Haleakala 8K is the 12th film from the More Than Just Parks (MTJP) project. If you haven’t seen any of the previous films in the series, then here’s the lowdown. MTJP is a project started by brothers Will Pattiz and Jim Pattiz, founders of Sea Raven Media. The goal is simple but meaningful—to encourage more people to get out and experience what’s theirs. In order to achieve this goal, the MTJP team are on a monumental filming adventure, travelling across the entire US to capture 59 national parks in breathtaking fashion.
This time, Haleakalā National Park get’s the MTJP treatment. The resulting film is the culmination of multiple trips to the remote outer reaches of the island of Maui in the South Pacific. It features clips from the summit of Haleakalā volcano (known as the ‘House of the Sun’); rugged mountains; dense rainforests; hidden beaches; and, as the Pattiz brothers describe, the “last wild home to spectacular wildlife”.
