Titanic is one of the most famous epic romance-tragedy movie. It was directed, written, co-edited and co-produced by James Cameron. The movie is based on the sinking of the RMS Titanic. It was a British passenger liner that sank in the early hours of 15th of April 1912 in the North Atlantic Ocean, after colliding with an ice berg during its voyage from Southampton to New York. An estimated of 2,224 passengers and crew was aboard. More than 1,500 people died. It was one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disaster in modern history. At that time, Titanic was the largest ship afloat. It entered service and was the second of three Olympic-Class ocean liners which were operated by the White Star Line. The architect, Thomas Andrews died in the disaster.
Cameron felt a love story intermingling the human loss would be vital to convey the emotional impact of the disaster. His inspiration for the movie came from his fascination with shipwrecks. In 1995, the production began when Cameron shot footage of the real Titanic wreck. On board of the Akademik Mstislav Keldysh, the modern scene on the research vessel were shot. Cameron used this as a base when filming the wreck. At Baja Studios – Playas de Rosarito in Baja California, Scale Models, a reconstruction of the Titanic built and computer- generated imagery were used to re-create the sinking. It was the most expensive movie made at that time with a budget of $200 million. It was partially funded by 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures.
