Listen to James Cameron Discuss His Career In Recent 50-Minute Conversation

Written by on June 20, 2014 


Regardless of how one feels about the work of James Cameron, it’s difficult to deny his filmmaking bravado, pushing technology forward and setting a new bar for scope with each new feature. Earlier this month he stopped by the 5th annual Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood to discuss his process, early beginnings, the future, and much more. A few weeks later the full audio has now arrived for one’s listening pleasures.

Before he talks about his breakthrough Terminator, and how he cast Arnold Schwarzenegger, he recalls a time before he was box-office king. “I was a sad, dark, isolated human being,” he says. “There was an innocence to it in a funny way. I was the anonymous, angry wannabe filmmaker, and I think there’s some courage to say whatever comes into your head…. I was a free voice in the wilderness. Most people hate that period of their life, and then you spend the rest of your career trying to get back there.”

He also dives into how he helped write three forthcoming Avatar films simultaneously and his involvement in the upcoming Terminator film, which is currently in production. One can check out the full 50-minute conversation, hosted by Rebecca Keegan, below courtesy of Jeff Goldsmith‘s must-listen podcast, The Q&A.
