Kiku’s parents, Kimber and Scott, live on the farm. Her brother, Jeffrey, and sister-in-law, Liz, live just down the road.
“They were shooting in February during a beautiful, mild bloom. Spring starts early here,” Kiku said. “They saw that my brother and sister walked over almost every evening and we would sit outside on the porch. The crew loved seeing that, and they loved the idea that our family was just down the road.”
All three of the Green Planet crew members are parents. They said that is a lifestyle they’d want for their kids. “We told them it wasn’t anything special,” Kiku said. “When you live in the country, your neighbors are your actual family, so we get to hang out together all the time.”
