  1. Hi there,
    Just on your website and really enjoyed watching the make a movie videos.
    I’m the Manager of the Talk About Youth project, here in Pearse street and am currently looking for some similar activity to run for our new Youth Employability project for 17 to 25 year olds. Loved the imagination, fun and creativity of the movie making. Would love to chat with you and explore some ideas. Be great to hear from you soon.
    All the best,
