When filming Titanic, Cameron’s pursuit of perfection was fully demonstrated. He once took the special effects teacher’s pen in the studio and drew the prop manuscript himself. He once threatened the producer to kill himself immediately if he was not allowed to shoot a play according to his budget and ideas. The severe budget overruns, the coldness of the investors, the complaints of his staff, the cold sea water and the unimaginable difficulties nearly brought Cameron to the brink of collapse, but he still insisted and shouted out a solemn and stirring grandiloquence: ” Titanic can sink, Titanic cannot sink!”
After Titanic made a global profit of about 1.8 billion US dollars, Cameron’s reputation was not lost for a while, but he was dormant. In fact, Cameron had already finished the script of Avatar, but the technical level at that time could not express his imagination.
