What do we need to do to grow an indigenous film industry in Hawaii?
This luncheon panel program will examine the status of the film industry in Hawaii, its prospects going forward and what can be done to bring the elements and talent together to better build the industry.
It will feature two blue-ribbon panels, one on the business side of the industry moderated by local film producer Jason Lau of Talk-Story Productions, and the other on the production and artistic side of the industry moderated by Chuck Boller of the Hawaii International Film Festival.
The panelists will include, among others, attorney Bill Meyer, Georja Skinner of the Creative Industries Division at DBEDT, Rann Watumull of the Hawaii Film Group, Marlene Booth of the Academy for Creative Media, Brenda Ching of SAG/AFTRA, director Gerard Elmore and Todd Robertson of Hyperspective Studios.
The film industry is a natural for Hawaii, and an indigenous film industry would be a powerful sector for our state economy. Can we, should we, work harder to grow an indigenous film industry? If so, what steps do we need to take. If we don't, what opportunities will we be squaundering? Come and find out.
We'll be discussing these issues at the ThinkTech HVCA luncheon program on July 26th, 2012 at the Plaza Club from 11:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Enjoy good food, great people and first class networking. Register at hvca.org or call Gail at 382-4638.
