Company 3 Appoints Claire McGrane to Lead UK Facility


LR-claire_mcgrane-1001Post house Company 3 announced Claire McGrane is joining its London facility to lead the UK team. In doing so, she also joins Company 3’s senior global management team.

Involved in the digital intermediate process since 2000, McGrane was the DI producer on Cold Mountain, one of the first films in London to go through the DI process. Her success in DI was recognized in 2003 when she moved to Framestore, where she was tasked with developing their DI offerings and expanding the team. The subsequent three years saw the business grow into an internationally recognized DI house, working on most features in the market at that time.

Stefan Sonnenfeld, president of Company 3, said, “We are delighted to have secured someone of Claire’s calibre to join the Company 3 team. It is rare to find the combination of technical and operational knowledge together with the empathy required to support the creative vision of the filmmaker. Claire brings a fresh approach to Company 3, which will see the London facility be more in tune with clients’ needs. Having someone so deeply embedded within the film and TV community in London is exciting for us. ”

“The range of projects completed here is inspirational,”said McGrane, “I believe Company 3 is unique in its ability to attract a blend of studio and independent films from across Europe and the US. To have the opportunity to lead the team in London is one of those game-changing moments for me.”

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.
