Pearl Harbor tidbit

Posted on May 8, 2000

Someone emailed me this tidbit that originally apprear in Dark Horizons.

“A little tit-bit report from some preliminary shooting on the Michael Bay directed Pearl Harbor here in Hawaii which wrapped up today. I witnessed one scene filmed, which was primarily a shot from above the ground (100 metres). However, located at each angle to the centre shot, were several cameras. A few words with some of the production staff, told me this was all to do with the DVD release. Apparently, viewers of the DVD, will be able to choose which camera angle they want to view. This won’t be of just certain scenes, but of the whole movie.

This film will change the face of the way we view DVD, and will be the first major film to have ‘proper’ interaction with the viewer, almost allowing the audience to direct the film itself.”

Cinco de Mayo and Tony Cimo

Posted on May 5, 2000

For those of you of Mexican heritage, I would like to wish you a “Feliz Cinco de Mayo!”

For those of you living in Atlanta, WATL will broadcast this Saturday afternoon “Vengance: The Story of Tony Cimo.” So what’s the big deal? I’ve been bombarded with emails asking me if Michael acts in this movie as a sled agent. Go figure. The Internet Movie DataBase (IMDB) list him as part of the cast for this 1986 movie. I have official word that tells me that it is not the Michael Bay we know. Who the hell gave this info? Can anyone delete that info at the IMDB?

Anyway, if someone gets to record this, please send me a copy (email me at nelson@michaelbay.com if you want my mailing address). I wanna see who this sled agent is…
