While the world stopped, a passionate group of visionaries took action behind the scenes to keep Hawaii safe during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Caught Inside” is the untold story of how the pandemic affected our state and how this unique group of individuals, led by the National Kidney Foundation of Hawaii, took risks, and overcame the odds and adversity by quickly developing an innovative mobile lab testing program. It evolved into an expansive statewide model that helped Hawaii experience the lowest number of Covid-19 deaths in the nation.
NKHF approached GWPR to memorialize the COVID-19 Mobile Lab and bring further awareness to the Consortium’s efforts. GWPR teamed with local film veterans David Rosen and Dennis Mahaffay of Shooters Film Production to document the story, and partnered with Hawaii News Now for prime time broadcasts. Caught Inside now lives indefinitely on a HNN On Demand link. The film was met with rave reviews from local business and communities statewide.
