THE BEST ON-SET PHOTO OF ALL TIME: Battle Royal

Posted By Administration, Friday, August 7, 2015


With this issue, Produced By is happy to kick off its photo contest feature, which doubles as an ongoing search for our elusive, legendary quarry: The Best On-Set Photo of All Time.

This issue’s Best On-Set Photo of All Time—BOSPOAT for short—comes from PGA member Kent Matsuoka, who snapped it during the production of episode 217 ("Kupale”) of Hawaii Five-0. The scene depicts a re-enacting of Kaleleka’aneae (or "The Battle of Nu’uanu”) in which Kamehameha defeated rival chief Kalanikūpule to unite the Hawaiian Islands in 1795 and become Hawaii’s first King.

"Many of the crew in Hawaii have a long experience with Hollywood since the original Five-0,” says Kent.

"They’re just as efficient as the best crews in LA, especially in beach and jungle situations for which they have developed unique tools, such as the hand tractor visible on the bottom left of the image.”

Thanks, Kent! As a result of your photo being selected, you’ll receive a free subscription to Produced By to gift to whomever you choose. We think you should strongly consider the guy who came up with that hand tractor.

We know what you’re thinking. "Best of all time? No way. I’ve got an on-set photo way better than that.” If that’s the case, we dare you to prove it. Submit it to BOSPOAT@producersguild.org. Before you submit, please review the contest rules at producersguild.org/bospoat. Because no matter how great your photo is, we have no desire to get sued over it.
