Postproduction and visual effects company Encore has appointed Jennifer Tellefsen (JT) to vice president of business development, VFX, for Encore offices worldwide. Having served as VP of business development, Post, at the Hollywood location since 2009, JT helped Encore complete its transition to file-based workflows and will now focus on piloting the company’s visual effects department under Tom Kendall, SVP, VFX.

“JT comes from a diverse background rooted in VFX and has a deep understanding of how projects move through our facility. She’s incredibly conscious of the time constraints studios face in delivering episodic content as well as the effort required by our artists to craft compelling visuals for a given series. We’ve been fortunate to have such a multi-talented force within our ranks and look forward to continued success,” said Encore executive vice president Bill Romeo.

“With the rise of new original programming from new entertainment platforms like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, television is experiencing a resurgence of content and the demand for VFX is greater than ever,” said Tellefsen. “Encore’s VFX department has grown more than five times over since I came on board and they recently won an Emmy for their shots on Banshee. The work that is being done by our artists is amazing, and I’m excited to be a part of the VFX division.”

In her post business development role with Encore, JT worked closely with Romeo to expand beyond traditional markets and forge strategic partnerships with outside vendors. Prior to Encore, JT spent more than a decade at Post Works Los Angeles and Technicolor, where she primarily focused on television 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.
