i'm concerned about the question that asks if you have a car. I've seen the first two movies. despite the subject matter, i'm pretty sure the director has it out for cars.

What the hell. I'll give it a whirl. The worst that can happen is that you film but you don't make the final cut - however, you will be entitled to get your SAG card which is pretty sweet.

They were filming in Chicago a few weeks back. Walked around the corner, saw a car on fire, the entire block was filled w/ rubble, few cars on fire. It was crazy looking. I can't imagine how long it took to get to look like that and then back to normal.

That's the usual rate for extras, yes.
And a free meal.

If you get a speaking role, anything - "Here's you paper." - "Look over there!"
- "Hey, watch it!" you automatically qualify for your SAG card.

This blows. 3 weeks, now 3 days of shooting due to Bay being denied shots on the mall.



Requests Denied for Transformers 3 DC Shoot






Transformers Live Action Movie Blog (TFLAMB): Requests Denied for Transformers 3 DC Shoot

Quote:
It seems that the Michael Bay's ambitious plans for filming Transformers 3 in Washington, DC met its match in the form of the National Park Service (NPS). TBD.com is reporting that the three week shoot has now officially become three days, occurring at some point during the week of September 27th.

It was reported that the original plans for the Capital called for a chase sequence with pyrotechnics at the National Mall. The NPS did not like the idea, with a spokesperson saying, "The National Mall is not an area in which Americans come to see high-tech action movies being shot." Negotiations to determine what would and would not be allowed continued with Bay finally getting approval but specifics on what was not provided. As the reduction to three days indicates, Bay clearly did not get approved for much.
[Kathy Hollinger, the head of D.C.'s film office] calls NPS the "most challenging" federal agency to work with.

"We put a lot of energy into this because we knew it would be this huge positive economic impact for the city," she says. "So it was going to be a few weeks, and now it's dwindled to a few days, and it dwindled to a few days because NPS shot down a few of the locations."

The Washington Monument was among those locations, though she couldn't recall the others. A scene planned for the Lincoln Memorial was approved. Park Services spokesman Bill Line's phone was busy during several attempts this afternoon.

"We worked our butts off more than we ever have before, to go as high as we could at NPS, to say, 'This is crazy,'" she says. "It's so frustrating, because it was an opportunity to really show the industry that this could be done in the District, that residents could be hired at a time when a lot of people are out of work. Business could have been booming in the fall."
On one hand I want to wage against the bureaucracy as Transformers in DC would be fantastic but on the other hand I get why NPS said no. One of the mandates of the agency is to protect our parks and its monuments. If a stunt somehow went wrong and something historically important was damaged, they would have failed at their mandate and the blow back would be huge. People would instantly go from "Why wasn't this approved?" to "Why was this approved?” Considering the National Mall is nothing but historically significant stuff, the concerns are very valid. Still a shame as the odds of that occurring are very small.

I wonder what changes this has led to the production schedule. Does that mean the DC stunts were nixed? Being filmed in a studio and married to the DC footage in the editing room? Re-purposed for another location? Hopefully find out at some point. Thanks to Ann for the link.
