James Cameron sure knows how to hype a movie, at least in technical terms. He claims that making Titanic was a picnic compared to Avatar. If Titanic was a picnic, what can we then expect from Avatar?

Hypening up the excitement for his latest feature film project “Avatar”, director James Cameron talked about what he thinks of the sci-fi thriller movie by comparing it to his previous prominent work, “Titanic”. During an interview in Los Angeles, he revealed as quoted by Andrea Baillie of The Canadian Press, “It makes Titanic look like a picnic.”

Working on the film using the blending of live-action photography and new virtual photorealistic production techniques, Cameron further confessed, “It’s simultaneously the most vexing and the most rewarding type of production that I’ve done yet.”

On the new filming techniques, he commented, “It’s this form of pure creation where…if you want to move a tree or a mountain or the sky or change the time of day, you have complete control over the elements and the production design.”
