The Producers Guild of America (PGA) announced Saturday, January 28, 2017 as the date for its 28th Annual Producers Guild Awards, which will be presented at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. Donald De Line and Amy Pascal will serve as awards chairs. The 2017 Producers Guild Awards will honor excellence in motion picture, television and new media productions, as well as some of the living legends who shape the profession.

Donald De Line is a producer and executive, known for films such as The Italian Job (2003) and I Love You, Man (2009). His upcoming projects include Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One (currently in production), and Zach Braff directed film Going In Style, which will be released by Warner Bros./ New Line in early 2017. Amy Pascal is a film producer and formerly served as chairperson of the Motion Pictures Group of Sony Pictures and co-chairperson of SPE. Her films include the upcoming release of Ghostbusters on July 15, 2016, as well as Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) and The Girl In The Spider’s Web.

The Guild’s Awards submission website is now active and accepting submissions for Producers Guild Awards eligibility in all categories.  Producers and companies wishing to submit their productions should do so at

This year, the Guild is effecting a transition in its award eligibility period for television productions, moving towards a calendar year.  To accommodate this shift, the award eligibility period for most television series production has been extended for the 28th annual Producers Guild Awards.  For all television productions—with the exception of long-form series/specials and sports programming, which already run on a calendar year—the eligibility period for the 2017 Producers Guild Awards is June 1, 2015 – December 31, 2016. Accordingly, the submission deadline for these television categories has moved from the spring to the fall and is now September 30, 2016.

Starting with the 2018 Awards, the regular 12-month period for television award eligibility will resume, covering programs premiering January 1, 2017- December 31, 2017.

Delta Air Lines, the Official Airline of the PGA, is a sponsor of the 2017 Producers Guild Awards.

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.
