Chris Heuer from Freefall FX took home the coveted prizes from the second tutorial contest last summer with his tutorial on mocha and his pioneering 2D - 3D conversion work he completed on the classic horror film, Nosferatu.  Chris had this to say about his experience:

"During testing, I was shocked to see mocha track through this old footage.  The original footage jumped almost every frame, had tons of noise, dirt and damage, AND had random exposure changes.  mocha tracked it flawlessly, just like it was pristine digital footage.  I could not have done this film without mocha... it would have taken years instead of months.  When I learned of Imagineer’s tutorial contest, I thought this would be a wonderful opportunity to show my colleagues in the industry how mocha can tackle seemingly insurmountable workflow challenges."

Heuer continued, "Winning the contest was a huge surprise.  I wanted to do a roto tutorial that went a bit more in depth than others I'd watched.  Hopefully this will help others get a firm grasp on this amazing software!"
