Hey guys! A few interesting details...
Unfortunately I didn't get cast as an extra, but my girlfriend did! She went down to the stages for a wardrobe fitting today and found out that filming begins on Wednesday, the 5th, on the Universal Studios backlot. They are going to be filming the high school scenes the week of July tenth at a high school in Pasadena. The other day on the way to work we saw Bumblebee on a flatbed trailer headed towards the construction stages! The truck had "Cinema Services Motion Picture Car Transport" on the side and BumbleBee was sandwiched between a couple of SUV's on the flatbed. They all had fake license plates and BumbleBee had some "battle damage" painted on. I have a few pictures from my cell phone- not amazing but you get the idea at least. We went down to Universal Studios today and took the tram tour to try to get a glimpse of the sets being built. Couldn't see much, but we did see one building dressed like a museum (I think) that had huge banners on it displaying an exhibit called "Giants of the Machine Age- 1918 to 1941" (got a cell phone pic of that too). Maybe Spike's class goes on a field trip to the museum...? We also saw a wall being built with holes blown out of it, a couple of tanks and a fleet of police vehicles. Here are the links for pictures:
