May Apizsara, born and raised in Thailand, began her career in a post-production company, where she shared a part in producing commercial films for countries in South East Asia.


May portrays intriguing stories as she brings vitality and emotions into each of her films. Her wonderful sense of storytelling and stunning visuals with the masterful use of colors got her talent to be noticed early when participating in and won the first prize from MOFILM London.


This win, combined with the passion that May has for the medium of film, led her to make the decision of launching her career as a film director.


This decision led May to new and exciting places- several thousand miles away from Thailand to Los Angeles. On her ongoing journey into honing her directorial voice, May took film directing classes at UCLA Extension and finished the film internship from All in Film company to nurture her directing skills. Residing in Los Angeles and being surrounded by talented people has motivated May to push herself beyond her artistic boundaries, which has resulted in a remarkable degree of success for the blossoming director.


May is currently based in Bangkok, directs commercial films, music videos, and short films. Her cinematic style is admired by global brands such as Chevrolet FC, Lactacyd, Dove Vietnam, Sapporo USA, Dettol, Bumble and so on.
