The Director’s Network (TDN) announced that it is now representing DP, Pierre Rouger. Rouger’s artistically-inspired, international background and his distinct take in beauty and hair has allowed him to flow from a Guess campaign to exceptional table-top work.

“We are excited to have Pierre Rouger join our team,” said Jeff Lewis, TDN’s senior agent/owner. “His diversity, the benefit of working as a local in the L.A. and Vancouver markets, and the respect he has garnered allow for a smooth transition into our expanding DP department.”

After camera assisting for director Michel Gondry, Rouger was awarded his first job as a cinematographer on Gondry’s Foo Fighters video “Everlong.” Since then, Pierre has shot numerous commercials and music videos, perfecting his style with some directors including, Matthew Rolston, Traktor, Baker Smith, Mikon van Gastel, Tom Kuntz, Paul Hunter, David LaChapelle, Jim Sonzero, Arni & Kinski, Len Wiseman and Jaume. Some of the artists Rouger has photographed include Charlize Theron, Halle Berry, A Perfect Circle, Beyoncé, Moby, Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, Beck, and Jay-Z.

One of Rouger’s projects was ED I HIDE, a short film exploring the conflicting elements of one’s own identity amidst the confusion of relationships. ED I HIDE was screened at more than 15 festivals nationwide and internationally and was acclaimed for its clever storytelling and compelling cinematography.

A graduate of Columbia College in 1985 with a B.A. in motion pictures, Rouger spent the next 13 years as a camera assistant for such renowned cinematographers as Marc Reshovsky, Harris Savides and his original inspiration Michael Chapman.

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.
