    Still not sure? Here’s what one recent participant had to say;

    “Thank you Mile 91 for the recent smartphone filming course – it was honestly the most useful and fun workshop I’ve ever been to. I really enjoyed putting what we learnt in the morning in to practice, and felt a huge sense of achievement showing the short video I managed to film and edit by the end of the day. We all left feeling so excited and motivated to make some great videos for Marie Curie!”
