Mahalo. Thank you. Mahalo.

I am writing this today with a heart full of gratitude.
The documentary project that I’ve been writing about, RETURN TO HĀLAWA: The Life and Music of ʻAnakala Pilipo, has been successfully funded on Kickstarter. I’m told this is a huge accomplishment as fewer than 50% of the projects reach successful funding. (According to statistics pulled today, the success rate is 43.92%)
And to think that a documentary about a Hawaiian man from the remote island of Molokai has joined the ranks of the successful projects! Wow!
Of course, it’s really about so much more. It’s about sharing knowledge. Passing along a tradition. Sharing a legacy with future generations. Crossing cultural boundaries. It’s one of those little movies with a big message.
And because of YOU and your support–both financial and emotional–this film is going to become a reality!
Yes… we’ve got lots of work ahead of us. Matt is working hard to assemble the film and continuing to shoot new footage. I’m continuing to write new tunes for the soundtrack. Then we’ll begin looking at all of the ways to share the film. And so on… and so on… and so on…
My heart is full of thanks.
MAHALO! MAHALO! MAHALO!
