AVATAR, the highest-grossing film of all time, moves from the cinema to Liberty Science Center's exhibition halls in the NY/NJ-area premiere of AVATAR: The Exhibition. The hands-on exhibition is available exclusively to members of the media and LSC Members from 2/9-2/15 before opening to the public 2/16-5/19.
According to director James Cameron, "The exhibition will be a unique opportunity for people to learn more not only about how the film was made, but also experience Pandora in a much deeper way. Fans will be able to see in-person the workmanship behind the film, whether it's how scenes are captured, or how a Na'vi costume was built first as a real-world garment then produced digitally."
The exhibition's interactives explore the creation of Pandora as well as three emerging technologies that contributed to AVATAR's stunning realism: performance capture (advanced motion capture), the virtual camera, and the Simulcam.
"Fans of the film and those yet to see it will be amazed by the many ways science and technology contributed to its success," said Paul Hoffman, president and CEO of Liberty Science Center.
