I think Bay's handling is pretty darn solid. His use of CG doesn't come off cartoony at all, and I'm all for more realistic effects in movies.

Re: Michael Bay Takes Over Digital Domain in 3D

Postby TheButcher on Thu Nov 18, 2010 5:40 pm

From Variety:
Digital Domain buys 3D company - Conversion firm In-Three will relocate to DD's Florida headquarters
David S. Cohen wrote:Digital Domain Holdings, the parent company of visual effects studio Digital Domain, has acquired 3D conversion company In-Three.

In-Three becomes a sister company of Digital Domain, and will move its production facilities from Thousand Oaks, Calif. to Port St. Lucie, Fla., where Digital Domain Holdings, has its HQ. Move is expected within weeks.

A small team from In-Three will shift to Los Angeles, where it will work on business development and work with clients.

Digital Domain will get access to In-Three's conversion technology, which it dubbed "dimensionalization."

"Pretty much all the movies we're working on have a stereo aspect," Digital Domain CEO Cliff Plumer told Variety, "Our preference still is shooting in stereo, if you can. But a lot of films are still shot flat and the post schedules are getting much tighter, which forces visual effects companies and stereo companies to work together."

Both Plumer and In-Three CEO Neil Feldman cited the concept of "digital production," including both visual effects and 3D conversion, as a central to the union of the two companies.

"It's a no-brainer to us to want to be affiliated with a high-end vfx expert company so we can pool our resources and do something beyond what's been done before," said Feldman. "We've seen low-end conversions, and that's not what we want to do. We're trying to maintain the highest quality."

In-Three will remain a separate company and will continue to convert library titles or current pics even when Digital Domain is not involved.

Don’t Expect Michael Bay to Direct a Marvel Sequel
Haleigh Foutch wrote:It’s not that Bay isn’t a fan, “I really liked Civil War. I like a lot of the Marvel movies,” he told the journalists on set. “When I saw Iron Man, it broke a lot of new ground for me, and it was a great character. Funny, witty, I liked that about it.” Though he does “wonder where [superhero movies] are going to go,” noting that Batman v Superman and Captain America: Civil War as having “almost the same setup.”

The bigger problem is that Bay doesn’t want to come into a movie universe that’s already fully formed. He wants to create the world himself. And that pretty much rules out joining a shared universe. “I wouldn’t want to, it’s not my thing, it’s just not my gig,” Bay explained.

“I don’t ever wanna take someone like a third of something or second of something. I gotta do my own thing,” Bay continued, “’cause the most fun is when a real director creates the world. You know, you talk to Ridley Scott, one our favorite things to do is to create the world. Steven Spielberg, create the world. That is what it’s about.” Adding, “If I were to do something I would have to redo it my way.”

Say what you will about the quality of Michael Bay’s movies, the practical effects he pulls off on set are extremely impressive.


COLLIDER DECEMBER 4, 2013:
Dave Trumbore wrote:The human element is all well and good, but Bay is known more for his explosions than his emotions. In a digital age, Bay is all about the practical effects.

“Yeah baby, It’s kind of a dying art in Hollywood – nobody does anything for real. John’s one of the grand masters of physical effects. He can’t hear right because he’s done so many explosions. We still hold the Guinness World Record for Pearl Harbor: John rigged 350 bombs in seven seconds. Nowadays I think you would fake a lot of it.”

INTERVIEW: MICHAEL BAY ON 'BAD BOYS 3' AND WHAT COMES AFTER 'TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT'
ERIK DAVIS wrote:He's been one of the most aggressively entertaining filmmakers of the past two decades, and he's proud of it. In America, his explosive, run-and-gun style of filmmaking has its own slang term, "Bayhem," and in China his nickname is "BombBay." He's tough, cocky, confident and at times controversial. He's an enormous animal lover (his beloved dog Bonecrusher passed away while filming the latest Transformers movie), and when you talk to him about the things that are most important to him as a filmmaker, the one word that typically escapes his mouth first is "audience."

It's all about the audience to Michael Bay. Not just the American audience, but also the international audience. Before bringing his fifth Transformers installment, The Last Knight, to America, he went to China, where they absolutely adore him and Optimus Prime, who's more popular there than he is stateside. For Bay, entertaining a global audience has been his primary concern going all the way back to 1995's Bad Boys, and that drive continues in 2017 -- albeit with way bigger budgets -- as Bay prepares to release his last Transformers movie.

Transformers: The Last Knight (in theaters June 21) is being billed as the "final chapter," and that's probably most evident in the fact that it's Bay's final chapter as director. With The Last Knight he becomes the rare major filmmaker to helm five parts of the same series, and he's proud of that accomplishment.

In an extensive interview with Fandango, in which Bay spoke at length about his past, present and future, we poked through his macho gym-rat persona to reveal a guy who's incredibly passionate about preserving and evolving the big-screen experience while continuing to deliver the adrenaline-induced thrills and chills audiences have come to expect from his style of filmmaking.

Our interview will be broken out into three parts: past, present and future. And since we began our conversation by talking about him stepping away from Transformers and moving on to other things, here is where we'll kick it off...

"These movies that I've done, they are massive movies. They take a lot out of you," Bay said when we asked if he was finally -- for real, this time -- stepping away from the Transformers franchise. "I've done it enough, and I've had a great time doing it. I'm going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you're ahead, you know. I think I've had a good run, and I've got a lot of other movies I want to do."

So what are those movies, exactly? To get an idea of where Bay's head is at, all you have to do is look at the two movies he made in between his five Transformers installments, Pain & Gain and 13 Hours. One was a smaller, more character-driven crime dramedy, while the other was a more action-driven military drama based on real-life events.

For Bay, he'd like to continue mixing it up like that.

"I just read a very bloody hit man movie that was a page turner. That seems like a fun one to do," he said. "I love doing 13 Hours, I love doing Pain & Gain -- I think it'll be something more serious and more adult, I guess."

What about stars he'd like to work with?


Maybe it's because The Mummy just hit theaters, but there's something about the way Tom Cruise puts so much into his own stunt work that lends itself to the type of movies Michael Bay makes.

So we asked Bay why he's never worked with Cruise, and surprisingly we learned they've spoken about it. Funnily enough, the one thing keeping these two stunt-driven powerhouses from working together are, well, the stunts themselves.

"We've talked about," Bay said. "But I told Tom to his face... I said, 'Tom, I know you rehearse your stunts over and over, but I like sloppy stunts.' So that would be the rub working with us -- I wouldn't let him rehearse as much. I like my stunts to be dirty and messy, and not so... [Bay sings the Mission: Impossible theme]. Look, with Mission: Impossible I understand you need very choreographed stunts, but I like dirty, sloppy stunts."


Another possibility for Bay is to see the director do a film that returns him to a more Bad Boys-centric buddy premise. Though he wouldn't name the people in question, Bay did tease the fact that he has a meeting on the books with a pair of newer actors.

"There are a couple of new guys I want to work with, and maybe pair them up together. Not that they'd necessarily be action stars, but they potentially could be. They're quite humorous. I'm not going to say who they are because I haven't met them yet, but we'll see."

When we asked whether we could see Bay make another buddy action-comedy along the lines of Bad Boys, he's all for it. "Definitely. I love putting actors into unexpected roles," he said.

So what about Bad Boys 3 then?


The sequel, titled Bad Boys for Life, currently has a release date of November 8, 2018, but no director. Joe Carnahan had to depart the project due to scheduling conflicts, and now there's a vacant spot. While fans of Bay would love to see him tackle that third installment himself, unfortunately it doesn't seem like he's currently a candidate.

"Pretty soon they're going to be old boys, okay. Pretty soon they're going to be retired cops instead of active-duty cops," Bay joked when we asked him about Bad Boys 3. "It's taken a long time to get that thing going, and I'm not involved in getting it going. They should get it going soon, though. You could definitely get Martin and Will to be funny again -- those were fun movies to do."

We'll have much more with Michael Bay as we inch closer to the June 21 release of Transformers: The Last Knight. Stay tuned!
