Lost on Location

May 2005
Mix;May2005, Vol. 29 Issue 6, p86
The article presents information about the shooting of the television show "Lost." The first weeks of shooting were on jungle sets. The crew--Joe Michalsky, Chris Wietking--and the director stepped out of the van into pouring rain and knee-deep mud. They had to get gear out of the trucks and down into a ravine below the roads where they shot big chase scenes with unseen monster, along with interiors and exteriors of the plane's cockpit. The script called for pouring rain, so on top of the natural jungle rain, the special effects teams ran arrays of water towers and fire hoses as soon as J.J. Abrams called "Action!"
