“Director’s Craft” on Michael Bay

{mosimage}Geoff Boucher of the LA Times comes again on the Maestro of Bay-os, Bay-hem, and Bay-splosions! This time, a bit of background on Michael Bay himself, and the events that around his film career, past and present. For astf, they got not just help from Zahi Hawass, secretary general of the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities, but also military helicopters help to Petra in Jordan, courtesy of "a Jordanian prince who loved Bay's first robot movie." Film students looking into the director's chair and megaphone should consider this from Michael: "One thing I can't stand about Hollywood is waste. I've gotten to be a very, very efficient shooter."

On Bay regarding the first film Transformers that was released in 2007: "So many aspects of it seemed silly, but there is so much wish fulfillment to it, the idea of having a giant robot hiding out in your backyard."

As to Tom Kenny's part, look for "some more boisterous tiny robots with loopy voices."
