After working for 4 months as a sculptor on Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, I got an invite to the Wrap Party, so Akiko and I headed out to Hollywood last night to party down with the cast and crew.
We don't get out all that much so it was fun hanging out at a hip club with an open bar, excellent food and a burlesque trio shaking things up for a few tunes. The highlight however was Michael Bay himself presenting a full length trailer that no one has seen yet as a thanks for all the hard work the crew put in to make the film. In true Bay fashion, the trailer had plenty of Armed Forces presence, returning stars and above all else, tons of stuff getting blowed up. We're talking some serious explosions here. Whoa.
Great time LA style.
Welcome TRANSFORMERS fans. My blog has been linked to a few sites because of the wrap party info. It has been clarified that what we were shown at the party was not an official trailer, but footage shot for the sequel, cut like a trailer. It was for us cast and crew and not something anyone should expect to see released any time soon.
Despite what has been said though, there was at least 3 scenes with robots. However, the robots were ones already established in the first film so no breaking news here.
