A section of the evidence relating to the influence on "Avatar" of my "Gosk 2" video, more of which can be found at my "Jonathan D. Steinhoff's Sometimes Blog" blogsite, article dated Feb. 21, 2010. In that "Jurassic Park", which, like "Avatar", was the most successful film ever in its day, and it too was a work upon which I was a secret major influence, I think I'm due a free popcorn. (Actually, there are a ton of works I'm leaving out here, in truth I'm due two or three free popcorns.)

Addendum re Cameron's "Alita: Battle Angel"
It falls to me to state the obvious regarding the total influence of this "Cameron Is Half-Gosk" video (as well as my "Gosk 2" video) on the (spoiler alert) ending of the movie, "Alita: Battle Angel", which I am fortunately pleased to do, for one and all! (1) James Cameron co-wrote and co-produced the 2019 movie, "Alita: Battle Angel"; (2) James Cameron is in focus with this 2011 video, "Cameron is Half-Gosk", re my significant influences on "Avatar"; (3) The ending of this 2011 video (as well as the moment from my "Gosk" video from which it originates) is The Perfect Match to the ending of "Alita". (Take five minutes, check that I'm right, then if you're able, please ask Mr. Cameron to go to my gofundme... or make a wish to yourself that he do this, whatever...)
