The HPA Calls for Entries for Creativity and Innovation Awards


The Hollywood Post Alliance announced its call for entries for the 2011 HPA Judges Award for Creativity and Innovation in postproduction. Recognizing excellence in postproduction, whether in creative storytelling or technical innovation, the Creativity and Innovation Award will be bestowed at the 6th Annual HPA Awards, Nov. 10, 2011 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.

Now in its third year, the Creativity and Innovation Award acknowledges companies and individuals who have demonstrated innovative thought and contribution to the postproduction process or to the postproduction industry through the use of new approaches, tools, workflows and ideas that help enhance the post process from a technical, creative or efficiency perspective. These carefully chosen and discretionary acknowledgements recognize unique creative projects or other types of content; workflows, proprietary technical developments, hardware or software toolsets, or creative approaches or achievements worthy of recognition.

A jury of peers will review submissions and select the winners in late August. Submissions are due by Aug. 19. For more information, visit:

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.
