Avatar director James Cameron has agreed to take a new 3D movie Cirque du soleil. It will be the ultimate show in the world.
If you had an opportunity to watch Cirque du Soleil in person, you will be more cheered about the chance to see it in 3D. The movie features the team’s colorful stagecraft and daredevil adventures.
Deadline.com reports specify that Cameron has signed up to make the 3D Cirque. There is also news that Andrew Adamson will join the Avatar director to make a 3D movie. This promises to be a hybrid combination. Cirque performances and narrative storytelling in 3D will offer more different experience than the Cirque shows in Las Vegas.
Cameron, the producer of this new 3D movie will be joined by Cary Granat (Reel FX entertainment), Ed Jones, Aron Warner and the team of Cirque de soleil.
Cameron is one of the talented blockbuster movie directors of the last 30 years. His Piranha II, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Titanic and Avatar has created a new wave in the movie making trend.
James Cameron is developing the digital 3D fusion camera system with some others.
Andrew Adamson is renowned for his family classics like Shrek and Shrek 2. He has received an Academy Award nomination for this.
Adamson was director, scriptwriter and executive producer for the reworked movie of The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
James Cameron and his team may be getting all the credit of innovating the 3D high watermark technology, but it is believed that the Nazis had got to the technology way before anyone could even imagine about it. Philippe Mora the ace Australian film maker has stated that he has come across two 3D films which are 30 minutes in length each that were shot in the year 1936 for the Third Reich. This proves that the Nazis had discovered this technology 16 years before the rest of the world came to know about it.
The first film is titled ‘So Real You Can Touch It’. This film features a barbeque with stereoscopic bratwursts on it. ‘Six Girls Roll Into Weekend’ is the second film and it features actors who were considered to be the best during the wartime. Moral also confirmed that the quality of both the film is simply superb. Mora also said that the Nazis seem to be obsessed with video recording of every single event and this also played a major role in enabling them to control the people and the country the way they did.
The films were discovered by Mora while doing some research on how the Nazis made use of films in order to manipulate the Germans. Eventhough the fact that John Norling and Joseph Leventhal won the Oscars in the year 1936 for their short film, stereoscopic films failed to make an impact in Hollywood until the year 1953 when House of Wax was released.
Mora also believes that this discovery states that the Germans were way ahead from the rest of the world when it came to technology. Mora also believes that there would be more such footage hidden in some part of Germany from the Third Reich. Mora has also made a film in the year 1973 titled ‘Swastika’. The film was the colour footage of some of the private home movies that were made in the Bavarian alps by Hitler and Eva Braun who was his partner.

Well, it looks like not only has 3D re-joined the ranks of cinema, but it could be taking over permanently. When James Cameron sat back and watched the 3D success of his smash hit “Avatar”, he noticed that the technology will not only stick around for a while, but possible take the film industry by storm. Headlining the Cameron-Pace Group, James Cameron is looking to encourage film-makers, game designers, and broadcasters to utilize the 3D technology to push every aspect of the business to new heights.
Cameron expects to see a complete conversion in both the commercial cinema and home theatre markets in the next 3-5 years. As directors and game developers begin to use the budding 3D market, many seek to discredit any notions that the movement is going to last. Numbers from the box-office last year suggested that maybe the craze was starting to die down, but with 3 of the top 5 movies in the world using the stereoscopic 3D element, those hoping to see an end to the medium may find themselves out of luck.

The Harry Potter series is getting the 3D makeover that many have come to expect for any blockbuster series. Just as the world readies itself for the “final” installment to hit theatres, Warner Bros. has announced that they will be re-releasing the entire series into theatres everywhere. Wait, so you’re actually going to sell audiences the same movie, just this time in 3D? How original…
I’m as excited to check out the films as the next guy, but we’re getting used to this kind of news. We’ve already heard about Lucas bringing Star Wars back (which is going to be awesome) and James Cameron bringing Titanic back for a 3D makeover (eh…). Either way, films getting a taste of the new medium will likely be killer.
So, keep your eyes peeled for the new 3D releases, and get ready to stand in line (again) to be the first to check it out. However, as you’re paying for your ticket and popcorn be sure to notice that very well-dressed gajillionaire in the corner…he works for Warner Bros., and he’s very happy you came back…

James Cameron has teamed up with Vince Pace creating a company that will help anyone looking to make movies deliver them to audiences in 3D. By selling and leasing 3D cameras, it seems that the Avatar director believes that the future of filmmaking is upon us, and is looking to seize the opportunity.
Due to his belief that all movie and television productions will have 2D and 3D versions, Cameron is working on a format that will allow 2D and 3D production to be simultaneous when shooting live events. Interesting, huh? They call the system “The Shadow”, and the Masters golf tourney in Augusta, GA already tested the technology.
Later in his interview, Cameron talks about full and half-resolution 3D experiences. He believes that anything more than half is overkill when considering a home entertainment setup. Wait, what? He continues to discuss the technological differences between active and passive 3D technology, but in the end, settles on the fact that certain drawbacks shouldn’t deter consumers from electing to leave a bit on the table in terms of resolution.
He never came right out and said that passive technology is good enough, but that seems to be where his thoughts are heading. In the meantime, there are plenty of tech gurus out there working on the resolution issues, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled. This issue won’t be going away anytime soon…in fact, due to Cameron’s involvement, it seems that it’s just getting going!
