We believe that every production in Hawaiʻi would be enhanced by connecting to Hawaiʻi’s unique culture, history, language and community.
Ever since Hollywood first experienced the beautiful shores of Hawaiʻi, they realized that this an ideal location for film production and storytelling. This has mostly been beneficial to the production but often a challenge for the host community, the environment and the representation of Hawaiʻi’s unique culture and language. Kūmau aims to provide culturally grounded solutions and opportunities for a richer relationship between the production companies and the host communities, enhancing media production with specialized knowledge in Hawaiian language, history and culture. Helping to create a more vibrant and culturally appropriate finished product that is authentic and unique.
