Locations in Hawai‘i
Hawai'i has become a highly desired location for productions of all kinds. The combination of unmatched natural beauty and a thriving, experienced crew base makes the state a perfect fit for just about any project. Need it to look like Southeast Asia? No problem. Need a more country western look? Easy. How about Mars or the moon? Yup, Hawai'i has that. It has urban, cosmopolitan, and grit, too. Add the variety of tropical Hawaiian beaches, coastline, ocean and waterfalls and the possibilities are endless.
Why come to Hawai‘i

Having originated in a very small and remote community, we’ve been “green” long before it was popular. Our default is always to source locally and use environmentally friendly materials. We encourage reusable materials and even frequently put idle PA’s on “trash pickup” when on location so that we always leave locations better than we found them.
We plan to get “trained” with AdGreen in the coming months and are also considering joining 1% for the Planet.
