ABC’s LOST spent Saturday in Kakaako near downtown Honolulu to film a three-car Locke (Terry O’Quinn) oriented crash scene at South and Pohukaina streets which was closed to traffic and pedestrians most of the morning and afternoon…LOST Special Effects coordinator Archie Ahuna coordinated the crash and rigged the vehicles that included a Mercury Marquis, SUV, and and old Toyota Camry. Charlie Long’s Private Security team was out in force doing a yeoman job in keeping the curious public at bay and having to follow some production exec’s mandate to prevent photos from being taken despite photographers being on public property. (More about that in another column.)…Two special effects scenes were shot, including the crash and later a near roll over. Three Mercury Marquis were used including a rental which remained unscathed and two other used ones that were deliberately crashed in the stunt…In the scenes the cars had Oregon license plates…The production used three cameras to get the show - one of South street, on Pohukaina, and one on the 8th floor of the Circuit Court parking building. Lost top execs were out in force including producers Jack Bender and Jean Higgins…O’Quinn filmed some morning scenes but his stunt double took over for the crash…

Dream benefit for ‘Lost’ fans
A intimate crowd sees cast members do Shakespeare to raise money for HTY
Several "Lost" actors took a break from filming in the jungle to perform on stage in an intimate setting during a gala benefit for the Honolulu Theatre for Youth last weekend.
Michael Emerson (Ben), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) and Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond) volunteered to read several scenes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," bringing Shakespeare -- and the enthralled audience -- to life.
Roaring with laughter, guests savored the opportunity to watch actors in a television drama reveal their polished (and too often hidden) comedic skills for the benefit of the community.
