Jon Landau revealed the surprising way Madonna inspired the film's cinematography. Landau, who shares producing credit with Cameron, says they were inspired specifically by the pop star's microphone placement during her concerts which gave them the idea to keep the camera close to actors while filming action scenes.

I did not know this but damn. :wide-eyes:

It's like when the headset microphone was invented, they called it the "Madonna mic" because she used it so much for the Blond Ambition Tour.

This is actually pretty cool, considering facial motion capture is done with marker based now, it was very premature in the 2000's and did not capture every movement, I guess James Cameron thought of Madonna a lot especially during the mid 90's as Evita was huge just prior to Titanic and thought of the head mic to support performance capture and track facial movement frame by frame. tedious but as we all know, Avatar was revolutionary for its time.
