Band Pro Film & Digital, Inc. announced today that Ian S. Casas has joined the company’s Burbank Sales Team in the role of product manager.

A veteran Hollywood dolly & key grip, having worked on over 100 film & television productions, Casas’ professional career spans over 15 years. His grip department credits include such feature films as: Anchor Man, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, National Treasure, and War of the Worlds; award-winning episodic dramas: Mad Men, Bones, CSI: NY, House; extensive commercial projects, and the list goes on. Casas will work as the company’s dedicated dolly specialist, overseeing sales and support of the Cinetech dolly line and related grip products.

Band Pro president and CEO, Amnon Band, remarked: “Everyone knows Band Pro means professional camera packages, but that’s not all we do. Grip and camera support is just as important. Recently we started carrying the Cinetech dolly line, and it’s a serious revolution in our industry.  You mean there’s a dolly you can actually own?  I don’t have to pay forever? Ian heard what about what we were doing and wanted to be a part of it.  He’s a proven pro who’s been on every kind of production you can think of, and knows what it takes to get the job done. He’s a great resource for our clients and Band Pro is really happy to have him on board. “

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.
