Rob Legato: “Jim could hire another thousand people, but they would have to transport, feed, clothe, and hire additional craftsmen to blend the makeup. My rule during filming was simple: if something is possible to capture using standard cameras, we shoot on film. If the stage or any object in it is impossible to withdraw, we use a computer. For scenes in which the passengers of the Titanic falling from a great height into the water, we shot a real spray from the fall of ordinary objects, thrown into the ocean. Instead of the expected three weeks, to simulate the dynamics of splashing of water with the aid of computers, it took us only an hour”.
