Everything on the schedule was appropriately constructed to suit unexperienced and experienced composers. I had such a good time at the workshop and for me personally was a joy to create and deliver the music for the film.
More than my expectation. It was such a great time to join this workshop. Truly, I learned so many things. Especially information about preparing the music score for recording. It was so helpful to see how Mihali edit the score, and what we have to consider for smooth recording.
I had an awesome time at this year's workshop, I learned a lot and thought the whole experience was definitely worthwhile.
