Maui's Haleakala Crater
Maui’s Haleakala Crater

A mythical planet … a bustling urban street corner …a west African village… a sprawling Texas ranch…a remote Vietnamese jungle … a rainforest in South America.

These are just a few of the many worlds within Hawaii. And while most of these locations seem about as far away from Hollywood as you can get, they’re only a five-hour flight from Los Angeles. In fact, no other place on Earth offers more convenient, more diverse, or more magnificent filming opportunities.

The sheer number of unique locations here is staggering. An active volcano. Cattle ranches. The tallest sea cliffs in the world. Volcanic craters as large as Manhattan. Snow-capped mountain peaks. Dense jungles (where your cell phone actually works). And some of the world’s best beaches.

And the best part about our locations, which we like to say are “as close as faraway gets,” is that they are usually never more than an hour from the best hotels and all the safety and comforts of home.
