I think some are people coming away surprised, for better or for worse, at what James Cameron has done. What was the experience of working on it like?
Avatar was one of the most uplifting, educational, incredible experiences I’ve ever had as a movie maker. Jim Cameron is truly a genius. Aside from him being a genius, he’s also a storyteller that you cannot deny — one of the greatest you’re going to find out there. And he takes the time with the actors, too. He doesn’t rush them at all. And he really cares about what they have to say, how they’re going to perform it, and he gives them the time to work it out before they even do the scene. I was truly impressed by him and the movie. The marriage of green screen, live action, and motion capture was truly one of the most painstaking efforts I’ve ever had to do when it comes to a motion capture, but in the long run, I think it paid off. You’ll see some of the most realistic motion capture, if not the most realistic, the movie industry has ever seen.
