COVID-19 Resources for the NYWIFT Community


NYWIFT.logo_1The New York Women in Film & Television (NYWIFT) have announced several strategies to help their members in response to the coronavirus. The first of which is an online survey for members to keep the NYWIFT informed of the impact COVID-19 has had on their role in the media and entertainment industry.

NYWIFT Talks, a weekly series that will bring updated news and information about the impact of COVID-19 on the industry, will have industry professionals discussing news on theatrical releases, digital advances, virtual tools, festival opportunities, production updates and more.

Programmer Barbara Vasconez has made member programming available online, and the membership team Katie Chambers and Sara Tandoi have put together a comprehensive directory of what is available to the members, which is live on their homepage and will be updated. Action and concerns can be expressed to the government officials in the sample letter sent by NYWIFT Board member Kathryn O’Kane to her representatives.

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.
