Aloha Featurette: The Mana of Hawaii

Comments Off

IMDB shared this brand new exclusive Aloha featurette yesterday. You will see a few new tidbits from the film, but I’m most excited for your first look at “Bumpy”. Bumpy is played in the film by the real Dennis “Bumpy” Kanahele. He plays a key role in the film and both he and Cameron talk about what Aloha means to them in this video. Enjoy!

Aloha Inspirations: Hawaiian Traditions & History

Comments Off

l

“Another inspiring photo. Hawaii, far more than the mainland, values its traditions and history. The remnants of generations gone by are especially sacred there, and unearthed bones are links to myths, legends and the real-life stories of our ancestors. Another piece of the puzzle that would become the story of the culture and life of our characters in Hawaii.”

Recap: IMDB Twitter Chat

Comments Off

Here’s a recap of yesterday’s Twitter chat that Cameron did with IMDB. I’ve reformatted it to make it easier to read (one paragraph answers, no hashtags, etc.).

For some reason romantic comedies seem to be a lost genre. What makes Aloha unique?

Only a matter of time until some reinvents the genre and makes it fresh again. It always begins with the characters, and the twists that make it real and unique. A great romantic comedy always has aches, along with the laughs. “Silver Linings Playbook” was a great romantic comedy. The new movie “The Overnight” is excellent, as was “Skeleton Twins.” “Aloha” has a lot of elements, one being romantic comedy in the style of the movie “Ninotchka,” that was a favorite of Emma Stone’s too. 

How did you choose the cast?

Everything began with the great Emma Stone then we built from there. Emma was the catalyst. Bradley next. Then Rachel became available.   Krasinski, McBride, Bill Murray. One by one, a dream cast developed. Always such a thrill to have Alec Baldwin with us too. We had a great time on “Elizabethtown.”

Aloha looks like a collision of the past & the future for Bradley’s character. Is that accurate?

Aloha Inspirations: Ledward Kaapana – Hawaiian Slack-Key Legend

Comments Off

“And then there was the music… some of the worlds’ greatest and most expressive guitarists live and work in Hawaii. Here’s one of my favorite guitarists in the world, Ledward Kaapana, with his sometime accompaniest, the equally evocative Mike Kaawa. That’s me directing them both for a sequence in “Aloha,” a real dream come true. The movie was always going to be a stew of intoxicating elements, set to Ledward’s guitar and other music that you might hear on any given week in Hawaii. Talk about the Aloha spirit… it lives in every note of these wonderful artists’ work.”

Aloha Inspirations: Who Owns the Sky?

Comments Off

forsale

A new feature entitled Aloha Inspirations makes its debut today. These images, films and people helped inspire Cameron as he wrote and directed Aloha. The comments are from Cameron in his own words. Enjoy!

“This photo was an early inspiration for “Aloha,” a story which takes place partially in the new world of space exploration. I was fascinated with the effect of the shrinking budgets allowed for modern space study, and this was a fascinating photo of an astronaut who had been sent up to fix an ailing space shuttle. The photo went around the globe, and pre-dated the current situation where private investors are now so active in launching rockets. Who owns the sky? Is it for sale?  The idea really got me going.”
