3 Minutes of AOE Shown to Kids at Detroit School

Co-producer Allegra Clegg paid a visit to a Detroit area elementary/middle school as part of a campaign from Paramount Pictures that encourages school attendance. A three minute clip was shown to the kids as a part of the presentation (Those lucky little...). Check out this excerpt from The Detroit Hub for more information about the event.

That gave them the chance to have Clegg come to the school, talk about how the film was made, career options in the film industry, as well as giving the kids a first look at the next installment in the Transformers franchise, due in theaters June 27, 2014.

The Durfee students were some of the first to check out a three-minute extended clip of the film before anyone, anywhere on the planet. Seeing the clip and talking with the producer was even more special because much of the movie was filmed in Detroit.

"It takes thousands of people to make a movie like Transformers. The entire community has to come together to make it a success," said Clegg. "Detroit and Michigan are great places to shoot a project."

When it came time for questions, the kids started out a little shy, but warmed up quickly. They grilled Clegg on everything from how the film’s robots were named to how she got into the business to how they could get a job in Hollywood and what they needed to study now as elementary and middle schoolers to someday do what she is doing.
