The HPA Sales Career Resource Group Panel Luncheon


The Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA) has announced the topic for its latest SCRG luncheon panel, “Deal Maker or Breaker: Collaboration.” The event will take place March 19 at the Beverly Garland Holiday Inn in North Hollywood, Calif. The discussion will cover how technology has nearly leveled the playing field of opportunity and the importance of collaboration, and how, now more than ever, the industry’s strengths are founded on relationships. Ben Benedetti, executive director sound editorial and digital services, Sony Pictures Entertainment will moderate.

Joining Benedetti are industry professionals, Bruce Sandzimier, VP post, ABC Studios, Lisa Black, SVP business development and enterprises, FishBowl, Steve Beres, technology architect, HBO, Michael Fink, senior visual effects supervisor and Andrea Kalas VP of archives, Paramount Pictures.

The HPA created the Sales Career Resource Group (SCRG) to further its mission of creating community among sales and marketing professionals, providing a forum of support and resources.

The last several SCRG lunches have sold out, so early registration is encouraged. For more information, visit:

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.
