Sight, Sound & Story: Mentors Inside the Cutting Room Live Online Debut


MEW.SSS.logo2Manhattan Edit Workshop’s Sight, Sound & Story’s 2020 event series format is moving online.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sight, Sound & Story has delayed its live in-person events (June’s Post Summit & November’s The Art of Cinematography) until 2021.  Until that time the event series is launching a live online monthly event series starting on July 9th.

This series will feature unique guests and subjects that will vary between editing, cinematography, and all aspects of filmmaking.  These live events will give attendees a chance to ask questions and even win raffle prizes from the event’s sponsors. These events will be live and free to the public.

Inside Episode I: Film editors have been called invisible artists, the final storytellers, unsung heroes. They are also mentors, passionate about their work and eager to pass on their wisdom and knowledge. Film historian Bobbie O’Steen moderates a panel that focuses on three very talented editors – Carol Littleton, ACE (E.T. the Extra-terrestrial, The Big Chill), Norman Buckley, ACE (The O.C., Gossip Girl), and Brandi Bradburn, ACE (Grey’s Anatomy, This Is Us) – who have helped many aspiring editors achieve their goals.

The film editors will discuss their own career choices that led them down paths to success and screen some of their work to explain what they learned about shaping compelling and entertaining stories. They’ll also give advice on how to build and nurture collaborative relationships and how to advocate for a healthy work/life balance.

The next Sight, Sound & Story: Live event will be on August 12th.  Please go to for up to date information.

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.
