James Cameron’s Avatar is still 17 months away, yet with every small bit of news my anticipation rises. Cameron spoke to THR about the filming process, and said it was the most challenging film he has ever made.
When completed, Cameron expects “Avatar” to be about 60% CG animation, based on characters created using a newly developed performance capture-based process, and 40% live action, with a lot of VFX in the imagery.
“It is the most challenging film I’ve ever made,” Cameron said.
Still, the innovative filmmaker and digital 3-D pioneer and champion has never shifted his emphasis from storytelling.
“You have to make a good film that would be a good film under any circumstances,” he said. “You have to put the narrative first. The reality is no matter how many (3-D) screens we get, you are still going to have a large number of people — possibly the majority of people — who see the film in a 2-D environment.”

We haven’t had anything officially released yet. No footage, no images, nothing. I don’t expect we will get a teaser trailer until at least 90% of the footage is complete. Cameron wouldn’t put out anything that is half finished.
