While the work of director Michael Bay is the butt of many jokes, many of them involving explosions, there's no doubt that he's good at what he does. His movies are huge hits, even if they're not critical darlings, and he's one of the most efficient and intense directors in the entertainment industry. And even though Transformers: Age of Extinction is pretty terrible, that doesn't make a look behind the scenes of post-production on the visual effects heavy blockbuster any less interesting. An extensive, 22-minute featurette called Transformers 4: The Final Touches has surfaced online and shows Bay and ILM visual effects producer Wayne Billheimer finishing up this past summer's action extravaganza. Watch!
Here's the 22-minute featurette on Transformers: Age of Extinction post-production (via Collider):
