Damon says they decided on the ending between Seasons 1 and 2

Here’s the first video clip from the LOST event at the Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF) on October 17, 2009.

In the clip, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse talk about the people who know how the show ends (mostly just the writers); how J.J. Abrams enjoys watching the show now as a fan; how they maintain secrecy; and whether the show is going to end in the place they always thought it would, or if it has evolved into something they hadn’t foreseen when the show first launched.

On that last question, Damon said that the ending they are using is the one they had decided on after Season 1.

We’ve always had a plan, but like in life, anyone who has a plan has to presuppose the plan is going to actually work. We feel that one place that we’ve been very good is that we try to be fans of the show that we’re writing. And sometimes our plans don’t work. When it’s not working, we have to figure out a way to either change the plan or amend the plan.

But that being said, for the last four or five years, pretty much between Seasons 1 and Seasons 2, we began to talk about how the show was going to end if they allowed us to end it. And right now, that’s the ending that we are doing, and I can’t imagine anything that would change our mind. We’re so committed in terms of the story-telling to achieving that end. So yes, though the route that we took to get there was wildly different from anything that we could have imagined, the destination is the same.

Carlton Cuse tweeted that the special guests have been confirmed:

Michael Emerson (Ben), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Yunjin Kim (Sun), and Terry O’Quinn (Locke) will all be joining Darlton (Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse) in a panel at the Hawaii International Film Festival on Saturday, October 17.

That should be quite a show! I’m looking forward to seeing the video on YouTube (hopefully, some nice person will post it).

Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin on LOST, stars in this trailer for the 2009 Hawaii International Film Festival (HIFF), playing a writer who finds inspiration in an ink blot:

The Festival will have a special celebration of LOST on October 17, 2009, with master-class seminars during the day with producers Jean Higgens and Jack Bender, and with some of the show’s production, prop, and costume designers. In the evening, there will be a panel discussion featuring Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse with “special guest appearances from cast and crew members.”
