HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Short List is a TV project produced by Hawaii-based TalkStory Productions. The intention is to bring together the Hawaiian entertainment community to showcase their talents by creating high quality short films. The show's premise is an anthology series similar to the now classic Steven Spielberg series Amazing Stories. There are five unique stories by five different directors. Each 22 minute episode will feature a stand alone story, and not a continuing story line. The series will air a different genre each week. The episodes are 100% locally written, directed, and produced.
The most recent episode is called "Hotel St." A Honolulu police officer and his ex-wife work together to solve a missing person case, during which they uncover a series of interlocking crimes ranging from petty theft, stolen antiquities, and illegal marijuana research.
