AVATAR AN ACTIVIST SURVIVAL GUIDE PDF

It is one of the many natural satellites orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus, [3] named for the Polyphemus of Greek mythology. I actually wrote about how it causes a particular sky coloration across the visible spectrum at moments of pure dusk. They identify themselves, and signify in their markings, with this color. That pure dusk "color," combined with their other predominant color markings lets you also know how they relate to Eywa as a "religion" versus Eywa as a physical reality. Pandora also possesses a lesser gravitational force than Earth does. The geology of Pandora is strongly affected by the presence of unobtanium , a mineral whose superconductive properties allow it to float in magnetic fields flux pinning.

Shelves: making-movies , nonfiction This book was incredibly poor. Everything about it was shoddy: poor science, poor writing, poor design. The absolute worst part of the book was the "handwritten" notes from the "activists" behind the book. James Cameron obviously had a lot of good ideas but it seems like the marketing division at 20th Century Fox threw the shooting script at the writers of this book and told them to find vaguely scientific reasons for everything.

The acknowledgements say scientists were involved with this book, but it must have been at a very cursory level. Somethings came across as really weird to me. For example, the length of some piece of equipment was given as They need to be that specific? The use of concept art was good but it was often repeated, and they included mostly early concept art, showing that this book was being put together way before the film neared completion.

It would have benefitted from the use of movie stills. The overall design of the book, with crumpled page backgrounds and "handwriting" fonts for the notes was absolutely crap. Just terrible to look at. Fire the designer. These sections were really short though, and marred by more "activist" whining. The worst sections were the plants - all the fictional plants are similar to one another, and the 40 pages of flora were very dryly written.

It got dull fast. Ugh, this book could have been so much better if it had been thoroughly researched, better designed, and the whole "activism" pretense was dropped. My verdict: save your money for "The Science of Avatar". Sadly not the case. I had initially dismissed this book when I first heard about it, but when I recently found out about the book The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island which is a really good example of this sort of work, I This book is a complete disappointment.

I had initially dismissed this book when I first heard about it, but when I recently found out about the book The World of Kong: A Natural History of Skull Island which is a really good example of this sort of work, I was prompted to give this another try. Mostly I like books about aliens and monsters and unusual creatures, so the only chapter I fully read was the one on the fauna of Pandora. Skimmed the sections on flora and the human technology a bit.

Thoughts and complaints: - The art is bad, almost all at the level of a sketch rather than full art. But sketches can be interesting, and this is actually poorly rendered CG art and speed painting-like drawings.

James Cameron - Avatar - An Activist Survival Guide (pdf)

Four years in the making—and 15 years since its conception—Avatar is a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivering a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story. Though Pandora has proven to be an exceedingly profitable source of natural resources, the environment—from its gravity-defying floating mountains to the small but venomous hellfire wasps and the gigantic carnivorous thanator—poses continual dangers to RDA. Catalogued with unparalleled precision and access, this field guide provides highly detailed descriptions of the unique creatures and plants found on Pandora, the culture, language, and physiology of the native population, as well as RDA technology and weapons. This is the evidence in their case to save Pandora—and themselves. Synopsis This stunning, full-color companion to "Avatar," the next cutting-edge masterpiece from James Cameron, features a comprehensive look at the fictional world created for the film, including flora, fauna, planets, and more.
