GB HAJIM

GB Hajim of “ Planet one prod.”

It still continues to amaze me when old contacts suddenly
reach out to call you from past projects. I recently received a
call from an old client and fellow comrade in the post production
business here in the big island of Hawaii.
In between large projects I usually try and create smaller projects
to try an idea out or test a new style of editing , mainly to
keep myself busy- I had contacted GB several years ago when I
first had the idea of starting to produce the { Flash Frame }
podcasts. And armed with a small audio recorder and an old 3
Pixel cam, I met him at his budding studios.

A moment with...GB HAJIM from AXIS MEDIA on Vimeo.



An animator by trade, he has been deeply involved in creating a
viable animation house on the island that can compete with
mainland studios. Not withstanding his own talent, he also
teaches the film and video class at UH Hilo. Introducing this
new field to the local students, he has not only provided many
new career opportunities but also a new creative outlet that few
have known about till now.
His company Planet One prod. has recently finished construction
of a world class animation and production house just
north of Hilo.

The small podcast I did on him was completed several years
ago and shows him hard at work making his feature sci fi animation
film “ Strange Frame”

Its always nice to get calls praising your past accomplishments.
Especially when they come from your fellow workers within the
industry. It just goes to show that you truly have no idea how
your products will eventually effect people so you have to strive
to do your very best on each and every project.
Each and every project you complete or attach your name to
should represent who you are and try to treat it like a calling card for work,
you never know when the actions of your past projects will show
themselves to help you in your current state.

Ask your self, what does the work I create today say about me or my creativity?
We have no idea what the future may bring. Sometimes I get lost in
the art of creating and forget to remind myself to look over
the details and pay attention and be present for the creating of
the work. Such calls and praise can serve as a reminder to pay
attention to the details. The devil after all is in the details. Pay
attention, for you may never know who is viewing your work, and
it may prove to bring you work in the future.
