    Hey guys,

    Quite new to this forum but I just had to share my little quest with you guys.

    Of course as a kid I played with transformers :grin: To be honest, I kinda forgot about them during adolescence because there were all these other cool things. One of these things being abstract film.

    I always loved the opening sequence of the film NAQOYQATSI. Black and white images of this old desolated building. Struck me as quite beautiful. And I guess that is why the imagery embedded itself in my memory.

    Then yesterday I took a trip down memory lane and went to the movies to see Transformers. To me great surprise during the final big battle near the end of the film there was a sequence shot at the exact same location as the film Naqoyqatsi. Well I wasn't really sure so I did some research.

    And after some intense surfing I finally found the answer. Never would have imagines there being a link between Transformers and Naqoyqatsi..... Nice surprise. Hehe.

    I was just wondering if someone else noticed too? Or am I the only freak.

    Take care all.

    Wow...its been years since I watched the "qatsi" series of films. I didn't even make the connection between the two buildings until you pointed it out. That's a pretty cool link between the films, even if it's probably just because the location people for Bay's film already had the building on file as a good filming location...
