The Making of Avatar,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Making of Avatar (Hardcover)
A comprehensive account of a most remarkable film for film buffs everwhere. It beggars belief that James Cameron did not receive an Osacr as best director, when this book gives you glimpse of his vision and involvement in all aspects of the films production.
The book goes into great detail about the use of the virtual camera and the processes of getting the actors performance to screen. However, I feel too much of the book is given over to photos of the actors with their dotted suits that becomes a bit repetitive. Pesonally I would have preferred to see more of the matt painting and concept art by the digital artists, but this is only a minor criticism as I really enjoyed the book. As someone else pointed out the pictures are not quite top notch, but that might be a concession by the publishers to saving the environment, since that is the major premise of the film itself.
Don't let my slightly less than enthusiastic review put anyone off buying this book, as it is an entertaining and interesting read.
