Surprise! James Cameron Is Making Realer Than Real Pictures

We like the idea that when James Cameron heard the term “cinéma vérité” he thought that it meant literally making real life. In any case, we game fans like watching film directors quixotic quest for verisimilitude as it matches game designers dogged obsession with realism. In any case, Cameron is apparently upping the bar for everyone with his next Avatar movies:

As evidence of his belief in increasing frame rates, Cameron said he ”fully intends” to make Avatar 2 and 3 at higher rates and is looking seriously at 48 and 60 frames per second. ”When you author and project a movie at 48 or 60, it becomes a different movie,” he said. “The 3D shows you a window into reality; the higher frame rate takes the glass out of the window. In fact, it is just reality. It is really stunning.”
