Director Statement

Amid the chaotic and confusing world, we are born in the time when things come easy for us. There are a lot of advanced technologies. All of them seem to help us follow our dreams or what we want, but in fact, all of us get lost along the way. And that’s true.

This film isn’t one of the films that portray the success of those who follow their dreams. It tells the stories of those who are pursuing their dreams. How about you? Have you started to chase your dreams?

“I want to be” is the film that portrays real life stories of 5 teenagers. They share their experiences happened in Thailand, making them the representatives of the new generation. They have the will and creative perspectives to help change the young people and the society to be better.

I’m one of those who live their dreams. We put in much effort, further our ambitions, and deal with our failures. I’ve been through a lot and it’s made who I am today. I’ve got to do what I love for work. This is the project that reflects who I am the most. It’s my personal work that I’ve spent a lot of time to make it successful.

We all have big dreams. However, the harsh reality is always with us. This film is made to encourage those who are chasing their dream. The possibility of what you think impossible may increase in the future even just 1%.

I want this film to be shown to the new generation because I believe that having a good background can make them grow up to be a good person in the society, making our world to be a better place.
