Stephan Boeker

creative director, cinematographer

Bio / Artist Statement:

Yeah, I pretty much ruined dinner and landed in the parental doghouse with just a few words one night as a sophomoric teenager.

“Dad, did you ever consider that rules are meant to be broken?”

The blowback was so swift and so intense from my conservative German parents that the words have been part of my story ever since.

Professionally I have applied this mantra to weddings by working outside of the cookie-cutter norm.

I have also begun applying it to commercial and documentary work. Brands or non-profit organizations don’t need a human tripod or red-button-pusher, they need to move the business needle. The nexus of Pacific Story Tellers is to be the go-to Hawaii production team for brands seeking to leverage story to connect with their target audience.

director of photography

Bio / Artist Statement:

I’m one of those crazy passionate people. I find something I’m passionate about and my head just explodes with ideas, opportunities, and memories.
I have this idea that there is an insane amount of beauty in the world. Whether in the deep forest, the sandy beaches, or the people surrounding us. This idea that there is endless story and beauty every where you look.

there are defining moments we all experience. moments of love, challenge, resilience, ache, bravery, and many more. these moments are the resonant waves in part of the story surrounding them. waves that cause change.

That is what I pour into my films and any project I am lucky to be a part of.

Gianna Cullen

cinematographer, editor, colorist

Gianna Cullen grew up in Ohio until her passion for filmmaking brought her to NYC where she earned her BFA in Film from Pratt Institute. Since then, she has moved to Maui where she currently works as a camera operator on feature films, as well as an editor and colorist.

Gianna’s short film “Ten to Twenty” premiered at the Greenpoint Film Festival (2019), and her documentary “Beneath the Surface” was selected to screen as part of the 2021 Maui Film Festival.

As a female filmmaker, Gianna hopes to bring a unique perspective to the films she shoots and edits. She believes that you don’t always need the most expensive camera or the biggest crew, just an honest story that can connect with others.
