According to those youtube comments, they had to shut down production on the chase scenes because a stunt woman killed herself while working on it. They had to use something to fill the gap.

*shrug*


She didn't kill herself and she wasn't a stunt woman. She was an extra, being paid $100 for one day of work. They asked her to use her car, and like any wannabe actor, agreed to it because anything you can do to get remembered, you do. They then hooked up her personal car to use for the scene, something went wrong and the cable snapped, pretty much scalping her. She's alive, but permanently brain-damaged and paralyzed on one side.

THAT'S the price of trying to cut costs. If it was a stunt person, production would be shut down but it wouldn't have been as big a deal. Stunt people sign waivers and they know the risks of the job. An extra shouldn't be in any sort of situation like that.

Logged in to clear that up. TotallySoldOut is correct.

Well if you ever created something you would be able to understand why you use short-cuts by using your previous creations. No exp. from you, so shut-up about using the equally lazy, lazy card.

a writer who reuses paragraphs with a minor word change here or there is a mediocre writer. thought it makes sense, bay is a mediocre director.

Taking potshots at Bay seems to be the rage here.

have people here SERIOUSLY never heard of stock footage?

You can find digital edits of different stock footage ALL over the place. You think every aerial view of a city in movies was filmed by hiring a helicopter and flying around the city? You might think so but, surprise, stock footage.

It has nothing to do with "being on Michael Bay's ****" as you so eloquently put it. It is an EXTREMELY common practice.
84% of people make up their statistics. If you are one of the 16% that don't, put this in your signature.

So you basically ingored the other examples? It's not just Michael Bay that does this.

And really? Can't people defend something/someone without being a fanboy? Jesus.

It's a perfect analogy....recreating something has nothing to do with lack of creativity in this situation.

The scene worked didn't it? Why redo it? Why pay to do it again?

if reusing shots is actually a standard in the film industry, then i question how anyone takes this industry seriously.

glad to know i could create a movie from various re-shots and call it my own as long as i change something miniscule and add a little cgi.
