Brian: @Dan, if you were as obnoxious and ridiculous as the actors are you'd get called haole all day...LOL!
Johnson Choi: Few if any talk about their Hawaii's roots on both sides of the Pacific. Hawaii has done little to court them to be our spoke persons or as good will ambassadors for Hawaii.Tia Carrere lobbied for film tax credits in Hawaii and frequently talks about her Hawaii roots.

GB Hajim: I feel like the local production people did a great job: the stunts were great, the sets, costuming, and camera work etc. The problem with the show is the people that aren't from here did a shoddy job with the writing (too formulaic and not enough wit- three good jokes for a whole ep?), terrible direction and somebody really needs to get a pidgin coach for these actors! If they don't switch up the writers and direction soon, I fear the show won't last long.100% agree.
Johnson Choi: We have started the http://www.catalog.hawaii.edu/schoolscolleges/arts-sciences/departm... at the University of Hawaii. I think it is a good start.UH's ACM program is a great start. KCC's new media arts program has some great instructors with industry experience at ILM, Pixar, etc. UH PNM, which has been a great supporter of TechHui, also does film related workshops.
