Dharma Special Access - Part 9

I know.

Episodes 1 and 2 of the new fifth season of Lost have already aired in the US, so if you’ve seen them then you’re probably checking Lost sites to read about those rather than this. And if you live outside the US then you are probably keeping a low online profile to avoid the episodes being spoiled before you get to see them, either by downloading or waiting for the official air date in your country.

I know.

I know that, at this time, a Dharma Special Access post isn’t what you’re crying out for. But what am I to do? I am duty-bound to post these things here for those people that don’t happen to be on the mailing list, and also because I said that’s what I would do when I began this thing. And, hey, look on the bright side, there’s at least one partially interesting piece of information contained within! See if you can spot it. . .

Dear fellow Dharma guests,

With the show’s imminent launch, it’s been very busy here in the LOST offices. Last week we attended the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour. We did a lot of interviews there, which you’ll probably see this week, and we showed them episode three. (They’d already seen episodes one and two via ABC.)

We are also working on breaking the last five episodes, writing episodes twelve and thirteen, production is shooting eleven, we’re editing seven, eight, nine and ten, and on the post end of things we are finishing the CG work, ADR, sound and mixing on episodes four, five and six.

So this is a round-about way of saying we didn’t have a chance to prepare a video for you this week. We hope you’ll understand. However, we will be back. In fact, it’s our hope to fire off to you guys a DSA video update about once a month as the season progresses.

We really appreciate your continued support, and we hope you enjoy the premiere.

With gratitude,

Damon and Carlton

Hm? What’s that? What was the “partially interesting” information, you ask? Well, the bit about them sending out a DSA mail once a month. That sounds like a fine kind of delivery timescale for me to both manage, and happily receive like a surprise gift through the post during the hectic mayhem of Season 5.

Anyway. That’s it. Job done. Next time you hear from me I’ll have seen the latest episodes and I can discuss those!
