What an amazing day. Not only did our local community turn-up in numbers, but the staging on a cleared street was absolutely perfect.
Shooting on Leahi Avenue, this location was the pinnacle of gorgeous, iconic Hawaii with such an intimate view of Diamond Head overlooking the chaos on ground-level. Aside from our large crew of flagmen and security, it was such a joy assembling background as both evacuees and policemen. Not to mention getting our red Mustang back.
Today was one of the most critical scenes for the entire film. There was truly so much to cover in our limited time in the residential neighborhood including:
• Staging evacuated cars
• Special effects make-up
• Directing background
• Intermittent Traffic Control
• Parking and base camp security
• Smoke machine effects
A necessary MAHALO must be made for the support from our local City and County and our local community, who made all of this possible.
