Bay chat on

Posted on May 17, 2001

I asked Michael about the falling bomb shot (whether it was all CGI or a composite, and man, are we in for a ride), and this is what he had to say:

Michael: Let me say that we have about 30 of those shots. There is stuff no one has seen on any trailer or any commercial. That shot…it’s great, but we have ones that are much better. And yes, it was shot from a helicopter at different altitudes We melded the film together, and those were digital battleships.
