EuroCALL 2014 was, as usual, a GREAT experience!
The conference started with a day of workshops and our MACHINIMA videos one was amongst those :) The experience was challenging (you know ... technology ;) ) but I'm delighted to report that WE WON over the computer lab! :)
A HUGE THANK you to ALINA HORLESCU for her really interesting and informative workshop and thanks to CHRISTEL SCHNEIDER who helped out and kept a great record of all our work.
