March Hawaii Weddings 2015 ~ Spring Is Around the Corner

Are you tired of winter yet?  I’ve seen the snowstorms on TV, they look pretty bad.   Here in Hawaii, it’s been rather bad too.  I think it actually got down to 60 degrees two weeks ago and I had to actually put a shirt on when I was walking […]

“POST-PRODUCTION HELL” – After Your Wedding, The Work Just Begins For Me.

Steven Says: THE KNOT SCAM:  Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

THE KNOT SCAM: Don’t buy into their “advertising opportunities”

The Knot ripped me off, and it wasn’t pretty. In December of 2013, I was approached by The Knot via an anonymous phone call to advertise on their website.  The Knot offered me an overkill of web advertising opportunities, most of which was quickly read off a script, and most […]

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2:  Sadly… a little stupid.

HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2: Sadly… a little stupid.

A lot of people make the mistake that because I used to be a screenwriter, and because I am very critical of storytelling, that I prefer to see serious “deep thinking” movies.   Nothing could be farther from the truth.  I love comedies.  In fact, I love what many people […]

Critics are Wrong. The Interview, The Movie, is Good!

There’s no need to echo why this movie has made the news unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past month.  Hot off the press, as of today (12/30/2015), the FBI may be considering evidence that those responsible for the Sony Hack may be disgruntled Ex-Sony employees, rather […]

IT’S BOOKING SEASON!

Every year since I’ve been in business I’ve always gotten a boatload of inquiries in the days and weeks following Christmas and New Years.  I have no scientific proof of why this rare phenomenon occurs, but I truly believe it has to do something the smell of Christmas trees, baked […]
