American film director (b. August 16 1954) noted for his action/science fiction films. Cameron is also known for the remarkable results he gets from his special effects (FX) crews, beginning with The Terminator (whose special effects, while somewhat dated today, were quite advanced on the film's release in 1984). The special effects in Terminator 2: Judgement Day made extensive use of computer generated imaging (CGI) and won an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects; Cameron's Titanic made use of both CGI and a variety of sets of different scales, and also won an Academy Award for FX, among other things.
