Creative editorial shop Uppercut has added editor Danielle Sclafani to their roster. Sclafani joins Uppercut after serving as an editor at Crew Cuts, where she spent nearly seven years cutting spots for the likes of CVS, Starbucks, GE, Accenture and IBM, among others. Her distinct visual storytelling style and passion for creative collaboration have fostered a reputable list of repeat clients, and a reel that showcases a wide variety of styles and genres. Sclafani continues to allow her film background to inform her work in the commercial space, extracting compelling narrative and emotion from the script to convey stories that speak to the masses.

“It’s great to join a company that is constantly pushing the envelope in visual style, puts emphasis on collaboration and takes storytelling to the next level,” noted Sclafani. “Micah has set the creative bar high at Uppercut, and I am thrilled to be joining the very talented and curated collective of editors.”

Danielle shares our ideals and work ethic, and brings a strong point of view and incredible style to the table. She is a perfect fit for Uppercut.”

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.
