This week’s guest judge Michael Bay added some star power to On the Lot and very clearly turned up the pressure for the remaining 15 contestants.
The plugs for Bay’s new summer tentpole “Transformers” were pretty consistent, which underscored his heft in the biz that our hopefuls are trying to crack.
Format this week found five of the 15 — Sam, Trever, Adam, Hilary and Shalini — getting the chance to showcase their latest productions, three-minute shorts that had to be completed in five days, using mostly their own wits and connections for sets, actors, lighting, etc.
