ASIFA-Hollywood Calls for Entries for 2011 Annie Awards


ASIFA-Hollywood announced its call for entries for the 39th annual Annie Awards. The awards, recognizing excellence in animation, are scheduled for Feb. 4, 2012 at UCLA’s Royce Hall in Los Angeles.

The 2011 Annie Awards will be presented in 28 categories, including two new categories added to the slate this year – outstanding editorial in an animated feature and outstanding editorial in an animated television production. A “members’ favorite” award has also been added, but will be on a separate ballot on the Annies website. While Annie voting is limited to professional members, all members, both professional and associate, will be able to vote on this award.

The deadline for submissions is Oct. 14. The deadline to join ASIFA-Hollywood or to renew membership in order to participate in the Annie Award voting is Nov. 4.

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.
