Formerly creative director at Artifact Design, Atlanta, Tuttle will take the creative lead on advertising projects, assemble and manage teams of artists and serve as liaison with agency and brand clients. Paek will also serve as a creative lead and head the CG team across all locations. They join Matt Motal as creative directors of the studio’s advertising division, with Pravina Sippy as executive producer.

Tuttle’s tenure at Artifact spanned a dozen years and encompassed design, animation, visual effects and live action production. His credits include multiple campaigns for Ford, Bridgestone Golf, Georgia Lottery, Cartoon Network and others. He previously spent eight years at Atlanta agency JWT as a creative supervisor and broadcast designer. He began his career as a commercial and broadcast editor.

Tuttle says he has been impressed with Mr Wolf’s growth and the unique business model established by the studio’s founders Executive Producer Mike Pryor, Creative Directors Danny Yoon and Duy Nguyen, and VFX Supervisor John Pierce. “We’ve collaborated in varying capacities for ten years,” he says. “I’ve watched as they elevated their game, especially in visual effects. When the opportunity arose to join the team, I jumped. It’s a win-win.”

His prior background includes senior artist roles at Method Studios, CVLT, The Mill, and Arsenal Film and Creative. He spent three years as a senior lighting artist at Digital Domain, where he garnered a Clio Award and a VES Award nomination.

Paek will continue to be involved in both advertising and entertainment projects. “I will fill any role that helps the company grow,” he says. “Ryan and I have similar backgrounds in advertising in terms of pitching projects and developing creative concepts. Adding our experience to Matt’s is a potent combination.”

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.
