Hawaii is the most isolated land mass on Earth. Out in the jungle or deep in the sand — things can get complicated. Over the years, Sight & Sound Productions has collected a crew of artists and technicians as diverse as the islands, bringing decades of battle tested creativity and on-set knowledge under one roof — that is the foundation of our company.
Sight & Sound Productions was built from the ground up by filmmakers and has been servicing Hawaii’s Television, Film, and Commercial Industry for over 30 years. With over 200 Episodes of network television and hundreds of commercials under our belt, we're built with the real-world needs of production in mind. Our team speaks the same visual language our clients do. From the first email inquiry, all the way to packing the truck on the last day of the shoot, our unified voice and management eliminates miscommunication and delivers cohesive results.
As Hawaii’s only production company and rental house, we offer everything your team needs in-house. We are a full-service production company specializing in line producing, pre-production, locations, crewing, production, post, and tax-incentives. We stock the largest inventory of cutting edge cameras, lenses, underwater housings, lighting, and grip equipment in Hawaii — saving you the stress and cost of shipping. Our partners include aerial cinematography via drone and helicopter, pursuit vehicles, jibs and techno-cranes, boats and water-safety and more. We are the best resource for locals and mainland clients alike and are prepared to assist your agencies, brands, producers, and directors in creating their vision.
No other facility in the islands offers the same comprehensive service as Sight & Sound.

"This new expanded direction for Sight & Sound Productions builds on the legacy created by the company, which has served as one of several leading local production houses.Hawaii’s film and media industries are essential to the recovery and resiliency of our economy. We applaud the inclusion of mentorship and education strategies, which will only serve to strengthen our locally based workforce in film and creative media; both key facets of Hawaii’s creative economy."
Chief Officer, Creative Industries, Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism (DBEDT).
"I started working with Sight & Sound Productions over a decade ago, and I would estimate that they have since been involved in more than 200 of our jobs, many of which were national commercials for Japanese clients. We have also completed tour company promotions, as well as numerous graphic projects with fashion magazines, restaurants, and products. Our schedule typically doesn’t allow for down time with the cameras, so I especially appreciate the company’s attention to the maintenance of their equipment. The most important aspect of working with the techs at Sight & Sound Productions is the guidance they offer in suggesting alternate or complimentary equipment to our camera list. Many camera houses in Japan do not have the most recent and updated camera equipment, and Sight & Sound Productions’ techs find the right items to meet our budget. They are also available for “on-site” adjustments and add-ons, and they deliver to our locations in the early morning or late evenings. There is no substitute for great service, and they are the most polite people in the industry. That’s a breath of fresh air."

"I’ve worked with Sight & Sound Productions on commercials, multi-cam programs and conventions, and long-format videos. The company has a unique mix of high-end and standard production equipment. And they have thought through what is needed on set. It’s the humble cable, connector or clamp that needs to be in the kit, and if it’s not there, you’re stuck. Sight & Sound Productions has that figured out, so their rental gear is complete. No surprises, thank you. The business is very buttoned-down, with no details left unattended, and the team is professional, knowledgeable and customer service oriented. I can get good advice on what options will work best for me in the unique situation I’m heading into."

"I wanted to thank you for the amazing gear and support on the Meli movie. Your gear is top notch and your facilities are awesome as well. But, mostly, I loved how great your people were to our less experienced crew and outright newbies. They were very good mentors teaching them some of the basics. I feel the crew took a big step forward on our film. Sorry for the late thank you email, I jumped right into the western series when I returned. I know you invested a lot with gear and people and I hope that the film meets your expectations. I'm definitely interested in hearing your thoughts as the film is coming together. Thank you again for your support of the film."
