When it comes to pushing the technical barriers, James Cameron is widely considered to be the most groundbreaking director of all time. His ambitious plan for filming the Avatar sequels back to back is slowly paying off. For many, working with the director of iconic films such as Aliens, The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Titanic and of course, Avatar, is a pipe-dream. We spoke to Jack Champion at the Avatar: The Way of Water Canadian premiere and when we asked what it’s like to work with James Cameron, here’s what he said.
