About the movie "Avatar"

The special version of the picture included an additional 8-minute episode, which will present the new inhabitants of the planet Pandora.

In frame

Jake Sully, a former Marine, chained to a wheelchair, is tasked with traveling to a base of earthlings on the planet Pandora, where a rare mineral is mined, which is of great importance for the Earth's escape from the energy crisis. Because Pandora's air is toxic, the Avatar program was created, in which people's minds connect to an avatar - a remote-control hybrid derived from human DNA and Na'vi DNA, the indigenous inhabitants of Pandora. Jake's mission is to destroy the Na'vi, which became an obstacle to mining the mineral.

Behind the scenes

The idea of ​​the film came to the head of James Cameron in the middle of 90x. In 1995, he wrote an 80-page script, but the means to implement what was born in his imagination, then did not exist. The source of inspiration for Cameron was "science fiction books he read as a child," in particular Edgar Rice Burroughs (John Carter-Martian) and Paul Anderson's "Call Me Joe."

In 2006, the script was rewritten: with linguist and director of the Communication Management Center of the University of Southern California, Paul Frommer, Cameron developed a whole language and culture for Na'vi, the indigenous race of Pandora.

In the film, Cameron used his own technology 3D-shooting "Reality Camera System" with two high-resolution cameras. Also, the technology of motion capture - the capture of special sensors by movements of actors and their subsequent digital processing. At the same time, the efficiency of the capture stage was six times greater than that used before, which made it possible to detect the expressions of actors' faces. Also, a technology was developed that allowed during the filming to see on the screen monitors virtual characters along with live actors.

Non-virtual scenery includes: a communication room where similarities of sarcophagi are established, with the help of which the human consciousness is transferred to the body of the avatar, the Biology laboratory, the Control Center and the military bastion of Armor Bay, where the heavy mobility suits and helicopters are kept.

Quotes

"This is a fantastic story happening on a distant planet - an old-fashioned adventure in the jungle with an atmospheric environment where events begin to reach the mythical level of the narrative" (James Cameron)

Another film from the unique James Cameron. My favorite director, because he creates his films completely from the beginning to the end. It is his perfectionist quality that creates masterpieces from films. Avatar is one of them. The very beautiful nature created by Cameron on the planet Pandora can not leave any spectator indifferent. The scene from which I had goose bumps is the fall of a huge tree. It is a masterpiece!

Not the best film with a simple plot, but exorbitant ambitions.

Mr. Cameron once again created a worthy creation. The beauty of filming is amazing, the unrealizable desire of course to see it all alive. The ideological context is also vobschem then there ... Which can be interpreted as "There is nothing in a strange monastery with its statute shastat." Scenes of flying on "birds" fascinate, as a whole the whole nature ... In a word - Beauty

A low bow to James Cameron for this great film! Created by him Pandora is something incredible. Very beautiful nature, fascinating views and interesting inhabitants. And when you see the planet at night, you want to immediately go there, see it and touch it.
For someone, Avatar is a soulless blue special effect, and for me a masterpiece!
