The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) announced the television nominees for the organization’s 28th Annual Outstanding Achievement Awards. The winners will be announced at a gala on Feb. 1, at the Hollywood & Highland Ray Dolby Ballroom.

The nominees in each of the three categories are:

One-hour Episodic Television Series:

Steven Bernstein, ASC for Starz Network’s Magic City (“The Sins of the Father”)
David Franco for HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (“Erlkönig”)
Jonathan Freeman, ASC for HBO’s Game of Thrones (“Valar Dohaeris”)
Pierre Gill, CSC for Showtime’s The Borgias (“The Purge”)
David Greene, CSC for The CW’s Beauty and the Beast (“Tough Love”)
Anette Haellmigk for HBO’s Game of Thrones (“Kissed by Fire”)
Kramer Morgenthau, ASC for Fox’s Sleepy Hollow (“Pilot”)
Ousama Rawi, BSC, CSC for NBC’s Dracula (“The Blood is the Life”)

Half-hour Episodic Series:

Peter Levy, ACS, ASC for Showtime’s House of Lies (“The Runner Stumbles”)
Matthew J. Lloyd, CSC for Amazon’s Alpha House (“Pilot”)

Television Movie/Miniseries:

Jeremy Benning, CSC for National Geographic Channel’s Killing Lincoln
David Luther for Starz Network’s The White Queen (“War at First Hand”)
Ashley Rowe, BSC for Starz Network’s Dancing on the Edge (Episode 1.1)

“The new heights that storytelling has reached on television are in part because of the tremendous artistry and outstanding work being done by the shows’ cinematographers,” said ASC president Richard Crudo. “It was difficult for our members to narrow down the field to these nominees given the high caliber of the submissions.”

Franco has been previously nominated for Boardwalk Empire (2012), Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee (2008), Intensity (1998), Falling for You (1996) and Million Dollar Babies (1995).

Freeman has collected three ASC Awards. His wins were for Boardwalk Empire (2012, 2011) and Homeland Security in (2005). He has also earned additional nominations for Taken (2003), Strange Justice (2000) and Prince Street (1998).

Gill and Morgenthau have each previously earned an ASC Outstanding Achievement Award.

Gill took home an award for Hitler: The Rise of Evil (2004), and was nominated for Joan of Arc (2000).

Morgenthau earned his first ASC Award last year for Game of Thrones, and has nominations for Boardwalk Empire (2011), Life on Mars (2009) and The Five People You Meet in Heaven (2005).

This is Levy’s fourth nomination, having been nominated for House of Lies (2013), The Life and Death of Peter Sellers (2005) and 24 (2002).

Rowe and Rawi have both previously been nominated for The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone (2004) and The Tudors (2009), respectively.

Benning, Bernstein, Greene, Haellmigk, Lloyd, Luther and McClure are all first-time nominees.

HBO and Starz led the pack with three nominations each, followed by Showtime with two noms. Amazon, Comedy Central, The CW, Fox, NBC and National Geographic Channel are also represented.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
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.
