The Adventure Film Company in Borneo

In the mid-90s, Pierce Vaughn was working in television and independently producing films and music. Bjorn Vaughn was working as a photographer and writer. In 2009, they travelled to Central Kalimantan, Borneo, Indonesia, where, together with entrepreneur Immanuel Bryson-Haynes and businessman Luciano Da Silva, they established the island’s first international film production company. Half a decade later, Borneo Productions International (BPI) consists of local and international filmmakers, having worked on films across the archipelago with clients from around the world.

Our Office

After 5 beautiful years at the Rungan Sari Meeting Center & Resort, we have finally moved the BPI offices to a new, spacious and more integrated environment in downtown Palangka Raya. Only 15 minutes from the airport, nestled in an inspirational, green environment, this is where the action continues. We look forward to welcoming you here!

“I found their professionalism, creativity and technical knowledge impressive. If I were lucky enough to return to make another film in Borneo, Borneo Productions International would be my first port of call, furthermore BPI have been recommended to other BBC productions working in Borneo Kalimantan and South East Asia.

Annie Backhouse BBC Director, The Natural World, The Great Ape Escape.

Bjorn camera work is magnificent. The shoots are so well composed. Working with him and his team at BPI was a breath of fresh air coming from London. They were so engaged with our project and happy to help.
