James Cameron is known to be a pioneer of new technology, and he’s never shied away from his love of experimenting with new things when it comes to how the audience watches a movie. It looks like that trend will continue with the future of his “Avatar” franchise.
While accepting an honorary membership from the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, Cameron said he hoped to push the boundary of watching movies with his sequels.
"I’m going to push. Not only for better tools, workflow, high dynamic range and high frame rates, the things we are working toward," he said. "I’m still very bullish on 3D, but we need brighter projection, and ultimately I think it can happen, with no glasses. We’ll get there."
As most of us know, “Avatar” was incredibly successful for 3D, and helped push the format to become the conventional way to watch blockbuster movies for several years. Now, it looks like Cameron is trying to do the same, although this time without glasses. While High Frame Rate has been a convention directors have been toying with for some time, it will be interesting to see if Cameron can successfully get a 3D experience on screen without the use of glasses, for the first time.
