A good friend of MarketSaw and soon to be contributor Michael Stat and I thought we would give you a couple of "Avatar" findings that have surfaced recently that may be of interest to you.
1. Colin Moy speaks briefly to the New Zealand Herald about his role as an Engineer in "Avatar":
"Cameron, with huge movies such as Titanic and the Alien series under his belt, has a reputation for having a huge ego but Moy was surprised to find he was a very sympathetic director. "He turned out to be a real actor's director who was very friendly but also very precise," he says. "Even though I only had a small part, playing an engineer, he asked my opinion about the character. He was a real perfectionist which I think is why he has a reputation for being tough."What Michael and I love about this the underscoring of hope for a repeat of Titanic or Aliens, where every character, no matter how minor, is memorable.
2. Here is some fan art from Xia Taptara (Seattle) who spawned an interpretation of what the Na'vi (inhabitants of Pandora) will look like. He uses Adobe Photoshop CS2 and a Wacom Intuos3 6X8 Pen Tablet.
Not bad at all! And YES we are working hard on getting the latest developments - we have to keep our reputation intact as being the go to site for all things Avatar!
