Hear Michael Bay's opinion about the current state of 3D--and whether or not you'll be wearing glasses while watching Transformers 3.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Mr. Bay isn't too fond of 3D movies, especially not his. He had this to say.
"I shoot complicated stuff, I put real elements into action scenes and honestly, I am not sold right now on the conversion process."
Not to say the man didn't try. Apparently, Bay did look into shooting some of the film in 3D but he found the 3D cameras "too heavy and cumbersome" for his fast pace movies.
What about up-converting his movies from 2D to 3D? Well, he covers that too.
"I am trying to be sold, and some companies are still working on the shots I gave them," Bay stated. "Right now, it looks like fake 3D, with layers that are very apparent. You go to the screening room, you are hoping to be thrilled, and you're thinking, huh, this kind of sucks. People can say whatever they want about my movies, but they are technically precise, and if this isn't going to be excellent, I don't want to do it. And it is my choice."
How about letting someone else do all the heavy lifting for you? When it comes to Michael's babies, he isn't too trusting. He added this.
"I'm used to having the A-team working on my films, and I'm going to hand it over to the D-team, have it shipped to India and hope for the best? This conversion process is always going to be inferior to shooting in real 3D. Studios might be willing to sacrifice the look and use the gimmick to make $3 more a ticket, but I'm not. Avatar took four years. You can't just shit out a 3D movie. I'm saying, the jury is still out."
Sounds like he's sticking to his guns. I don't know about you guys, but I'm glad someone didn't jump on the 3D bandwagon.
