LOST FOOTAGE LOST
From the Honolulu Advertiser:
Film from ABC’s hit show “Lost” was ruined when security employees at the Honolulu International Airport accidentally X-rayed the canisters despite warnings labels asking them not to.
The show’s crew had to reshoot the scenes because there were no copies.
“This is the first time anything like this has happened,” said state Film Commissioner Donne Dawson, adding that steps have been taken to prevent a repeat of the incident.
The loss will not affect the broadcast schedule for the popular show, according to co-executive producer Jean Higgins.
Higgins declined to say how much the gaffe cost ABC.
“That’s proprietary information between us and the insurance company,” she said. “We’ve already reshot. We are still on schedule.”
Producers still aren’t exactly sure how it all happened, what it means or how it will all end. Heh-heh. Get it?
