Michael Bay Uses Bayhem Camera To Film Explosive Transformers 5 Scene

Most people can spot a Michael Bay film coming from a mile away. His visual style is well-defined and consists of big explosions, slow-motion action sequences, an orange and blue color palette, gratuitous product placement, and plenty of low-angle 360-degree shots.

"Bayhem" is the term coined to refer to Bay's style, and showing that even he has a sense of humor, that's the name Bay gave to his new RED camera. He introduced Bayhem, which he says is the "lightest, most advanced hand held motion picture camera in the world," by posting a video showing himself using it on the set of Transformers: The Last Knight, filming an explosive scene.

The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight will feature Mark Wahlberg ("Planet of the Apes") as Cade Yeager, Isabela Moner ("100 Things To Do Before High School") as Izabella, Josh Duhamel ("Life as We Know It") as Lieutenant Colonel William Lennox, and Tyrese Gibson ("Furious 7") as Robert Epps, as well as Jerrod Carmichael ("Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising"), Anthony Hopkins ("Thor: The Dark World"), and of course, Peter Cullen as the voice of Optimus Prime.

Michael Bay, who has directed the previous four installments in Transformers live-action film franchise, returns to direct the fifth installment. Transformers: The Last Knight was written by a trio of screenwriters: Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and Ken Nolan.

The Paramount and Hasbro partnership is responsible for the worldwide blockbuster success of the Transformers franchise, which has earned $3.8 billion to-date, and whose films, directed by Bay, are amongst the highest grossing movies of all time.


Transformers: The Last Knight is set for release June 23, 2017.
