Avatar Video Interviews
Sigourney: My character runs the Avatar program which is exploring this fantastic planet where there is a group of native people called Na’vi. And the humans on the base are there to sort of rape their planet and take this metal in the Na’vi are of course naturally rebelling against this. So the young man gets caught up in this whole conflict but also falls in love beautifully, extraordinary woman Na’vi played by Zoe Saldna.
Zoe: I never spend so much time on a film set with a project living with a character and working so intimately with a director like James Cameron. And with a actors like Sigourney Weaver and primarily Sam Worthington, so I think that every film I would’ve done would’ve that kind of time. A freedom, it would’ve been just deep an experience as this was.
Steven: You know it was creating in Ed Garage Burrows and overall of something because he was this incredibly wondrous world that was being described. I love Tolkien right and all my life I figured this would make a great movie that will never be made. Because it can’t be made and then Peter Jackson made it and he made the better as well as it could be made.
James: We were hanging back you know waiting to see that the computer generated effects to get brought to a more mature level before we started this film. And when I saw the Lord of the Rings the second film, you know where Gollum has that conversation with himself and I thought we can do this. We can do Avatar, if they can do that, we do Avatar.
Sam: Is it a detail to this world and you know that I haven’t seen before in a motion capture movie. And you forget that you are in the 3D movie, you forget that you are watching a performance captured provided character. And even that they are blue, and that’s the experience of it.
Sigourney: I think you are more than any other experience I can think of you are going --. And you are going to space travel, this is not your mother’s 3D, this is not something where you are going like this in your chair. You are it is all around you, even in the serious scenes, you are in the best sit in the house.
Steven: I was absolutely stunned and by the brilliance of the whole thing. But I can’t say I was totally surprised because I feel I have been there for the two and a half years anyway.
Sam: It is the experience that is the thing he always said to me want to bring people back to the cinema. And no, I got quite little know on, I think when you caught it on your web site that saying, well you shouldn’t watch in a small screen – you watch on a big screen. You do I just play them at a computer game, could you get me one at T.V that was 3D. So in this movie alone it forced be moving out 3D televisions, so starting in something it is an evolution of something.
Sigourney: People who really are going to look into in the future who can see how revolutionary James Cameron’s techniques are because. It is all based on the actors but the audience won’t be aware of anything more than being in this other world I think.
Same: It goes like because it is a magical world and it has its romance. Boys will go to like in the kick ass action scene at the end.
