Today  I returned home after two months working in Hawaii on a short television series for The Weather Channel.  My final days there were spent with camera operator Mark Gerasimenko and owner/pilot Richard Schuman from Makani Kai Helicopters, on a trip around Oahu and Molokai. On the journey we got some killer aerial broll as well as air to air shots of the King Air planes used in the show. The Cineflex camera system we used mounts to the front underbelly of the helicopter and is operated from inside via a monitor and control deck. The footage came out beautiful, I'm excited to see it used in the episodes for the show. Such a great way to close out an awesome trip and experience. The first of six half hour episodes of Hawaii Air Rescue will premiere on The Weather Channel September 12th at 9 p.m. ET. The show follows the paramedics, nurses, and crews of Hawaii Life Flight, who air transport patients from the outer islands of Hawaii to the main hospitals in Honolulu. Here is a brief article talking about the show, more press to some soon.
