The third time was the charm for Haku Inoa to finally receive funding from the Independent Television Service’s (ITVS) www.itvs.org LINCS initiative. I have been very fortunate to have had the ongoing support of both PBS Hawai`i www.pbshawaii.org as a partner and the support of Pacific Islanders in Communications www.piccom.org for all three times that I have applied to the initiative.
As I have been slowly letting the news out about the new funder people naturally ask me what the next steps are. So, here is a little outline of what my plans are in the upcoming months.
1. Early to Mid February – Finish a full length 3-column script outlining all sequences in order with narration, interviews, visuals, effects, music, ect…
2. March – pre-production
3. April to May – production and shooting for
4. May to September – editing.
5. September to January – grant writing and other paperwork type things to raise the last $50,000 needed for completion funds.
So that’s the plan. It’s very exciting news to release at the beginning of the new year, and there will be a lot of happening to update updates about the project, so stay in touch! You can join the Haku Inoa mailing list on Mail Chimp by clicking here
