The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) has named three winners for the 2015 ASC Gordon Willis Student Heritage Awards, which are designed to showcase the artistic abilities of the next generation of filmmakers. The honors were announced Saturday night during a ceremony at the organization’s clubhouse.

The winning students and their projects are:

Graduate Award Winner

Steven Holloway from American University for The Defeat x3

Undergraduate Award Winner

Nicolas Aguilar Ketchum from Chapman University for Run

Documentary Award Winner

Rob Scribner of Full Sail University for Warbird Pilot: Behind The Visor

The society’s Heritage Award is renamed each year in memory of a different ASC member “who has made an unforgettable impact on the art and craft of cinematography.” This year’s award was dedicated to Gordon Willis, ASC, known as The Prince of Darkness for his penchant for dramatic low-light photography. He is best for his cinematography on the first two Godfather films, and for his collaboration with director Woody Allen on numerous films including Manhattan.

Commented ASC President Richard Crudo: “This is a fabulous honor and I should hope each of them embraces the spirit of the legend for whom this award was named.”

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.
