'Lost' Team Joins the Pencils2Moguls Campaign Amid Strike
December 3, 2007
The WGA writers' strike enters its fifth week today and there is no end in sight. We reported last week that Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar were using a phone call from Michael Rosenbaum as bait to get fans involved in United Hollywood's Pencils2Moguls campaign. Now, the Lost creators are getting involved. The Pencils2Moguls campaign aims to show the producers the amount of support writers have from the fans and irritate the producers in the process. If a fan wants to contribute, they head to the website (www.pencils2mediamoguls.com) where they can donate as many boxes of environmentally friendly pencils as they want. The pencils will then be sent to the heads of the six major media conglomerates. Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof are raffling off some extremely enticing prizes to Lost fans who participate.
When fans of Lost sign up at the Pencils2Moguls website and donate pencils, all they have to do is write “Lost” when asked what show they support. By doing so, they will enter themselves in a raffle. Every box of pencils donated equals one entry into the raffle. The winners will be drawn at random. Here are the prizes, as written in a MySpace note by Lost show runners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof:
GRAND PRIZE: A personal thank-you call from us (Carlton and Damon) AND Matthew Fox where we shall do our bestest to answer your questions about the show's mysteries AND a Season 3 DVD set.
FIRST PRIZE: A signed finale script by writers Damon and Carlton and a surprise cast member!
SECOND PRIZE: Signed Season 3 DVD Set (standard and blu-ray!) by the entire writing staff!
That first one is the big one. Donate some pencils, find out the mysteries of Lost. I'm not a big spoiler guy, so I don't think I'd want to know the real mysteries of Lost just yet (and I'm not sure they're really going to tell anyway), so I'd probably just ask them about the smoke monster or why Mr. Eko had to die.
