Greg Talmage has joined animation, VFX and design company Blur Studio as executive producer. An entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience in creative services, Talmage comes to Blur from Iron Claw, a production company that he co-founded in 2008. Talmage will help guide the studio’s growth in games, commercials, VFX and film projects, and drive opportunities for Blur’s emerging pool of directors.

“I’ve always been a fan of Blur. Their work has emotional impact and authentic, human resonance. Blur pushes the creative concept until it’s absolutely memorable and hard-hitting,” said Talmage.

Talmage began his entertainment career at DreamWorks in marketing in the late ’90s and then gravitated towards design and short-form projects, rising through the ranks as a producer at companies that included Imaginary Forces, Transistor Studios, Troika and Logan, where he managed projects for major brands such as Microsoft, Apple and Electronic Arts.

In addition to bringing Talmage on board, Blur has promoted three long time artists to leadership roles within the company. Director Dave Wilson will assume creative director responsibilities, while former VFX/CG supervisor Kevin Margo will be directing commercials, shorts and content for video game marketing campaigns. Previously the most senior CG supervisor at Blur, Jerome Denjean will now oversee all department leads as head CG supervisor, in addition to managing projects.

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.
