Trinimon, over at Ukulele Underground, posted this video he made of Fred Kamaka Sr. during the Kamaka Factory tour.  What I loved most about it were the moments you could see the love and joy Fred has for the instruments, and the history of this fine company.

Enjoy!

Couple more videos.  The 1st one highlights the making of Kamka ukulele.  The second one is about some of their workers.  Kamaka in the 50’s began to hire deaf workers, and that video talks about that.
