Haku Inoa: To Weave A Name Funded by ITVS


(A recent stop by the ITVS office in San Francisco)

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
