Default Re: "Lost" Season 3 News & Sightings

I went down to see the "LOST" shoot that Mick mentioned, and of course collected some photos (uploading as I type). Very cool, from the Underground entrance to the fake trees to the newsstand to the red phone booth making yet another appearance... but I think the "Widmore Industries" sign will be the prop to get most conspiracy theorists excited. Present day, perhaps?

Interestingly, while they were setting up there on Fort Street, there was an active shoot taking place two blocks away, at 1 N. King Street (adjacent to the McClain's Auctions space). It was an interior scene, with extras in businesswear passing the windows along with regular downtown Honolulu traffic. Couldn't see much detail, perhaps a middle-eastern or ethnic restaurant of some kind. I get the feeling this shoot was not London, but I guess we might have to wait 'til late February to know for sure!

Finally, I might as well mention, my dad works in Aliiolani Hale (the Hawaii State Supreme Court building across from Iolani Palace), and "LOST" was apparently filming there over the weekend. Interior, hallway and possibly grand staircase. Dan Seto blogged it, too. Neither are "LOST" fans, though, so they wouldn't know the actors/characters if they saw them.

I saw some of the setup for a Lost shoot in Sherwood Forest (= Waimanalo State Recreation Area) yesterday (Sunday 11/5) and today (Monday). They built a little hut on stilts on the beach and decorated a public restroom to conceal its true nature. For whatever interest it might have.

It seems to me it's a heckuva risk taking this show off till February. I wonder how many viewers they expect to lose?

Here's a complaint about the show's "meandering" from New York magazine, along with a suggestion for limited-run TV. In "Lost's" case that would be two years, they propose. 48 interwoven episodes and done.

I'm from Australia and will be in Oahu from December 29 to January 5.

If anyone can help me with the following questions that would be awesome!

Does anyone have any concrete info on Season3 filming dates??

I would be assuming they wouldnt be working over New Years but im hopeful they may be back at work on the 3rd or 4th. If anyone could help me out that would be awesome!

Do the actors work out at Golds Gym Honolulu?

If I was to make the effort to visit one or two locations where Lost has been filmed in the past, what would they be??

Cheers

We just got back from Oahu, and we ran into the new Brazilian dude "Paulo" surfing at the Banzai Pipeline on the North Shore. They are also filming 3rd season scenes at Malaekahane State Park (north shore) and we got to see Sawyer and Kate out there as well. The Security is really good about fans meandering about. If you continue around the north shore heading east, you will see the dock from the end of Season 2. Its a small island so they seem to be filming everywhere.....

That was an awesome location shoot. Whodathunk that the same, occasionally maligned pedestrian mall in downtown Honolulu could play central London one week, and then serve as Bangkok, Thailand, the next? And what really boggles the mind is that they did all that work -- two days of setup, hundreds of people on the payroll -- for what may be 20 seconds of final footage. If they use it at all. Click below for my photoset from "Thailand" (it looked incredible all lit up):



And check the "Jay and Jack" podcast for their latest video release. I filed a "Lost Filming Update" segment for them which features scenes from the medical school shoot last month, clips from the London shoot last week, and video from the great Thailand set, too.

Lots of filming activity on the "other side" now. A bit harder for me to get to than downtown!

Always a gentleman
Michael Emerson reflects on his new fame, fortune and future on "Lost"
Quote:
In a wide-ranging interview that felt more like an animated lunch with an old friend, the youthful-looking 52-year-old chatted about William Shakespeare, the art of acting, public attention and how theater prepared him for his role as Benjamin Linus/Henry Gale, the enigmatic leader of the Others on the Hawaii-filmed hit ABC television series.

"The acting I find a breeze; it's the publicity that I find challenging," said Emerson. "On the stage you live large, and nobody knows you when you leave the theater. You have a sort of personal anonymity and a much thicker layer of disguise. When you're in close-up on TV, it's as if you and the viewer are breathing the same air. That's a kind of intimacy. It think it's a false intimacy, but it is intimate. I just haven't adjusted to it."

ABC moves 'Lost' out of 'Idol's' Way
Quote:
ABC is reshuffling its Wednesday lineup, launching a two-hour comedy block and moving the hit drama "Lost" to 10 p.m. With the shift from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. when "Lost" returns with all-original episodes February 7, the Emmy-winning drama will no longer face the "American Idol" results show.
'Criminal Minds' Steals 'Lost's' Thunder
Quote:
CBS's "Criminal Minds" last week scored its biggest audience ever -- nearly 18 million viewers -- and this past Monday was rewarded with this season's post-Super Bowl time slot. The next day, ABC announced that "Lost," which is off until February, would not return to the Wednesday time slot it has shared with "Criminal Minds" -- also the slot of upcoming "American Idol" on Fox.

Just wondering for those Lost previews airing during the series Day Break, do we discuss them here on this thread or the "Lost" Season 3 thread?

If it hasn't aired as a full episode, it's all previews, spoilers, and extras, so I think this "backchannel" thread is where it belongs. The regular "Season 3" thread should be kept "canon" -- officially and completely aired.

I watched the first couple of "Day Break" extras, but haven't checked for them in a while (even though they're helpfully archived all over YouTube). Out of context, I don't know what they add, and frankly I get more enjoyment from keeping an eye out for them around town.

Up until this week's all the preview has been taking place at the beach where the mid-section of the plane landed. Tonight however was different:

It was Jack in the bear cage and Cindy the flight attendant who disappeared last season is on the outside of the cage.

Default Omega Station?

Anybody hear about the "Lost" crew filming at the old Coast Guard Omega Station in the back of Haiku Valley in Kaneohe? For about the last week and a half, while driving to work on H3 early in the morning, there are these huge flood lights, lighting up the old Coast Guard Omega Station. I've also seen the white production trucks down there. Any insight?

Well! That's a new one to me! Do tell, if anything else surfaces. I imagine the location isn't particularly conducive to looky-loos, and the lights seem to imply evening shooting. A bit of a reach for this "LOST" stalker!

I'd gotten a tickler that they'd be on the Windward side this week, female "original recipe" castmember flashback, medical scenario... but nothing quite so dramatic sounding as the Omega Station. It's a very ominous, imposing facility... and thus perfect for "LOST."

That Omega station sounds like a perfect Dharma Institute kind of facility. Mysterious, strange and very out of the way.... even in real life!

It's also something and someplace The Others would probably command. Will be interesting to see how it all fits into the story.

It would be amazing if they could somehow fit the Stairway to Heaven into the storyline. But alas, it would be very difficult technically, and probably even more difficult legally.

"LOST" this week filmed at Kahuku Hospital. Apparently, it was an expressed hope that the compensated, multi-day use of the facility (and various repairs and improvements that went with it) would assist in the hospital's struggle to survive. It continues the show's "good corporate citizen" reputation of always leaving a place in better shape than they found it.

On a lighter note, have y'all seen this fun bit of animation, a riff on "LOST" set to a Weird Al Yankovic medley? Great for this thread, and this one too!

Question When does filming end for Season 3?

I am so thrilled I found this website! My husband and I are headed back to Oahu for 8 days at the end of March/1st week in April. We were there on vacation in April of 2005 and I forgot how much I missed being there (I grew up on Schofield Barracks in the late 70's).

I was curious to know if filming will be finished by the end of March/beginning of April. Even if we didn't see any cast members, me being the LOST junkie I am would be thrilled to see a bunch of White Trailer Trucks and see them setting up for filming. we've rented a condo on the Windward side of the Island and I know we'll be all over the island during our stay.

I am just so excited to go back and be surrounded by such beautiful people. It was my husband's first time to Hawaii and he said it felt like he was in another country and not part of the US. I guess we are just so used to the rude people where we live in Florida, that it was a nice change of pace!

Angry Re: "Lost" Season 3 News & Sightings

Absolutely unbelievable that the Advertiser would post Evangeline's home address! And not just once (the initial "breaking news" item) but TWICE (an updated item).

Here's an update. No one was hurt but the house was a complete loss.

And Likanui -- I guess it doesn't matter now that the world knows where Evangeline's house is, because she sure isn't going to be living there any more.

Default Re: "Lost" Season 3 News & Sightings

The home addresses of most of the actors are fairly well known, in some circles, and probably findable by anyone who really wants them... but I'd definitely have thought twice about publishing a full street address for a celebrity in a major metro newspaper. It is true that Evangeline probably won't be residing there any longer, but still... could they have known that when posting the "breaking" item? Why did Evangeline's street address get put right out there, but not Josh Holloway's when he and his family were robbed at gunpoint?

Of course, the second update from the Advertiser does include a couple of other tidbits of interest to local fans, including the fact that they were filming in Waialua this morning, and that shooting breaks for the holidays tomorrow.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought in the case of major fire's the addresses are almost always displayed regardless if it's the home of a famous person or not. I thought this is to inform people who might be out of town if they are reading a newspaper, internet, etc. to know that there was a fire quite possibly next door to their house. It seems everytime a fire is reported or logged in the paper the address is identified. Could this also be a legal reference for insurance purposes, I don't know all the reasons why to be honest.

I do see the sensationalism angle the paper can get out of reporting this story.

I know a close friend of Evangeline, so I'll probably be talking to them to see how things are going. Terrible incident, glad nobody was hurt.
