It will be a party and celebration Maui style.  There will be food, fun and music besides the great connections to the Hawaiian film community.  This gala movie premiere is a benefit for the Maui Food Bank.  On Sunday, November 28, the cast and crew will be at the Castle Theatre for the Maui premiere of “GET A JOB”.

"Get a Job" stars Willie K and Eric Gilliom


Producer, Stefan Schaefer said, “We were fortunate to have such great musical talent to set up the funny side of so many scenes.”  Schaefer is a veteran of German films and television.

In this hilarious presentation, William (Willie K) is a former musician and now successful employment agent.  His own career is in jeopardy when over the course of a week; he repeatedly fails to find work for Merton (Eric Gilliom).  Merton is a lovable local boy who surfs everyday in a spot where there are no waves.

Director Brian Kohne added, “I wanted to tell about the people here.  I hope this film will encourage other filmmakers to make local features.”

The spirited comedy is highlighted by appearances from world-renowned musicians, including Mick Fleetwood, Pat Simmons, Jake Shimabukuro and Henry Kapono as well as the antics of Augie T.

The soundtrack features music by the Barefoot Natives, Willie K and Amy Hanaiali’i.   Shimabukuro and Uncle Willie-K have great European followings as recording artists.

Carolyn Omine, Kathy Collins and longtime Maui artist, David Sandell have recurring comedic part.  Also, Hawaii swimsuit model, Maya Iida was featured.

The post-screening ‘wrap party’ celebration will feature Dr. Nat & The Get-A-Job All Star Band.  The movie is at 6:00 P.M and music afterwards.  Proceeds benefit the Maui Food Bank and Maui Arts & Cultural Center education programs.

Tickets are $17, and an item, non perishable food-stuffs, for the Maui Food Bank is requested.
