James Cameron is the writer for the famous movie, Avatar.  Cameron is building up energy on writing the scripts for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3.  Although the plot isn’t known, Cameron know that some of the second film will take place underwater.  While it’s possible to shoot dry-for-wet, it’s not all that persuading, and as we can all tell, Cameron is always up for a technological challenge.  The producer of Avatar Jon Landau revealed that:

 

We have kept a team of digital artists on from Avatar in order to test how we can create performance capture underwater.  We could simulate water [in CG], but we can’t simulate the actor’s experience, so we are going to capture performance in a tank.

Landau did not provide any further information on the development of that process, but he included that Avatar 2 and will be shot back-to-back which will conclude the story of will wrap up the story of Jake (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana).
