FILMING NOTIFICATION
***PLEASE NOTE THE TRAFFIC RESTRICTIONS***

August 19, 2013

Dear Building Owners, Merchants and Residents,

Paramount Pictures will be filming scenes for the upcoming motion picture “Transformers 4” in your neighborhood. We are excited to return to Chicago to capture the same unique Chicago look and remarkable architecture we found so cinematic in 2010. At Alderman Reilly’s request we are reaching out to the local community to communicate our filming activity.

Our production has a number of days for low-level helicopter work in the area. To ensure safety, low-level aerial filming requires temporary street closures to pedestrians and vehicles under the helicopter’s path of travel.

We are currently proposing the following aerial work:

Sunday, August 25th (07:00am – 09:00am) – CHICAGO RIVER / Columbus Dr to Franklin St

- The helicopter will be traveling east and west down the Chicago River from Columbus Dr to Franklin Street, and south on Franklin to Lake Street.

- Bridges at Wabash, State and Dearborn will be raised simultaneously and remain up for a majority of the filming time frame.

- Pedestrians and vehicles will be detoured around the raised bridges.

- Vehicle and pedestrian traffic on lowered bridges can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming. Vehicles and pedestrians will be held outside of the fly-zone ONLY during filming.

- The Chicago Riverwalk and adjacent plazas within the fly-zone will have intermittent pedestrian control.

- Boat traffic can expect 10-15 minute delays during filming between Columbus and Franklin Street bridges.


We are working closely with Alderman Reilly’s office, the Chicago Police Department, the Chicago Film Office and the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure a safe and cooperative filming event. Our goal is to make this a positive experience for everyone involved and we want to address your individual needs and concerns. Please call with any questions you may have. All business will open for normal hours and we will direct you to the closest detour if you choose not to wait. As always, we understand that we are guests in your neighborhood, and will conduct ourselves accordingly. Thank you for hosting us and we appreciate your cooperation and understanding.

More Age of Extinction News
Via their Facebook page, Prime 1 Studios has shared images of an upcoming Premium Bust Series entry based on Brawn from the 2007 Transformers movie. The bust captures a lot of the upper body vehicle elements in great sharpness and detail, and makes an excellent representation of the character as he appeared in the movie before being killed by Bumblebee. This update does not present information regarding release date or price, but given the level of completion, we expect that to be revealed soon. Keep reading to see all the pictures!
Thanks to Target.com who have posted new order pages with images of the Transformers Age of Extinction Power Attackers Junkheap, Vehicon, and High Octane Bumblebee. Get an official look at the final Wave 4 figures in the packaging now.
Live-action Transformers composer Steve Jablonsky has posted an illuminating explanation to Facebook to help us understand why the Age of Extinction (and, as it turns out, Dark of the Moon) soundtracks have been removed from iTunes. In short, it has to do with music licensing fees that kick in at a certain threshold- and Paramount doesn't want to have to pay them. Keep reading for Jablonsky's full statement!
The official TakaraTomy PR Twitter account for Transformers has posted a new photo of Army Camo Hound, a recolor of the Generations Voyager mold that is part of a special box set with the Japanese home video release of Age of Extinction. It's not a huge difference from the mass release in either country, but it looks pretty nice and should be a nice bonus for those who want the Japanese Blu-Ray version of Transformers 4. Keep reading to see the photo!
Michael Bay's official account has posted a 10-minute outtake reel to Vimeo! Plenty of behind-the-scenes action to be seen, along with a couple of cameras falling victim to the master of explosions. Also notable: Kelsey Grammer covered in blood and ash, saying "I was this close!" Keep reading to see it for yourself!
