"GET A JOB," the award-winning motion picture comedy produced entirely in Hawaii which stars Willie K, Eric Gilliom, Augie T, and many of the island’s top entertainers and musicians, releases to DVD on November 1, 2012. The Motion Picture Soundtrack by the Barefoot Natives also goes on sale November 1st. Watch the trailer below!
Produced entirely in Hawaii by islanders, the ground breaking feature film has screened successfully in theaters throughout Hawaii, on the mainland, and in countries such as Spain, India, and Cambodia. On the Film Festival circuit, “GET A JOB” won top prizes in many of the Festivals in which it screened:
DETROIT-WINDSOR INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL - ”Best Comedy”
VENTURA FILM FESTIVAL - “Best Comedy”
LAS VEGAS FILM FESTIVAL - ”Jury Award”
"GET A JOB" represents a small step in the creation of a self-sustaining film industry here in the islands,” says writer/director Brian Kohne of Maui. “We have the talent we need here to craft compelling stories, and I look forward to seeing more feature films from Hawaii filmmakers in the coming years.”
“In many ways it's about stereotypes,” reports Willie K about "GET A JOB," his first movie as a leading man. “People are going to be very surprised by the real story they discover behind the laughter.”
“The DVD and CD are going on sale just in time for the holiday shopping season,” remarks Eric Gilliom. “So I know what I’m getting my mom this year for Christmas, that’s for sure. But I better check with my sister, in case she has the same idea.”
"GET A JOB" stars Willie K, Eric Gilliom, and Augie T, with a cast and crew of over 300 islanders including Jake Shimabukuro, Carolyn Omine (writer for TV’s "the Simpsons"), Henry Kapono, Amy Hanaiali’i, the late Charles Ka’upu, Ernie Cruz Jr., Kealoha, and Kathy Collins.
Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers also make cameo appearances in the wedding band. Author and sports broadcaster Raymond Rolak makes a cameo as the surf student.
The movie was written/directed by Brian Kohne, and produced by Stefan Schaefer. The music in the movie really shines, as exemplified on the Barefoot Natives "GET A JOB” soundtrack CD.
