PNYA’s Next Post Break Will Host the NOS4A2 Post Team


Post BreakPost New York Alliance (PNYA) has announced the topic for its next Post Break free monthly video conference, which will take place this Thursday, October 29 at 4pm EDT. Titled Lessons Learned When Covid Hit: Post/Production Collaboration,  it will feature the post-production team from the AMC/BBC America series NOS4A2 to talk about how they switched gears in order to finish the show’s second season during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Post was in full swing for the second season when the pandemic struck, so editorial and visual effects had to figure out how to continue without missing a beat. Joining moderator Lauren Ritchie, a 25-year VFX producer, will be Post Production Supervisor Shana Fischer Huber, Zoic Creative Director Nate Overstrom and AMC Networks VFX Producer Carly Wilson as they reveal how they did it and what they learned along the way. Moderating the discussion will be freelance VFX producer Lauren Ritchie.

You can and should register in advance for the event here.

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.
