Deluxe-owned VFX studio Method Studios has named Bill Tlusty as vice president in Vancouver. Tlusty will be responsible for supervising operations and growth of the facility, which currently employs more than 200 artists.

Method’s Vancouver studio recently worked with 20th Century Fox on The Maze Runner, Paramount Pictures on Transformers: Age of Extinction and The Weinstein Co. on The Giver.

Tlusty has worked in the visual effects industry for 16 years, most recently serving as executive producer for Rhythm & Hues in California. While at R&H, beginning in 2005, he was lead executive on movies including VFX Academy Award-winner Life of Pi and the nominated Snow White and the Huntsman. Prior to joining R&H, Tlusty worked for Industrial Light & Magic, serving on all three Star Wars prequels and other blockbusters.

“Method Studios are working on some fantastic productions at the moment, such as Jupiter Ascending and Guardians of the Galaxy, and it’s clear to me that I’ve landed a fantastic opportunity,” said Tlusty. “We have a very strong talent pool here in Vancouver and across all Method’s studios. I aim to take advantage of the artistry and technology that the company has nurtured and build upon that.”

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.
