Salt Lake City Advertising Agency Expands into Film and TV Production


LR-STS_OfficePhotos_1-emailLR-STS_OfficePhotos_1Super Top Secret, a digital advertising agency in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City, announced the launch of STS Studios – the company’s new venture into the film and TV industry. The company has hired Chris Moore as partner and senior vice president of production for STS Studios

“I’m excited to be joining such a talented and high-powered creative team,” said Moore. “I’m really looking forward to leading the STS Studios’ charge into new avenues of business in film, television, and branded media production.”

With a 20-year career in film, television and commercial productions, Moore’s experience ranges from large-scale studio film productions such as Apollo 13 and Waterworld, to smaller independent projects such as El Superstar and Something Like A Business. In addition to his producing experience on theatrical film projects, Moore also has extensive experience developing and producing high-profile TV shows like Kings of Crash – which is currently airing on the Discovery Network – and past series such as Shark Wranglers, Training For the Apocalypse and Shark Men for the History and National Geographic Channels. Moore is a member of the Director’s Guild of America.

“Chris’s experience and expertise has already proven to be an invaluable compliment to our advertising, design and interactive departments,” said Ryan Martindale, executive creative director at STS. “We’re constantly creating content for every imaginable medium for our clients, and with the addition of STS Studios, we can finally bring all of our production in-house. We’re excited about expanding into film and TV development and already have a new line up of shows in the pipeline. It’s a big day at STS.”

The proposed 14,000 square-foot building that will house STS Studios is part of old film row and used to serve as studio space for the likes of MGM, Paramount and RKO back in the 1930s.

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.
