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!!!

      Awesome to hear you enjoyed your time with us Riley! It was a real pleasure hosting you all. Can really be quite a thrilling experience working under the pressure of a live shoot, huh? I totally agree that it all went to plan too! 🙂

    i loved doing this and vision mixer was very cool because it was easy to do and i could choose any camera

    • Kit

      Right? How cool is all our gear?! Vision mixing in particular puts you right in the driver’s seat of the show I reckon, and it’s great to hear you got a kick out of that too. 🙂

    I thought it was really fun and it was easy to follow instructions. I thought that being the camera operator was very cool.

    I loved doing the news report and getting to use the gear.

    The Wahine experience was great the jobs were soooo fun and I really enjoyed being the director. The teacher was friendly and willing to help (sorry I cant remember the name). The instruction were easy to follow and I shocked at how fun it was. Thank you.
