Geeking Out with Cameron at the 3D Summit

I interviewed James Cameron for my Immersed in Movies column at indieWIRE’s  TOH. We spoke about 3-D for the Avatar sequels and just announced Disney theme park attraction, as well as the Titanic conversion. Cameron and tech partner Vince Pace spoke at the 3D Entertainment Summit this week in Hollywood, suggesting that the business model is working just fine despite some growing pains and speed bumps.

Meanwhile, Pace is continuing to improve the technology. He’s developing a smart rig (taking the focus puller and interocular guy out of the picture) while still working with manufacturers to create faster, lighter, and smarter digital cameras. He recently worked on Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, and came away refreshed at the emotional spectacle.
