Cinema Makeup School Taps Joel Harlow for Holiday SFX Seminar


Cinema Makeup School, the beauty and special effects makeup training institutions, is partnering with Oscar- and Emmy-winning makeup artist Joel Harlow for a special makeup seminar at 2 p.m. Dec. 2 the CMS campus in Los Angeles.

Harlow’s work is best known from his blockbuster collaborations with actor Johnny Depp, which include Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and the upcoming The Lone Ranger. He won an Oscar in 2010 for his work on Star Trek and has five Emmy nominations and two wins for television projects.

During the seminar, part of Cinema Makeup School’s Signature Series, Harlow will demonstrate a cutting-edge silicone corpse makeup application live in class and conduct a Q&A about the application and his work.

“I personally am very excited for our holiday seminar,” said Michael Spatola, CMS’s chief academic officer. “Having a makeup artist of this caliber doing our program…is a great way to reinforce the wonderful knowledge our students have received.”

“The ability to see, up close and personal, an artisan of Joel’s level at work can only improve any makeup artist’s skill set,” director of admissions Lee Joyner said.

The seminar is open to the public and reception with free food, drink and live music will follow. Those interested in attending the event should RSVP to the school by Nov. 16. Guests can RSVP by emailing [email protected] or by calling the school at (213) 368-1234.

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.
