The Netflix Generation: How the Demand for Streaming Television and Film Could Help Hawaii

Pau Hana + Policy = Engagement

Got PPE?

With Hawaii in a second round of shutdowns due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, business and community leaders are looking for innovative and adaptive ways to rebuild its economy. One industry that has gained prominence during the pandemic has been streaming media services. With new shows and movies constantly offering fresh content and familiar classics, “what are you binge watching” is the new question everyone is asking.

Hawaii has long cultivated the television and film industry, and with demand at an all-time high, this already self-contained production could offer a way to safely infuse jobs and revenue into the state while adhering to strict COVID-related guidelines.

Join us for our next Pau Hana Hour in our 2020 Series as our star-studded panel discuss how the demands for streaming media could help to safely diversify and rebuild Hawaii’s economy during these unprecedented times:

  • Melvin Mar (Jumanji Movies, Doogie Kamealoha), Producer
  • Dan Lin (Aladdin, It, The Lego Movies), Producer
  • Amy Hill (Magnum PI, 50 First Dates), Actress
  • Donne Dawson, State Film Commissioner

Moderated By Chris Lee, Founder & Director, Academy for Creative Media Systems at the University of Hawaii

Update: Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii Five-0, The Good Doctor), Producer, is unable to participate.
