‘Avatar’ sequels will have underwater motion capture


The sequels to ‘Avatar’ will have underwater motion capture. 'Avatar' director James Cameron is willing to present something very visually dramatic and hence he plans to include underwater scenes in ‘Avatar 2’ and ‘Avatar 3’.

It will be partly shot in planet Pandora's deep oceans to make the visuals more attractive, according to producer Jon Landeau. Landau said James Cameron proposed to make use of the process "because we can simulate it visually but can't simulate it experientially for them".

Cameron, who has been busy drafting the movie's script, is enjoying working on the project.

"I'm deep into it and I'm living in Pandora right now. There is that start up torque where you feel it's coming to you. Then you build up momentum. That's when it gets fun. The characters talk and it's writing itself. I'm almost there right now. It's building fast," contactmusic.com quoted Cameron as saying.

"We want to take advantage of the technologies brilliant people are putting out to make the next two movies even more emotionally engaging and visually tantalising, and to really wrap up the story arc of our two main characters," Landau said on Sunday in a keynote speech at the 2013 NAB Technology Summit on Cinema in Las Vegas.

‘Avatar’ is the highest grossing film of all time.
