Brian Kite, Interim Dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT), one of the most prominent academic institutions for entertainment and performing arts education, and Professor Deborah Nadoolman Landis, Ph.D., founding director of the UCLA TFT David C. Copley Center for Costume Design, have announced the 10th annual Sketch to Screen Costume Design Panel, in partnership with Swarovski.

Sketch to Screen is a celebration of costume design and includes all six costume designers nominated for Academy Awards in 2020. The event will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 at UCLA’s TFT Freud Playhouse. The panel discussion will begin at 2:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.

The panelists include Academy Award nominees Mark Bridges (Joker), Jacqueline Durran (Little Women), Christopher Peterson (The Irishman), Arianne Phillips (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Sandy Powell (The Irishman) and Mayes Rubeo (Jojo Rabbit).

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.
