Welcome to Hana Mana Productions!!!

Aloha!  Thank you for visiting!

If you’re looking for Production Management, Event Coordination, Technical Direction, Stage Management or a Show Caller for your Corporate Conference, Incentive Program or Trade Show – look no further…

My name is Dave Hakes and I’ve been a Freelance Production Manager, Event Coordinator, Technical Director, Stage Manager, Show Caller, Cameraman, Lighting Designer, A2, Graphics Op, Spot Op and Network Specialist in Hawaii since 1993.  I know every venue like the back of my hand;  I know who has what gear and the condition/price of it;  I know who you want Op’ing your specific show in the various show positions…
