Title: '7,000 Miles' Director Amy Glazer


  • Shot on location in Oahu and Molokai, Hawaii.
  • Features Hawaiian Local Musicians: Kaipo Asing and Bobby Ingano
  • Inspiration for the film comes from Alixzandra Dove's longtime admiration of her mother's passion for flying and travel. Her mother and Amelia Earhart share a birthday which is partly what connected Lexi to Amelia Earhart's story. Inspired by her pioneering spirit and love of flying, Lexi wondered what an alternate reality for Amelia Earhart might look like if she had survived.
  • The director, the cinematographer and Wendie Malick lived in Meli's house location during the shoot, which increased the love for the location and made it a home both on and off the screen. It also made it easy to shoot B roll any time of day.
  • The Camera Assistant climbed coconut trees every morning so that fresh coconut water could be added to morning smoothies.
  • Martinis were a popular end-of-day treat making the phrase martini shot quite literal.
