Editorial company Cutters announced the addition of Heather Richardson to their staff as producer.

For the past nine years, Richardson has been a producer for Cosmo Street Editorial in New York. There, she produced commercial spots for the company’s editors and many directors, including Joachim Back, Adam Berg, Bryan Buckley, Harold Einstein, Randy Krallman, Hank Perlman, The Perlorian Brothers, Steve Miller and David Shane. Working with agency executives, some of her most recent projects were for AT&T, DirecTV, ESPN, Geico, GoDaddy, Land Rover, MasterCard, Mercedes, Samsung and Verizon.

Heather began with Cosmo Street in Los Angeles before moving to New York in 2008, and prior to that, she was a producer at the L.A. visual effects studio a52. A graduate of the University of Colorado in Boulder, she grew up north of Chicago.

“I was drawn to Cutters because of the culture that has been cultivated and the family feel that exists here,” said Richardson. “I am super excited to work with the diverse and extremely talented editors on the Cutters roster.”

“We feel very fortunate to have Heather as part of the Cutters team,” said Cindy Duffy, director of postproduction for Cutters. “It is so rare that you find someone with so much experience and the exact right skill set for the position you are looking to fill. In addition to knowing the job so well, Heather has an incredibly positive, can-do attitude, but the thing I like most about her is the fact that she just gets it. I am really looking forward to working with her.”

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.
