    The Star-Bulletin reports that the Hawaii Advertising Federation gave out its individual awards at an event last night, and that the "finalists in the four Pele Award categories for best television commercial were shown. Winners will be announced at the Pele Awards ceremony April 1."

    Anyone know what those finalists were? If it was shown to 200 people in an industry dedicated to spreading the word, certainly they can't be secret!

    Welllllllll...that's why I prefaced my reply with "For the most part..."! I'll hazard a guess that the super low budget spots that use friends and family on camera aren't much of a problem, talent-wise. However, spots such as Bankoh's could probably be a problem...as could local McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and a lot more.

    Talent aside, I doubt someone could make money on a DVD full of commercials that others spent a lot of time and money creating and producing without getting permission. And, who knows...it might be easy! Now...I have no experience in this area because it hasn't been done locally but the Screen Actors Guild commercial contract could (not would) require additional payment to the actors. It's just something to be aware of and not overlooked.

    There's a series of "Classic Commercials" videos on the market. I have no idea how those came to be. But it shows that compilation videos are possible.

    I was 'sposed to attend yesterday but couldn't because of work. My good friend, Kim, was named Advertising Woman of the Year. Yay Kimmy!!!! Anyhooooo...I could probably find out the finalists but I'd rather be surprised at the event. Kinda like finding out the sex of a baby before it's born!

    I'm disappointed that there seems to be a new tradition of handing out those awards at a separate ceremony. I liked it when it was a part of the Pele Awards...which it was until this year. And a luncheon, to boot, right in the middle of a work day during busy season. Whatta disappointment to not be in attendance to cheer Kim on and give her a few loud raspberries! We're such a classy group!

    After I replied above I briefly wondered about a statute of limitations or a public domain situation. Then work interrupted my curiosity! Researching that kind of info would fall under "homework" for Kalihiboy.

    Man, the world can't get much smaller. Met a guy at lunch who just happens to be a "marketing fanboy." The Pele finalists from the big dinner are below.

    For Tutusue, I'll spoiler it for folks who don't want to ruin the surprise.

    Finalists - Budget < $10,000:
    • "Seed" for First Insurance (CP Advertising)
    • "Identity" for First Insurance (CP Advertising)
    • "You Old Bag" for HMSA [Online Video]
    • "UH Legends Yuval" for Burger King (Harris Agency)
    • "UH Legends Monico" for Burger King (Harris Agency)
    Finalists - Budgets $10-25,000:
    • "Car Wash" for Hawaii Dental Association (Element 8)
    • "Jaws" for Hawaii Dental Association (Element 8)
    • "Fifi" for HMSA [Online Video]
    • "Trash Can" for Board of Water Supply (Laird Christianson)
    • "Severance Pay" for KFC Hawaii (Harris Agency)
    • "Campfire" for Honolulu Symphony (Shooters)
    Finalists - Budgets > $25,000:
    • "Remote TV" for AIG Hawaii (Hendrix Miyasaki Shin)
    • "Present" for AIG Hawaii (Hendrix Miyasaki Shin)
    • "Accident" for State Farm Insurance (Milici Valenti Ng Pack)
    • "Hawaiian Telecom Brand Launch" (Milici Valenti Ng Pack)
    • "Pig" for State Farm Insurance (Milici Valenti Ng Pack)
    Retail:
    • "Nice Gig" for MidWeek (Harris Agency)
    • "Ipod Multi" for Central Pacific Bank (Hendrix Miyasaki Shin)
    • "Car Guys" for McDonalds of Hawaii (Milici Valenti Ng Pack)
    • "Test Drive" for McDonalds of Hawaii (Milici Valenti Ng Pack)
    • "Fashion" for Whalers Village (Ostrander Chu)
    • "Office" for Body Mint (Vertigo Projects)
    For those who look, one company's ads are actually available online. I should search to see if any other local ads - Pele finalists or not - are online as well.

    My question is how in the world would SAG be able to find some of these actors that appeared in these locally produced ads. If they appeared only once then I doubt they are SAG members anymore. Some of this footage is 25 plus years old I have, I know it would be neat for an actor to see themselves again in an ad but I think finding them to let them know they could have a piece of the pie will be very hard.

    I also have old newscasts with Bob Sevey, Les Keiter and Joe Moore!

    If someone appeared only once I doubt they ever joined SAG. However, they are on record forever with the SAG office via a Taft-Hartley.

    Finding talent, even a year after they shot a commercial when they're due another payment, is a problem. SAG, talent agents and non-union companies have stacks of checks that have been returned because people don't think to inform the union or their agents about a change of address. Many people lose their SAG memberships because of this; they never receive the bill for their dues, don't think to pay it and end up terminated. With SAG jobs I'm pretty sure you'd at least need to make contact with the office to find out what the process is for what you want to do. But first, if I were in your shoes, I think I'd try to find out if there is, in fact, a statute of limitations or, what Kimo mentioned, a public domain situation. I wish I had some details for you but I don't.

    And, just for the record and for the sake of this discussion, I'm talking principals, not extras!

    Ah jeez...didya really think I could resist effortlessly clicking a button to satisfy my curiosity? Must admit I'm happy about many of them and, as usual, scratching my head over others! Regardless, one of my 2 all time favorite casting projects made the list.

    I'm not privvy to what's negotiated (or not negotiated, as the case may be!) in the <10k category because those jobs are usually cast in house. But the >10k categories usually have a talent rate breakdown that includes a separate payment for web use. I'll be interested to know if you find any others online!

    Ok, I give. What's a marketing fanboy?!

    A late follow-up to this thread and the KFC "LOST" ad. I noticed someone uploaded it -- with full clearances and permissions I'm sure (cough cough) -- to YouTube. So, if you haven't seen it (or aren't in Hawaii and couldn't have), you can see it online... or at least a grainy, blurry, Flash-compressed facimile.

    I don't know if these 8 spots will become favorites -- as they've not even hit the air yet ...

    ... but I was stoked to be able to write about high school kids -- and not just the usual priviledged ones -- getting this ad-creating opportunity.

    http://starbulletin.com/2006/04/11/b...s/story01.html

    I'm looking forward to seeing them.

    I just reviewed my Galactica 1980 beta tape from 26 years ago taped off of KITV from 1980, here are the commercials/promo's:

    Kung Fu rerun weekday afternoons
    Barney Miller promo
    Newscenter 4 Closeup Story: "Down & Out, the Story of Hawaii's Streetpeople"
    hosted by Emme
    Muffler Bay at Tire Warehouse
    Burger King with a ticker revealing all of the local winners of a recent contest they had
    Spa Health and Fitness Centers...for an introductory offer of $9.99 for one month will get you group activies like disco dancing for your health
    Local Hostess ad with with a plug for Loves Bakery within it, ad takes place with a mom and her kids at a house.
    Charlie's Angels ID tag
    Laverne & Shirley promo
    Soap promo Monday at 9:00pm
    Three's Company rerun Thursday at 6:30pm
    Newscenter 4 Update (I dont know who the old guy was that did this update)
    Kramer's Clothing ad narrated by Michael W. Perry
    A different local Hostess ad, this time with a teenage outrigger canoe club
    with their lead adult speaking
    Meadow Gold...."A Household word in Hawaii"
    Family promo ID tag

    So nothing much of great interest on the tapes but its one of many I have to go thru now. On another tape I saw a CBS Newsbreak from 1980 and they said due to the garbage workers strike all schools are canceled for the time being.

    Kalihiboy...please explain the 'local hostess' ads. Is that the name of the product? It doesn't ring any bells with me.

    What I meant is that it was a locally produced Hostess ad, you know the company that makes twinkies and one of the two different ads I have the mother says that the bread is baked by Love's Bakery.

    Very interesting! I don't recall any local Hostess ads. O'course that doesn't mean they weren't produced locally...jus' that my long term memory might be failing me! I'd love to see them. Any chance you can post 'em to a web site?

    That's exactly what I was thinking when I first saw something about hostess ads.

    Some of you old-timers may remember that a TV SPOT for the old Lollipop Lounge strip club, complete with dancers and "clientele" was shot in the KITV studio and actually aired (late night) ... before it was yanked (due to viewer complaints) and those involved in its production were suspended briefly.

    It was 1980 or '81, as I recall.

    No extra kudos if you remember the song that was used for the spot, however, as it was too obvious a choice. (Yes, that old song Lollipop was it.)

    And here we are 26 years later and what stories are we seeing/reading? Why, homeless people rousted from Ala Moana Beach Park and staying at Kawaiahao Church.
