Avatar 2’s filming Begins: Producer Jon Landau unveils
The shooting resumes after two months due to the pandemic
A couple of months ago, due to the pandemic restrictions and precautions, movie Avatar 2 suspended its production.
This week, Oscar winning producer Jon Landau announced on Twitter about the resume of the filming of the great science fiction sequel ‘Avatar 2’ in New Zealand.
“Our Avatar sets are ready — and we couldn’t be more excited to be headed back to New Zealand next week. Check out the Matador, a high-speed forward command vessel (bottom) and the Picador jetboat (top) — can’t wait to share more.” The picture posted by the producer featured the set of the movie consisting of some huge ships as detailed by the producer.
The director of the sequel of Avatar is James Cameron, who has given his best always to put up the things nicely.
Jon took the credit of posting a picture of Cameron directing on the sets of Avatar 2. He wrote, “A behind the scenes still of Jim giving the actors direction before they dive underwater to capture performances for a scene from the Avatar sequels. What is the white stuff on the water surface? They are small white balls that are needed to prevent the lights from above contaminating the performance capture system below… while still allowing anyone below to surface safely through them should the need arise.”
The film’s shooting will take place in New Zealand where the pandemic could not spread widely due to the restrict confinement in a small island area.
Earlier, Landau also posted a picture where the cast of Avatar 2, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Kate Winslet, and Cliff Curtis were seen in the film’s custom 900,000- gallon water tank. You must be thinking what these white balls are for? They are used to block light from above when doing underwater motion-capture filming.
Few more pictures are revealed by the production which seems to explore the oceans of Pandora.
