Beyond the mesmerizing sunsets, postcard beaches and world-class surfing, lies a culture rooted in ancient ethnic influences and unique tradition. The Hawaiian culture influences everything from language and religion to fashion and cuisine. But to live in Hawai’i is to know the real Hawai’i. Foreigners continue to gain economic power, causing the loss of land and resources for Hawaiians. We agree when Dwayne Johnson says the goal of developing, producing and filming in Hawai’i is to keep the hard-working local people employed and stimulating the local economy. With experienced crew and talent at the helm, we can be sensitive to local customs and heed both environmental and cultural considerations in every aspect of shooting. Let’s keep the legacy of filmmaking in Hawai’i strong.
