HBO Wondering Whether "Aloha" Means Hello Or Goodbye

HBO's plans to film the pilot for Lessons Learned, an hourlong Vietnam-era dramatic series, in Hawaii in October may face a shortage of technicians, the Honolulu Star-Bulletin reported Wednesday.

The newspaper said that Local 655 of IATSE, the film technicians union, will have all available crew working on Baywatch Hawaii, the John Woo movie Windtalkers, and Jurassic Park III in October.

HBO Pictures had received a shooting permit last July to use state property in Maunawili, Oahu for the production but had delayed the start of filming while it scouted other, less expensive locations in Australia and elsewhere, the newspaper said.
