The American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) will participate in upcoming industry panels on May 19 at J.L. Fisher, and June 2 at Cine Gear Expo.

The June 2 panel at Cine Gear Expo will be held at 1 p.m. in the Sherry Lansing Theater. ASC members will delve into the artistic nature of cinematography, using real-world examples to demonstrate the process of creating a visual style for projects based on each member’s experiences. The panel will feature: Dion Beebe, ASC, ACS; Stephen H. Burum, ASC; Patrick Cady, ASC; James L. Carter, ASC; George Spiro Dibie, ASC; Michael Goi, ASC; Karl Walter Lindenlaub, ASC; Donald A. Morgan, ASC; Dave Perkal, ASC; Roberto Schaefer, ASC; Dante Spinotti, ASC, AIC, and Haskell Wexler, ASC.

Cine Gear Expo is held at The Studios at Paramount in Hollywood. Visit www.cinegearexpo.com for details.

Both panel discussions are structured so that questions from the audience drive the conversation, and will be moderated by Dibie, chairman of the ASC education and public outreach committee for the organization.

“As production and postproduction become more intertwined in today’s filmmaking environments, the role of the cinematographer as artist of the images is more important than ever,” said Dibie. “The ASC is dedicated to supporting emerging filmmakers, sharing our knowledge, and collaborating with all departments in the creation of moving images.”

Dibie noted that ASC members frequently speak at colleges and universities around the world, as well as at the ASC Clubhouse in Hollywood, where many film school students join members for intimate discussions regarding movie making.

“We open our doors to anyone studying screenwriting, directing, producing, design, acting, etc. because it takes a collective effort to succeed in the process of telling a story for the screen with compelling visuals,” Dibie added.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
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.
