Jungle expedition for 'Avatar'

Jungle expedition for 'Avatar'

The Titanic director called on stars including Sigourney Weaver and Zoe Saldana to get a feel of the rainforest life, so they could play their jungle-dwelling characters in the film better.

Cameron told an entertainment magazine, “We did a sense-memory experiment in Hawaii. We trekked around the rainforest for three days, building campfires and cooking fish, trying to live tribally.”

And Saldana insists Cameron’s pre-filming jungle expedition was a great idea. “That experience helped us so much. Sigourney, Sam and I were shooting the movie on a regular cement floor on a soundstage, but we needed to know what it was like to walk in a jungle world and what that felt like.”
