    Behind the Scenes

    January 15, 2010 by Kxetse a-ean

    I came across some behind-the-scenes footage after reading the Wikipedia article about Avatar. I don't know how I missed these videos before, but I was thrilled to see some of the production footage, and especially with seeing James Cameron at work. Also part two features quite a bit of the scoring sessions with James Horner and the orchestra. A real treat, if you ask me: Behind the Scenes of Avatar at
