Ava­tar” star­tet the 3D-Buzz in cine­mas all over the world and is still one of the most suc­cess­ful movies of all time. James Came­ron is thin­king about High Frame Rate (HRF) and Cine­ma 4K reso­lu­ti­on for the three sequels.

At the end the­re will be four Ava­tar movies. Many fans of the Ava­tar-uni­ver­se are hyped for the sequels and can’t wait to see how Came­ron will chan­ge the way we watch movies once again. The pre­pa­ra­ti­ons for the shoo­ting are in full swing and James Came­ron is alre­ady thin­king about tech­ni­cal ways to make his visi­on more rea­listic to the audi­ence.

James Came­ron: “We are still at the begin­ning. We are desi­gning the soft­ware, I’m wri­ting screen­plays, we are plan­ning all crea­tures, cha­rac­ters, envi­ron­ments. At the moment I’m not tur­ning any­thing, we are in the crea­ti­ve pha­se that will lead us to that. And it’s going real­ly well, I think the movie will be tru­ly spec­ta­cu­lar. You will see new worlds, new habi­tats, new cul­tures. The­re will always be the main con­flict bet­ween the point of view of the human domi­na­ti­on of natu­re and the Na’vi being inte­gra­ted with it, it will mani­fest its­elf in many dif­fe­rent ways.”

Shooting in Cinema 4K resolution

Came­ron thinks about shoo­ting lar­ge parts of the movie in High Frame Rate (HFR). With HFR record­ing the­re are 48 frames per second ins­te­ad of the usu­al 24. This ensu­res more flo­wing move­ments, espe­ci­al­ly in action-packed sce­nes. It is clear that Came­ron wants to shoot in 4K, which is alre­ady sup­por­ted by many movie thea­ters. Big cine­ma chains have chan­ged for some time com­ple­te­ly to digi­tal 4K sys­tems. In addi­ti­on, the sequels are defi­ni­te­ly in 3D in thea­ters. In this case, the reso­lu­ti­on would “shrink” to 2K. May­be the­re will be 4K 3D when the the first sequel comes out.

Cost of over $ 1 Billion for all 3 Sequels

Once the tech­ni­cal requi­re­ments for the new movies are crea­ted, Came­ron wants to shoot part 2, 3 and 4 of Ava­tar in one pie­ce. This is to save money and ner­ves. The total cost for the shoo­ting would amount to over $ 1 bil­li­on! It’s actual­ly not that much money, if you assu­me that the first Ava­tar movie has alre­ady cost 500 mil­li­on euros.

James Came­ron: “We look at high frame rate. I deal with it. So far I have not made a deci­si­on as to whe­ther the ent­i­re movie is shot in HFR, or just parts of it. We will now move with a natu­ral reso­lu­ti­on of 4K and when the film appears the­re should alre­ady be a lot of thea­ters that sup­port it. “
