Kellyville's own Tristan Morson was one of four James Cameron movie buffs to interview him live on the web on Saturday.

The Oscar-winning director chatted with his fans in a Google+ Hangout about making documentary Deepsea Challenge 3D and his experiences during his solo dive to the depths of the Mariana Trench — nearly seven miles beneath the ocean's surface — piloting a submersible he built with his team in Sydney.

"It will be good," Tristan said pre-interview.

Saturday's cross was hosted by Jabba aka Jason Davis (Pizza and Housos actor) and featured Deepsea Challenge co-director, Ray Quint. Tristan asked Cameron if he was "scared to go on this solo expedition to the deepest part of the ocean".

His mum said the interview went really well, with Cameron even inviting him to go down in the sub on his next mission.

"He said [Tristan's] question was really good and while he was scared, it was important to make new discoveries and keep exploring," she said.

Tristan won the chance to speak with Cameron as part of a national competition sponsored by Telstra and Event Cinemas.

Deepsea Challenge 3D is showing at Event Cinemas Castle Hill on August 21, 22, 25, 26 and 27 at 7pm. Details: http://eventcinemas.com.au.
