I was researching Micheal Bay yesterday, the alleged 'King of Destruction'. Mr Sam Saunders showed me a chase scene from the film 'The Island'. What I observed was Bay likes to use allot of shakey camera in his action. It makes the scene seem more frantic. He also likes to shoot his chases very wide and close to the ground. He also likes to make the camera follow the action, almost like ti is chasing the cars itself. This makes the audience feel more involved in the scene and possibly feel like they a part of it. This is something I will be using in the film. J.B special camera should come in very handy.

  1. Am I the only person that thinks that Scarlett Johanson is a truly TERRIBLE actress and should NEVER, EVER, EVER be allowed to act in films EVER, EVER, EVER! She is gormless and completely fracking terrible. ANYWAY...back to business the key to creating a decent Bay Bang Shot (also known as a Baygasm Shot) you need to research more of the original master John Woo. The SteadyCam rig can be locked onto any object as well so you can create a POV feel for the audience if necessary. Also we could also add true DoF to the camera attributes if you wanted to get real depth as well.
