This probably will be the most successful model for resuming film/television production before a vaccine.

With enough $$$$ they could do a bubble.


On a Lynch production, those people don't get paid enough to agree to a bubble. It's different when people are making multimillion dollar salaries.


Well for one thing, in these sports bubbles there's a ton of people who are not multi million dollar athletes. There are television production crews who I imagine make salaries similar to film production crews. And that's not to mention food service workers, the hotel staff housing the sports staff, etc.

People are not monolithic. Some would agree, some would not. They'd just have to crew with people who agree. The fact of the matter is, if bubbles are the only way film productions resume, people could be faced with the choice of not working at all or working in a bubble.

Also the whole point of the bubble is safety, which should be an incentive to work in a bubble. In an out of control pandemic being inside one of these bubbles with regulation and testing is one of the safest places to be. Any film production that resumes before the pandemic is under control, if they are not taking extreme measures like an isolation bubble, is not going to be safe. So I'd question the logic of money being the only motivating factor people can have for working in a bubble.

I agree though that this will increase production costs and may price out a Lynch production. I'm not just talking about a Lynch production, but film and television production as a whole. It's definitely bad news for any lower budget productions, but that's how it goes... film and television production is hardly the only field that the pandemic has effected this way. Most people are being forced back to work in unsafe conditions. The main reason this is not likely to happen with film and television production is because of the high priced talent in front of the camera. Sad, but that's the way things are.

I don't recall jars featuring in other Lynch productions - maybe others remember...? But in this instance, it only makes me think of SCORCHED ENGINE OIL. Clearly Lynch knows the fans will associate it with that.

I've read in comments elsewhere that Lynch has used "jar" as metaphor for a place where ideas are being kept and grow. Also, a silly interpretation of the short film is to try and understand it backwards; it starts with the jar (ideas) , goes via some machinery (the filming/creative prosess) and ends with the product, in this case, wood 8)

Well, New Zealand has several new virus cases, and they're apparently reimposing lockdown in Auckland with some lighter restrictions for the rest of the country. This is after a run of 102 days with no known community spread.

I guess we'll find out if this will significantly impact any of the multiple major filming projects going on there.

I never seriously expected Lynch to film Twin Peaks or anything else in New Zealand, but this sort of underscores how tricky things will be generally, for any project anywhere, even in a best case scenario situation like NZ.

Here's hoping that our kiwi friends handily (re-)contain the problem and this is nothing more than a blip.

Here is a really fascinating look at what film and television will be dealing with for the foreseeable future. Better Call Saul features prominently.

Thanks Jasper - that was indeed a great read.

I know others have said this already, but Lynch is surely the best director in the world who could run with these conditions and make something genuinely thrilling.

One might even say that TMFAP rubbing his hands together in the red room predicted the current need to sanitise :D

As for what’s ahead in the “Twin Peaks” world for Lynch, who historically keeps his projects wrapped in impenetrable secrecy, MacLachlan said “anything is possible.” (A most Lynchian answer.) “To be honest, I would be the last person to know,” he added. “He kept it from me on ‘The Return’ for a long time and didn’t want anyone outside of himself and [co-creator] Mark Frost to know what was going on. At this point, he hasn’t discussed anything with me.”


I believe him.

What is everyone's take on the lottery ball thing that Lynch has been doing since the last 2 days? Will there be an announcement after all the numbers are out?

The numbers are never going to be “all out.” He picked 8 two days in a row. It’s the same ten balls every day, it’s not like he’s eliminating them.

I think it’s just a “lucky number of the day” type thing. It’s a fool’s errand to read “possible TP announcement” into everything the man does, especially in the midst of a health crisis when filming isn’t happening.

To be fair, thread title aside, krishnanspace didn't specifically mention Twin Peaks, only an announcement, and Lynch and Sabrina Sutherland did suggest that they might have something to tell us about soon.

I agree that the timing is odd, at least if it's meant to be a film project of any significant scale, but then again, they didn't mention a timeline.

Just to be clear, I don't expect Twin Peaks, though naturally I'd be extraordinarily pleased to get Twin Peaks.

What’s the status of the convention? I see that it’s scheduled for 10/30. Are they planning to hold it in person or virtually or what?
