About this Event

About the Film Talk

A graphic designer by trade, Chad refocused his energies in 2014 from freelance work to creating content that aligns with his passion for Hawaiian history and culture. Together with his wife Lisa, Chad created the Maka‘iwa Keiki YouTube channel, which teaches basic Hawaiian language through original songs and family-friendly animated content. Chad's latest project is WAO AKUA - Realm of Gods, a Young Adult animated series inspired by the rich mythologies of Hawai‘i and the Pacific. With the WAO AKUA series, Chad wishes to create an enduring property produced and created in Hawai‘i that features local talent as well as those with Hawai‘i roots.

This is a free, all ages event. You do not need a ticket to attend. Tickets will not be collected.
