Aaward-winning filmmaker, Jeff Orig, wrote, directed, edited, and produced his first feature film, Waikiki PD, which was just selected for the Chicago Comedy Film Festival.

This 100% Hawai’i-made film is a “mockumentary” in the style of The Office that chronicles the brave heroes of Waikiki’s Police Dept.
Waikiki PD is a semi-scripted motion picture in which some of Hawai’i’s best comedic improvisers, Jose Ver, Marni Ramirez, and Ryan Okinaka, collaborated in creating the characters and dialogue of the story.
