Applications Accepted June 1 for Next $100 Million in California Tax Credits


The California Film Commission will begin accepting applications on June 1 for the next $100 million round of funding provided annually by the state’s Film & Television Tax Credit Program.

Application packets may be submitted on June 1 between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. at the Film Commission’s office (7080 Hollywood Blvd., Suite 900, Hollywood, CA 90028). Each packet received that day will be assigned a lottery number as part of a process that will determine at random which projects receive tax credits. When the entire $100 million allocation is exhausted, all remaining projects will be placed on a waiting list. Those on the list will be accepted as credits are freed up by approved projects that withdraw from the program due to scheduling delays or other production-related issues.

While new applications will continue to be accepted after the June 1 lottery, everyone is encouraged to submit on the first day given overwhelming demand.

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.
