Game of Thrones is Triumphant at the 2012 Creative Arts Emmy Awards

-

Game of Thrones, the HBO medieval fantasy series, won the battle at the 2012 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards held Saturday at the Nokia Theater L.A. Live in downtown Los Angeles. It had a haul of six Emmys in below-the-line categories. Shows garnering three craft Emmys included Discovery Channel’s Frozen Planet, the nature documentary series about life at the North and South Poles; and PBSMasterpiece Theater presentation of Charles DickensGreat Expectations.

Other multi-award winners: the 65th Annual Tony Awards; Boardwalk Empire; Hatfields & McCoys; Deadliest Catch; Downton Abbey; Hemingway & Gellhorn and Homeland.

The temperature sizzled into triple digits outside, the audience kept cool and pretty much collected throughout the lengthy three-and-a-half hour ceremony. “The ovens in Scotland don’t get this hot,” joshed John Lunn when he accepted the Emmy for best music composition for his score for Downton Abbey. Of the total, there was a roughly 50-50 split between awards for cinematography, production design and other creative craft contributions and a miscellany of awards honoring everything from guest acting in a series, to writing and directing for variety and non-fiction shows.

The six Emmy wins for the second season of Game of Thrones were for best art direction for a one-hour series, costumes, sound editing, sound mixing, special visual effects and single-camera, non-prosthetic makeup. The award for art direction was a tie, shared with Boardwalk Empire, which was last year’s big winner with seven Emmys in creative craft categories.

Frozen Planet won Emmys for best cinematography, sound editing and picture editing for non-fiction programming.

Great Expectations‘s three Emmys came for best art direction for a mini-series, and also costumes, and cinematography. It won a fourth award for titles.

Downton Abbey, another PBS Masterpiece series, won two below-the-line Emmys this year, for best hair and makeup and for best music.

The 65th Annual Tony Awards on CBS won Emmys for best art direction for variety or nonfiction programming and for original music and lyrics.

An edited two-hour version of the Creative Arts Emmys will be broadcast on Reelz at 8 p.m. on Sept. 22. The more widely-watched Primetime Emmy Awards where the statuettes go to popular actors follows on Sept. 23 and is broadcast on ABC. But when it comes to the most Emmy wins overall, the Creative Arts Emmys are closely monitored because a big win here often presages which show gets the most Emmys overall. Game of  Thrones now looks poised to win those bragging rights.

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.
