Hawaii Film Studio (Diamondhead Studio)

This soundstage is run by the State of Hawai'i. The other soundstage formerly used by Lost was located at the Old Xerox Building. The production offices (Grass Skirt Productions) also recently moved here from Dole Cannery Office Building in Iwilei, with the exception of the wardrobe department. The Studio was used for filming of Season's 2-6.

The Hawaii Film Studio is closed to the public. Do not disturb!

UPDATE: Currently (as of Jan 2008), many of the crew trailers and prop vehicles previously stored at the Iwilei lot are now stored at the Hawaii Film Studio, some of which may be visible from the street.

See also Props Storage.

Notes


The Hawaii Film Studio is closed to the public. Do not disturb!

Scenes of Lost's Hatch interior are filmed at Hawai'i Film Studio.

Before being used for the filmingn of Lost, the Hawaii Film Studio has also been used by other well-known television shows such as Hawai'i Five-O and Magnum, P.I.
The studio's 16,500 sq. ft air-conditioned soundstage was built in 1994. It also has a defunct 94,000-gallon filming tank.

Currently (as of Jan 2008), many of the crew trailers and prop vehicles previously stored at the Iwilei lot were stored at the Hawaii Film Studio, some of which may be visible from the street. These include the "DHARMA" vans, police cars, cab cars, and possibly the mysterious gold Pontiac. Thank you to Kos Hummer Tours for these photos, and thank you to numerous readers who deluged us with emails that the vehicles had been moved here (probably due to the current filming stoppage).

As of April 2008, these vehicles were no longer at the film studio parking lot, and were spotted back at their normal location at the Iwilei storage lot.
