Avatar "Making a Scene" Video: How to Fly a Banshee

Michael here. This episode of Behind The Scenes from the Fox Movie Channel showcases James Cameron's favorite scene in Avatar: Jake and Neytiri's first banshee flight together. It is tremendously fascinating to watch the level of complexity that goes into such a thing as banshee flying.

You get some great looks at the capture volume, the head-mounted rigs, and Cameron using the virtual camera and piloting a toylike model banshee. It's a must-see video:

I thought I had seen enough featurettes, but this one is essential viewing for any fan of Avatar and the tech that went into creating a new planet.

It's amazing to think how close we are to December 18. It's beginning to feel kind of surreal, actually.
