‘Hawaii Five-0′ takes over Alakea

Video footage of this morning’s “Hawaii Five-0″ shoot

Posted July 22, 2012 by Ed Morita

This morning, on the way to the bus stop, I saw a row of production trucks parked on Bishop Street. I crossed over to Alakea Street, and sure enough, “Hawaii Five-0″ was shooting a scene. Traffic was shut down for five to 10 minutes at a time to shoot a car being chased by two police cars.

My bus was delayed an hour, but I didn’t mind since I was able to get a prime seat to watch the production crew at work.

Here’s a short video I shot of the action.

    Very cool, Ed! I’d be an hour late if I got to witness that, too. :)
