The Writers Guild of America has announced its motion picture nominees for the 74th Annual Writers Guild Awards, which will take place on Sunday, March 20.

Apple’s CODA continued its hot streak on Thursday, adding an Adapted Screenplay nomination to the PGA Award nod it received earlier in the day.

The original screenplay category boasts several heavy hitters, including Paul Thomas Anderson (Licorice Pizza), Wes Anderson (The French Dispatch), Adam McKay (Don’t Look Up) and Aaron Sorkin (Being the Ricardos), but King Richard scribe Zach Baylin is certainly poised for an upset.

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.
