Aloha Hawaii Film Industry Member,

          There are rumors floating around of a few major motion pictures coming to Hawaii in the next couple of months. We know how excited this unverified information can be. While we are not privilege to confirm if the rumors are true, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone the purpose of the Hawaii Actors Network (Social Lab for Hawaii's Film Industry). When we started this network, visiting productions were in the practice of bringing 90% of their production needs to Hawaii when it was time to film. Over the years we have learned that this practice was not in place because they did not want to hire locally but because they had very limited ways of finding Hawaii's Talent. With that said, for the past 6 years we have been on the mission of bringing worldwide attention to Hawaii's Talent.

Our ultimate goal is to provide a platform that gives visiting productions a snapshot of what type of talent Hawaii has to offer them when they are making decisions to film here. However, the only way we thought this could happen is to have a network where Hawaii's Talent is professionally displayed for visiting productions to see before they arrive to Hawaii. Now that we have this platform, we believe that there will soon be a time when visiting productions will only bring 20% of thier production needs to the islands and hire everyone else locally. Boy, wouldn't that be #AWESOME. As we learn more about productions coming to Hawaii, we should not use this platform for exploiting that they are filming in Hawaii. We should use this information as a message to get ourselves ready so that more of us will get the chance to work on these productions. We would love to see more local actors get a chance at some of the bigger roles and more background performers get hired for more days. #extrasmatter It would be a good idea for us to start conversations about what we need to do (for ourselves) in order we are ready to audition and be hired. We look forward to hearing that MANY of our members got a chance to work on these upcoming productions. 

I just recently watched an interview with Oprah Winfrey on the subject of career, life and leadership. I learned so much from that interview and decided to post on the front of the network for you to watch. So when you have a moment go onto HAN and check it out. It's a must see interview.

Via Reel Tours Hawaii:

The new animated Disney movie "Moana" was announced at the D23 Expo today and audience reaction was off the charts. Seems it has all it needs to be an instant classic! Can't wait to see this Polynesian style adventure next year!
