James Cameron - James Cameron Taking 3d Filmmaking Technology To China
Avatar director James Cameron is taking his expertise in 3D filming to China to teach other moviemakers how to take advantage of the groundbreaking technology.
Cameron's 3D sci-fi epic became the highest-grossing film in Hollywood history in 2009, taking more than $2.7 billion worldwide.
He has been busy working on a second Avatar film, which will be set underwater and released in 2015, and now Cameron is set to share his knowledge with others after launching a new branch of his company, Cameron Pace Group, titled Cpg China Division.
Cameron, who recently gave his hit movie Titanic a 3D makeover too, tells Reuters, "We're not going to tell Chinese film makers how to make movies. We are going to help them make a transition to 3D production technology as cost effectively as possible, and in a way that doesn't inhibit creativity."
The new venture is an investment deal with state-owned film distributor Tianjin North Film Group and Tianjin Hi-tech Holding Group.
