Although the 93rd Academy Awards are over and done, the American Cinema Editors‘ (ACE) 21st Annual Invisible Art / Visible Artists panel, showcasing all five Oscar-nominated Film Editors, took place virtually this past weekend with all five nominated editors on hand to talk about their craft.

Nomadland Editor (and Oscar-winning Director) Chloé ZhaoYorgos Lamprinos (The Father), Frédéric Thoraval (Promising Young Woman), Mikkel E.G. Nielsen (Sound of Metal) and previous Oscar-winner Alan Baumgarten, ACE  (The Trial of the Chicago 7) joined moderator Alan Heim, ACE for the panel.

The nominees covered a wide range of topics, including how they approached the material, their decision-making process in the edit bay, collaborating with the film’s director, work styles, adapting to pandemic-style editing and many other topics during this hour-long celebration of the essential art of film editing.

In past years, this event took place at the Egyptian Theatre, but due to the COVID pandemic, it shifted to a virtual panel sponsored by Blackmagic Design, Adobe, Avid, the Motion Picture Editors Guild, NABShow, American Cinematheque, Cinema Editor Magazine and CineMontage.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
