About this deal

Ich selbst habe mir beim Lesen das Vorblättern übrigens strikt untersagt, sondern habe mich von Seite zu Seite aufs Neue überraschen lassen - so lange, bis ich die Lektüre überraschend schnell beendet hatte: Länger als zwei Tage habe ich nicht gebraucht, um das opulent bebilderte, faktensatte Werk vom Anfang bis zum Ende zu lesen. In his foreword to Exploring the Deep: The Titanic Expeditions, Paxton notes his reservations of traveling to the ocean floor.

Ultimately Cameron would make thirty dives on the site of the wrecked R MS Titanic, more than anyone, first for footage that would be used for his film Titanic (which would win 11 Academy Awards), and later purely for scientific knowledge and exploration. Nachdem ich das Buch mit Begeisterung gelesen habe, nehme ich an, dass es nur eine Frage der Zeit ist, bis ich mir auch den begleitenden Film besorgen werde. Spätestens im direkten Vergleich des historischen Bildmaterials mit den Aufnahmen aus dem Wrack wird deutlich, was die Unterwasseraufnahmen zeigen. Lynch was the chief historical advisor for James Cameron’s blockbuster movie, Titanic, and has participated in two of Cameron’s expeditions to the wreck.

Having undertaken more than thirty dives to the wreck of Titanic, acclaimed director James Cameron has probably gained more firsthand insight into the sinking of the ship than any person alive today. One of the high points from a scientific standpoint this year was the discovery in August of the USS Indianapolis on the floor of the Pacific Ocean by undersea adventurer and billionaire Paul Allen, more than 70 years after it was sunk during World War II, and thirty-two years after undersea explorer Robert Ballard first discovered the location of the wreckage of the most well-known maritime disaster, the sinking of the RMS Titanic. He uses photographs of the Titanic’s sister ship, the R MS Olympic, to highlight identical artifacts inside the ship. Also featuring Cameron's exclusive dive journal and previously unpublished visual elements, including dive maps and personal photographs, this book is an emotional and evocative examination of the wreck from one of the most exciting figures in both filmmaking and exploration. Having undertaken more than thirty dives to the wreck of the Titanic, acclaimed director James Cameron has probably gained more first-hand insight into the sinking of the ship than any person alive today.

There is great underwater photography, Ken Marschall's new great paintings, 3-D computer-generated recreations, Titanic movie stills, and period photographs, all of them of great quality, some insert fold-out recreations of diagrams used in the expeditions, along with contributions from all the Titanic 'dream team'. Capturing all the excitement, danger, and wonder of these pioneering expeditions, Exploring the Deep will also examine the legacy of Cameron s explorations and the considerable impact they have made on our understanding of the disaster. Dessen Leinwandpremiere sowie die Oscar-Verleihung, bei der Camerons Film eine Trophäe nach der anderen abräumte (insgesamt waren es elf Stück), liegen nun auch bald 20 Jahre zurück. A great addition to the collective knowledge of undersea archaeology and maritime history, a must for fans of James Cameron and Bill Paxton, and for anyone who ever marveled at the exploration of Jacques Cousteau, Exploring the Deep: The Titanic Expeditions will be an absorbing read.Was zu sehen ist, ist teils wirklich atemberaubend: Gerade die Aufnahmen aus dem Türkischen Dampfbad, für die Cameron und seine Crew Roboter bis tief in lange Zeit unzugängliche Bereiche des Wracks gesteuert haben, enthüllen Spiegel, aufwändig geätzte Glasscheiben, bronzene Lampen und anderes, was dem Zahn der Zeit erstaunlich gut getrotzt hat. Having undertaken more than thirty dives to the wreck of the Titanic, acclaimed director James Cameron has probably gained more first hand insight into the sinking of the ship than any person alive today. Bolstered by contributions from three of the world’s foremost Titanic experts, Don Lynch, Ken Marschall, and Parks Stephenson, Exploring the Deep is the definitive book on Cameron’s expeditions and the last word on a historical event that continues to shock and beguile. Many artifacts surprisingly are still intact, like mirrors, windows, glassware, and dishes–and equipment in the Marconi Wireless Telegraph rooms, which were instrumental in saving the 706 survivors. Und ganz so als seien ein gut lesbarer, mit Sachverstand verfasster Text und die opulente Bebilderung nicht genug, hat man dem Buch noch eine Reihe von Gadgets in Form von teils ausklappbaren Reproduktionen von Dokumenten beigefügt, die im Rahmen der Expedition eine Rolle gespielt haben - eine nette Dreingabe, derer es in meinen Augen freilich nicht unbedingt bedurft hätte, zumal die eingeklebten Artefakte den Lesefluss etwas hemmen.

The visionary behind record-setting blockbuster movies such as "Titanic, Avatar," and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," Cameron s passion for diving and exploration has led him to embark on a number of trailblazing deep-sea expeditions, including more than thirty dives to "Titanic. Ken Marschall, Contributor: Ken Marschall is a renowned artist who has been painting Titanic since he was sixteen. he authored the books "Ghosts of the Abyss" and the "New York Times" best seller "Titanic: An Illustrated History. Where possible he includes rare photographs taken the day of or just before the Titanic went to sea on its maiden and only voyage, and otherwise he incorporates for reference Ken Marschall’s detailed paintings, Parks Stephenson’s computer-generated simulations, and his own recreations used in his film Titanic–all with an eye toward conveying to readers what Titanic looked like in 1912.Now, on the centenary of the tragedy, this deluxe coffee table book tells the complete story of his remarkable expeditions and the incredible technological innovations that made them possible. The visionary behind record-setting blockbuster movies such as Titanic, Avatar, and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron's passion for diving and exploration has led him to embark on a number of trailblazing deep-sea expeditions, including more than thirty dives to Titanic. Ich erinnere mich noch gut: Auch mich hat "Titanic" damals so schnell nicht wieder losgelassen - nach dem ersten Kinobesuch haben mich die Bilder des steil in den Nachthimmel aufragenden Schiffshecks nächtens bis in den Traum verfolgt. Zusätzliche Orientierung bieten zahlreiche, offenbar eigens für "Mission Titanic" angefertigte Computergrafiken, welche zeigen, wie diejenigen Innenräume ausgesehen haben dürften, von denen keine Bilder vor der Katastrophe existieren. Lynch was the chief historical advisor for James Cameron’s blockbuster movie, Titanic, and has participated in two of Cameron’s expeditions, diving to the wreck twice.

Das, denke ich, müssen Cameron auch die lassen, die über seinen Film die Nase rümpfen: Es gehört gehörig Schneid dazu, sich in einer engen, stählernen Tauchkapsel auf eine Tiefe herabzulassen, in der, rund 3800 Meter unter dem Meersspiegel, das 370-fache des normalen Atmosphärendrucks herrscht - eine Umgebung, in der Fehler tödliche Folgen haben können. Cameron documented his expeditions in his book Exploring the Deep: The Titanic Expeditions, now available in a paperback edition from Insight Editions.

Zugegeben: Die großformatige, ausklappbare Grafik, welche die einzelnen Stagen des Untergangs und Absinkens des Schiffs in Einzelbildern nachempfindet, ist sehr wohl beeindruckend. You will learn how Cameron's childhood interest in underwater habitats gradually propelled him towards making the famous blockbuster.
