Train On.

Don’t lie. We know you can name most if not ALL the original 151 Pokemon, and you probably remember the theme song as well. After all, it was the very best, like no one ever was.

(I guess that’s all true if you’re a millennial anyway.)

Sight & Sound got the opportunity to catch ‘em all with our friends from Production Partners Inc. (PPI), to scout, crew, manage, and provide all camera, audio, grip, and lighting equipment for a series of narrative commercial shorts ahead of the release of Nintendo’s Pokemon Sun and Moon for the 3DS.

Our crew interfaced with the seasoned professionals at PPI, who for decades have been a resource for international productions and Japanese agencies. Shooting in over a dozen locations around Oahu, Sight & Sound offered full service to the crew, agency, and talent who flew in from the other great chain of islands across the Pacific. We employed RED Dragons, Zeiss Super Speed Primes, complete grip and electrical truck packages, wireless HD video monitoring and playback, location management, and Bill Maheras was the gaffer.

It was a huge amount of work, but that’s what it takes to be a Master! 

Enjoy the videos and Train On!



Aircrafts can be photogenic even when grounded, and Sight & Sound proves that whenever we provide lighting and crew for Hawaiian Airlines print & video marketing productions.

In the hanger or on the tarmac, our experienced crew employs ARRI, Cinemills, and K5600 HMI lighting to feature the comfort and convenience offered by the top ranked air carrier in Hawaii.

SX3 goes to the Zoo

Sight & Sound took a trip to the Honolulu Zoo with "Sunrise: On the Road" - Hawaii News Now's live morning show. Providing gaffer/grip equipment & crew, we tried not to wake the Sumatran Tigers before first light.

We employed some of the newer additions to our arsenal, including Kino Flo Parabeam 410 and our FILMGEAR LED 360.
