Hi all Rags Revival enthusiasts,

As Promised we are hosting our second Rags Revival Swishing Event on Friday 2nd May but, this time we will be just down the road at The Globe Pub. We have our own space again downstairs (and our own bar horahhh.) The room is slightly bigger with quirky chesterfield chairs, rustic tables and fairy lights - I have attached some pictures for you to gander at! We loved the intimacy of the last event and are conscious that we want to keep that, so fear not! It is still very central at 77-78 Middle Street, Brighton, BN1 1AL. £5 Entry, Max of 10 items!

The time of the event has slightly changed to 5pm - 9pm so we will be getting our swish on slightly earlier. Most of you had finished and wrapped up by 9pm so this shouldn't be a problem. There is an event called Transmission in the same room at 10pm which is some great music (new and old) and has some fantastic drink deals on, so feel free to have a dance after your swish!

Hopefully we will see your beautiful faces on the 2nd of May and bring all your friends! The more people there the more choice for everyone.Remember if you have any tokens left over from the last event ...bring them!!

We will have extra mirrors this time and same rules apply - if you need a refresher they are now on our website http://swishing.wix.com/rags-revival#!up-coming-events/c15f0

Bite Size Movies presents The return of the ZOMBIE FILM MAKING COURSE FOR ADULTS

SHOOT THE DEAD!!!!!

Due to the popularity of the first zombie course we are repeating the same two day course in May with a further three day course for later in the year.

If you've ever wanted to make or be in your own zombie movie then this course from Bite Size Movies may be something you can get your teeth into.

In two days in a collaborative process, we will be improvising, scripting, story boarding and creating our own short zombie film from scratch.

Depending on the script produced we will be filming the movie using a combination of location and green screen techniques.

We will also have a professional visual make up artist for all the necessary zombie make up and gore effects. A professional acting coach and a small production crew will also be helping to bring the film alive. Zombie extras will be provided on the filming day as well if necessary.

You don't need any film or acting experience as all camera training and acting coaching will be done on the first day. All film equipment is supplied as well as a liberal spread of props.

The course would be ideal for work or family outings! Or a present for a die hard horror film fan!

THE COURSE INCLUDES:
* A brief history of Zombie films with a interactive multi-media talk.
* An afternoon with a professional acting coach
* Scripting & story boarding the short film
* Zombie make up tests and full make up with a professional make up artist
* Special visual effects
* Green screen (if necessary)
* Location filming (scouted by the team)
* All film equipment supplied
* Props (where necessary)
* Zombie extras on standby for larger scenes (if necessary)
* A DVD of the finished film
* Lots of blood & guts

We can only take a maximum of twelve people for the course so do book early to avoid disappointment.

Please note: Because of the short amount of time we have Bite Size Movies will be editing the finished footage.

The film from the first course will be posted on this site as soon as it's completed. Watch this space!


" It was an excellent couple of days and the balance was just right - friendly but also professional and attendees learnt a lot. Really enjoyed the whole process! Many thanks!" - A participant from the first zombie course

A tour of all that's peculiar to Brighton.
What connects Abba and the Portuguese Revolution? Mount Everest and a supermarket in Hove? A stained wall and the genesis of a worldwide retail brand? What's the story behind a same-sex wedding in 1923...Britain's 'most useless' monarch...a certain Parisian radio station? And why is my charming Regency property damp and crumbling? Only in Brighton...

Only in Brighton is a vivid 80-minute guided walk. It is a curiously fact-filled and tongue-in-cheek look at the landmarks, past and present, that make Brighton a city like no other. For the visitor, it is an insider's introduction; for the hardened Brightonian, a revelation and celebration. This personal tribute cuts to the heart of a unique city in all its glory, shame and muesli.
