SPOTLIGHT: The Molecule
Smallest Details Count

Time is of the essence for bi-coastal vfx and motion graphics studio The Molecule. The team, which constantly juggles feature films and episodics, turns to mocha Pro for all their tracking needs.

Two of The Molecule’s recent projects, Showtime’s award-winning The Affair and the feature film The Giver starring Meryl Streep, used mocha Pro to track the tiniest of details.

“Hair moves all at once in different sections in different ways. mocha was essential to tracking many tiny portions of hair in an efficient and precise way.
Vicky Penzes, Compositing Supervisor, The Molecule

Artist Profile:
Roni Rodrigues, BlueBolt

Meet Roni Rodrigues, compositor for the London-based vfx facility BlueBolt. Rodrigues most recently worked extensively with mocha Pro on the latest visual effects heavy sci-fi flick from the Wachowski siblings, Jupiter Ascending.

“We used mocha‘s planar tracker to track facial features, adding aging marks, crows feet around eyes and age lines around mouths, while always keeping the natural distortion of the stretching skin when they were speaking. The results were great.” – Roni Rodrigues, Compositor, BlueBolt

Product Review:
Hands-on with mocha Pro, Focus Magazine

Testing Mocha Pro 4.0 1

In its February issue, Focus Magazine writer Ian Sandall reviewed both mocha Pro and mocha Plus, providing a run-down of each product.

“From now on I will only be using mocha for tracking. In the past I used AE which did a good job, but before I even started projects I would advise producers how things should be shot in order to get a good track when in post. There is no need for me to do that anymore as mocha will cope with anything!”
– Matt Thompson, editor
