Born in Bangkok, Tom Waller is an award-winning filmmaker of Thai-Chinese-Polish-Irish descent. Educated in the UK, he moved back to Thailand in 2003 to work as a PA for Hollywood director Oliver Stone on Alexander (2004). That job inspired him to set up on his own to handle international shoots in the kingdom, and since then, he has produced numerous film and TV productions through De Warrenne Pictures Co. Ltd. which he founded in 2004, now one of the country’s leading production service companies. Notable credits include indie films The Elephant King (2006), Soi Cowboy (2008) and Patong Girl (2014), as well as studio movies Ninja: Shadow of a Tear (2013) and Mechanic: Resurrection (2016). Most recently he wrote and directed The Cave (2019), which premiered at Busan Film Festival, the first narrative feature about the Thai Cave Rescue that captivated the world in the summer of 2018. In 2021, he was appointed Vice President of FILM BANGKOK, the feature film and OTT series division of Tero Entertainment PCL, one of Thailand’s largest entertainment companies.
