Ok, we are all waiting to see the Avatar Movie... and until December 18th there is not much for us to do besides wait and browse around for some new images, posters or any other detail about the movie. You may like this whole avatar deal or not, but you need to agree that this movie is a HUGE technological production! Being a fan that is counting the days to watch it, being a major nerd, being a curious to check out the effects and stuff or being a regular cinema lover, you all need to see the film, at least to have your own opinion about it.
I have to say that first I din't like the idea that much, but after seeing all the trailers, details, production and effects around it I got really curious to check out the final result, so for sure on December 18th I will be in a theater somewhere to do it!! I think their whole idea of doing a character that is 'the mirror' of the actors performance is really cool cause this way the Avatar almost look real, at least to me they do. :)
Well, enough talking... check out this selection I made to show you more about the movie while we are all waiting! Enjoy.
"I had the idea of this movie back in 95, but at that time it turned out that it wasn't technically possible to do what I wanted to do. So I literally put the project in a drawer and forgot about it. About 4 years ago I got it out to find out if it was already possible to do it." James Cameron
"This is not an animated film, it is all captured performance." James Cameron
"Every tiny bit of the performance that you see on the screen was created by the actors. They had to run, they had to fight and jump, all the things that you see in the film, they were doing it physically, they were not doing just voice performance." James Cameron
Video - Behind the Scenes
Really cool video showing how they did some of the action and flight scenes. They also explain how they taped the actors facial interpretation to 'transmit' it to the avatar and several other details.
