Yana Collins Lehman, Chair of the Post New York Alliance (PNYA), will be taking part in a panel for the Omni Cultural TV Virtual Fest about the Future of Television Production.

The panel will take place on Tuesday, Decemrber 8 from 4:10 to 4:55pm EST, and she will be joined by

New York Production Alliance Chair Flo Mitchell-Brown with Filmmaker and Author Heather Hale moderating.

From the panel description:

When Covid-19 arrived in the United States, New York City and other cities around the country went into lockdown, forcing many businesses to alter working methods overnight. Television production and post-production companies shifted to remote and/or socially distanced work environments, and adopted other measures to keep employees and clients safe. Now, even with promising vaccines on the horizon, it appears that many of those alternative practices are here to stay.

Respected leaders of New York’s production and post-production community, Lehman and Mitchell-Brown will describe how companies in the state have survived and, in some cases, flourished. They will discuss best practices and offer advice on what production and post-production companies need to do to maximize the opportunities ahead.

In a statement, Lehman added, “The New York post-production community was hit hard by the pandemic, but companies have shown tremendous adaptability and resilience. Our community was among the first to adopt remote technologies that allowed people to continue to work safely, and others around the country have followed our lead. The past year has been challenging, but New York City continues to prove that it is great place to shoot and finish shows.”

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.
