While everybody is still talking about what was said at the LOST panel, the New York times has found an interesting angle – the making of the panel. It’s a very interesting write up that certainly gives you an appreciation for the amount of work that went into staging the event.
To appreciate how important the annual pop-entertainment convention here has become to movie studios and television networks — and how much effort it takes to get noticed at it — consider the “Lost” presentation on Saturday in front of more than 6,500 people. That hourlong show, complete with scripted comedy routines and 13 glossy original videos, took a dozen people four months to produce. The budget for song rights, props and actor travel alone was $25,000.
