Since people have enjoyed LOST: The Crash, I'm fixing up my edit of season 2 (along with some bits from season 1 I didn't use in The Crash) and plan to make it available soon. In the meantime, here's a trailer for LOST: The Swan:

Just an update. I've finished my polish of The Swan and now I'm working on making it available for anyone who's interested. It was definitely more challenging than the first season and it was running over 4 hours long for quite some time before I made some tough decisions to bring it down to 3:45. The resulting structure ended up feeling more episodic than The Crash and I even inserted title cards separating it into 4 chapters so it can be viewed either as a whole or in 4 more bite-size pieces. As I mentioned before, this edit includes an important Locke flashback that I cut from The Crash, knowing that it would find a home in The Swan.

I appreciate the positive reviews for The Crash. It seems like the only feedback most people had was I should include fewer flashbacks, which I took to heart when making my final polish on The Swan. Most of the cuts I was able to make from my 4+ hour cut were flashbacks and I think the pacing is significantly improved as a result.

With any luck I should have The Swan up on .info soon. Thanks for your interest.

Any plans for a version 2 of the crash with less flashbacks?

It was kinda nice to send the The Crash out into the world so I would stop tinkering with it, so further tinkering isn't likely. I personally like the flashbacks I included and feel they help flesh out the major characters, but I certainly understand if some have a preference for fewer of them. However, since a lot of that character work already exists in The Crash, it allowed me to take more liberties with cutting or minimizing additional flashbacks in The Swan.
