Here's the video of the TED Talk James Cameron gave last month at TED2010, in Long Beach, CA.
Of course Cameron talks about his films like Avatar, Titanic, Terminator and The Abyss, but he reveals some pretty in depth stories about his childhood and his aspirations that haven't really been covered in interviews.
The lectures, or TED Talks have a strict 18-minute limit, and Cameron runs just a little under. Most of the people asked to give TED Talks usually have a PHD or are the top person in their field. But Cameron isn't the only film director asked to give a lecture this year, District 9's Neill Blomkamp also gave a TED Talk, which we posted early last month.
Check out the lecture and let us know what you think!
TED's Description About the Talk:
James Cameron's big-budget (and even bigger-grossing) films create unreal worlds all their own. In this personal talk, he reveals his childhood fascination with the fantastic -- from reading science fiction to deep-sea diving -- and how it ultimately drove the success of his blockbuster hits "Aliens," "The Terminator," "Titanic" and "Avatar."
