Nice Shoes Expands Remote Network with Industry & Co.


LR-nice-shoesNew York-based Nice Shoes has added Atlanta-based post studio Industry & Co. to its network of remote partners.

Nice Shoes Remote Viewing will allow clients in Atlanta to collaborate with artists in New York in real time, with no delay. Nice Shoes engineers install a secure HD feed and a display calibrated to match exactly with the monitors in New York. Clients can work with any of the studio’s artists, including colorists Chris Ryan, Lez Rudge, Ron Sudul, Lenny Mastrandrea, and Lez Rudge, as well as creative directors James Coulson and Harry Dorrington, and VFX artists Steve Parish, Vin Roma, Jason Farber, Kevan Lee and Russ Bigsby.

Kristen Roland launched Industry & Co. to provide creative resources for film and advertising teams in Atlanta through a virtual and remote model. Roland began her career at Propaganda Films, and then was music video commissioner at Elektra, before transitioning to the agency side, primarily with BBDO since 2006. Roland relocated to Atlanta after stints in both Los Angeles and New York. After meeting Nice Shoes CEO Dominic Pandolfino, and seeing what his team had accomplished with Remote Viewing in Boston, Dallas, Miami, Detroit and New Orleans, a partnership between the two companies was quickly established.

“I am confident that this concept is just what we need for postproduction. It’s the perfect storm for this business model to launch and I am committed to delivering it. Nice Shoes has an outlet in Atlanta, and Atlanta clients have access to the amazing talent at Nice Shoes – it’s a win-win for everyone,” said Roland.

“Atlanta is one of the major hubs of commercial production and creativity. We’ve worked with clients from there for years, but we’ve seen a decline in their ability to travel to New York to supervise sessions,” said Pandolfino. “With Remote Viewing installed at Industry & Co, more agency teams will have the opportunity to provide their input during a project.”

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.
