London-based Lipsync Post has appointed Tom Russell to the role of colorist, effective immediately.  Russell will work across feature films, TV drama and commercials alongside the existing grading team.

Russell brings 25 years of experience gained working as a freelance colorist with many Soho-based postproduction and VFX houses, including Lipsync Post. His film credits include Michael Winterbottom’s The Face of an Angel, A Royal Night Out, Alone in Berlin and The Journey. He has also worked on TV productions such as Cider with Rosie.

‘’We have often worked with Tom as a freelancer and noticed how he always emerged from a grade with happy clients. We were delighted when the opportunity came along to appoint Tom full time as a colorist,” said James Clarke, head of DI at Lipsync Post. “Tom’s creative expertise and experience will be a great addition to our strong line up.’’

Russell joins the team of colorists that already includes Scott Goulding and Jamie Welsh.

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.
