Universe), and Miya Muqi (Kung Fu Yoga) together with Jackie Chan
• Waiting For Anya, based on the novel by Michael Morpurgo (War Horse), starring Noah Schnapp (Stranger Things) along with Jean Reno (Léon: The Professional, Ronin, Godzilla) and Oscar-winning actor Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family)
• Four Kids and It, based on the novel by Jacqueline Wilson, starring Michael Caine, Russell Brand, Paula Patton, and Mathew Goode
• Legend of the Two Heroes, directed by Herman Yau (Ip Man: The Final Fight), is an animated film about two rival Monkey Gods having to overcome their differences to fight a greater evil
• and Tasty Tales of the Food Truckers, a TV cartoon series that follows the lives of three animal friends who search the world for ingredients to cook amazing dishes.

"I chose a Chinese partnership because Thailand and China have had an enduring relationship as sister countries,” said Dr.Tan. “China has grown close to Thailand and has great affection for the country, as evidenced by the number of Chinese visitors. In 2018, more than 10 million Chinese visited Thailand, an increase of 7.44% from the previous year! The entertainment industry in both Thailand and China have great potential for continuous growth in movies, television, and various media. The markets stand out as incredible investment opportunities for mass-market products and services through its various online media viewings and other channels”

+++ Start It Up, movie for the new generation

Start It Up is a romantic comedy about two friends from different worlds who embark on an adventure of entrepreneurial proportions. After an unexpected crisis forces them to ‘START!’, their paths lead them to enter an international cooking competition that is much more than just creating a dish. The film stars Thai and Chinese actors, with Chanon Santinatornkul (Nonkul), Peter Sheng (Sheng Yilun), Dong FangChi of AKB48 Team SH, Du Siyi, Suvapich Thaothampitak (Baitoey), and Gornpop Janjaroen (Joke So Cool). The movie is directed by Pakapol Lertwachirapaiboon (Bert) and produced by Thai producer Pornviroon Kaewthong (Tong) and Chinese producer Tao Shu. With a screenplay written by Atthapol Parndee (Prok) and co-developed by the Chinese writer Fang Hongren, the movie was filmed in both Thailand and China and hopes to inspire new generations to realize their dreams.
