By chance George traveled from France to Thailand 25 years ago, and doubted he could make a life there. Much to his surprise, he meet his wife, raised two kids, set up a French school, an insurance brokerage company for expats and finally one of the first film production services companies in South East Asia. Ever since it’s early start, Siam Movies, has been synonymous with reliability and high quality services. These facts have helped George successfully guide many foreign production companies through the region. Some of his most prestigious projects include “The Lady” by Luc Besson for EuropaCorp’s film “Largo Winch II,” for Pan Européenne as well as various films and documentaries for France Television.
After law school, Naoufel set out to travel and spent seven years exploring old caravan routes around the globe for famous travel agency. He accomplished a few of his crazy childhood dreams and then happily found himself like a fish in the water, organizing challenges all around the world for directors including Jean Jacques Annaud, Raoul Peck and few others. He feels blissfully attached and respectful towards East Asia where nothing seems impossible. Naoufel’s motto is and will always be, “my client’s challenges are mine and make me feel always awake.”
As far as TanTan can remember, she always wanted to make movies. After receiving a Bachelors of Communication in Art & Television, she worked for several executive production companies in Bangkok. TanTan was eager to learn as much as possible about the industry, so she worked in different areas of production, advertising, TV and feature film and quickly became one of Thailand’s most acclaimed production manager and line producer. In 2006, after 50+ projects, TanTan and George Langlois launched their own production services company. Her mission within Siam Movies is to continuously develop a solid network of highly skilled local crews and offer a the best expertise to international clients.
