Electro-technology company operating throughout Australia to deliver installation, maintenance and manufacturing services from inception to replacement.

Celebrating 100 years of NilsenSince 1916

Nilsen helped launch the career of an Aussie film superstar

Nilsen Premiere was established in 1979 with the aim of introducing pay TV to Australia but fans of BMX Bandits can thank the company’s change of direction for this beloved film.

With pay TV slow to get off the ground, Nilsen Premiere ventured into movie production, choosing the action-packed kid’s adventure film for their first project. They oversaw production from start to finish, investing over $1,177,000 into filming as well as sourcing facilities and talent.

Among the talented young actors cast, was a fresh-faced, red-headed beauty named Nicole Kidman. Audiences and critics alike fell in love with the film, and with Nicole. The film’s success saw the 16 year old BMX Bandit rise to stardom, to become one of Hollywood’s leading ladies.
