NEP Metropolis Studio Qualifies for New York State Tax Credit


NEP announced that its Manhattan-based Metropolis Studio has qualified for the New York State tax credit for film and television productions, and that the studio is now listed by the Mayor’s Office of Film, Theatre, & Broadcasting as a Level 2 Qualified Film Production Facility (QPF). Metropolis is the ninth NEP studio in Manhattan to receive this designation, meaning that eligible clients utilizing any of NEP’s Manhattan-based studios can now receive a tax credit.

“We are thrilled that all of our New York studios now qualify for the state’s tax credit for film and television,” said Barry Katz, senior vice president and general manager of NEP Studios. “NEP Metropolis, the newest studio to qualify, is a large and versatile space, offering great amenities, on-site technical and facilities support and state-of-the-art equipment. It is the perfect space for film shoots, prime-time television serials, game shows and more.”

With more than 6,000 square feet, NEP Metropolis Studio offers 12,000 amps of power, a full HD control room, a full-service support space with dressing rooms and green rooms, and 3,000 additional square feet of office space.

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.
