Nelson here...Pick-ups generally mean minor shots to add or replace existing footage. This is usually done when part of the editing process it was determined that either certain shots were not working as originally filmed or to add clarification. For example, say a distance shot of an actor saying a line wasn't working right so might do a pick-up to get the close-up shot instead. As for the burglary, above are all the details available so no info on what was taken. Confused on why federal authorities are involved. My best guess is copyrighted material was taken such as script, film, etc. This isn't Michael Bay's first experience as his home in New Mexico was broken into when he was filming Transformers 2. Thanks to Chris for the link.
Just a couple of things I wanted to share with you guys.
* Michael was shooting today some of the last pickup scenes for Transformers Dark Of The Moon.
* Burglars broke into the production offices of the movie. Federal authorities have been called in due to the sensitive nature of the burglary.
