Pen-ek blew up the music

Pen-ek Ratanaruang put on his Shoot the Music concert down in Hua Hin over the weekend.

Similar to Bangkok's 9 Film Fest, which also combined beer, film and music, Shoot the Music was sponsored by Heineken and had Pen-ek orchestrating a combination of short films and live music.

From what I can gather, the shorts were shown in between or maybe during musical performances.

There were dozen or so local acts leading up to the headliner, R&B musician Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds.

At one point, there was a small explosion on the stage.

"The lights went out and everything froze," writes Manta Klangboonkrong in her review of the show in The Nation.

There were a number of amusing promo spots and short films made for the event. These include the It's Personal shorts Boxer and Mafia, featuring Tarr Barbie as a slick gangster. Singer-actress Ploy Horwang also appears. They are combined in a playlist and are embedded below.
