Spider scenes of “Avatar: The way of water” had to be shot twice
Meanwhile, speaking in an interview with Vanity Fair, Cameron had reflected on the making of spider scenes of “Avatar: The way of water” adding, “The beauty was, we got to do it twice.
So [cinematographer] Russ [Carpenter] would light the scene, so everything that we did with Jack photographically, we did previously with him in terms of capture. Jack did his entire performance twice, once for all the other actors like Sigourney and Britain [Dalton] and Sam, so that he was there kind of off camera.
And he was like 13 at the time. And then later when we shot, he was 15, so he changed in size and vocal range a bit, but we capped him and then we had these capture scenes”. “Avatar: The Way of Water” is expected to pass the “Avenger: Infinity war” as early as this weekend which would make the movie the first $2-billion-dollar film in a pandemic-era new normalcy.
