Established in 2013, Small Hour Films is a collaboration between the two of us, Marlene Nishime and Jonah Okano.  We are-- Best friends, partners in crime, and passionate filmmakers who love to tell stories that are important to us.  We met in 2009 in film school, worked together through years of stressful projects and sleepless nights, and somehow managed to get along through all of it. 

Small Hour Films is our latest creative endeavor.  We create wedding films, corporate videos and commercials, music videos, and sometimes we even get to work on our own personal narrative work.  No matter what our outlet, we care tremendously about our work and about the people we work with.      

Even beyond our work, there are so many other things that make us who we are. We are animal lovers, movie binge watchers, music seekers, and above all we are big dreamers.  We have high hopes for our little company and are excited to see what the future holds for us. 

Small Hour Films is currently based on the island of Oahu, but we love to travel and experience new places.  If you have any questions at all about our services please feel free to contact us at any time.  We look forward to meeting you!

Your friends, Marlene and Jonah
