An Exclusive Clip about Creating the Look for Dominic Cooke’s The Courier

Earlier this year, Dominic Cooke‘s spy-thriller, The Courier, opened in theaters, and it’s now available on DVD, blu-ray and on Digital.

In the movie, Benedict Cumberbatch plays British businessman Greville Wynne, who is recruited by a CIA operative (Rachel Brosnahan) and MI-6 to pass top secret documents with a Soviet officer named Oleg Penkovsky (Merab Ninidze) in order to prevent a nuclear confrontation with Russia during the time of the Cuban Missile Crisis.

In Below the Line‘s exclusive clip, which you can watch below, Director Dominic Cooke talks about how he developed the look of the film (with Production Designer Suzie Davis) and particularly how they tried to make London and Moscow have more of a unified look and tone as a contrast.

The Courier is now available on DVD, blu-ray and on Digital.

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.
