New Offices for the Hawaii Film Studio


The old redwood bungalows that served as the production offices for the Hawaii Film Studio have come to the end of their useful lives. That is, they have been overcome by the ravages of time and termites. In their places will be these post-modern buildings.


Plans for the renovations began in 2014. In 2015, the bungalows where props and costumes were stored were replaced. In 2017, $3.3 million was spent on the next phase of the renovation, replacing the other production offices.


The architect's scale model, above, shows what the new facilities look like. The original sound stage, where Five-0 was filmed, and newer ones, have been retained.


I wish Jack and the others who fought so hard to obtain a film studio could see this. Their efforts were not in vain.
