Avatar 2 animators tricked James Cameron into believing some shots were practical

Much of Avatar: The Way of Water’s rub-your-eyes-in-disbelief magic stems from its ability to convincingly blur the practical and the digital – and the animators at Wētā FX did such a good job in that department that director James Cameron was often duped into approving entirely computer-generated shots.  In an exclusive interview with TechRadar, Daniel Barrett, Senior Animation Supervisor at the New Zealand-based visual effects company, revealed that he and his team were sometimes forced to side-step Cameron’s desire to keep things as practical as possible in order to maintain…

Announced as part of its Q4 2022 earnings report, Netflix revealed it’ll start rolling out its paid sharing feature “more broadly” in Q1 2023. In simple terms?
