Cameron's Geeting His Amazing "Avatar" On Track -- Slowly

by | December 22, 2006 | Comments

The good news on the James Cameron‘s "Avatar" front is this: The filmmaker’s been working with Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg on a mega-fancy cutting-edge special effects system the likes of which have never been seen before. The bad news is that the movie won’t be ready until 2009.

From Mr. Cameron by way of JoBlo’s Movie Emporium: "The film requires me to create an entirely new alien culture and language, and for that I want ‘photo-real’ CGI characters. Sophisticated enough ‘performance-capture’ animation technology is only coming on stream now. I’ve spent the last 14 months doing performance-capture work – the actor performs the character and then we animate it. We’ve set up a studio, and last week Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg were here trying out the technology. I said to them, ‘Take my tools and play with them for a week.’ They were grinning from ear to ear. It’s a really exciting time because so many new things are now possible."
