Lightstorm Greenlights 'Green'
James Cameron's Production Company Finds Environmentally Friendly Facility to Film Sequels to 'Avatar'
By MAURA WEBBER SADOVI

In James Cameron's hit movie, "Avatar," the Na'vi people on the distant world of Pandora live in harmony with their natural surroundings.

This philosophy guided the leasing strategy of the Academy Award-winning director as his production company, Lightstorm Entertainment, searched for office space and stages to shoot two "Avatar" sequels. Lightstorm has just leased some 115,000 square feet at a production facility in Manhattan Beach, Calif., that would make the beautiful Neytiri and her people proud.

Among Lightstorm's must haves: solar panels that are being added to the roof. Mr. Cameron is aiming for the film to use no more power than it produces from the panels. Environmentally friendly programs at the 22-acre film-production facility known as MBS Media Campus also include composting stations and dozens of loaner bikes for cycling the property.

The property needed to be a short enough drive between Lightstorm's headquarters in Santa Monica, about 15 miles away, and Mr. Cameron's Malibu home, from which he will commute in his Chevrolet Volt. "Until we made the commute, we thought Manhattan Beach would be too far for us," says Jon Landau, Mr. Cameron's business partner and the producer of "Avatar" and "Titanic." "Then we realized it's…only five minutes past LAX [Los Angeles International Airport]."

Lightstorm's five-year lease underscores the growing payoff landlords are enjoying from including "green" features in their properties. Even tenants that don't embrace environmentalism in their corporate message or products are finding there are public-relations benefits and cost savings to locating in more efficient buildings.

At the same time, the Lightstorm deal marks a victory for Hollywood in its long battle against other states and countries trying to poach from the birthplace of the film- and TV-production industry. Because the film partly uses computer-generated imagery, "Avatar" sequels could have been shot in numerous locations.

"'Avatar' is a movie that we could literally create anywhere in the world, because we create the world," Mr. Landau says.

The search for the space to house some 200 people was led by CB Richard Ellis broker Stephen Wiseman and began last summer. Lightstorm explored such options as making the entire movie in New Zealand, where it still will make the action sequences, building a new studio in California, or leasing. Ultimately, the unusually lengthy time that it takes to make the largely computer-generated movie weighed in favor of staying local, closer to where many employees, including Messrs. Cameron and Landau, live and work.

Mr. Cameron's decision to remain local was a win for California. The state recently began offering incentives to keep movie- and TV-production work in the state. While those aren't an option for blockbusters like "Avatar" with budgets of more than $75 million, California's entertainment-industry advocates say the $300 million in tax credits awarded by California to 116 productions since July 2009 have been crucial to keeping the industry healthy and creating the momentum that encourages producers of large and small projects to stay in town. "The biggest advantage California has is that we have the best crews and the best talent in the world," says Paul Krekorian, a Los Angeles City Council member and a former state assemblyman who supported the film-production-incentives legislation.

Twentieth Century Fox, the studio behind "Avatar," is owned by News Corp., which also publishes The Wall Street Journal.

Roughly a mile from the beach, MBS Media Campus is owned by private-equity firm Carlyle Group and has 15 sound stages and the state-of-the-art technology needed to create the fictional world of Pandora. The high-profile tenant will help bring the occupancy of the property, which had some vacancies after cancellation of the TV show "Medium" starring Patricia Arquette, close to 100%.

The deal also caps a repositioning initiative that Carlyle undertook after paying a top-of-the market price of $150 million in 2007 for the studio campus. Carlyle spent about $20 million to add such amenities as a New York-styled street scene and a 3-D screening room.

While many properties saw income and values plummet in the recession, MBS's net operating income increased to $17.5 million last year from $10.5 million in 2007, according to people familiar with the property. Last month, Carlyle got a new $150 million mortgage on the property from a unit of Goldman Sachs Group Inc.

Cool :)

I have a feeling A2 and A3 may end up being known as "Green movies" or the like at some point...still looks great when finished, yet the production is easy on the environment.
2010 was the year of the Na'vi.Vivar 'ivong Na'vi!
