Tired of wading through freezing streams in Wales trying to make rafts
out of a couple of old oil drums and a few planks of wood?
Fed up with building towers and bridges with varying types of dried pasta?
Or being splattered sore with multicoloured paintballs?
Then Make The Movie!

A fantastic piece of training. Learning really should be fun – Make The Movie was exactly that. Highly recommend!
