Transformer 3 Scenes in Cambodia

I was playing with Aiken (after watching the preliminary paintball match between Dynasty & Russian Legion at PSP 2011) when Joyce saw “Transformer 3 is shooting at Wat Phnom now” at DJ Buffy’s facebook wall. I went down to ask biggie if he wants to go… after seeing the result when he googled “Transformer 3 Cambodia” he said – yes, let’s go.

I was expecting some explosions and people running around like the one i saw a month earlier somewhere in youtube.. (look for Transformer 3 Chicago shoot) –

much to my disappointment – Roads are blocked.  No audience allowed. And we were greeted with decepticons saying NO CAMERA’s Allowed. well, only after shooting a few snaps already lol… he might have been some crappy old version decepticon because he didnt asked me to annihilate…err delete my pics:

They were taping somewhere in-front the Municipal Post Office and not in Wat Phnom…

“Transformers 3” To Be Shot in Cambodia

Phnom Penh, January 21, 2011 AKP –
“Transformers 3 – Dark Side of the Moon” will be shot in Cambodia in February 2011 at the Angkor Temple Complex and Bokor Hill Station, according to Mr. Nicholas Simon, producer of Indochina Productions.

“Transformers 3” is the third part of the well-known science-fiction movie about TRANFORMER robots defending the earth.

“We want to shoot in Cambodia as it is one of the most beautiful countries around. With both Angkor Wat and Cambodia’s natural wonders, we will be able to maintain the large production scale of TRANFORMERS while giving the impression that the story is traveling all around the planet earth,” said Mr. Nicholas Simon in his letter addressed to Cambodian Minister of Information H.E. Khieu Kanharith.

This production will highlight the beauty the Angkor Temple Complex to a worldwide audience, he said, adding that it is estimated that over 500 million people have seen the previous two Transformers and with TRANFORMERS 3, millions more will discover the beautiful landscapes and cultural heritage of Cambodia.

Mr. Simon also recalled his good experiences in film production working in Cambodia on projects such as ORACLE, Matt Dillon’s CITY OF GHOSTS and Legendary Pictures’ I AM THAT MAN. –AKP

  14. The new high tech laser engraver is easier and safer to use then ever before. This means that if you picture people being “zapped” by them, there is nothing to worry about. This is because new safety features make using them as safe as using any other type of engraving machine.
