A new feature entitled Aloha Inspirations makes its debut today. These images, films and people helped inspire Cameron as he wrote and directed Aloha. The comments are from Cameron in his own words. Enjoy!
“This photo was an early inspiration for “Aloha,” a story which takes place partially in the new world of space exploration. I was fascinated with the effect of the shrinking budgets allowed for modern space study, and this was a fascinating photo of an astronaut who had been sent up to fix an ailing space shuttle. The photo went around the globe, and pre-dated the current situation where private investors are now so active in launching rockets. Who owns the sky? Is it for sale? The idea really got me going.”
