    Freesound verwende ich auch. :D

    Wisst ihr nicht, in welcher Framerate ihr filmen sollt?

    Ich soll übrigens die neuen Studenten im Schneiden unterrichten. Das wird lustig …

    • Es war am Anfang etwas unklar, aber am Ende wurden es 25.
      Vielleicht bloggst du ja über deinen Unterricht, oder veröffentlichst posts über die verschiedenen Stunden. Fänd ich spannend!
