Transformers Set Visit!


Last August, Hype! got a chance to visit the set of director Michael Bay’s Transformers, hitting theaters on July 4. We got to witness one of the final scenes being shot in downtown Los Angeles with Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson on location.

A group of online reporters met in a parking lot a few blocks away from the set and were shuttled over. As we walked up the street that was blocked off to the general public, extras bustled passed us and prepared for another take. Transformers used for the filming that day were Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide and Jazz. There were camera cranes placed over the cars and at the end of the road were styrofoam rocks made to look like concrete. It looked as though they had been blown up and two crashed cars were being loaded onto a tow truck. There were men dressed in military uniforms standing in the middle of it all.

We got right down to business and entered a store that was closed during shooting to interview Bay and the four stars. You can read the interviews by using the links below!
