Optimus announced that commercial film professional Lisa Masseur has joined One at Optimus as executive producer. An industry veteran, Masseur will focus growing the production side of the creative services company.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Lisa to our team,” said Optimus president Tom Duff. “Her combination of smarts, passion and compassion make her one of the most highly respected people in our industry.”

Masseur – who has worked with clients such as Samsung, McDonald’s, Trek, Sears, Hasbro, USPS and BMO Harris Bank – was most recently executive producer/managing director at Radar Studios, where she oversaw all production, postproduction work and marketing efforts. During her more than seven years there, she helped build the company into one of the most competitive production houses in Chicago. Before that, Masseur spent three years as executive producer at Ebel Productions, where she focused on commercial production. Prior to that, she was a freelance producer in Chicago. She began her career working on TV series and features such as Groundhog Day, Hoffa, A League of Their Own, Sleepless in Seattle, Mighty Ducks 3, and The Untouchables.

“I’m so excited to team up with Lisa,” said One at Optimus director of production Craig Leffel. “With our combined experience and understanding of bundled production, there is an incredible strength and positivity in joining forces.”

“Optimus and One have amazingly talented teams,” said Masseur. “From the award-winning directors and editors to the industry-renowned designers and finishing artists, there is such a great enthusiasm among the staff here. They are passionate about creating content, and are always coming up with ideas – both for clients and on their own. I look forward to harnessing that energy into creative content for our clients and longer form work as we continue to grow One and leverage this seamless production model.”

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.
