The success that prompted James Cameron to introduce a new version of the film’s video footage, this time showing underwater footage with the actors in performance. What really stands out is Kiri, Sigourney Weaver’s character, who managed to stay in a state of apnea for over 6 minutes. The record during filming, in contrast, belongs to Kate Winslet, who was in a state of apnea for 7 minutes and 14 seconds. Recall that it was James Cameron who initiated water photography, developing a technology that did not exist until now. In the next video, we see not only Sigourney Weaver wearing a helmet to capture her facial expressions, a suit for her movements, but the surface of the water is covered with gripping balls to perfectly replicate the movement of the “water”. Pretty colossal work, I must admit.
