James Cameron is exploring new territory, as usual. He will be coming out with a movie that pushes boundaries back, just like The Terminator, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and Titanic.
This project (which isn’t exactly new, but I just heard about it) will combine live action actors and the technology that brought the world Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, plus it will filmed and broadcast in 3D!
The motion capture techniques used for Gollum will be updated and used to map live action movements onto alien bodies in a manner that is supposed to be seamless and indistinguishable from actual actors.
This has me excited! I can hardly wait…until 2009 when it will be released. The title is Avatar, and you can catch it at IMDB or at Wikipedia.
