Locating Resources

Honolulu is a production center, not just a location, so you can shoot your tropical film without having to ship tons of gear to far reaches of the world. Everything you need to make movies is here, including people in every discipline of the craft, some with 20 years of experience and more on big shows. We are way beyond film friendly. We're film ready.
