CAS Announces Support for ACE Petition


Cinema Audio Society president David Fluhr sent a letter to all members of the society yesterday announcing the organization’s support for the American Cinema Editors’ petition to secure recognition for excellence in film editing from film festivals and awards presentations that currently recognize cinematography and/or production design.

“Recognition for all the below-the-line crafts involved in filmmaking is a constant, uphill battle, which we are all waging everyday,” said Fluhr. “By standing in solidarity with ACE and signing the petition, we are forging new ground and a spirit of cooperation among the guilds. The CAS board of directors believes this action moves us all a step closer to the recognition of the creative process of all the crafts and their contribution to the success of our industry.”

During the past year, ACE has been actively pursuing film festivals and awards presentations, domestic and international that do not currently recognize the category of film editing.

MPEG and MPSE, among others, have also announced support for the petition.

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.
