ASC Announces Spotlight Award Nominees

-

The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has nominated three cinematographers for the Spotlight Award. This award is designed to recognize outstanding cinematography in features and documentaries that are typically screened at film festivals, internationally or in limited theatrical release. The winner will be announced at the 29th Annual ASC Awards on Feb. 15, at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.

The nominees are:

Peter Flinckenberg, FSC for Concrete Night (Betoniyö)

Darius Khondji, AFC, ASC for The Immigrant

Daniel Landin, BSC for Under the Skin

“These nominees have created some of the more inspiring and imaginative visuals our members have seen recently,” says ASC Awards chairman Lowell Peterson. “We’re proud to recognize their innovative work, and we hope at the same time to raise the profile of these films, so more audiences have a chance to see their outstanding imagery.”

For the Spotlight Award, ASC members submitted entries for consideration which went before a Blue Ribbon panel that chose the nominees. All active members may vote to select the winner.

Concrete Night has been at festivals since its debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film festival. The Immigrant premiered at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and received a limited international release. Under the Skin was unveiled at Telluride in 2013 and distributed in limited theaters worldwide.

Last year, Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski won the inaugural ASC Spotlight Award for Ida, which has earned accolades around the globe. Ida is nominated for best cinematography and best foreign language film in the 87th Academy Awards.

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.
