When the sea turtle

first meets the sea

Mar 2018|Los Cabos, México

Watching a baby sea turtle or a "hatchling" struggle out of the nest and make its way to the sea is an emotional experience. On a recent shoot in Los Cabos, Mexico, Cody Easterbrook participated in a release of 13 adorable hatchlings and says it is a memory that will stay with him forever.

The Sea of Cortez and Baja California peninsula are home to five species of sea turtles - all of which are endangered. Thanks to Marine Turtle conservation groups and other local grass root organizations, many including television personality, Cody Easterbrook, have come together to help and protect the sea turtles and release them into the wild and watch as they start their new life in the ocean!

Along the way these little guys faced some struggles. Everything from footprints in the sand to the crashing waves presented obstacles, though this gauntlet is important for their survival. 

Easterbrook is a staunch ocean defender and believes the release of baby turtle hatchlings to the ocean is unquestionably one of the most fascinating and enriching experiences one can ever experience.

Unquestionably

one of the most

fascinating

and enriching experiences

Easterbrook home destroyed by Hurricane Harvey

Sep 2017|Houston

 

With so many affected by recent disasters, it's inevitable that some hit close to home. When hurricane Harvey ravaged the Texas coast, the Easterbrook home was among those destroyed by the inundating flood waters. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, actor and television star, Cody Easterbrook returned to what was left of his families' home in Friendswood, TX. The harrowing scene was one that will stay with him forever.

 

Among the rubble Cody came across a happy smiling photo of his parents. "This happy memory seemed so out of place amid all the destruction," he conceded. "I'm just so thankful that this happy couple was safe!"

 

In the days following the disaster, Cody worked 12-14 hour days trying to salvage cherished keepsakes, rescue important documents from soggy clumps of paper while simultaneously mucking out and drying the house that had to be stripped down to studs with the help of tireless crews of volunteers.

"In the wake of a tragedy, heaven sends its finest angels," explained Cody. "They came and conquered the unthinkable task of literally carrying the heavy burden of recovering from Hurricane Harvey. My words cannot express the gratitude in my heart for what they've done for my family. Amid the chaos there were those who offered meals and rides, washed clothing, hauled soggy carpet and tore down wet drywall. To all the volunteers who gave so selflessly, thank you so very much."

Cody promised that his family will make this house a home again. To help in the effort to rebuild, follow the link below.

False Ad Premiere

Update

Jun 2017|Honolulu

 

It’s a surreal feeling watching yourself on the big screen. There's nothing natural about staring at your face expanded to vast proportions and hearing your voice echo through the theater. It’s weird. But thankfully, good filmmaking helps that feeling subside as I was quickly drawn into the story that I knew all too well. 

 

Yes, I had memorized my lines, and delivered them, take after take, as I acted out these scenes, but now I was witnessing it all with new eyes. The complete narrative had been carefully pieced together and I finally saw myself as the audience saw me. This was the private screening of the long awaited pilot entitled, “False Advertising.”

 

On a quiet evening this past weekend, a select group of actors, filmmakers and crew, along with family and friends, we all gathered into a spacious theater for the private invite-only screening. It was so interesting to actually hear the audience response and to see them pick-up on the subtle cues and nuances of the production. My character is a little rough around the edges and I even caught myself cringe at times watching my character navigate his circumstances. 

 

As the credits began to roll and the audience applauded their approval, I didn’t want it to end. I wanted the story to go on. We only filmed the pilot, just the first episode of many we hope. But it definitely left me wanting more. Many of those viewers expressed that same sentiment. 

 

The lights came up and my costar Jodie Kiyokawa and I were invited to the stage, along with our talented director, Nick Porreca, for the Q&A. We shared some insight behind the casting, the production process, and a bit of our behind-the-scenes perspective.

 

There were late night shoots, long days in a hot car shoots, and since my costar was 12 at the time, the use of snapchat played heavily in keeping us entertained between takes. It was a long road coming here, but after the many hours, and hard work, seeing the completed production on the big screen was indeed satisfying. Now, the producers will shop it around and one can only hope this pilot get picked up and we can tell the rest of the story.

Cody Easterbrook just wrapped on the 50 First Kisses, a Japanese remake of 50 First Dates that was filmed in Hawaii. In the Sony Pictures production, Cody reprises the role of '10 Second Tom' the patient who lost part of his brain in a hunting accident resulting in a short-term memory that comically only lasts about ten seconds.

Keeping in character, Cody kept his Japanese costars laughing on set, repeatedly introducing himself over and over again. "Hi, I'm Tom!" "Hi, I'm Tom!" "Hi, I'm Tom!" According to director, Yûichi Fukuda, it was this charisma and comedy that earned Easterbrook his role in the film.

Cody not only arrived at the audition in character and in wardrobe, but when he walked into the casting he headed right up to the director and producers and, extending his hand, exclaiming, "Hi! I'm Tom." After heading down the line introducing himself to everyone present, his memory reset and he started it all over again. The producers loved it and the role was his.

 

50 First Kisses opens in theaters in Japan, December 2017.

The Hawaii Film Collective has tapped actor Cody Easterbrook to help reimagine a scene from classic Hollywood cinema for their latest promotional shoot. HFC is a nonprofit, filmmakers collective, dedicated to encouraging, promoting and supporting independent film production in Hawaii. The reimagined scene places Cody into the directors chair quite literally, as he takes on the role of film director, Cecil B. De Mille in the classic film noir movie 'Sunset Avenue.' It is of course one of the most classic scenes of old Hollywood, the washed-up silent film star Norma teeters on the edge of madness as she descends the grand staircase with cameras rolling. She is ready for her close-up but is she ready to take direction? That is the question that plays out in this humorous parody starring Cody Easterbrook.

Art imitates life in Island Insurance Commercial

Feb 2017|Honolulu

 

Sometimes art imitates life as is the case with Cody Easterbrook's latest ad campaign for Island Insurance. The commercial features a world traveler whose awesome adventures around the globe are made possible because of the money he saves with Island Insurance. Cody is cast as the traveler and it isn't a stretch as he is indeed a world traveler in real life as well. Director Ryan Kawamoto joked, "This role was made for Cody."

This is Easterbrook's second appearance in an Island Insurance commercial. He previously portrayed an announcer in the boxing ring, but this time Cody returns as an adventurer. It's no secret, he's been around the world a few times so Easterbook was completely at ease frolicking with penguins, running with the bulls, riding a camel, rock climbing or even sticking his head in a lion's mouth - all thanks to production magic, of course. The Island Insurance Traveler spot featuring Cody Easterbrook is currently airing in the Hawaii market.
