Transformers 3 Being Filmed in 3D

Posted July 2nd, 2010 at 1:58 pm

Good news on the 3D front (which has been rare as of late) as it has been discovered that Michael Bay has decided to shoot Transformers 3 with 3D cameras rather than go the post-production route. Three films recently have been converted in post with all of them (Alice in Wonderland, Clash of the Titans, The Last Airbender) being criticized for doing so. Audiences have started to display backlash towards 3D largely caused by disappointment from their experiences in those films. Even Toy Story 3 got knocked for the 3D being unnecessary.

There was concern that Transformers 3 would be another in the line of post-production conversions as Bay had made it public knowledge that he was being pressured to push out Transformers 3 in 3D. He felt that it would not be possible for him to film with 3D cameras because of their bulk and weight. Apparently though he has gotten over that issue and will be filming the entire movie in 3D.
