    Virtual production and higher frame rate dominated the conversation at this week’s SIGGRAPH conference in LA, just as they did at FMX earlier in the year. Despite Warner Bros. scaling back on the number of screens that it will play “The Hobbit” at 48 fps on December 14...

    James Cameron's 'Titanic,' Then and Now, in 3-D: "A Window Into a World"

    Count on James Cameron. Looking at "Titanic" in its glorious $18-million 3-D restoration--released (also in 2-D) on the 100th anniversary of the sad night the great ship went down--I was reminded of what a huge accomplishment the picture was back in 1997.

    Media Watch: No Cameron 'Prometheus' In Sight; Deadline Falls for April Fool's Prank

    Beware of April Fool's announcements. (I loved FoxLA's story about drought-ridden California farmers planting marshmallow trees, below.)

    Cameron Unveils Titanic 3-D Footage for April 2012 Release, Talks 3-D, Exploration, Avatar

    James Cameron loves 3-D. He’s believed in it from the beginning—in fact, he’s personally responsible for the entire industry’s move toward 3-D, I was reminded at a Popular Mechanics high-rise lunch in Hearst Tower before Cameron accepted one of the magazine’s 2011 Breakthrough Awards (video of his Q & A, which digs into the Avatar sequels, and acceptance speech is below).
