Default Long James Cameron Interview + news tidbits

Here's a 40+ minute interview with James Cameron by James Murdoch (son or Ruppert Murdoch, FOX's big boss) at the Abu Dhabi Media Summit.

In the interview, they talk about a lot of things, notably:
  • JC plans to go down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench in a submarine and film a few shots for Avatar2 next year.
  • the 3D technology will soon be indistinguishable from reality (one can only hope!).
  • A certain FOX's exec (since canned or at least not working for the company anymore) said while Avatar was in production: "Is there any way to reduce this New Age, tree-hugging, hippy crap?"
Here's the link to the full interview

* * *

Also, at the end of the month, JC, Georges Lucas and other big players will hold a panel at CinemaCon, the annual convention of theater owners in Vegas. They'll be discussing digital cinema, 3D (of course) and the next day, JC will give a talk on projection frame rates.

About that last point, I made a post a little while ago (see here) where JC stated he wants to project Avatar 2-3 and probably his other projects at higher frame rates (48 or 60 fps instead of the usual 24). It'll be interesting to see what comes of it.

That's all for now, Cheers!

Edit: I forgot to add the link for the CinemaCon story, here it is: Linky

WOW!! I am going to have to listen to this one. Also really interested in the CinemaCon. You said the end of the month, as in the end of March? I live here in Vegas and wonder if I might be able to go and check that out. That would be really cool. Thank for the great info ma 'eylan!

The troll comments are just hilarious! xD

Will they ever get tired of their nitpicking? "The robot had a knife, the movie is bad guys!" "Why would he be attracted to a blue alien, the movie is totally teh suck".

Hahaha! Ah well, criticial aclaim, highest box office of all time, and of course, a bunch of oscars ... But i guess the movie is bad anyway! ^^

Anyway, im watching it right now, and im really enjoying it! Thanks for the link!

As mentioned in the first post, JC and Jon Landau are at CinemaCon to talk about higher frame rates while shooting movies.

Here's the report on what was said during their presentation:

Especially if it improves 3D quality as well as normal video quality
