If the first episode of the saga had already revolutionized the way we make a movie, Avatar 2 could well go much further.
In 2009, the movie Avatar arrived in theaters, revolutionizing the way in which one could perceive the film. First mainstream film to really exploit the possibilities of 3D, it bore the imprint of James Cameron. 15 years earlier, he was already dreaming of this film, but the technology simply did not exist yet. Now that over a decade has passed by there, the innovations seen in Avatar, are almost become common. But, this does not mean that the next four movies, which should be out before 2030 will not be full of surprises on the beautiful Pandora.
Avatar 2 could (again) revolutionize the image
This is Geoff Burdick, vice-president of the technology office of Lightstorm Entertainment, the company of James Cameron, who is entrusted on the new technologies that will be used on the occasion of the film.
He thus explains that ” the technology has made leaps forward since the last Avatar, to all points of view “. Very concretely, the shooting of the film is done ” with a resolution more important than for the first film, with a frame rate higher, and always in 3D “.
Our facility is undoubtedly revolutionary, from the point of view of what we are capable of doing high definition and stereo… All that to render service to the vision of the director.
Among the scenes that should appeal to the general public, we find the sequences underwater. The water world of Pandora will be one of those that will be widely explored. This, however, poses new challenges from a point of view of the underwater world.
The problem with the water, this is not so much the underwater part as the interface between water and air, which form a mirror moving. It reflects all the points and the sensors, it creates a whole set of false markers. It is a bit like a fighter who would throw bales of straw to plant the radar of a missile. We had to find a way to work around this problem.
To successfully shoot the most realistic way possible, the specialists of the special effects would have covered the water of small balls made of white plastic, capable of attenuating the reflection sensors. The movie is expected for December 2021. And the purpose of it ? To do better than Avengers Endgme.
