This has to happen! Way better than those other shows out there. And for those that don't get it, it has the added bonus of an after-show, where they paint the walls white again.

The first 6 pages of Spike's Breezeway were of us filming. Some of the pics Spike posted you can see the reflector on us
besides the shots that give it away with the michs and camera .
We actually built the core of it in less than 4 days and filmed too (which took as much or more time
than the build itself) .
Jeff Yarlett the camera man, producer, etc. did the filming, editing, etc. out of his own pocket for the pure love for tiki!
I'm trying to get him to release the original Building Paradise video he shot and edited of the build at Spikes pad.
He did a full 1/2 hour show. It's really cool! Here's the link for Spikes Breezeway.
http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?mode=viewtopic&topic=43239&forum=20&start=0

The video here is produced by Jeff Yarlett aka Media Melt Productions and Spectrum Productions both
out of Tampa Fl. It was re-named Tiki Takeover for a while when they were shopping it.

Aloha! BB

Thanks everyone for the positive responses. Jeff is gonna re edit the original one we shot at Spike's Breezeway and hopefully
we'll have it up here in the near future. Keep those hang loose fingers crossed that someone will see it and pick us up!
Aloha and MAhalo!

"Jeff is gonna re edit the original"
That is good, But dam, Do a new one at Bahooka To Be Reborn Clifton's!

Who says your show needs to be just peoples homes?
look at the show Tanked.
Might be hard to get before shots now though.

You should document your bigger builds just for history's sake anyway.
Good luck!

T-Skip, here are a few Before and Afters. Some commercial, some residential. Some big, some small.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10152327847341240.1073741838.679291239&type=1&l=6f1e26d6ef

Also you can look into the other "Albums" to see way more.

I'm thinking of getting a Go Pro and time lapse the Pacific Seas build.

Or, maybe old school pictures...

Do it all, the people that want to make your show a reality will pick and choose
what they think will sell.
Remember many times the things TC people like don't fly and make money.
Plus the stuff we hate translates into big bucks, Party City, Jimmy Buffet.
You need to find that in-between spot that all will like at least some and watch.

I have seen most of your work myself, you need to get
a way for others (read non TC) to see your work.

A good start may be a video bio of sorts starting with Ely and family ending with you
and your beginning on up to today.

Crazy Al is good for this too, Have met him a few times and he never has that
dismissive attitude many in the tiki world have, plus he is always "on"
