Creating the Knightship for “Transformers: Age of Extinction” was an immense challenge for the visual effects team due to it’s massive scale. In fact, the Knightship is over five times larger than the worm-like drilling robot that appeared in “Dark of the Moon” which had previously held the record at ILM for most complex model.

Visual Effects Supervisors, Scott Farrar and Mohen Leo along with Creature Supervisor Michael Balog discuss the challenges involved in bringing this creation to the big screen.
