Spend 10 days in Toulouse with classmates and teachers to be part of an intensive stop-motion animation workshop was an amazing experience. On top of putting into practice the notions previously studied, we learned how to apply them to more complex, greater scale projects. The partners abroad allowed us to live an interesting and enriching experience, thanks to their ideas and mentorship.
