Tech Noir: The Art of James Cameron Summary

Tech Noir: The Art of James Cameron by James Cameron

James Cameron has blazed a trail through the cinematic landscape with a series of groundbreaking films that have each become deeply embedded in the popular imagination. But while Cameron has created and employed advanced filmmaking technologies to realize his unique vision, his process of creative ideation began with pen, pencil and paints long before he picked up a camera. Inspired by his mother, an artist, Cameron displayed remarkable ability at an early age, filling sketchbooks with illustrations of alien creatures, faraway worlds, and technological wonders. As he grew older, his art became increasingly sophisticated, exploring major themes that would imbue his later work-from the threat of nuclear catastrophe to the dangers inherent in the development of artificial intelligence, to a fascination with ecology that would foreshadow his storied career in science and exploration. Working in the film industry in his early twenties, Cameron supported himself by illustrating theatrical posters and concept art for low-budget films before creating the visionary concept pieces that would help greenlight his first major feature, The Terminator. For the first time, Tech Noir brings together a dazzling and diverse array of personal and commercial art from Cameron's own collection, showing the trajectory of ideas which led to such modern classics as The Terminator, Aliens, Titanic and Avatar. Starting with his earliest sketches through to unrealized projects and to his later work, the book features the filmmaker's personal commentary on his creative and artistic evolution throughout the years. A unique journey into the mind of a singular creative powerhouse, Tech Noir is a true publishing event and the ultimate exploration of one of cinema's most imaginative innovators.
