Production and Consulting Services

Have you ever dreamed of making a movie?

Koa Aloha Media Would like to make that dream a reality.

If you would like to be in the business of movie making or looking to produce your own movie, we can guide you through all stages.  Whether you are starting or finishing, we can assist.

Regardless of what stage you are at in the production process, we are happy to listen. We have helped on many projects throughout the years and our glad to offer services in any of the areas noted below.

NOTE: We do not purchase screenplays or accept unsolicited submissions.  

We can work with most budgets and we will work with you to help guide or produce your movie to be on track for the best possible distribution possible for your project. We can guide you through the tangled web of film festival circuits as well as help you target your project for specific outlets such as Amazon, iTunes, Netflix and other VOD, cable and satellite outlets.

We offer the following services:

Consultation

CONSULTATION: Start simple. Come up with a well-laid out plan. Whether you are working with a small budget or a large budget, we can help you formulate a plan to produce your movie.

We specialize in working with independent, non-studio feature films. We are always happy to have a conversation to see how we might be able to work together.

Contact us for more information.

Pre-Production

PRE-PRODUCTION: All stages from scriptwriting, to location scouting to casting/crewing and beyond. This is where experience really comes into play.

We can help with all stages of pre-production including budget mapping, screenwriting, casting, crewing, pre-planning, location scouting and more.  A movie's final quality can often be seen by the detail given during the early stages.

Contact us for more information.

Production

PRODUCTION: We can guide through all stages of production as well, whatever the need. We can even serve as the production company if that will be the most successful method of getting your project made.

We can make sure your project is professionally produced and ready for the post-production.

Post-Production

POST-PRODUCTION: From editing to effects to audio to foley to ADR, we’re here to help ... and finish!

This is often the area most overlooked by independent filmmakers. They put all of the consideration into producing the first two-thirds of the process but overlook what can actually be the make or break aspect of an indie film. We can help with editing, visual effects and all elements of sound design.

Contact us for more information.

Crowd-Funding

Crowd-Funding: We are happy to help with the ins and outs of crowdfunding too. However, we do not recommend going into a project if its entire success is based on the budget you anticipate from crowdfunding.

Distribution & Marketing

DISTRIBUTION/MARKETING: Get that movie seen! That is the ultimate goal, correct?

There are lots of ways to get a movie seen -- from festivals to VOD to traditional distribution. We have had experience with all aspects and we can help guide you in the direction which is best for your movie.

Past Projects

Koa Aloha Media owner, B. Luciano Barsuglia, has been working in the industry in a variety of roles since the '90s.

He started off as a camera operator and editor at a production/distribution facility working on more than 50 nationally televised infomercials.  He then worked out a film finishing house in Los Angeles, directly working with the majors, including MGM/UA, Buena Vista, and Sony Classics.

In 2002, Barsuglia started his own company, spawning the long-running Huntington Beach Film Festival (formerly the SoCal  Independent Film festival) as well as INFLUX Magazine (focusing on entertainment with over a million hits a month), and, of course, production.

Barsuglia has directly overseen the start to finish of five feature films, worked with Oscar-winning actors, and worked in a variety of roles on many, many other projects.

We recently completed post-production on Clinton Road (with Ice-T, Eric Roberts, Vincent Pastore and Richard Grieco). For this project, we did the complete film editing, visual effect creation and editing, complete sound post production (foley, sound fx, dialogue and musical score).
