Aloha. Welcome to the Big Island.
I had never been to Hawaii and was pretty excited when we touched down (even with lost luggage and 80% humidity). We spent several days at the Hilton Waikoloa getting ready for the arrival of the cast and crew, working with the staff at the Hilton, the Hawaii Visitor's Bureau, and the Department of Agriculture. There was a lot of work that needed to be done to set up for the actual shooting, which lasted roughly five days.
