The Make-Up Artists and Hair Stylists Guild, Local 706, will honor Johnny Depp with the first ever Distinguished Artisan award. The awards ceremony, returning after a hiatus of 10 years, will be held on Feb. 15 at Paramount Studios. Joel Harlow, Depp’s make-up artist, will present the award.

Beginning with Tim Burton’’s Edward Scissorhands in 1990, Depp is known for creating indelible characterizations. His iconic performances in Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and of course the continuing Pirates of the Caribbean series, are among the 50 plus roles he has played, which have been brought to life in partnership with his make-up artists and hair stylists.

Harlow is an Academy Award winning make-up artist whose recent collaborations with Depp include Mortdecai, Into the Woods (2014), Transcendence (2014), The Lone Ranger (2013), Dark Shadows (2012), The Rum Diary (2011), Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End (2007) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (2006). Harlow is also known for his work on Star Trek (2009), for which he won an Academy Award.

Lifetime achievement awards will be given to Academy Award winners Gail Ryan and Dick Smith. Additional awards will honor nominees for outstanding achievements in motion pictures, television, commercials and live theater.

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.
