“It was an amazing experience to go from creating our (story) packages together as a team, to filming in-studio and then being able to slowly see it all come together in the edit,” said Hiʻilawe Neves, who was a producer, anchor and editor. “Our class worked extremely hard on Show 29 and 30 and I think our bond with one another was what really made the shows great. Watching the shows at the end of the semester on K5 was surreal, I just felt so proud of myself, my classmates and my professors for getting through this semester and creating something we are all happy with.”

Elyce Hastings, one of the producers, added, “Working on the UHMtv show has been a grand opportunity that has allowed me to not only grow as a writer, but as an artist as a whole. I’m really thankful for the team I got to work with on this project as I believe we all really gave our all to make it the best it could be.”

The School of Communication and Information is part of UH Mānoa’s College of Social Sciences.
