We had such a awesome time! It was definitely a highlight of our whole Wellington trip because it was a new fun experience to be doing something, rather than sitting back and just watching what other people created. Definitely a thumbs up!
I have never ever put different music in a part of a movie before. I only listen to music but I have never changed it to another piece of music before, this is one of the most: thrilling, cool, movitastic things I have ever done and it looks like this is just going to be the cooliest camp ever, one of the reasons is because of this.
To experience this is not just a pleasure, it is a privilege. I had so much fun making video games because I have played many, but made none until today, thank you so much!
My visit to Capital E was really great. I have many friends who produce music on their computers but I’ve never tried to do so myself. After this session however, I am definitely going to download Sony’s Acid when I get home. Overall great experience and a great teacher.
Really really enjoyed my trip here it was awesome!!!!! I loved it because there was no restrictions we got to put whatever we wanted or what felt right, it was easy to learn and i would definitely want to come back here again. Thanks Capital E!!!
