De Warrenne Pictures facilitated The Recorded Picture Company and Hollywood director Jon Amiel (Entrapment, The Core) when he shot scenes for CREATION, a bio-pic of Charles Darwin starring Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly, in various locations around Thailand.
Art director Pongnarin Jonghawklang, under the supervision of Stuart Rose, constructed an elaborate set for a nineteenth century London Zoo at Moonstar Studios in Bangkok, whilst Khao Kiew in Chonburi and Pa Sak River in Saraburi province stood in for the Borneo jungle.
Several orangutans were featured in scenes depicting the capture of apes by Dayak savages under the supervision of veteran animal consultant Rona Brown (Gorillas in the Mist, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan). CREATION premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in September 2009.
