It is one thing to be a good film maker, but to go to such lengths for authenticity,awesome!

“The film director James Cameron was today described as a real-life Avatar after he returned safely from a one-man mission to the Mariana Trench, the deepest point of Earth’s oceans.

Cameron emerged from his 12-tonne, lime green submarine, Deepsea Challenger, early this morning after travelling nearly seven miles down to the desert-like bottom of the trench. His ship was equipped with 3D cameras to shoot footage for a planned documentary, using lighting from a spectacular eight-foot tower of LEDs. The director of Titanic andAvatar, who has maintained a long-term interest in the secrets of the oceans’ depths, was able to direct and film the action from within the sub.

“There is scientific value in getting stereo images because … you can determine the scale and distance of objects from stereo pairs that you can’t from 2D images,” Cameron told National Geographic News ahead of the dive. As he reached the bottom of the trench, which is about 200 miles south-west of the Pacific island of Guam, Cameron sent out a tweet reading: “Just arrived at the ocean’s deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can’t wait to share what I’m seeing w/ you”.
