Post New York Extends Video Conference Series Post Break


PostNYAlliance.logo.1Post New York Alliance (PNYA) is expanding its popular weekly video conference series Post Break, which has been providing New York’s post-production industry with critical information and a sense of community during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Launched in April, the series hosts industry experts, union and trade organization leaders, government officials and others for in-depth discussions on topics including remote collaboration, tax policies, new technologies, landmark projects and more.

Free and open to all, the series is helping pros and newcomers stay in touch and keep up to date with industry developments at a time when physical meetings are difficult or impossible.


Titled VFX Solutions to COVID Problems (Part I), the last installment of PNYA Post Break was July 9 at 4:00 p.m. EST. Moderated by Visual Effects Society, New York, secretary Leah Orsini, the session featured veteran visual effects supervisors and producers discussed the expanding role of visual effects in a post-COVID world. The discussion will continue with a second panel, focusing on new tools and technologies, slated for July 16. Past sessions are archived on the PNYA website.

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.
