Big Island Gigs is a Hawai'i Island based film and video production and location services company. We provide crew, equipment, locations and local knowledge for TV and Film production on the Island of Hawai'i.

Who is BIG?

BIG helmers are long time Hawai'i residents (four generations at present) with a history of pioneering independent filmmaking on the island starting fifteen years ago. We serve on the Advisory Board with the Big Island Film Office and are actively partnering with local government, land owners, vendors and crew to make the Big Island of Hawai’i a top-choice for film and television production.

We know Hawai'i Island (The BIG Island) like no other and with 11 of the 13 climate zones, we believe you will find what you are looking for. We love our beautiful island and want to share its striking features with you - from rugged desert terrains, to lush valleys, sandy shore lines and tropical forests and more.

As filmmakers ourselves, we understand the needs of both small and large productions - and take pride in a well run set. Our amazing crews will serve you with professionalism and Aloha!


What does BIG do?

BIG provides professional services to various types of film and video productions from Commercials to Reality TV, Promos, Documentaries, Photo shoots, Episodic TV, Feature Films, Special Events and more.
