James Cameron, director of Avatar and Titanic today opened an office in Australia for his company Cameron Pace Group (CPG).
Based in Melbourne, the office will be run by managing director Andrew Wight, producer of last year’s Sanctum. It is the first international office for the 3D technologies and production services company led by Cameron and Vince Pace.
The Australian office is to answer the growing demand for CPG’s technology and 3D camera equipment across feature films, television, live sports broadcasting.
Cameron said: “3D is the future for both film and broadcasting. We are very excited about enabling more world-class 3D productions in Australia. Andrew is a longtime 3D collaborator with Vince Pace and myself, and I’m proud to have him join the team.”
Wight said: “I’m proud that the first international office for the Cameron Pace Group is in Australia. Our presence will enable filmmakers here to benefit from the same 3D technology and expertise that made James Cameron’s “Avatar” possible. There is a wealth of creative talent in this country, and now we can provide the 3D know-how and equipment to match that talent.”
CPG has provided technological innovation for films such as Hugo, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Avatar as well as the upcoming Life of Pi by Ang Lee. CPG have also lead 3D sports productions including last year’s US open Tennis Championships and Summer X Games.
