Hawaii Responds to "Lost" Noms

KGMB's Terry Hunter interviewed several folks from Hawaii's local film/TV industry yesterday about what they thought of "Lost"'s 12 Emmy nominations. Honolulu Film Commissioner Walea Constantinau said, "When you think of the outreach that the show makes for us in 182 different countries around the world, it's quite extraordinary the publicity that we're getting from that show." And Judy Drosd of the Department of Business and Economic Development stated that the purpose of tax incentives is to develop the local industry, not to line the pockets of Hollywood producers--that is, to "have a lot more people working in Hawaii."
