We Ought to Be In Pictures

Recent Film Projects Underline Bali's Growing Popularity as a Film Location.

(9/10/2006) The Bali Film Center (BFC) recently wrapped up two commercial, international film productions on locations in Bali and Java.

Surf's Up

Portugal's Lusa Film's Producer, Jose Neto, shot four days of beach and surfing scenes on location on Bali's Balangan, Padang Padang and Jimbaran beaches for NetCabo Internet and Still Productions.

Bali Film Center cast three female surfers from Bali as body doubles for three Portuguese actresses featured in the production.

"We are incredibly pleased to have local talent, professional crew and equipment at our disposal to meet international standards for such productions," said BFC's Director Deborah Gabinetti. All equipment for the production came from Jakarta and Singapore and international professional surfers were sourced from Bali.

Supporting a dozen local production companies were crewmembers from 11 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, France, Malaysia, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay, and the USA. The production brought approximately US$75,000 in expenditure to Bali.

Shooting Commercials in Indonesia

Meanwhile, Korea's Alphaville 44 Productions returned to Indonesia to film its second TV commercial for Oriental Premium property. An all-Indonesian technical crew—from Yogyakarta, Jakarta and Bali with equipment from Jakarta, supported a one-day shoot on location in Yogyakarta.

Park Sung Min, with Executive Producer Kang Dong Ku and Producer Jae Kim, directed the 35-mm film. This project netted an estimated $50,000 spend in Indonesia.
