LOGAN has added ex-Superfad partner Kevin Batten as its new L.A. managing director. His immediate focus will include helping to build up LOGAN’s talent pool, creating new revenue streams and developing a cohesive brand message across both offices.

“Kevin brings a wealth of experience executing in a very complicated, constantly evolving industry, which makes him a perfect fit for LOGAN,” noted LOGAN founder/ECD Alexei Tylevich. “We are thrilled to have him on board as we continue to build our New York presence and take on more work than ever before. Kevin’s role will be invaluable as we enter the new phase of growth for the company.”

“Alexei and Ben are credited with creation and execution of some of the most iconic campaigns in advertising, but that’s not the reason I accepted their offer,” said Batten. “What separates LOGAN from the pack is that they are highly creative yet understand the nuance of this very fickle business.”

Batten has delivered AICP, CLIO and Cannes award-winning commercial campaigns for Visa Olympics, PlayStation, Sprint and Target. Prior to Superfad, Batten held various positions at Brand New School, Deutsch and Digital Kitchen. He studied broadcast journalism at Marietta College and holds a media arts degree from the University of South Carolina.

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.
