Bochner arrives with more than 20 years of experience and credits on more than 50 television series, as well as numerous features, commercials and music videos. His first project at Chainsaw will be the HBO series The Leftovers.

Bochner previously worked at Modern VideoFilm for more than 15 years. His recent credits include Madame Secretary for CBS, Sleepy Hollow for Fox, Legends for TNT, Jane the Virgin for CW, and Tyrant for FX. He also graded the debut season of The Leftovers. He got his start in post at Pacific Ocean Post and later worked at Varitel Video and EDS Digital Studios. At Chainsaw, he will operate a Da Vinci Resolve system in a newly-equipped grading suite.

An avid photographer, Bochner brings an artistic eye to color grading along with a passionate interest in storytelling. “Coloring is a very creative activity,” he said. “I enjoy working with directors and DPs to create aesthetically pleasing images. The opportunity to work with new footage every day is very rewarding.”

Current scripted projects at the facility include Game of Thrones and Pretty Little Liars. “Chainsaw is a wonderful facility and I’m very excited to get to work,” Bochner said. “I’m impressed with the talent and resources that they have assembled here and look forward to contributing to the company’s further growth and success.”

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.
