Produced entirely in Hawaii by islanders, the ground breaking feature film has screened successfully in theaters throughout Hawaii, on the mainland, and in overseas in Spain, India, and Cambodia.  On the Film Festival circuit, “GET A JOB” won top prizes in many of the Festivals in which it screened:

BIG ISLAND FILM FESTIVAL  –  “Best Hawaiian Feature” and “Audience Choice Award” 


  VENTURA FILM FESTIVAL  – “Best Comedy”   

  LAS VEGAS FILM FESTIVAL  –  “Jury Award”   

  The movie was written/directed by Brian Kohne, and produced by Stefan Schaefer.  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.” 

  Always ready to jump into comedic character, Eric Gilliom said, “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.

  Rockers, Mick Fleetwood, Willie Nelson, and Pat Simmons of the Doobie Brothers made cameo appearances in the wedding band.  

  The music, especially the soundtrack from the “Barefoot Natives” rocks throughout the movie.  An interesting side note to post production was that all the sound design and sound engineering was done by Polish Nationals recruited by Raymond Rolak.  “We have some unique merchandising goals in Poland and beyond and the sound technology, sound design and sound mixing from Marcin Tyszka and Allen Zaleski was Bardzo Dobrze, added Kohne.  The movie is a party to be shared on a global scale.  The movie is cultural-fusion.”
