[Movies] Avatar Getting Its Own Science Exhibit
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.29.2013



IGN reports that the New Jersey Liberty Science Center is set to debut Avatar: The Exhibition.

The announcement says the event will explore the creation of the film's Pandora "as well as three emerging technologies that contributed to Avatar's stunning realism: performance capture (advanced motion capture), the virtual camera, and the Simulcam."

Cameron said: "The exhibition will be a unique opportunity for people to learn more not only about how the film was made, but also experience Pandora in a much deeper way. Fans will be able to see in-person the workmanship behind the film, whether it's how scenes are captured, or how a Na'vi costume was built first as a real-world garment then produced digitally."

The exhibits include the following options for visitors:

- Jump into the film via the Motion-Capture Stage
- See themselves rendered as animated Avatars at the Performance Capture Interactive
- Direct a scene using a hand-held monitor similar to Cameron's virtual camera system
- Listen to and learn the Na'vi language
- Develop a new type of plant using the same design process used by the filmmakers
- Experiment with sound to set the mood of a scene in the film
- View elaborate displays of artifacts and props such as the actual AMP (Armored Mobility Platform) suit used in combat scenes, soldier uniforms, and the original hand-made models of the Na'vi characters

The exhibit opens to the public on February 16 and runs through May 19.
