PREFACE:
While the project of TransformNate.com is over, the website lives on. For now, the site will remain in the form it progressed into throughout the months just last year. I have updated the ‘Media’ section as well as other parts of the site as I’ve seen fit. I will continue to add updated information I have about myself and projects I am a part of as they happen.

Below you’ll find the original introduction I wrote for the website as well as a letter written to Michael Bay in regards to certain events that happened following the release of the Hollywood Reporter ad. I’ve left both up to help any visitors understand path this project took.

I still receive emails and requests for stickers and the iPod theme which I respond to quickly. So by all means keep them coming, I love to hear from you all.

Until my next venture,

Nathan Barilka

Thank you for visiting TransformNate.com.
I created this web page with one objective in mind: to be cast in a role in the upcoming movie 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'. I am aware of the difficult process of film making and what steps are taken to fill roles in such an epic movie, so let me say this; I am not looking for a lead part but simply a credited role. Big or small. I am also not looking for a hand-out, but more so for the opportunity. I am willing to work and earn my way onto the production.

The first film was revolutionary, and has easily become my new favorite movie. I am blown away by the visual effects and get lost in the story and action of the film. I can only imagine the time and effort put into the first Transformers movie by the entire design team, as well as the countless hours of dedication by not only the cast and crew, and finally the post production team. That being said, I would very much like to be a part of the sequel.

Why make this site? I’ve done this not only to introduce and exhibit myself, but also to show my support and inform others about the upcoming project. It is a tool - a point of reference for me as well as for others who share this common interest.

There is an online email submission form for any questions or comments for me. I am open for any suggestions you may have for the site. If you prefer, feel free to email me directly at contact@transformnate.com. I will do my best to respond to all emails in a timely manner.

Again, thank you for your visit, and I appreciate your support.

~ Nate

Dear Mr. Bay,
A little time has passed, and the dust has settled since the event advertised in The Hollywood Reporter a couple weeks back. I’ve sent an apology to a few individuals whom I feel needed to be addressed directly from myself, and I would like to extend that courtesy to you as well. It seems several people in legal authority thought that my invitation to you was poorly worded and a misrepresentation of the purpose of the night. By request I did cancel the event and change some of the contents on the site, but I want you to know, that the honest reason I published the ad was to invite you and those mentioned in the ad to join in on the night’s festivities, just as I stated in the ad. I had no intention of causing an upset in yours or anyone else’s day by doing so. I am a serious, hard working actor who wanted to do something original with the hopes of getting my face and goals in front of the right people.

I appreciate your part in finding a solution to the matter. I hope we get the opportunity to work together some day in the future.

Best wishes,

Nathan Barilka
