“LOST” Falls

“LOST” Falls

SPOILER ALERT! The “LOST” production crew returned to the North Shore of Oahu this afternoon, setting up near Waimea Falls mauka of Waimea Bay. Access to the park was shut down at 6 p.m., suggesting a night shoot among the thick trees and brush. And one intriguing prop was spotted...

‘LOST’ in Makiki (Updated)

‘LOST’ in Makiki (Updated)

SPOILER ALERT! (Updated 11:59 p.m. HST ) Just in time to kick off the weekend, the “LOST” production crew was spotted in Makiki… not two blocks from where my family and I used to live. They’ve commandeered a four-story apartment complex at 1818 Anapuni St. to film a scene with...

‘LOST’ Departure

‘LOST’ Departure

SPOILER ALERT! It was a long day on the job for the “LOST” crew… and for a bunch of lucky extras. One of them was disappointed to miss a party tonight, but only a little disappointed. So I gather from a cryptic e-mail forwarded this afternoon. Instead of a potluck...

‘LOST’ is Rolling

‘LOST’ is Rolling

SPOILER ALERT! Like the first blooms of spring, there’s always something heartwarming about spotting the first location shoot of a new season of “Lost.” Cameras started rolling this morning for Episode 5×01, “Because You Left,” in Kahala in East Honolulu. Shooting took place inside the private residence off Onaha Street...

LOST Wrap [Updated]

LOST Wrap [Updated]

Today is the last day of shooting for Season 4. And driving to work past Honolulu Harbor this morning, what should appear like a vision but the Freighter Kahana. She was docked at Kewalo Basin, where tell-tale trailers and crew trucks were gathering. But I had to do a double-take....

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 Party

LOST Party

Scaling down somewhat from the huge shoot at Kalaeloa on Wednesday, the “LOST” crew headed out to upscale East Honolulu today to film at a mansion in Kahala. Specifically, they returned to Hurley’s mansion as last seen in “Tricia Tanaka is Dead,” a $5.5 million property that’s actually on the...

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 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...

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...

LOST Time

LOST Time

For the “LOST” crew, Halloween wasn’t so much spooky as it was slippery. Rain washed away some of the momentum during the Chinatown/Koreatown location shoot, as on-again, off-again downpours stalled filming several times. The crew took it all in stride, though, standing at the ready with umbrellas and towels to...

LOST in Korea

LOST in Korea

I’m beginning to get the sense that the secret to LOST Spotting is being hungry in the morning. Looks like Seoul has sprouted up in Chinatown, right next door to Char Hung Sut and its world-famous manapua and dim sum. Yes, I think toys and stuffed animals play a part...

LOST in Kalihi

LOST in Kalihi

“LOST” set up shop just around the corner from one of my new favorite breakfast spots in Kalihi this morning, near the industrial arts campus of Honolulu Community College. Though I’m not entirely confident in my pre-caffeine vision, there were two striking women among those preparing for a busy day:...

LOST Toys

LOST Toys

Here’s a little “LOST” tidbit to kick off the week! This morning, the production crew descended upon old Kaimuki, taking over the “Toys N Joys” store on Waialae Ave. For geeks and nerds of a particular bent, the place is a piece of heaven, a Mecca of video games, anime,...
