SIM Digital announced that Brennen Dicker has joined its Atlanta office as postproduction manager. Dicker, who previously served as director of postproduction sales at Crawford Media Services, has experience in all aspects of film and television production in Atlanta’s production community. In his new role, Dicker will lead SIM Atlanta’s Bling Digital unit which provides data management, dailies processing and postproduction services to film and television productions. SIM Digital also maintains facilities in Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and Beijing.

Dicker will work alongside Ann DeGuire, general manager of SIM Digital, Atlanta, in growing the company’s business in the Southeast. SIM Digital provides both production needs, such as camera equipment, and postproduction services, such as on-set and near-set dailies, Avid rentals and finishing services. The company currently provides production and postproduction services for both episodic television series and film productions, television titles including CW’s The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, and Sundance Channel’s Rectify.

“I’ve been familiar with SIM Digital for several years and know it as a very buttoned-up company with a great reputation,” said Dicker. “I see tremendous opportunities for SIM to grow further. Its ability to package camera equipment and other gear with post services is a distinct advantage.”

Dicker joined Crawford Media Services (originally Crawford Communications) in 2004. Earlier in his career, he was executive producer and principal of American Mongrel Productions, a Chicago production company specializing in commercials, documentaries and sports programming. His background also includes work in broadcast television as a producer, camera operator, audio engineer and assistant editor.

Dicker has been active in many Atlanta-area service organizations. He serves on the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Atlanta Advisory Council, the Georgia Production Partnership (GPP) board, the Metro Atlanta Chamber advisory board, and the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival steering committee. He is also on the board for The Frazer Center, a nonprofit that helps children and adults with disabilities.

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.
