  3. “Erling’s First Scuba Dive” is a Bouvet Media documentary on the first dive of then 14 year old Erling Rolandsen, in Komodo National Park, Indonesia.

    Erling is my oldest son, and he had his first scuba dive during our vacation to Labuan Bajo (Flores), known as one of the better dive sites in the world. His Dive Instructor was Jules Vanmaele of “Manta Rhei Dive Experience” (mantarhei.com/), a dive centre operated by a Belgian family, and highly recommended. Our sincere thanks to Jules, who with friendliness and calm competence made this a great experience!

    The dives were done in the Komodo National Park (off the west coast of Flores), one of the “new 7 nature wonders of the world”, with Komodo, Rinca, Padar and 26 other small islands. Known as the home to the Komodo Dragon, the park also includes a diverse marine environment with more than 1000 species of fish, including the majestic Manta Rey (which we’ll see in the film), sea turtles, and about 260 species of reef-building coral. Perfect place for a first dive, isn’t it?

    For the record: This isn’t a professional production, I’m not an experienced diver, and my sole equipment a small, simple, borrowed camera. It was real fun doing, though!

    “Erling’s First Scuba Dive” was filmed 11 July 2014, and is directed, filmed and edited by Basil Rolandsen. Music from Jukedeck (create your own at jukedeck.com). A Bouvet Media Production.

  5. “Iralalaru HPP” is a Bouvet Media documentary on a planned hydroelectric power plant in Lautem, East Timor (Timor-Leste). It shows principles for hydropower generation. Tetum with English subtext.

    This project planned a hydropower plant that may produce cheap and reliable electricity for Timor-Leste for 100 years. It has a capacity to produce a maximum of 28 MW (million watts), or a total of 189 GWh (billion watt-hours) per year, to the low cost of 0.07 US dollars per kWh. This has the potential to save 50 million US dollars per year as compared to using diesel based generators, using a clean and renewable energy source.

    “Iralalaru HPP” was filmed 2007–08. It was directed, filmed and edited by Basil Rolandsen for HydroTimor. A Bouvet Media Production.
