ILM Singapore Begins Work on Transformers 4, New Super Bowl Image (Updated)

Today George Lucas was on hand to officially open the "Sandcrawler" in Singapore. The new 22,500 square meter campus is the location for ILM's CGI work outside of the United States. One of the first projects for the new building will be working on is Transformers: Age of Extinction. Later projects are expected to include Avengers 2, an animated project and more. The site features a Yoda fountain, theater and other techno bells and whistles. The name of the building is a result of its similar shape to the Sandcrawler from Star Wars A New Hope. ILM has had an arm in Singapore for a few years now having worked on Rango and Star Wars: The Clone Wars but the dedicated building will allow them to expand their capabilities there.

On a not really related note, here is a new image found on a Transformers 4 Facebook page by Colin H for the upcoming teaser trailer attached to Super Bowl 48. I have no idea if its offical (probably not) but it looks good enough for me to not really care. Update: The sweet image is a fan creation from TFW2005's TunaKaan.

  5. One really opes that ILM started working on the CGI many months ago.. not just now. Otherwise the movie would suck CGI wise.

      If you know anything of how moviemaking works and have seen extra's on blu-rays on how they do things, you'd know ILM starts working as soon as the first scenes are shot!
      When the first scenes are shot, they will go directly to ILM to work on.
      On Bay's own site S4TE, admin Nelson even said long time ago, he had already seen Bee and new bots fighting.

      It's not like they first shoot the movie and then just drop everything at ILM.Then they would indeed need much, much more time. And we're not even talking about the 3D rendering.

  7. Martinus Prime is right. Bay probably uses some type of ftp as soon as they start filming, so that he can get footage to ILM right away. It takes a lot of time to do all the 3D modeling, animation, rendering and editing on these films. I recall hearing Bay was doing color - correction on ROTF right up to one of the foreign premieres.

  8. I would think they started all the rendering months before shooting even began just being that they had to do basically all new models and configure ways that the pieces actually fit in vehicle mode. Kind of like he did in the first one.
