Making A Scene: Avatar - Flying With Banshees

Fox Movie Channel has released their Making a Scene segment on James Cameron's Avatar on Hulu. The ten minute segment takes a look at a scene in the film when Jake Sully and Neytiri fly together on Banshees for the first time. This just happens to be Cameron's favorite moment in the film. I did an interview with IFC at Fantastic Fest, where I raved about this sequence. To me, seeing the moment where Jake first flies on the big screen, in 3D, is magical. And no, seeing it on your computer monitor in low resolution, certainly doesn't do it justice.

The segment gives us a glimpse at the work that went on behind the scenes to create this scene. It's fine if you're not impressed by how Avatar looks, but after watching this featurette, you should at least be impressed by some of the the technical innovations and processes that were created to make this film. Watch Making a Scene: Avatar, embedded after the jump.
