The Way of Cameron
Born in the small Canadian town of Kapuskasing, Ontario, James Cameron’s young mind had an appetite for science fiction, reading a book a day on his trip to and from school, from HG Wells to Asimov, together with numerous magazines and a pamphlet about surviving a nuclear attack (written during the Cuban missile crisis).
When the family moved to Brea California it was the start of his journey to become one of the most successful film directors of all time, with Titanic and Avatar grossing over $2billion.
Beginning with the first film he directed, ‘Xenogenis’, budget $20,000, (which led to his training at the ‘Roger Corman Film School’), his path will be illustrated with selections from his art work, together with clips from all the films he directed, from ‘Piranha II The Spawning’ – “The best flying piranha film ever”, to his latest, ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’, via ‘Terminator’, ‘Aliens’, ‘The Abyss’, ‘T2’ and ‘True Lies’.
