James Cameron, Director Alister Grierson, Andrew Wight Interview SANCTUM slice

Rounding out our Sanctum coverage is a video interview with writer and real adventurer Andrew Wight, director Alister Grierson and producer James Cameron. Wight co-wrote the film, based upon his real life experiences, while Grierson found himself in the director’s chair after finishing a low budget movie about Australia during WWII.  Cameron of course, has directed the most expensive movie ever made, three times over. I got to sit down and discuss story development, things that were too extreme too show on camera, and the future of 3D filmmaking.  Hit the jump for the interview:
