Below is an interesting Ted talk by James Cameron — James Cameron‘s big-budget (and even bigger-grossing) films create unreal worlds all their own. In this personal talk, he reveals his childhood fascination with the fantastic — from reading science fiction to deep-sea diving — and how it ultimately drove the success of his blockbuster hits “Aliens,” “The Terminator,” “Titanic” and “Avatar.” (Recorded at TED2010, February 2010 in Long Beach, CA.

I really enjoy his narration through his creative process and perspective on “failure”. Two elements that most don’t understand well enough.
