Safety for Sarah Calls for a Moment of Silence


LR-Safety for SarahTo commemorate the second anniversary of camera assistant Sarah Jones‘ tragic death on the set of the independent film Midnight Rider, The Sarah Jones Film Foundation is calling on production crews around the world to observe a moment of silence Feb. 20.

Film, television and commercial productions can commemorate their moment of silence by posting photos on the “Safety For Sarah” Facebook page (, Twitter @slatesforsarah or Instagram with #safetyforsarah.

The foundation is also reminding filmmakers to speak up if something doesn’t look safe.

Richard Jones, Sarah’s father, wants the moment to bring attention to film safety so that what happened to his daughter when safety was pushed aside never happens again.

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.
