“From dressing rooms & ipads to awards and dreams” A friend commented this when I won my first ADDY award for sound design 2 years ago. When I was younger I had that stage in my life of not being into hula so I found a passion in music. So I would literally sit with my iPad in the dressing room and jam out making beats. While everyone else in my family was dancing hula and playing Hawaiian music. Never did I think that by refining my craft would lead me to producing & scoring in the film circuit. Mahalo @gerardelmore , @erikries & @mitchelv & the @ohinafilms collective for allowing me to help bring your vision to life. Can’t wait to see this on the national and international film festival circuits ! @kalewathefilm
When all your friends and family come out to show their support... Mahalo to everyone who joined us last Friday at the ‘Ohina Short Film Showcase for the world premiere of ‘Kālewa!’ This film is headed to Maui next weekend, Hawai'i Island after that, then to #filmfestivals around the world. Stay tuned to social media to find out where ‘Kālewa’ is touching down next! #KālewaTheFilm #DaFuture #Ohina18 @OhinaShowcase #OhinaShowcase @OhinaLabs #OhinaLabs @OhinaFilms #OhinaFilms @NellaMediaGroup #NMGnetwork #NMGgrowth

A year ago at our inaugural Ohina Filmmakers Lab, @mitchelv won the Ohina Greenlight Award for his script, HOMECOMING. A year later, after rewrites, casting, shooting, editing, VFX and so much more, that script became the short film, KĀLEWA. It premieres tonight at @ohinashowcase. We just tested it and I couldn’t be prouder of Mitchel, his crew and our entire Ohina team. See it for yourself tonight. 🍾🍾🍾 #KālewaTheFilm #DaFuture #Ohina18 @OhinaShowcase #OhinaShowcase @OhinaLabs #OhinaLabs @OhinaFilms #OhinaFilms @NellaMediaGroup #NMGnetwork #NMGgrowth #ohinagreenlightaward

When shooting behind the scenes #onset all the hard stuff is done before you even arrive. Getting that moment still requires patience and there’s nothing like capturing a creator in his zone.

EXT. BACKYARD - NIGHT Kainoa, in a dress shirt with lei draped over him, anxiously takes a sip of his beer as he stares at the pair of stars. A party at the house bustles in the distance. It’s just noise to him. He’d rather be out there, among the stars.
