James Cameron and Bill Paxton, director and actor of the 1997 film Titanic, travel to the final undersea resting place of the ill-fated ship of dreams.
(September 11, 2001) James Cameron and Bill Paxton were filming a sequence of the Titanic wreckage in Cameron's Deepsea Challenger submersible when the 9/11 attacks occurred.
The crucial thing about deep-sea photography is lighting.
The fourth funnel is shown falling backwards when the ship breaks in two in the sinking simulation. It would do no such thing. It would fall forward like the other funnels. This is also seen in the "final plunge" montage with the photographs of the passengers who perished in the disaster superimposed in front of the footage of the ship sinking from the movie Titanic (1997).
The DVD extended version documents the initial attempt to rescue Elwood where Jake is almost lost as well.
