GIANT MONSTERS ATTACK HAWAII! is Hawaii’s answer to popular science fiction movies such as Godzilla and Cloverfield with a family friendly twist: it is told through the point of view of an unqualified giant monster on rampage in Waikiki. From Dane Neves, the award-winning director of “The Green Tie Affair” and “The Monkeyboy Fever”, comes an exciting new movie experience unlike anything Hawaii has ever seen, fusing state-of-the-art monster hand puppets, dazzling special effects, and the unsurpassed beauty of Hawaii.
Many local Hawaii filmmakers are volunteering their time to help bring this short film to the big screen. The project has so far attracted the talents of up-and-coming stand up comedian Grant Uchida, playing the voice of our hero monster, and former KHNL anchorwoman Diane Ako. However, the real stars of this film are the four menacing giant monsters, each inspired by those iconic city-stomping creatures of international sci-fi films we’ve all come to know and love.
