The 2014 documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D gave the acclaimed filmmaker a second chance to change how audiences see history; the expedition went further than many will ever see, descending 35,787 feet into the Mariana Trench. This solo outing put Cameron on the line as he risked his life as well as his reputation as a ship designer.
The director made sure that every detail of the event was captured for posterity; the result will be “Deepsea Challenge 3D”. It was more than a journey to an unknown place, it was a research project. The Deepsea Challenger has been designed to collect rock, sediment and biological samples. In this aspect, Cameron collaborated with leading scientists from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the University of Hawaii, and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The group covered a wide range of interests such as marine biology and microbiology, astrobiology, marine geology and geophysics (through National Geography).
