The Hit House Relocates and Signs Composer Danail Getz


The Hit House, a custom music and sound design company working in the feature film, trailer, television, and advertising industries, has relocated to new studios in South Torrance, Calif. The company’s new address is 4611 Milne Drive, South Torrance, CA 90505. Also, The Hit House has signed trailer composer Danail Getz.

“We are excited to add Danail’s considerable talents to our roster,” said Sally House, executive producer/co-founder. “His high-energy, action-packed style gives us yet another soundscape to explore.”

Getz graduated from The Classical Conservatory of Sofia in Bulgaria and was awarded a full scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston. He got his start in the film scoring business in Hollywood by working in the music preparation teams for films like the Star Wars trilogy, Harry Potter and Star Trek, and for global superstars like Elton John, Barbra Streisand and Celine Dion.

Soon Getz was composing, orchestrating, and contributing music to the animated movie sequels of Cinderella and The Land Before Time, and spoof comedy films Superhero Movie and Scary Movie 4, while also providing orchestrations to such horror films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Hostel. From there, Danail switched to the world of trailers. His music has been used in hundreds of trailers including those promoting Prometheus, Ice Age: Continental Drift, Men In Black 3, The Hunger Games, Star Trek, The King’s Speech, Hereafter, Despicable Me, Iron Man 2, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Transformers, Pirates of the Caribbean and Terminator Salvation.

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.
