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):
Michael Bay is again directing Transformers 4, or Transformers: Age of Extinction, from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger, as his last film in the blockbuster series The film begins after an epic battle that left a great city torn. As humanity picks up the pieces, a shadowy group reveals itself in an attempt to control the direction of history while an ancient, powerful new menace sets Earth in its crosshairs. With help from a new cast of humans, Optimus Prime (voiced by Peter Cullen) and the Autobots rise to meet their most fearsome challenge yet. The cast includes Mark Wahlberg, T.J. Miller, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer and more and Paramount Pictures has the film out on Blu-Ray & DVD now.

Holy crap...this was awesome.... getting to understand the amount of work....teamwork.... and creativity.... that is involved. The Transformers movies are truly epic events. Thank you Michael Bay and to everybody involved.

That was really interesting to watch, so much goes into those films it's always good to see the process, even though I'm not the biggest fan of them.
