    Hi Guys,

    I have been pasted your name via a contact of mine on facebook.

    I am looking to film a 2 minute video on private yacht which will be at sea close to Phuket at the end of November.

    We are a 4 person team and will have our own film equipment with us.

    Do you have any idea on what permits if any we will require? We are not looking to film on land in Thailand at all just land in Phuket and board the yacht. We just need to make sure we are all legitimate traveling through the airport with equipment etc. as i have read Thailand requires film permits and watches etc.

    The shoot is only two days and is for the yacht owner. Not for TV board cast etc.

    If you can hep me out with any info I’d be very grateful!
