LOST footage Lost

Here’s another quirky story about ABCs hit TV show LOST. Apparently, canisters of film are still being sent back and forth to Burbank via commercial airline cargo shipping. I could have sworn they were shooting in digital HD. Some of these canisters were X-rayed by Airport TSA personnel despite big warning labels telling them not to. Oops. So now LOST gets to reshoot those scenes for the unnamed future episode. I guess that’s why you buy insurance.

I wonder how common of occurrence this is in the film industry. Kevin Spacey once had footage of his movie stolen from the Los Angeles Airport. You’d think there’s be a more secure way of doing this in the digital age.
