Showdown in Kaka’ako

September 16th, 2014 · No Comments

How was the Hawaii Five-0 premiere? Pretty damn amazing, honestly. I have been lucky enough to be involved with these Sunset on the Beach red carpet events since they started in some form or another, and this was the first year that I was just an invited guest. I felt lucky to be there at all. I wish you could have come with me. Here though – I went and saved as many of my videos from snapchat that I could and stitched them together for you just in case you don’t snapchat (?!?!) so you can relive it with me. It’s barely a minute long but you’ll get the full jist of it :)

As for Showdown in Chinatown… I made it. Barely! After making that grand entrance/exit to the premiere I lost my girls after lurking the red carpet interviews and couldn’t find them again. “We have a seat for you” my friend Sanoe texted me as I was viciously snapchatting as much of the spectacle as possible. I wound up sitting in the sand since they were too far in the middle and I didn’t want to be caught squishing through both before and during the show. It was a nice view of the opening though and gave me a very easy out to run back to my car and run to Chinatown in time for the film competition. I raced to the street to find a cab then grabbed my car and bolted to Kakaako with probably about 3 minutes to spare.

It was so worth it.

I was so incredibly impressed with not only the films but the original music the filmmakers were given to choose from. The winning film was a fantastic work of art from Director Rose Wolf, who performed alongside her muse, dancer Nathaniel Whitaker.

Huge shout-outs to her team of visionaries Aisis Chen | Cinematographer, Editor Spencer Agoston | Set Production Dan Baram | Still Photography, Production Assistance Danielle Halford | Production Assistance Tim Orden | Still Photography, Production Assistance, Title Design. Everything from the concept to the photography, performance, even the graphic design was so on point. This is why I love this event. I left feeling very happy to have made it. Then I went home to change to go back out and fell asleep. Sorry Maria =(

“Relationships can sometimes be very black and white. One person has their own way of living life in a bright white world, another person in their dark black world. But sometimes two people find each other and blend their world their worlds together. Then more compassion, emotion and color fill our hearts and our world. ” – Rose Wolfe

NICE job lady. I love you.
