This is the first opportunity where I've had an actual DVD from ThaiTwink to work from! If ANYONE has any other ThaiTwink DVD... PLEASE post it here! I PROMISE I will color-correct and optimize it. There are 12 other ThaiTwink DVDs, listed below.
As a tribute, of sorts, to Videographer Tim Woodh, I spent 6 weeks and 845 edits, and three tries, to remaster this, and write these notes about ThaiTwink Productions. I have such tremendous respect for this Videographer. Years ago, prior to my ever visiting Thailand, Tim Woodh's "Thai Twink" videos really showed me a true and genuine insight into Thai "boyz", and the unique Thai take on sexuality and the gay lifestyle.
Tim Woodh's videos were unique in a number of ways. He would come up with a unique "thesis" or "story line", then create a movie with genuine acting in numerous scenes, to expand the storyline, often include Thai music, punctuated by steamy hot sex scenes. The beauty in this, is that he would choose natural locations for his movies, often in the countryside, on the beach, in a frat-boy's rented house, and outside, in the yard.
Tim Woodh's Thai boyz were clearly relaxed in the production environment he had created, and this can only be attributed to the cast being very familiar and relaxed with each other, around Tim Woodh and the crew, by that time. Clearly Tim Woodh had genuinely understood and adapted to the relaxed and carefree Thai lifestyle himself, and related, on a peer to peer level, with the amateur Thai performers.
A couple scenes from Tim Woodh's videos are forever etched into my memory; In "HouseMates", "Beer" is outdoors in the yard, with a hose, washing his clothes in a plastic bucket(!) [which, yes, is how they do their laundry, in rural Thailand!]. Anyway, he's working away at it, and getting wet, in the process, wearing only his briefs, and a little bit of his cock starts showing, out the leg of the shorts. His friend happens to notice this, and starts teasing him about this, one thing leads to another, and a big water fight ensues, drenching them both. TOTALLY Charming, real, and natural.
In another, (one of the "scouting" theme videos, I think), the boyz were having an evening beach party, with a blazing campfire providing the only light. The boyz were goofing on each other, and proceeded to get into a traditional Thai kid's song and dance, where they formed a line, each holding on to the boy in front of them, performing a pseudo bump-and-grind "sodomy train" to the beat of the Thai song/rhyme, "Banana, apple, pineapple,..." the inside joke being that the Thai word for "banana" is ALMOST the same as the word for "cock"; just a slightly different tonal sound...HA! Great take on Thai humor, and "boyz being boyz". Thai guys are genuinely carefree, (lazy), and childlike, well into their adulthood... and the concept of "guilt" regarding being gay, is virtually non-existent.
Tim Woodh, for a five year period, was a prolific Videographer (Director and Editor) of gay Thai sex videos.
In that time, he produced THIRTEEN relatively sophisticated high-quality movies, each with a totally new, creative theme. The earlier movies featured more of an innocent theme, which seemed to graduate to more modern sophisticated themes, toward the end. Here's a complete list of his ThaiTwink movies: (If you have the DVD, PLEASE share it here!)
"Spring Break" 2002
"Sweet Adventure" 2003
"Scouting Secrets" 2003
"Swim Club" 2004 (my personal favorite)
"Happy Trail" 2004
"Hidden Pleasures" 2005
"Happy Hour" 2006
"Puppy Love" 2006
"Cyber Love" 2007
-----"ThaiTwink" Fades to Black...------
Interestingly, TLA Video shows ALL of the 13 titles "On Order", with the exception of "Cyber Love". It would seem that "Thai Twink Productions" is no longer open for business. In doing research for this "tribute" of sorts, other than a single entry, on the JRL website (at hxxp://www.jrlchartsonline.net/news-thai-twink-launch-new-website-for-asian-audience.php), stating "Rumor has it that Tim Woodh is in production for his next release in America, so make sure to stay tuned to JRL for the latest info on Thai Twink Productions." That same website article leads off with the "news": "THAI TWINK LAUNCHES THEIR 2008 WEBSITE FOR ASIAN GENR", then touting that it would bring you "the next generation of ThaiTwink.com.", and goes on to feature the picture of cutie "Dew", (who stars in the three-way, in "Happy Hour"!) being introduced as the "Store Manager / Sales Manager" (including a now-dead link to a video clip of Dew, with stats: "22 yrs, 5'6",112 lbs, Versatile!" [INDEED!])
Sadly, now, even the ThaiTwink.com website just forwards to a generic theater (VOD) website, ironically promoting the VOD of "Happy Hour"! If anyone has any updated information, please feel free to PM me, and I'll update this torrent info, or add a comment.
In closing... THANK YOU, Tim Woodh, for creating the 13 gay Thai Twink MASTERPIECES, from your creative genius. I picture you, possibly retired, living in Thailand, cuddling with your gorgeous Thai boyfriend, and having a bountiful circle of wonderful gay Thai friends. God bless you, Tim Woodh, wherever you are, and KUDOS!!
Trying to match two SEVERELY mismatched cameras (one with the quality of a surveillance camera and the other, a HIGH-END professional camera) was a real challenge, technically, and of my patience. Since the gamma was WAY off on the bad camera, I had to research and locate a new filter that let me custom-design a revised gamma curve, drastically improving the original video. Even so, the bad camera was noisy and grainy; not much I could do about that, without softening and degrading the picture quality. NOTE that MOST of the shots in this video are from the "Professional-Quality" camera.
Compounding the difficulties of trying to color-correct this DVD was the odd choice by the (non-credited) lighting director, who chose to backlight (or in some cases barely light) the "talk-show-interview" sets, leaving the faces of the talent very poorly lit. I had to gamma-correct even the good camera, to try and bring some light and color into the talent's faces.
I also cleaned up a couple of technical goofs, where the second camera entered the scene... twice, magically making the camera "invisible" (sometimes you've gotta love technology, and the guys who write these filters!) and cutting two seconds of video data that was severely distorted on the DVD. I LATER discoved that this data error created an audio sync issue, after the data flaw, and I had to manually piece together segments of audio into an MP3 track, to correct the problem... ARRrrrggggg!!
What can I say? Like Thailand, and LIFE itself, this video is deeply flawed, yet deeply beautiful and perfect; and another Thai Twink movie from the genius of Tim Woodh.
--------60fps Technical Notes:------------
The original DVD video was created INTERLACED enabling me to create TWO versions of this video, for your enjoyment: a 30fps (standard) deinterlaced version, and a 60fps deinterlaced version at double frame rate, for smoother movement.
This is the DOUBLE frame rate, 60fps version. It was deinterlaced via an "area based" deinterlacer (deinterlacing the frames only in the picture area where it's needed), and delivering video in twice the frame rate, which results in smoother movement. No temporal information is lost with this deinterlacing process. In non-interlaced areas, two fields are combined to give a full resolution frame. In interlaced areas, the current field is interpolated up to full frame size. Playable on Windows Media Player, VLC Player, and others.
The file size is a little larger than normal, since I wanted to limit the compression somewhat for this special occasion. This video has a qf of .183 (but at double frame rate) and a video data bitrate of 3792 kbps, for superior quality.
The 30fps version, should you desire a smaller file size, playable on a standard DVD player and TV, is available here: http://tracker.gaytorrent.ru/details.php?id=99930

---------Synopsis of Happy Hour-----------
(From the press notes, courtesy of Thai Twink Productions:)
"Seth, a 20 year old cutie and Big, a 26 year old handsomely hung guy with a cock and balls to die for, are in an open-air bar. They relate to Manny Man their first time experiences. Challenge accepted they move to their room where we get to observe their Happy Hour. Slow-paced tender lovemaking commences with Big rimming Seth to his delight and then Seth focusing on Big's magnificent cock until he spurts forth his load on his face. The action continues as Big gently penetrates Seth's tight hole. Together they are entwined in a private love dance. At last, lying on his back, penetrated deeply, Seth cannot hold it any longer and shoots his juice skyward. Big follows up with another beautiful creamy cum shot on his partner's face.
Beer, 20 years old, returns to tell about his sexual adventures. His stories are so outrageous he couldn't have made them up. (Especially, the naughty things he and his friends did to a watermelon.) He is joined by Ae, who is 23, and a much more conservative lad with a big dick. To start their Happy Hour, Beer chooses to wear his glasses. Ae can't resist an opportunity to cum on those spectacles while Beer squirts his own. Not to be stopped Ae gives Beer a good ass pounding from multiple positions. Determined to wash Beer's face in cum again he positions himself perfectly and then completely overshoots the target, much to Beer's amusement, to which he follows with streams of his own joy juice.
Non, a sweet 25 year old, tells of his first sexual adventure on a camping trip, followed by Mark's great misadventure in his father's car that will make you laugh. Manny Man challenges Non to take Mark's giant dick to which he responds "no problem" with a smile. Off they go for some hard action. It starts with some delightful sucking by Mark on Non's hardened pole. Minutes later it ends with Non shooting a full load on Mark's shoulder as he nibbles his dangling balls. Now its Mark's turn to rim Non in preparation for what's to come. Non climbs on top of Mark and easily takes his rod. Deep penetration commences, the way Non likes. At last Mark finishes by depositing his jets of cum on Non's hair and face.
Dew and Tor, both 21 year olds, meet up with Goh, a 26 year old muscular bartender. During their interview we learn about each player's first adventure before moving quickly into hot threesome action with Dew and Tor focusing all their energy on Goh's uncut manhood. Then it's time for some great cocksucking blowjobs all around, ending with all three lying on the bed stroking their meat to emission. With that out of the way it's time for some good old nasty sex. Dew penetrates Tor, who in turn fucks Dew. Goh fucks Dew while Tor is riding him, then switches to Tor. It's a mass of arms, legs, mouths, cocks and holes banging together, ending in big squirts."
