On the heels of his announcement that he’s donating the high-tech deep-sea submarine that took him 7 miles under the Western Pacific, James Cameron also let slip a few more details about 3D film of the record-breaking voyage.

“‘The Deepsea Challenge’ is coming out this fall,” the 58-year-old filmmaker/explorer told Reuters. “You go on the journey. It’s about the team of these young guys and how they tackled the problems and overcame a lot of hurdles and set-backs. They got to see some pretty amazing stuff and got to bring back the footage in 3D. You’ll feel like you’ve been through the whole thing, including actually diving inside the sub. I was jammed into this 42-inch (106 centimeter) sphere with all this equipment and a 3D camera with me at all time.”

Cameron goes on to add that much of the technology his team helps develop for his ocean exploration projects eventually wind up being used throughout Hollywood.

“The odds are other filmmakers will use this technology before me because my company, Cameron Pace Group, supplies cameras to most of the big movies that are shooting in 3D,” he says. “We develop something new, I use it on an expedition, and while I go off and write and design and fool around in pre-production, five other movies have gone out and used the cameras in the meantime. That was the case even when I had made “Avatar,” a number of other films had already used those cameras.”

How ironic that we celebrate a denial of animal value with a competition making a value judgment against the bodies of young women.
