LOST Notes: Ben and Penny

A couple of tidbits to start the week. First, local “LOST” fans may want to make their way down to the Outrigger Waikiki Hotel tonight for the taping of the “NightTime with Andy Bumatai” show. Tonight’s star guest is Michael Emerson, a.k.a. Benjamin Linus. Head down to the S.O.S. Showroom...

LOST Adrift [Updated]

LOST Adrift [Updated]

SPOILER ALERT! As we draw nearer to the Season 4 finale, the “LOST” production crew is bringing the story ever closer to the pivotal moment when the Oceanic Six get off the island. To tell that story, they headed way out to Wai’anae, the arid, rural west coast of O’ahu....

LOST at Home

LOST at Home

SPOILER ALERT! It was a big day for “LOST.” A week after a big shoot in Kaimuki, the crew moved to an even bigger stage on the other end of the island. A huge crowd of extras reported to the old Barbers Point Naval Air Station in Kalaeloa, taking over...

LOST on Saturday

LOST on Saturday

You know it’s crunch time for the “LOST” production crew when the work week stretches to six days. My friend Ian Kitajima stumbled across the production crew at the First Hawaiian Center in downtown Honolulu on Saturday. I had to wait until this morning to see if another friend who...

LOST in Mourning [Updated]

LOST in Mourning [Updated]

“LOST” landed in Kaimuki this morning, at St. Patrick Catholic Church on Waialae Avenue. The parking lot was staged with shiny BMWs and Mercedes (and a couple of black stretch limousines) with California plates. And as an unusually large number of extras arrived, all dressed in black, it became clear...

LOST Rolling Along

LOST Rolling Along

SPOILER ALERT! It’s been a busy week for the “LOST” production team, and with five episodes to produce in a little over a month, that’s hardly surprising. We’re deep into the production of Episode 4×11, which is apparently Locke-centric, and “LOST” crews have been spotted all over the island working...

LOST Connection

LOST Connection

SPOILER ALERT! “LOST” found its way deep in the forest above Pearl City today at the old Waimano Home complex. The area is known today mostly for great ridge and valley hiking, and the drab buildings — formerly a mental institution — now house offices for the state’s public safety...

LOST Hospital

LOST Hospital

SPOILER ALERT! I know that I’m fortunate to be a “LOST” fan living in Honolulu, able to watch the cast and crew behind the fantastic ABC series right here in my proverbial backyard. But sometimes, even travelers from far off places have better luck than I do in getting close...

LOST at Santa Rosa

LOST at Santa Rosa

SPOILER ALERT! “LOST” returned to the Windward Community College campus in Kaneohe today to film another scene at the “Santa Rosa Mental Institute.” A sign was set up in back, fronting a sometimes soccer field, and Jack’s old pickup truck was parked nearby. Filming took place inside Hale Kuhina, the...

LOST Extra

LOST Extra

I might have been able to snap some photos of the elaborate Iraq city set that “LOST” built at Honolulu Community College last week, but Rachelle Farmer of “The Farmer Files” blog got right into the middle of the action. After being jealous of other friends who’d worked as extras...

LOST in the Middle East [Updated]

Though “LOST” production started in earnest on Monday, March 10, work was largely limited to the Hawaii Film Studio on Diamond Head. Today, however, substantial construction work was coming together in urban Honolulu for a two-day location shoot beginning tomorrow. The crew has been building a dusty, rubble-strewn Middle Eastern...

LOST Rolling Again

LOST Rolling Again

Hawaii-based production of ABC’s hit television series “LOST” resumed in earnest today, ending three uncertain months washed out by the WGA writers’ strike. Cast and crew were working before dawn, and the Hawaii Film Studio lot on the slopes of Diamond Head was buzzing all day. There are two new...

Congratulations two times over for KITV news anchor and reporter Jill Kuramoto, who this week saw her national television debut on ABC’s “LOST,” and announced that she’s pregnant with her first child, a son, due in April.

UPDATED: LOST Production Still Stalled

UPDATED: LOST Production Still Stalled

The writers strike may not officially be over, but I’m thrilled to report firsthand that “LOST” was filming today in Kahala. I was so stunned, I had to ask three people to make sure it wasn’t just a local car commercial. If true, it’s the best news to come out...

Writers Strike Over?

Writers Strike Over?

Technology journalist Xeni Jardin posted a Twitter update via SMS minutes ago that couldn’t be simpler: “The strike is over!” It’s the first affirmative declaration I’ve seen since the Writers Guilde of America strike began, and it comes from a reputable source. Of course, the trade off to the instantaneous...

Planet Hollywood Gets ‘LOST’

The bad news? The annual “Sunset on the Beach” advance screening of the “LOST” season premiere has been canceled this year due to the ongoing writers’ strike. The good news? The folks at Planet Hollywood in Waikiki (and their friends at Infinite Productions) have stepped up to give “LOST” fans...

The “LOST” Beach Premiere is still on canceled, and has been moved back a week to Jan. 26, 2008, still allowing local fans an early look at the Season 4 premiere. After ABC announced last week that “LOST” would return to its primetime schedule on Thursday nights beginning Jan. 31,...

Another Taste of NYC

Another Taste of NYC

SPOILER ALERT! Although “LOST” production has essentially wrapped for the year, cameras are still rolling here and there for mobisodes, pick-ups and reshoots. Last night, my friend Ian reported seeing them setting up downtown. Christmas lights and a New York subway sign were among the props spotted. I wasn’t able...

LOST in the Big Apple

LOST in the Big Apple

SPOILER ALERT! From Fiji to New York City, it’s been a busy week for “LOST.” The production returned to Chapin Lane (which previously played Bangkok in a Jack flashback) and the area around Mark’s Garage to recreate the Big Apple. Streets were lit up with the Christmas spirit, and people...

LOST in Fiji

LOST in Fiji

It may be a holiday for some people, but “LOST” was hard at work today bringing the South Pacific to Honolulu. Kewalo Basin, the small commercial harbor in Kaka’ako, was transformed into the Port of Suva, Fiji’s largest port and gateway to its capital city. It was hard to miss...
