It's incredible to learn so much information about film scoring in such a short period of time: from the film concepts to outlining music, from initial ideas to the completed music, and from personal work to diverse collaborations.

I've learned so many things throughout this workshop in Thessaloniki.
Not only about music, also the film industry and how communication affects their works. 
I believe those are not something I can learn from books or the internet so I'm very happy to learn about them in person.

Thank you so much for organizing such a great workshop.

The practical part of composing music to one of the provided short films pushed me to learn skills that otherwise I would not pay much attention to.

The workshop took place online but all the professors made me feel like there was no distance at all.

A special mention to Mihali and the wonderful musicians whose passion and dedication really amazed me during the recording session. All I can say is thank you for making me a better composer.
