Cameron Pace Group Opens Office in China
"Avatar" director James Cameron and 3-D photography guru Vince Pace's company Cameron-Pace Group has announced that it will set up a China headquarters in the city of Tianjin, a move to promote stereoscopic 3D technologies among Chinese filmmakers, broadcasters and game designers.
James Cameron, who was in China for the 2nd Beijing International Film Festival that kicked off on April 23, signed a cooperation deal for Cameron Pace Group with representatives from Tianjin Binhai New District and Tianjin North Film Group. Cameron and Pace led the creation of the 2009 stereoscopic 3D sci-fi blockbuster "Avatar", which grossed nearly 2.8 billion U.S. dollars at the global box office.
Cameron-Pace Group, a leader in 3-D technology and production services, aims to advance the future of 3-D technology through the development of products, solutions and creative tools for use across all media channels.
Cameron said he is confident China will become the world's top user of 3-D technologies as it is now the world's largest film market. Cameron said he will bring the most advanced stereoscopic 3D technologies to China and work with local partners to fast-track the application of the technologies. Other details regarding the group's China headquarters were not immediately available.
