On January 23rd, Pitch a new funding platform will launch helping filmmakers all over the U.S. come one step closer in starting, developing or finishing their film. Pitch is a multimedia funding and business plan platform. Pitch provides a place for filmmakers to meet their audience. A place where the up and rising filmmakers or directors or producers have the opportunity to put their story, talents and vision out there to seek interested support. Supporters can contribute financially and/or provide critiques as the filmmakers take the next steps towards completing their first creation.
Funding your film normally doesn’t happen by someone donating ten dollars and hoping many people follow the trend to increase your cash pot. In this day in age, the use of technology has helped people achieve their business goals far more expected then imagined. Pitch hopes to build their audience with not only amateur filmmakers or moviegoers, but also professionals who can have a place to go to support and discover new talent and films.
The format of the platform allows the users to accept critiques and make improvements as they move from one level to the next. The audience is very pivotal for filmmakers to learn and broaden their vision further. The audience has a strong role in making the filmmaker a stronger artist in rewriting, re-shooting or restructuring their current film and then moving them forward to their next creation. The process is as much as the adventure as the end result.
Pitch is now accepting project submissions as they move out of beta mode. Thirty projects will be selected at a time, while others go on a wait list until a slot becomes available. The rules and regulations can also be described a bit of a challenging game as time is limited to meet your funding goals to advance to the next level. Pitch is sure to provide a lot of opportunity for new filmmakers in the coming.
Filmmakers always inspire to get their film off the ground and greenlit, but funding can sometimes get in the way.

iPi Soft, LLC, http://www.ipisoft.com, developer of the iPi Soft Desktop Motion Capture? line of markerless motion capture technology, has announced the breakthrough support for two Kinect sensors. The new dual-Kinect configuration marks the first time in history that users can have two of the popular game devices working at the same time on the same PC to capture complex human motions, including 360-degrees turns ? a huge boon to filmmakers, CG animators, broadcast motion graphics designers, videogame developers and prosumers in entertainment, military, medical and other vertical markets.
Click here to view the iPi Soft dual-Kinect motion capture demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msRtIZX529Q&feature=youtu.be
Michael Nikonov, iPi Soft?s Founder and Chief Technology Architect, explains that previous versions of the iPi Soft Mocap software included support for a single Kinect device or multiple PlayStation Eye cameras only. The new upgrade makes it possible to use two Kinect sensors giving digital storytellers ? especially game developers who are challenged to create realistic human characters ? the power of a multi-camera system, and eliminating the need for expensive marker suits and green-screen stage shoots.
?The new dual-Kinect feature is an important upgrade that delivers on iPi Soft?s commitment to give users the most accurate, easy-to-use and affordable motion capture tools to create believable humanoid motion characters,? Nikonov says. ?The software combines depth information from two Kinect sensors simultaneously for amazing coverage and accuracy. The 360-degrees turns provide a true workflow advantage.?
Thus far the upgrade has been met with overwhelmingly positive feedback from beta testers in the animation community. Artists Greenlaw and Alisa Loren Klein of Little Green Dog (littlegreendog.com) used the new dual-Kinect setup for their short film ?Happy Box? (http://youtu.be/gy3hSz7_zb8).
?Incredibly, we were able to record the motions of three characters for seventeen shots in just a couple of hours, and that included setup time and rehearsals,? noted Greenlaw. ?The results are far superior to the data we were getting using a single Kinect sensor. We plan on using iPi Desktop Motion Capture and Kinect for many more films.?
For Nikonov, this latest innovation represents the company?s mission toward bringing markerless motion capture beyond the hands of creative professionals and prosumers, and to a level of ubiquity among general consumers.
?I believe in the future people will get used to easily creating motion capture, the same way consumers got used to digital video cameras,? Nikonov notes. ?We will be using the same devices for playing video games and as well as creating content for them. I would compare older mocap solutions to antiquated mainframe computers.?
Pricing and Availability:
Support for two Kinect sensors is included in both the Basic and Standard editions of iPi Desktop Motion Capture software and comes at no additional cost. Users who purchased Basic or Standard editions of the software can download a free update from iPi Soft?s website. For the remainder of December, iPi Soft is offering a 30% pricing discount on its full line of scalable markerless motion capture products.

Legend has it that in ancient times, Buddha asked all the animals to meet him on Chinese New Year. Twelve came, and Buddha named a year after each one. He announced that the people born in each animal’s year would have some of that animal’s personality. Those born in dragon years are innovative, brave, and passionate. Salvador Dali, John Lennon, and Mary-Louise Parker were all born in the year of the dragon.
At Chinese New Year celebrations, people wear red clothing, decorate with poems on red paper, and give children “lucky money” in red envelopes. Red symbolizes fire, which according to legend can drive away bad luck.
For more information, contact the Chamber at 713-782-7222, http://www.asianchamber-hou.org or casino(at)asianchamber-hou(dot)org.
