Hi’ilawe: Notes From Oahu

Comments Off

Here’s some nice behind-the-scenes footage shot in pre-production and during the making of Aloha, set to slack key master Ledward Kaapana’s soulful rendition of the Hawaiian standard “Hi’ilawe”. The warmth and open arms with which we were received in Hawaii is something we will never forget. Mahalo to all our friends back on the islands!!

The Awe Of Space

Comments Off

“I sometimes think with all the discussion of hardware and weaponized-tech if we’ve lost a little bit of the wonder of space — the magic of just looking upward, into the unknown.  I love this old footage from the dawn of space exploration.  It’s filled with giddy romance and the promise of what’s to come.  And it’s also a real tribute to the NASA scientists, technicians, and astronauts … the 20th Century pioneers who pushed every boundary and reached further than our wildest dreams could have imagined…”

A Comment on Allison Ng

Comments Off

ngchair

From the very beginning of its appearance in the Sony Hack, “Aloha” has felt like a misunderstood movie. One that people felt they knew a lot about, but in fact they knew very little. It was a small movie, made by passionate actors who wanted to join me in making a film about Hawaii, and the lives of these characters who live and work in and around the island of Oahu.

Thank you so much for all the impassioned comments regarding the casting of the wonderful Emma Stone in the part of Allison Ng. I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud ¼ Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one.  A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii.  Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that.

Whether that story point felt hurtful or humorous has been, of course, the topic of much discussion. However I am so proud that in the same movie, we employed many Asian-American, Native-Hawaiian and Pacific-Islanders, both before and behind the camera… including Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele, and his village, and many other locals who worked closely in our crew and with our script to help ensure authenticity.

We were extremely proud to present the island, the locals and the film community with many jobs for over four months. Emma Stone was chief among those who did tireless research, and if any part of her fine characterization has caused consternation and controversy, I am the one to blame.

I am grateful for the dialogue. And from the many voices, loud and small, I have learned something very inspiring. So many of us are hungry for stories with more racial diversity, more truth in representation, and I am anxious to help tell those stories in the future.

Thanks again

Aloha Inspirations: Ninotchka & Emma Stone

Comments Off

“Ah, the great Ernst Lubitsch’s Ninotchka is a movie that will fill you with charm and humor of the highest order. Emma Stone’s Air Force Pilot Captain Allison Ng was modeled on Greta Garbo’s memorable Russian envoy character Ninotchka.”
