We had the chance to do a little lurking on the set of local movie production “One Kine Day” and even snuck in a quick Q and A with local director Chuck Mitsui from 808 Skate fame. I must say the set was very impressive and Chuck seemed to be running a very tight ship. After enjoying lunch with the director and Lady Zana we sat in on a few live rehearsals and got to see everyone’s favorite gaffer Lukas get busy. Haolewood Productions Stay Up.!! Stay tuned for the official trailer.
