Hawaiki Cable in American Samoa

GCImagery was hired to produce an event video for the Hawaiki Cable landing in American Samoa. The Hawaiki cable is a new submarine cable linking Australia and New Zealand to Hawaii and mainland United States, which will help eliminate the distance between all Pacific communities and boost socio-economic development through the provision of broadband access.

With a design capacity of 43.8 Tbps, Hawaiki will be the highest cross-sectional capacity link between Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

The client wanted the video to showcase what the cable meant to the people of American Samoa. We traveled there for 8 days and interviewed many of the people involved including The Governor Lolo Matalasi Moliga.

We captured all the events leading up to the connection and shot beautiful imagery of the island to lay over the video and enhance the viewers experience. We added a powerful uplifting soundtrack to boost the emotion and brought it all together to produce a video that we are so proud of and that Hawaiki and ASTCA have embedded all over the world and received thousands of views.

GCImagery also shot the New Zealand and Australian events included in the landing of the cable.
