Editor Adam Pillon Joins Beast Detroit


Commercial editorial house Beast, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, has added editor Adam Pillon to its Detroit roster. Adam joins Beast with more than 12 years of experience. Some of his previous clients include Team Detroit, Campbell Ewald, GlobalHue, Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Carmichael Lynch, McCann Erickson, Driven and Doner.

“This is a huge win for Beast Detroit,” said executive producer Brian Mettler. “Adam is Detroit flavor at its finest. He’s a phenomenal editor and Beast is fortunate to have him.”

Pillon admits that, when he first sat down to edit, he had no idea what editing actually was. But through a self-taught crash course and the help of childhood friends, now coworkers, Adam has crafted an undeniable talent that has attracted many loyal clients. “So much of the job is not about editing,” Pillon said. “What I love most about my job is collaborating with other creative individuals.”

“It’s a dream to be a part of the cache of talent that is Beast. I look forward to working with a fantastic group of people and some of the best editors in the industry.”

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.
