In this fxguide interview we talked to Digital Domain visual effects supervisor Matthew Butler about his team’s 350 shots for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Responsible for the characters Laserbeak, Brains, Wheels and the Decepticon protoforms hiding out on the moon, views of the space bridge, as well as the elaborate Bird Men skydiving sequence, Digital Domain handled all of the shots in stereo for the film and Digital Domain’s sister company, In-Three, handled some of the 3D conversion.
