Whitehouse Post has promoted L.A.-based Brandon Porter to editor. Born in Memphis, Porter zeroed in on an editorial career in high school and attended SCAD where he majored in film and photography. Upon graduation, Porter worked for Lab 601 in Atlanta then moved to Beast in L.A. before joining Whitehouse Post in 2010. Since then, Porter has worked with a slew of directors including Oscar nominee Fernando Meirelles (City of God), Bully Pictures’ famed surf documentarian Taylor Steele and MJZ’s Dante Ariola, on campaigns for major brands including Adidas (TBWA\Chiat\Day\LA), GE (BBDO New York), HP (180LA), BMW (Cundari) and Southwest (TBWA\Chiat\Day\LA).

“[Brandon] has the ability to balance highly visual work with documentary and narrative projects,” said Whitehouse Post creative director/editor Rick Lawley. “He has great editing instincts and has already built up quite a following with clients. He’s a talent and we are thrilled that he is part of the Whitehouse.”

Porter recently edited “Ghost Wave” for HP following extreme surfer Ian Walsh and his crew as they travel to a remote village in South Africa to hunt for a wave that has never been surfed before, and “Small Plates,” a web film for The New York Times that has quickly become one of the paper’s all-time most viewed pieces of digital content.

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.
