Studio Head’s Message

Got a Story to Tell?

ID8 (ide•ate) Studios is dedicated to empowering storytellers with big ideas, big hearts and the desire to push the envelope of production arts. We exist to support the leading edge of production arts and artists, both local and visiting. We accomplish this by supporting a creative community with production education, relationships and resource-matching. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or an aspiring storyteller, ID8 Studios wants you.

We’re also committed to supporting the production of Hawaii’s stories. Beyond being one of the most picturesque locations in the world, Hawai’i is a story mecca. Hawai’i is unique. Quirky. Beautiful. Centuries of indigenous cultural history and a last-century multi-cultural melting pot evolution render Hawai’i a rich soup of values, beliefs and experience. Hawai’i has much to teach the world.

Corporations, nonprofits and foundations are invited to participate in helping us understand local production needs and to provide funding support. Sponsor visibility options are available at the studio and in productions. Please join us.

On behalf of Bizgenics/ID8, mahalo for supporting Hawaii’s stories and storytellers.

With aloha,

Steve Sue, ID8 Studio Head | Bizgenics/ID8 Chairman
