As if he didn’t have enough on his plate.
In between development on the next two “Avatar” sequels and an expedition to film in the deepest part of the oceans (as well as various other environmental initiatives), James Cameron will also now also be a National Geographic “Explorer-in-Residence”.
The director was honored today, along with marine ecologist Enric Sala, at a special gathering of National Geographic’s top explorers at Society headquarters. According to the NatGeo site, Cameron will “apply his distinctive storytelling skills and innovative filmmaking technologies to National Geographic Society projects and programs.”
Cameron and Sala are the first new EIRs since 2005. More info here.
