After the ship hits the iceberg and just before people start kicking the ice around there is a shot of the ships starboard side. That shot makes it look like all of F-deck is underwater. The ship looks too low in the water only lights on D and E deck are visible. Do any of you know why?

Its to do with the set.James only made the actual set so many decks high.Once a distance shot was needed it would look like the ship is low in the water.All other shots of the ship are computered genterated.Even some of the bow deck was not fully made and special effects just filled in the blank areas.Hopefully if the so called Special DVD ever gets done all us fans will see more of the behind the scenes and fill in the answers to our questions.Over all well done on a keen eye as many people watching the movie would of not even have noticed

I have a feeling, though, that such a disclosure of 'behind the scenes' footage is liable to generate even more questions than answer questions. Hey, that's the nature of Titanic and the Titanic devotee, hehe.

Wesley:

Remember, this problem will probably disappear sometime in the next few years. As you already know if you saw the re-release of E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, or Star Wars, they can now go back and improve special effects with CG techniques, or clean up mistakes that way, too. Cameron's movie has a whole bunch of little stuff that will probably be taken care of for a major re-release, which I expect to happen in 2012, the centenary of the sinking.

It'll be worth it just not to be distracted by that wire moving the glass off Andrews' mantelpiece...
