Michael Elliot Joins the Editing Roster of Fluid


Michael Elliot
New York based editorial shop Fluid has added editor Michael Elliot to its roster. Coming to Fluid from Beast, Elliot was previously owner and lead editor at Mad River Post, where he worked closely with then EP of Mad River Post and current EP of Fluid, Laura Relovsky. The duo formerly collaborated on a variety of projects. Elliot has cut spots for such brands as AT&T, Canon, BMW, NHL, Microsoft, Tylenol and Lexus. He has worked with such agencies as Grey, BBDO, Leo Burnett, McCann Erickson, mcgarrybowen, JWT and Deutsch, among others.

Elliot has a background in both film technology and history. He rounds out the current roster at Fluid that includes Zeke O’Donnell, Jim Rubino, John Piccolo, Peter Sabatino, Robin Burchill and Heather Donosky.

“Joining Fluid is like going home. I worked for many years with Laura and she introduced me to Marc [Schwartz] and Andrew [Sherman]. Fluid has a synergy of music, sound, graphics and finishing that offers an editor like me proximity to all the elements I need and that agencies need to do the best creative work,” said Elliot.

After beginning his career as an editor of various music programs, Elliot opened Mad River Post in 1989, successfully growing the post shop in its tenure to cut commercials, music videos, documentaries and narrative features, from offices in New York, Los Angeles and Detroit. In 2009, he moved on to edit for Beast, spending five years there.

Michael recently cut the Andrew Douglas-directed U.K. drama thriller, Uwantme2killhim?, which follows a teenage boy’s descent into the dangerous places of the internet and the consequences of his actions therein.

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.
