Mandolin Media is a Bangkok, Thailand based video, photo and film agency.
Our team are experts at what they do, and unlike other agencies, you'll be able to talk directly to us, the creative team.
We are specialised in production, and handle all aspects of the process. We focus on human interest story telling, and are experts at telling the story of a project, company or brand. Our work centres on NGOs and charities, documentaries, music videos and commercials.
With a flexible production style and diverse experience, Mandolin Media can meet the communicative needs of a broad range of clients to a high production standard.
Our work has been featured, and won awards at, not to brag ;) international film festivals, cinemas, on national Television, major events and across social media.
