Creative directors Danny Yoon and Duy Nguyen, and executive producer Mike Pryor have renamed their boutique visual effects and postproduction company and moved to new digs in Santa Monica. Formerly known as 1.1 VFX, the company will now operate as Mr. Wolf and work out of new headquarters located within the offices of commercial production company Bully Pictures. The company offers visual effects, compositing, editorial finishing and digital color correction.

1.1 VFX was founded in 2005 as the finishing arm of Motion Theory and continued on at edit house Cutters. Now in its new space as Mr. Wolf, the company plans to target clients across all media. Mr. Wolf’s credits include the recent feature hit American Hustle as well as television work for From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and the FXX series Ali G Rezurection. Commercial work includes spots for Toyota, Jaguar, Fiat, Burger King and Pizza Hut.

Bully Pictures provides live-action production for commercials and digital content, including recent work for such brands as Comcast, Verizon, Nissan, Holiday Inn, Kohl’s and Home Depot. But as Bully often produces projects that include visual effects and postproduction components, it will be able to offer added value to its clients by teaming with Mr. Wolf.

Yoon is a visual effects artist and graphic designer with nearly two decades of experience handling main title design and graphics design for commercials, feature films and television. His background includes stints at Imaginary Forces, Digital Domain and Motion Theory/Mirada.

Nguyen began his career as a Flame artist at Filmworkers in Chicago. He has also worked as a senior artist at Imaginary Forces, Yu + co, Brand New School, Motion Theory, Ring of Fire and Hydraulx. His credits include ads for Coca Cola, PlayStation 2, Budweiser, Honda, Sony, Nissan and Nintendo, the feature films Day After Tomorrow, Constantine and War of the Worlds, and the television shows Medium, Fear Itself, Cane, Angela’s Eyes, Kill Point and Dexter.

Pryor’s career also spans 20 years and encompasses work for feature films, television and commercials. His background includes producing roles with Cinesite, Sony Pictures Imageworks, Jim Henson’s Creature Shop and Stan Winston Studio.

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.
