For their third annual Tribute to the Crafts, American Cinematheque is honoring films such as American Fiction, Barbie, Poor Things, and Oppenheimer, to name a few of many stories that captured audiences’ imaginations in 2023. On January 19th, at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater, cinematographers, costume designers, visual effects artists, and more crew members will celebrate exceptional work from 15 categories.

Oscar-winning sound mixer Kevin O’Connell (Barbie and Oppenheimer), as well, will receive the Career Achievement Award.

American Cinematheque board members Franklin Leonard, known for The Blacklist, and producer Paula Wagner (Mission: Impossible) are co-hosting the event. “Celebrating the artisans and craftspeople’s essential contributions to film is one of the cornerstones of our mission at American Cinematheque,” American Cinematheque’s artistic director, Grant Moninger, said in a statement. “This year the jury had over 170 feature films and documentaries to choose from, which speaks to what an incredible year this has been for moviegoing.”

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.
