Encore senior colorist Thor Roos has been promoted to vice president of business strategy for the postproduction and VFX company’s Vancouver office, reporting to executive vice president Bill Romeo. In the new role, Roos will focus on expanding Encore’s presence in Vancouver and will continue color grading select projects. A presence in the Vancouver post industry for more than 20 years, Roos joined Encore in 2012.

“When it comes to postproduction workflows, Encore Vancouver has the leading talent in the area and a reputation to match. I look forward to building on my long-standing relationships and introducing clients to our well-honed 4K capabilities,” said Roos.

Starting his career transferring film negatives and prints to video, Roos discovered a passion for film, a love he’s maintained as the industry transitioned to primarily digital workflows. Roos has blended this passion and years of experience with his creativity and knowledge to make him one of Vancouver’s most sought after colorists. Currently using Blackmagic Design‘s DaVinci Resolve, he recently completed grading the first season of The Intruders for BBC America, ABC reality show The Quest and The Weinstein Company animated feature film Escape from Planet Earth, which was done in 3D as well as 2D. In addition to Encore, Roos has held various positions at Technicolor and Command Post.

The Vancouver arm of Encore was established in 2012. Presently, the facility is working on The Flash, Arrow and Once Upon a Time.

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.
