CAS: 56th Annual Awards Timeline


CAS_Logo_FaviconThe Cinema Audio Society (CAS) has set the date and timeline for the 56th Annual CAS Awards, which will be held at Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown, as well as the CAS Student Recognition Award timeline. The CAS Awards recognize Outstanding Sound Mixing in film and television, Outstanding Products for Production and Post-Production, as well as the recipient of the CAS Student Recognition Award.  Recipients for the CAS Career Achievement Award and CAS Filmmaker Award will be announced later in the year.

Due to changes in the overall awards season calendar, there are considerable changes in the CAS timeline. The CAS has also taken this opportunity to change the television categories eligibility dates to contenders that air between January 1, 2019 and October 31, 2019. These dates have been chosen in order to prevent any “orphaned” episodes that may not have completed production by the entry deadline. The timeline for next year will be November 1, 2019 thru October 31, 2020.  Providing an eligibly period that ends close to our entry deadline allows more members of the television community to have the opportunity to submit their work, participate and be celebrated. The Motion Picture timeline will remain January 1, 2019 thru December 31, 2019.

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.
