Morgan Spurlock

He burst onto the scene with Super Size Me and since then, as he puts it here, Morgan Spurlock has been putting himself in “difficult and dangerous” situations in order to make social issues entertaining onscreen. Last year’s effort was The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, and he discusses and presents that film here, the story of his attempts to entirely fund a film about advertising and product placement through, well, advertising and product placement. Much of the material here is covered in the movie, but this functions as a 20-minute summary of the film, an update on its progress and a commentary on it. Adding an extra meta-touch, Spurlock also sold sponsorship of his TED talk itself, and if you keep watching you’ll see who landed it on eBay.

1 You can talk the talk...
You've got to give credit to Cameron for having the cojones to not only talk passionately about his love for marine exploration but to risk his fortune and life to pursue it. Goes way beyond "big boy's toys" and into the realms of genuinely inspiring. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environ ment-17013038 More

2 While Cameron is good, Scott is EPIC
Both directors are in a class by themselves, but if I had to choose between them when I want to watch Sci-fi; I would pick Ridley Scott for sure! More

3 Come back JC
I wish James Cameron would make more movies. And more non-sci-fi ones too. I'd love to see his take on World War II. More

The James Cameron one is really interesting - and I have to apologize to him! I was one of those people who would have a go at him for thinking he just sat back for 12 years while he waited to make Avatar, but it sounds like he was just taking some time to do what he loves. I respect that. Sorry, James. More
