Thanks for running this workshop Carleyy! I had issues getting picture and it was skippy and went into a loop for a bit, but with a few reloads got it to work. On a whole, it was a very cool experience. Thanks again!

No, there were plenty of people commenting and asking questions. People are just more likely to come back here and comment when they couldn't get it to work.

I'm sure it did. You didn't have to see the video to enter. It was based on following the two twitter feeds and tweeting the workshop link.

just going from the above instructions, a login event is required. If just following was indeed all that was required, then I have no problem. I soul like some official input on this though.

Secondly, searching for "Silhouettes" in twitter brings up few Silhouettes pages. Which one to follow ? Please provide a link
