Cameron on Avatar

TITANIC sinker and AQUAMAN swimmer James Cameron recently spoke at the Microsoft Advance conference, and served a dish of wassup on his finance-straining sci-fi epic AVATAR.

Cameron downplayed the story in favor of his experimentation with the latest technological leaps: ""I don't know whether it will be a great film from a narrative and critical standpoint. The experience of AVATAR will be an experience unlike any other movie." And he claims that his digital actors (or "syn-thespians") will be mind-blowingly realistic: "One more layer of the suspension of disbelief will be removed. All the syn-thespians are photo-realistic. Now that we've achieved it, we discovered CG characters in 3D look more real than in 2D. Your brain is cued it's a real thing not a picture and discounting part of image that makes it look fake."

The futuristic movie is due December 2009 and involves a disabled war veteran who travels to an alien world, for which Cameron has crafted "a complete ecosystem of phantasmagorical plants and creatures, and a native people with a rich culture and language" (part of the film will be subtitled).

Extra Tidbit: Cameron claims that all his films from now on will be 3-D, so get used to wearing headgear and trying to touch things on the movie screen.
