Boon Rawd Brewery introduces film project to honour His Majesty “HM the King's compositions, music in the heart of the people” Promoting His Majesty's musical talent through four movies directed by Front row Thai directors, with inspirations from royal compositions

One of His Majesty the King’s numerous fields of excellence is music. He has always been an avid music lover, and has practiced classical music composition at a young age. His genius music skills allow him to excel in many musical instruments, and His Majesty has showcased his musical skills by performing with international artists in many occasions.
The University of Music and Performing Arts of the City of Vienna in Austria honoured His Majesty the King with the Institute's 23rd Honorary Membership in 1964. His Majesty has composed 48 songs, all of which have interesting messages in them. Some were composed to give moral support to the Thai people, some were meant to be entertaining, and some to evoke the feeling of nationalism.
To celebrate and promote His Majesty’s excellence in music for the general public, Boon Rawd Brewery Company Limited and Singha Corporation Company Limited has organized a press conference to announce the launch of a film project to honour His Majesty “HM the King's compositions, music in the heart of the people”. The press conference takes place on Wednesday 22nd April 2015 at Paragon Cineplex, Paragon Department Store.
Nathawan Teepsuwan, corporate communications director of Boon Rawd Brewery, is joining the press conference to talk about the background of the project, joined by four famous film directors namely Nonzee Nimibutr, Wallop Prasopphol, Parkpoom Wongpoom, and Yongyut Thongkongthun. The four of them will talk about their impression on this project, and the guests will have a chance to listen to His Majesty’s songs Sai Fon, sung by a legendary Thai singer Anchalee Jongkadeekij, and Yim Su sung by Getsunova.

Nathawan Teepsuwan, corporate communications director of Boon Rawd Brewery, said that the project was initiated to celebrate His Majesty’s excellence in music and composition, with an aim to promote His Majesty’s songs to the general public, so that they can appreciate the valuable messages in His Majesty’s royal compositions. The films in this project also serve to inspire people to do good for the society, especially the new generation.

This past year Boon Rawd Brewery Co. Ltd. has had the opportunity to honour HM the King through HM’s own renowned musical composition. In addition to a youth camp and documentary, we produced four short films, totaling 130 minutes, by some of Thailand’s leading directors under this project “HM the King's compositions, music in the heart of the people”. The themes of films are each based on a story inspired by one of HM’s compositions. All are intended to be accessible to everyone, but most especially to young people.”
Boon Rawd Brewery and Singha Corporation have organized a project to celebrate His Majesty’s excellence in music by making a short documentary "Kitaracha" - a series of 10 short television clips telling the impressions of artists, singers, and those who have worked with His Majesty in the music field, sharing their impressions of His Majesty's songs. Another component of "Kitaracha" was the Pro Musica Junior Camp, the aim of which was to train talented youths lacking the opportunity in a music camp in Bangkok. They were educated by musical experts from Faculty of Music, Silpakorn University, and got to perform at Pro Musica Junior Concertat the Thewarat Sapharom Hall, Phaya Thai Palace, which was a great success.
The four films in this project include The Singers, directed by Nonzee Nimibutr, inspired by the song Chata Cheewit, sung by Neeranuch Pattamasut and Thanida Thamwimon (Da Endorphin); Om Yim, directed by Wallop Prasopphol, inspired by the song Yim Su, sung by Prakarn Raiva from Getsunova; It Rains at Huay Kha Khaeng, directed by Parkpoom Wongpoom, inspired by the song Sai Fon, sung by Anchalee Jongkadeekij; and Dao, directed by Yongyut Thongkongthun, inspired by the song Kwarm Fun Un Soong Sood, sung by Saharat Sangkapricha and Koranis Laosubinprasert.
