- My Thai Bride
Showreal Films | Poster & Postcard
Showreal Films is a production company specialising in observational documentaries. Their latest film, My Thai Bride was selected for screening at IDFA, the International Documentary Film Festival in Amsterdam in November 2011. Director David Tucker approached me with the need to capture a film poster and postcard to attract sales agents and an audience during IDFA and beyond.
My Thai Bride is a documentary that explores the power that money has, to save or destroy a person. Themes that arise include the complexities of human relationships and the consequences when people and relationships are reduced to a commodity. It's an exploration of the human condition; no one person is to blame, no one person is the saint, there are just shades of grey. It's an observational film that follows the consequences of two people with very legitimate but individual needs, exploiting one another in subtle and not so subtle ways.
