Filmmaker James Cameron is hoping his "Avatar" sequels will help pioneer new 3D technology, where fans wont have to wear glasses to experience the film. Avatar became the highest grossing movie ever made in large part because it wowed audiences by doing things with technology that had never been done before.
"Im going to push. Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates - the things we are working toward," Cameron said.
"Im still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen - with no glasses. Well get there."
If and when Avatar 2 ever happens, James Cameron promises he will continue to push the limits, including potentially making 3D easier to view. The director says he plans to use all the tools at his disposal to make the sequels special, including one that we don't quite have yet.
High frame rate films have been made in the past. Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, as well as Ang Lee's upcoming Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk both utilized high frame rates in their production. High Dynamic Range is actually a technology that is more commonly used in dealing with modern televisions as opposed to movie screens, but the idea of producing content capable of showing brighter whites as well as darker blacks can certainly be used to great effect in a movie theater as well.
