Cameron to win new 3-D movie award
on Wednesday,February 02,2011 20:02
At the second annual Creative Arts Awards in Hollywood, California, film director James Cameron is slated to receive the International 3D Society's Harold Lloyd Award, according to TG Daily. However, this honor will not be like any other that the director has been given before: it's new, and Cameron will be the first to receive it.
The award is named after Harold Lloyd, who pioneered 3-D animation. His granddaughter, Suzanne Lloyd, is the chairman of Harold Lloyd Entertainment. She helped create the award in conjunction with the International 3D Society. Recently, the group has gained notoriety as 3-D films, such as Avatar and Toy Story 3, become more common at the cinema.
"[James Cameron] has embodied Harold Lloyd's vision and passion for dazzling audiences across the globe," Lloyd told the news source. "With 'Avatar' and his commitment to 3D storytelling, it is appropriate that he is the first recipient of this most prestigious annual award."
Cameron's work has not only been entertaining for movie goers, but inspiring for individuals working toward entering the 3-D film making industry.
Employment of animators is expected to increase by 14 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
