Portland-based VFX/postproduction software developer Red Giant released three short films – Hammer Time, Dartistry and Death is a Highway – created by Webby Award-winning director Seth Worley as part of a new series of Film Team Experiments that will roll out each month.

Packed with visual effects and running at under 60 seconds each, these short films will be accompanied by a behind-the-scenes breakdown that walks viewers through the filmmaking and postproduction process.

“When we created our first film, Plot Device, we got an unprecedented reaction and a demand for more,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, executive producer at Red Giant Films. “We’ve made six more films since then, and we hear from our customers that our films and behind-the-scenes videos inspire them to pick up a camera and create something. With Red Giant Film Team Experiments, we’re stoked to be bringing even more inspiration – but really, we’re just looking forward to having some fun and working together more.”

“Whenever we set out to create a new film, we tend to put our heads down for several months before we have an end product, and we stay pretty focused on just that,” said Worley. “This is an opportunity for our team to try new techniques, without the burden of a bigger story or deadline.”

The films will feature visual effects techniques – both practical and CGI – that achieve Hollywood-quality results on a small budget. Viewers will learn how to create amazing visuals, such as heat waves off of a bullet, Thor-like lightning effects and dangerous-looking stunt driving. Behind-the-scenes films will explain the techniques used to create each effect, showing novice and experienced filmmakers alike how they can apply the same effect to their films.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

1
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.
