Apparently I wasn’t the only one ‘taking notes’ while enjoying my time as an extra on the set of Transformers 3. Another extra has come out with their story of the accident that occurred during the final highway stunt of Transformers 3 in Hammond, Indiana on Wednesday September 1st, 2010.
A video has been posted exclusively by Radar Online which consists of amatuer video shot from the car of an extra on the set of Transformers 3.
I am wondering how much this anonymous extra sold their video for… and I wonder if I ought to try selling my own! ^_^
Apparently the anonymous extra decided to play white knight and chastise the film crew:
“We weren’t trained stunt people. They paid regular extras to use their own personal cars an extra $25 per day for that freeway scene,” the extra continued. “We were never informed of the risk we were putting ourselves in and when you take into consideration the amount you are being paid to be there, it’s not worth it.”
That’s interesting. You sure thought it was worth your time and money the two previous days. It’s not like the crew was planning on someone getting hurt. Once again, this was a complete accident. The production was well aware of the risks and there were medical and police units on hand during the entire shoot. If you have such a high opinion, why not make a comment with your real name attached? You must really want the $300 you were paid to sit in your air conditioning for 3 days. Tough work, indeed.
The ultimate fate of Miss Cedillo is still uncertain.
