DR. HAWAII is a film project made by Rock Ross and Michael Rudnick in the early 1970s while both were students at the San Francisco Art Institute. It is a unique sampler of all the various cameras, lenses, film equipment, techniques, filmstocks, editing, lighting, A/B/C/D roll FX, tricks and gimmicks. These various disciplines were incorporated into the film as they were learned. The structure that all this hangs on is that of a man watching television and imagining he is the star of all the shows... also domestic tension raises the stress. There is no escape... or is there?
