LR-A Single Life

The New Yorker added the Oscar-nominated animated short film A Single Life to its “Screening Room” series earlier this week. The film tells the story of a young woman who receives a mysterious package that contains a vinyl record. She soon realizes that she can go forward or backward in time by simply adjusting the position of the needle as the record plays on her stereo.

The film was created by the Dutch design studio Job, Joris & MariekeJob Roggeveen, Joris Oprins and Marieke Blaauw – which does animation, illustration, character design and music.

The New Yorker has an interesting profile of the filmmakers 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.
