I think the majority of stunt players in Hawaii are apart of HAN and the Hawaii Stunt Performers group. But I think a Facebook page is a good way to reach outside of Hawaii to the rest of the world. As well as building a more broad networking with affiliates to the stunt industry such as martial arts, gymnastics, PK, F/X artists, etc.
I don't think there is, but it is easy to make a FB page for it. It would have to be a fan page that people would click that they like it and every post would go to their home wall.
You want to curate the Hawaii Stunt Enthusiast FaceBook page? I think it's a good idea.
On my way to the "Battleship" set today I noticed one of the PK routs that I have seen on HPK. It was up in the Makiki towards Kalihi area. It was the one that has some natural rock to climb on in the back with some kind of day care or something on the property. I use to live in Makiki and never been by it.
I've been telling a lot of people about you and HPK that I have met on set interested in furthering their stunt passions.
I live in Kaimuki and was doing some training at the Alawai Canal entrance with this guy I found on Craigslist. But I've been crazy busy (time and money) starting my show. I just finally finished the graphics to promote online and now I need to start painting that on my bed of nails. My friend at Star 101.9 FM has been awesome and promoting the show while it is in pre-production.
Let me know if you guys have a weekend jam session in my area (Kaimuki, UH Manoa, Waikiki). When I use to check out what was going on at HPK it was always out of my area or "open session: location - unspecified". I've been wanting to check out that spot between me and Diamond Head, but last time I went out I could not find it.
See ya around.
There are no stunt training facilities in Hawaii unless you are a member of the Hawaiian Stunt Association (the only stunt company in Hawaii). I actually don't think they have a facility, maybe just the equipment. The best training for stunts in Hawaii and pretty much anywhere else is: exactly what you are doing! Parkour, gymnastics, martial arts.
The only classes and training facilities I have found (posted on HSP) are actually straight from the HPK website. You might not know it, but I have always considered HPK as a stunt training community and you as a teacher. I think that you should introduce yourself and about parkour (90% of people do not know what it is) to everyone apart of Hawaii Stunt Performers.They are looking for some form of training and can not find it on the island. I've been telling them that this is greatest and truest stunt training and conditioning there is! I mean really; you are doing stunts while training. I made sure to put parkour on the top of my resume when I sent it to the stunt coordinator for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 (filming now on Oahu). I'm seeing a lot more parkour used in the industry as more people become aware of it.
HPK inspired me to get out there, get fit, and condition myself for any stunt I may come across. I just started parkour a year ago and It's been a while since I've been out. Been very busy getting my circus sideshow together for debut. Guess I'm not that fit anymore.
Thanks again for joining. It's great to have you apart of the community.
Thank you for joining Hawaii Stunt performers Ozzi.
I have been promoting Parkour and HPK to the stunt community as a great discipline for training and conditioning. Feel free to use this networking group to spread the word.
