STS-GRIOT has announced that editor Sarah Fisher has been named partner. Fisher began her career as an assistant editor for GTN/Ringside Creative, where she quickly ascended the ranks. Prior to her post at STS-GRIOT, she most recently served as a creative editor for Pluto Post in Birmingham, Mich. Before Fisher arrived at STS-GRIOT she worked in both the large post house environment and the smaller boutique type shop. “I think working in both environments gives you a very well-rounded perspective of the business,” said Terry King, owner STS-GRIOT. “Going from a very large company with a dedicated engineering department to one where we had to solve technical problems on our own was one of the best things to ever happen to me. I became much more technical and self-sufficient in a number of areas.”

“Sarah’s technical knowledge of both the evolving production and postproduction process along with her incredible creative instincts, make her the perfect partner to help move the company forward,” King continued. “Sarah will be instrumental in building STS-GRIOT relationships both locally and nationally.”

Since joining STS-GRIOT almost two years ago, a lot has changed. “At the time I came over, we were still partnered with a larger postproduction facility, and there were a lot of things that needed to be changed, processes, workflows and equipment,” Fisher said. “As we separated and went back to being our own entity, there was the perfect opportunity to marry the ideas that Terry and I both shared of what we envisioned for the company going forward.”

“The group we have here is one of the best I have had the pleasure of being surrounded with,” Fisher continued. “I am very excited about the future of STS-GRIOT and I’m truly humbled by the opportunity that Terry has given me. I’m very much looking forward to the challenges the future holds.”

Fisher has recently completed projects for GM Global, Chevrolet, Chrysler and the U.S. Navy.

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.
