Edward Fletcher, Actor: Titanic. Edward was born in Boston, Massachusetts in the fall of and grew up in neighboring Cambridge. He attended Wheaton College and studied at the Berklee College of Music. His big break into Hollywood came when he was cast in James Cameron's blockbuster hit, Titanic () as 6th Officer Moody. Edward took some time off from acting in the early.
He liberally copied some dialogue and scenes from that film, including the lively party of the passengers in steerage,  and the musicians playing on the deck during the sinking of the ship. Cameron felt the Titanic sinking was "like a great novel that really happened", but that the event had become a mere morality tale ; the film would give audiences the experience of living the history.
It's not a disaster film. It's a love story with a fastidious overlay of real history. Cameron framed the romance with the elderly Rose to make the intervening years palpable and poignant. Harland and Wolff , the RMS Titanic 's builders, opened their private archives to the crew, sharing blueprints that were thought lost. For the ship's interiors, production designer Peter Lamont 's team looked for artifacts from the era. The newness of the ship meant every prop had to be made from scratch.
A horizon tank of seventeen million gallons was built for the exterior of the reconstructed ship, providing degrees of ocean view. The ship was built to full scale, but Lamont removed redundant sections on the superstructure and forward well deck for the ship to fit in the tank, with the remaining sections filled with digital models.
The lifeboats and funnels were shrunken by ten percent. The boat deck and A-deck were working sets, but the rest of the ship was just steel plating. Within was a fifty-foot lifting platform for the ship to tilt during the sinking sequences.
Towering above was a foot-tall 49 m tower crane on feet m of rail track , acting as a combined construction, lighting, and camera platform. The sets representing the interior rooms of the Titanic were reproduced exactly as originally built, using photographs and plans from the Titanic 's builders.
Craftsmen from Mexico and Britain sculpted the ornate paneling and plaster-work based on Titanic 's original designs. Principal photography for Titanic began in July at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia , with the filming of the modern-day expedition scenes aboard the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh. This posed a problem for shooting the ship's departure from Southampton , as it was docked on its port side.
Implementation of written directions, as well as props and costumes, had to be reversed; for example, if someone walked to their right in the script, they had to walk left during shooting.
In post-production, the film was flipped to the correct direction. A full-time etiquette coach was hired to instruct the cast in the manners of the upper class gentility in Cameron sketched Jack's nude portrait of Rose  for a scene which he feels has the backdrop of repression. It's kind of exhilarating for that reason," he said. There's a nervousness and an energy and a hesitance in them," Cameron stated. If I'd had a choice, I probably would have preferred to put it deeper into the body of the shoot.
Other times on the set were not as smooth. The shoot was an arduous experience that "cemented Cameron's formidable reputation as 'the scariest man in Hollywood'. He became known as an uncompromising, hard-charging perfectionist" and a "decibel screamer, a modern-day Captain Bligh with a megaphone and walkie-talkie, swooping down into people's faces on a ft crane". Jim has a temper like you wouldn't believe," she said.
Jim is not one of those guys who has the time to win hearts and minds," he said. A great battle between business and aesthetics. Some of them said they were seeing streaks and psychedelics," said actor Lewis Abernathy. Abernathy was shocked at the way he looked. A pupil, no iris, beet red. The other eye looked like he'd been sniffing glue since he was four. The filming schedule was intended to last days but grew to In the end, she decided she would not work with Cameron again unless she earned "a lot of money".
I'm demanding, and I'm demanding on my crew. In terms of being kind of militaresque, I think there's an element of that in dealing with thousands of extras and big logistics and keeping people safe. I think you have to have a fairly strict methodology in dealing with a large number of people. Cameron refused, telling Fox, "You want to cut my movie? You're going to have to fire me! You want to fire me? You're going to have to kill me! Cameron explained forfeiting his share as complex. Those films went up seven or eight percent from the initial budget.
I did that on two different occasions. They didn't force me to do it; they were glad that I did. Cameron wanted to push the boundary of special effects with his film, and enlisted Digital Domain and Pacific Data Images to continue the developments in digital technology which the director pioneered while working on The Abyss and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Many previous films about the RMS Titanic shot water in slow motion , which did not look wholly convincing. Visual effects supervisor Rob Legato scanned the faces of many actors, including himself and his children, for the digital extras and stuntmen.
There was also a foot-long 20 m model of the ship's stern that could break in two repeatedly, the only miniature to be used in water. An enclosed 5,,US-gallon 19,, L tank was used for sinking interiors, in which the entire set could be tilted into the water. In order to sink the Grand Staircase, 90, US gallons , L of water were dumped into the set as it was lowered into the tank.
Unexpectedly, the waterfall ripped the staircase from its steel-reinforced foundations, although no one was hurt. The foot-long m exterior of the RMS Titanic had its first half lowered into the tank, but as the heaviest part of the ship it acted as a shock absorber against the water; to get the set into the water, Cameron had much of the set emptied and even smashed some of the promenade windows himself. After submerging the dining saloon, three days were spent shooting Lovett's ROV traversing the wreck in the present.
The climactic scene, which features the breakup of the ship directly before it sinks as well as its final plunge to the bottom of the Atlantic, involved a tilting full-sized set, extras, and stunt performers.
Cameron criticized previous Titanic films for depicting the liner's final plunge as a graceful slide underwater. He "wanted to depict it as the terrifyingly chaotic event that it really was". The risks were eventually minimized "by using computer-generated people for the dangerous falls". A Linux -based operating system was utilized for the creation of the effects.
There was one "crucial historical fact" Cameron chose to omit from the film — the SS Californian was close to the Titanic the night she sank but had turned off its radio for the night, did not hear her crew's SOS calls, and did not respond to their distress flares. That wasn't a compromise to mainstream filmmaking.
He said there were aspects of retelling the sinking that seemed important in pre- and post-production, but turned out to be less important as the film evolved.
It was a clean cut, because it focuses you back onto that world. If Titanic is powerful as a metaphor, as a microcosm, for the end of the world in a sense, then that world must be self-contained. During the first assembly cut, Cameron altered the planned ending, which had given resolution to Brock Lovett's story.
In the original version of the ending, Brock and Lizzy see the elderly Rose at the stern of the boat and fear she is going to commit suicide. Rose then reveals that she had the "Heart of the Ocean" diamond all along but never sold it, in order to live on her own without Cal's money.
She tells Brock that life is priceless and throws the diamond into the ocean, after allowing him to hold it. After accepting that treasure is worthless, Brock laughs at his stupidity.
Rose then goes back to her cabin to sleep, whereupon the film ends in the same way as the final version. In the editing room, Cameron decided that by this point, the audience would no longer be interested in Brock Lovett and cut the resolution to his story, so that Rose is alone when she drops the diamond. He also did not want to disrupt the audience's melancholy after the Titanic 's sinking. Our job was done by then If you're smart and you take the ego and the narcissism out of it, you'll listen to the film, and the film will tell you what it needs and what it does not need".
The version used for the first test screening featured a fight between Jack and Lovejoy which takes place after Jack and Rose escape into the flooded dining saloon, but the test audiences disliked it. Lovejoy goes after the pair in the sinking first-class dining room. Just as they are about to escape him, Lovejoy notices Rose's hand slap the water as it slips off the table behind which she is hiding.
In revenge for framing him for the "theft" of the necklace, Jack attacks him and smashes his head against a glass window, which explains the gash on Lovejoy's head that can be seen when he dies in the completed version of the film.
In their reactions to the scene, test audiences said it would be unrealistic to risk one's life for wealth, and Cameron cut it for this reason, as well as for timing and pacing reasons.
Many other scenes were cut for similar reasons. Cameron wrote Titanic while listening to the work of Irish new-age musician Enya. The two had parted ways after a tumultuous working experience on Aliens ,  but Titanic cemented a successful collaboration that lasted until Horner's death. Horner knew Sissel from her album Innerst i sjelen , and he particularly liked how she sang " Eg veit i himmerik ei borg " "I Know in Heaven There Is a Castle".
He had tried twenty-five or thirty singers before he finally chose Sissel as the voice to create specific moods within the film. Horner additionally wrote the song " My Heart Will Go On " in secret with Will Jennings because Cameron did not want any songs with singing in the film.
Horner waited until Cameron was in an appropriate mood before presenting him with the song. After playing it several times, Cameron declared his approval, although worried that he would have been criticized for "going commercial at the end of the movie".
Two of their designs were used in the film while the other went unused until after the film had been released. The three necklaces are commonly known as the original prop, the J. Peterman necklace, and the Asprey necklace. The three necklaces are all very similar but have distinguishable differences. The third and final design was not used in the film. The result was a platinum-set, carat The chain for this necklace also featured a mix of round, pear, and marquise cut white diamonds.
The bail also featured a heart cut white diamond with another round cut diamond attached to an inverted pear shape diamond which was then attached to the cage of the main stone.
The necklace was donated to Sotheby's auction house in Beverly Hills for an auction benefiting the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund and Southern California's Aid For AIDS. This necklace has since not been made available for public viewing. They expected Cameron to complete the film for a release on July 2, The film was to be released on this date "in order to exploit the lucrative summer season ticket sales when blockbuster films usually do better".
The film premiered on November 1, , at the Tokyo International Film Festival ,  where reaction was described as " tepid " by The New York Times.
Titanic was the first foreign-language film to succeed in India, which has the largest movie-going audience in the world. The film received steady attendance after opening in North America on Friday, December 19, By the end of that same weekend, theaters were beginning to sell out.
It was a certainty," he stated. A film critic for the Los Angeles Times wrote that "Cameron's overweening pride has come close to capsizing this project" and that the film was "a hackneyed, completely derivative copy of old Hollywood romances". When the film became a success, with an unprecedented box office performance, it was credited for being a love story that captured its viewers' emotions. Titanic ' s impact on men has also been especially credited.
In , the BBC analyzed the stigma over men crying during Titanic and films in general. From a very young age, males are taught that it is inappropriate to cry, and these lessons are often accompanied by a great deal of ridicule when the lessons aren't followed. Scott Meslow of The Atlantic stated while Titanic initially seems to need no defense, given its success, it is considered a film "for year-old girls" by its main detractors.
He acknowledged his own rejection of the film as a child while secretly loving it. It's a great movie for year-old girls, but that doesn't mean it's not a great movie for everyone else too. Quotes in the film aided its popularity. Titanic 's catchphrase "I'm the king of the world! Cameron explained the film's success as having significantly benefited from the experience of sharing. They want to grab their friend and bring them, so that they can enjoy it," he said. That's how Titanic worked.
Titanic held the record for box office gross for 12 years. For one, "Two-thirds of Titanic 's haul was earned overseas, and Avatar [tracked] similarly Avatar opened in markets globally and was no. Some pretty good movies have come out in the last few years. Titanic just struck some kind of chord. It's just a matter of time," he said. Titanic garnered mainly positive reviews from film critics, and was positively reviewed by audiences and scholars, who commented on the film's cultural, historical, and political impacts.
With regard to the film's overall design, Roger Ebert stated, "It is flawlessly crafted, intelligently constructed, strongly acted, and spellbinding You don't just watch Titanic , you experience it. The romantic and emotionally charged aspects of the film were equally praised. Andrew L. Urban of Urban Cinefile said, "You will walk out of Titanic not talking about budget or running time, but of its enormous emotive power, big as the engines of the ship itself, determined as its giant propellers to gouge into your heart, and as lasting as the love story that propels it.
Some reviewers felt that the story and dialogue were weak,  while the visuals were spectacular. Kenneth Turan 's review in the Los Angeles Times was particularly scathing. Dismissing the emotive elements, he stated, "What really brings on the tears is Cameron's insistence that writing this kind of movie is within his abilities.
Not only is it not, it is not even close",  and later claimed that the only reason that the film won Oscars was because of its box office total. Titanic suffered backlash in addition to its success. In , the film topped a poll of "Best Film Endings",  and yet it also topped a poll by Film as "the worst movie of all time".
Cameron responded to the backlash, and Kenneth Turan's review in particular. He described the script as earnest and straightforward, and said it intentionally "incorporates universals of human experience and emotion that are timeless — and familiar because they reflect our basic emotional fabric" and that the film was able to succeed in this way by dealing with archetypes.
He did not see it as pandering. Empire eventually reinstated its original five star rating of the film, commenting, "It should be no surprise then that it became fashionable to bash James Cameron's Titanic at approximately the same time it became clear that this was the planet's favourite film.
Titanic began its awards sweep starting with the Golden Globes , winning four: Best Motion Picture — Drama , Best Director , Best Original Score , and Best Original Song. Mankiewicz 's All About Eve  and won eleven: Best Picture the second film about the Titanic to win that award, after 's Cavalcade , Best Director , Best Art Direction , Best Cinematography , Best Visual Effects , Best Film Editing , Best Costume Design , Best Sound Gary Rydstrom , Tom Johnson , Gary Summers , Mark Ulano , Best Sound Effects Editing , Best Original Dramatic Score , Best Original Song.
James Cameron's original screenplay and Leonardo DiCaprio were not nominees. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King would also match this record in Titanic won the Academy Award for Best Original Song , as well as four Grammy Awards for Record of the Year , Song of the Year , Best Song Written Specifically for a Motion Picture or Television , and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The film also won various awards outside the United States, including the Awards of the Japanese Academy as the Best Foreign Film of the Year.

The scene was replaced with an accurate view of the night-sky star pattern, including the Milky Way , adjusted for the location in the North Atlantic Ocean in April The change was prompted by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson , who had criticized the scene for showing an unrealistic star pattern. He agreed to send film director Cameron a corrected view of the sky, which was the basis of the new scene.
The 3D version of Titanic premiered at the Royal Albert Hall in London on March 27, , with James Cameron and Kate Winslet in attendance,   and entered general release on April 4, , six days shy of the centenary of RMS Titanic embarking on her maiden voyage. He said, "The 3D intensifies Titanic. You are there. Caught up like never before in an intimate epic that earns its place in the movie time capsule.
