Michael Kang's "4 Wedding Planners" - Formerly Known As "Knots" - Released on Video On Demand
"4 Wedding Planners" is a charming "UN-romantic comedy" filmed in Hawaii - written by and starring Kimberly-Rose Wolter ("Tre"), directed by Michael Kang ("The Motel"), and produced by Island Film Group ("Princess Ka`iulani," "Soul Surfer").
Island Film Group's Roy Tjioe and Ricardo Galindez – the same team that produced/ executive produced independent feature films such as "Princess Ka`iulani," "Soul Surfer," as well as television's "Beyond the Break" – played an instrumental role in bringing the filming of "4 Wedding Planners" to locations across Oahu. "4 Wedding Planners" also features an original score by renowned ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro and showcases songs by such beloved Hawaii-based artists as Na Leo Pilimehana, John Cruz, Anuhea, Makana, Paula Fuga, Olomana, Willie K, Kepa Kruse and Eric Gilliom.
“We’re proud to present another film about Hawaii and life in the islands," said Roy Tjioe, principal, Island Film Group. "'4 Wedding Planners' takes a light hearted look at a wedding planning business run by a mom and three hapa daughters from three different dads, focusing on their relationships with each other and the men in their lives. We’re sure it will resonate with audiences everywhere and especially among local folks."
Wolter, who made her writing debut with the feature film "Tre," was born and raised in Manoa, just outside Honolulu. A graduate of Hawaii's Mid-Pacific Institute (Mid-Pac), Wolter was a member of their first graduating class to complete the Mid-Pacific School of the Arts program, where she took her first writing class. Wolter attended the University of Hawaii and went on to complete her education at the University of Southern California. She was joined on the "4 Wedding Planners" set by fellow Hawaii-born cast-mate Janel Parrish in this local production that shares an international message with wry humor and Island-style charm.
