Nonstop Feast of Coolness

From Peter Hartlaub's review of "Transformers," from the San Francisco Chronicle:

[Director Michael Bay] got more than his money's worth with the visuals and sound, which provide a nonstop feast of coolness throughout the film.

...even more important is the special effects work from Industrial Light & Magic, which creates its most seamless visuals on a big budget picture since "Master & Commander: The Far Side of the World." The transforming effects are awesome.

hi todd... saw the movie yesterday and was blown away with the FX work. Although I wish Bay would ease up on the frenetic camera work which somewhat detracted from the great VFX.

Anyways do you mind breaking down which effects houses worked on which sequences? i.e. which scenes did Digital Domain do?

thanks

Ben - hopefully I'll be able to talk all about the work very soon. Stay tuned.
