Another fun This Strange Life and we are joined by two Bangkok-based film makers — James Newman & Matthew Rickard. They dish on the projects they are working on now, the differences between Western and Thai audiences and then we get into out favorite movies and shows. We also hit on some usual #TSL topics like expat life and traveling. We hear some interesting perspectives as James has been in Thailand since ’01, while Matthew just arrived last year. Keep an eye out for some of their upcoming projects like Foo-rang (you’ll hear about it in the episode!) James Newman Bio: Following a six month sabbatical in 2001, James Newman fell in love with Thailand and decided to up sticks and move to the Far East where he carved out an existence as a novelist, journalist, publisher, playwright, and filmmaker. The cards didn’t turn out too bad for Newman. He has published over a 100 stories around the world, sold a film option or two, and now writes screenplays, produces films, and generally promotes the creative arts in and around Thailand.
