Postproduction sound company Todd-Soundelux announced that re-recording mixer Bob Beemer has joined the organization. Beemer, whose recent credits include Last Vegas and Pitch Perfect, recently completed work on The Angriest Man in Brooklyn for director Phil Alden Robinson.

Beemer has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning on four occasions in recognition for his work on Dreamgirls (2007), Ray (2005), Gladiator (2000) and Speed (1995).

“Today’s sound professionals are faced with a relentlessly advancing motion picture industry,” said Beemer. “We must provide a safe and stable environment for filmmakers to complete their creative process, while keeping current with technology and business trends. This requires teamwork. Where I mix a film makes an enormous difference in balancing this challenge. The fellow creative people, the facilities and the management team make all the difference in how effectively and efficiently I help filmmakers. Because I have known much of the staff at Todd-Soundelux for so long, I am happy to join this group. I know that any filmmaker I work with will have the same peace of mind I do with the outstanding resources, technology, talent and support Todd-Soundelux provides.”

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.
