Pearl Harbor Director Goes Back To Basics

13 November 2001 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Pearl Harbor director Michael Bay is going back to basics by cutting out the special effects for a more minimalist approach. The Hollywood movie maker, who's also responsible for blockbusters such as The Rock and Armageddon, has created a low budget genre film division called Platinum Dunes, which will help younger directors in their quest for success. The company, which is named after Bay's first student film, is to be run by producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, both friends of the director, and will make films in the $5 million to $12 million price range. Bay explains, "Since Pearl Harbor, I've decided to change things. I've started a commercial division this past summer called - and we're making fun of ourselves with the name - the Institute For Development Of The Advanced Perceptual Awareness. I'm 37 years old and it's time to not just be the guy who does huge movies. I want to branch out, expand and with this low budget division, be instrumental in the careers of younger directors." »
