Publicists Announce 50th Anniversary Luncheon


The publicists of the International Cinematographers Guild (IATSE Local 600) have set the date of the 50th anniversary ICG Publicists Awards Luncheon. It will be Feb. 22, 2013 in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel, positioned, as usual, two days before the Oscars.

Major celebrities have always attended this event, but the golden anniversary is expected to attract an unusually glittering crowd.

“This golden anniversary celebration will reflect the glitz and excitement that publicists bring to the entertainment industry,” said ICG president Steven Poster. “This promises to be a highlight of the 2013 awards season.”

“There is no question that publicists are integral to the ultimate success of movies and television shows,” said awards committee chairman Henri Bollinger, who has been involved with the luncheon since its inception and has served as chairman for the past 31 years. “This is our annual opportunity to champion our craft and our creativity.”

Awards are presented in the following categories: Motion Picture Showman of the Year, Television Showman of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Maxwell Weinberg Publicist Award for a Television Campaign and separately for a Movie Campaign, the Les Mason Award for Career Achievement in Publicity, Excellence in Unit Still Photography and the Bob Yeager Award for Community Service.

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.
