Laz Alonso, who allegedly plays one of the big blue Na'vi creatures in James Cameron's Avatargot all chatty about having hundreds of cameras focused on every scrap of his body, to capture a realistic looking alien. "Technologically speaking, we are being filmed by 197 cameras simultaneously, every single take. It's something you just can't explain in words [that] this man has created. At first it was intimidating, because I've never worked in that environment before... every single take is close-up, every single take is wide-shot, and every single take is a medium-shot. And he goes in later, to figure out which take he wants to use for which moment. It's very liberating, because you can give 100% every single take." [Black Razzi via Filmonic]
