Avatar: Modern Art
BBC News' Click has posted a short video of some of the special effects needed for James Cameron's epic fantasy movie Avatar, which is more than 50% computer aided graphics. Ignore the hype and watch truly modern art. Anyone who thinks Saatchi is leading the field in modern art needs to view this video and think again. He promotes old-fashioned tripe that requires no artistic talent. The graphics for Avatar are groundbreaking. The 3D effect isn't viewable on the video, but you get a glimpse of how it was achieved. This graphic shows Zoe Saldana as Neytiri.
