Hi guys,

Mary here again. We are all excited to have had the opportunity to get out there and meet some of you wonderful users! Thank you for continuing to support our wonderful planar tracker, Mocha, and for creating beautiful work. We always love to hear from you.


Ross Shain, CMO, at Collider Conference NYC

I hope you were able to come see Ross Shain and Darrell Lee at the Collider event this past week! It was three days, 40 speakers and panelists, a Job Fair, Master Classes, and much more. It was a busy event and we think it was a great time. Ross and Darrell really enjoyed meeting our users and we hope to see you at Siggraph!

The Manhattan Edit Workshop!

Did you see Ross Shain, Jeff Wozniak, Chris Healer, and Yuval Levy at the Manhattan Edit Workshop? It was a full day event hosted by Manhattan Edit Workshop.

Featuring panels and networking party. Ross Shain, Imagineer Systems CMO, moderated a Visual Effects Panel with industry experts from Gravity World and The Molecule.


I also hope you made it out to the VFX Town Hall, it was a historic live event and help broaden and amplify the ongoing conversation surrounding the VFX crisis. If you didn’t catch it in person, we hope you caught it streaming. We proudly support VFX artists all over the world and want to see the business improve for everyone, from individual workers to studios and production houses. It’s up to both artists and studios to improve our industry.

Thanks Mexico City!

The Great Gatsby!

The creative folks at Iloura used Mocha on an incredible visual spectacle, The Great Gatsby!

Check out Iloura’s work on the Valley of Ashes

“In director Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby, one of the more dramatic locations is the Valley of Ashes, a bleak, depressing rubbish dump that the characters pass through on their way between Manhattan and Long Island. Nearly everything there was created by Iloura, an Australian VFX company. Iloura Visual Effects Supervisor Julian Dimsey and Compositor Matt Omond speak with Creative COW about the work they did to create the Valley of Ashes.”-Via Creative Cow.
