Okay, so this is my first thread, and I'm really excited about what I have to say. First, I LOVE Transformers and I enjoy every Michael Bay film a lot! One day, I would just love to be a director or sinemaphotographer [sp?], or something like that, I just really love films [movies].
Anyways, I was thinking when I watched Transformers [I watched it about five times] that while every part of the film is so very awesomely crazy, I was thinking of other scenes or techniques of shooting action sequences for the next Transformers movie. So, here are my ideas.
1. I love that action scenes a lot, but it would also be cool to shoot that action further away [every now and then, not all the time]. For instance, say, when the robots are fighting in the city, it would have been cool to see one of them from a distance just tearing through a building. Maybe a jet crashes through a tall building and a fireball and debris comes out the other side. Or maybe like the scene when the two robots crash through the building, It would have been cool to see that from a distance, no slow motion.
2. Just other ideas I was thinking of: While one of the robots are in a car form, show them going of a huge jump, and transforming in mid air, where they then attack something, or catch something else in the air like a jet or helicopter.
So, anyways, you can post any ideas you want about what you think Transformers 2 should or shouldn't be like. Although I would have liked to see some action shots from further away, I still love the movie and I would easily say it is the number one action movie ever!
