Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal is a five-movie animated film based on a series of stories published in the local Thai publishing magazine Keris Siamang. The first film, Keris Thap Thai (Movie 1) is an example of how the traditional Thai animation was to be created. This film was so successful that it led to the establishment of an animation studio, as well as many other animation studios.
After reading the story in the magazine, director Pakorn Khawakapong and his team began to consider a story for a film. When they were finally convinced on a story, they were given a screenplay. They then collaborated with the artist Nakhon Takhon in order to create a very well-designed and detailed storyboard. When this was finished, the animators went into production.
In the storyboard, Nakhon Takhon drew the storyboard, while the two main artists - Upin and Ipin - sketched it out on paper. By drawing it out on paper, they could see for themselves if there were any mistakes in the storyboard, which helped them correct them right away. Because they took their time, the illustrations were greatly enhanced, and they were able to finish the storyboard in just a few weeks.
One of the most attractive features of the movie is its story, which is extremely subtle and full of mystery. It is said that the whole story is a part of the narrative of the book. The movie has this clever and charming writing style that keeps the audience engaged. To keep the viewers on the edge of their seats, all the voice actors were used, who also provided lines to help in strengthening the characters.
In order to sustain the quality of the animation, the crew had to work hard to continue its progress. The story of the movie involves an outstanding storyline that is so well-developed that you won't be able to stop watching it. Each scene is very detailed and visually appealing. The animation is flawless, using the same digital technology that is currently used by most leading motion picture production studios.
After this impressive movie, many sequels were made, including Upin and Ipin: Chaetayantee Series, while some of the characters of the first two serie are incorporated into the third one. The fourth movie is also quite similar to the previous ones. The fifth one however, is so exciting that people cannot wait to see the next installment. Even the technical problems found in the production process were properly addressed.
The very first movie is already highly regarded. This is because of its complex storyline, which makes it even more entertaining. The story itself tells of a woman named Jui, who lives in a small house by herself, except for her dog Pui. The characters of the story are surprisingly funny, especially the Old Lady whose house is full of fun toys.
The second movie of the series, Upin: Siamang Yesheongdong was an instant hit. Fans of the series had already known about the charming and humorous adventures of the most charming and amusing heroine of the whole series, Meen. But the second movie of the series will make the fans feel like they have never seen anything as good before.
