HALE KAIMU STUDIO

Located in the lush green remote and rural southeast region of the Big Island ... Hawaii! Kaimu is a historically significant cultural community one mile from the black sand coast and at 300ft(91m) elevation. Weather and temperatures are so very tropical. Year round we are not too hot and not too cold. Not too dry and not too wet. Sometimes we downpour but even at that heavier rains rarely last more than a couple hours and mostly a few minutes. Always we have the cool tropical tradewinds blowing that makes Hawaii such an exotic and delightful destination.

Hale Kaimu Studio sits on five acres of hidden Hawaiian jungle with close proximity to a navigable road that connects to Hilo and the entire Hawaii island. Three acres are clean pasture for staging vehicles and trailers. Two acres are an orchid farm with a two bed, two bath house and an Ohana that converts to a unique private and intimate small studio space for shooting interviews or shows or movie scenes.

A great locale for commercials of all sorts. Locally used for movie scenes like Planet of the Apes and Jurassic Park. For shooting tropical island Polynesian cultural and tribal themed shows or movies Kaimu is an excellent location, yet nearby are all the more modern amenities for banking, groceries, hardware and all supplies.

This small studio space of 800 sq ft(244 sq mt) has 20ft(6.1m) high ceilings on two levels. There is also a small office space and bathroom/makeup area.

Perfect for any sort of truly Hawaii style tropical locale. Neat and compact space with vastly ample room for accommodation and staging for crew and talent over short or long term shoots.
