James Cameron to Receive MPSE Filmmaker Award

The Motion Picture Sound Editors (MPSE) today announces that will it be honoring James Cameron with its MPSE Filmmaker Award at the 61ST MPSE Golden Reel Awards ceremony. The honor is bestowed upon extraordinary filmmakers who embody the spirit, the vigor and innovation of storytelling.

Cameron will accept his award at the MPSE Golden Reel Awards ceremony held on February 16 at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel and Suites, Los Angeles.

The director first found success with the science-fiction hit The Terminator (1984). He went on to write and direct Aliens (1986) and three years later followed up with The Abyss (1989). He found further critical acclaim for his use of special effects in the action packed blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

After his film True Lies (1994) Cameron took on his biggest film at the time, Titanic(1997), which earned him three Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director and Film Editing. After Titanic, Cameron began a project that took almost 10 Years to make: his science-fiction epic Avatar (2009), for which he received the three same Academy Award nominations. In the time between making Titanic and Avatar, Cameron spent several years creating many documentary films (specifically underwater documentaries) and co-developed the digital 3D Fusion Camera System. Described by a biographer as part-scientist and part-artist, Cameron has also contributed tounderwater filming and remote vehicle technologies.
