Academy Award-Winning Filmmaker, Explorer & CEO
James Cameron is an acclaimed film-maker, explorer and environmental advocate. As director, writer and producer, he is responsible for some of the most memorable films of the past three decades: THE TERMINATOR, ALIENS, THE ABYSS, TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, TRUE LIES, TITANIC, AVATAR and AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER. During the last 23 years, Cameron has developed cutting-edge 3D camera systems for movies and documentaries, as well as for broadcast sports and special events. He was at the vanguard of the 3D renaissance that has transformed the movie industry. Cameron has also developed unprecedented deep ocean exploration vehicles, lighting and 3D camera equipment. In 2012, Cameron led his eighth deep ocean expedition to some of the deepest trenches in the world and set the world’s solo deep diving record of 35,787’ in a vehicle of his own design, the DEEPSEA CHALLENGER. Cameron is a National Geographic Explorer at Large, and recipient of its most prestigious award, the Hubbard Medal, as well as the Explorer’s Club medal for Explorer of the Year. Cameron is passionately dedicated to sustainability, having founded the Avatar Alliance Foundation to take action on climate change, deforestation, indigenous rights, ocean conservation and sustainable agriculture. He has been 100% vegan for 10 years for environmental reasons. The AVATAR sequels' production was the first entirely vegan-catered motion picture set, and was dedicated to being as green and sustainable as possible. It was powered by a 1 megawatt solar array installed on the studio roofs for that purpose.
