Ben Heusner of Curious Turtle ( took home the coveted prizes from the first tutorial contest last summer and had this to say about his experience:

"Winning the contest last year was fantastic on a number of levels.  Obviously the prize was great, and I've been able to utilize the prize software on a number of projects this past year.  More importantly though, creating the tutorials inspired me to think about mocha in different ways.  Explaining features in a concise way ensures you think about your workflow, and question whether you're working efficiently.  Since the contest, I have produced two full video training series through Curious Turtle, Rock Steady : Successful Motion Tracking in Mocha & After Effects and Tracked : The Art of Motion Tracking in Mocha for Final Cut.  It's also been a great way to cultivate personal relationships with the good folks at Imagineer Systems and get the occasional beer in the pub from people who got help from the videos."
