Human behaviour and communication can be very complex and can easily be misread. This course helps students understand their own and others' motivation.

Transactional Analysis is a model for understanding relationships, communication and human behaviour. Created by Eric Berne in the 1950s (author of the best-selling book Games People Play), TA is now widely used in education, psychotherapy, management and many other areas.

This course will introduce some of the main concepts of TA including: life script, psychological games, ego states and transactions. We will look at how to relate these concepts to others and ourselves and identify alternative options for our behaviour and communication.

Participants will be invited to use the theory presented to reflect on their own process. There will be a combination of teaching, discussion, practical excercise and time for reflection.

This course is a great starting point for those considering a career in counselling and psychotherapy.

Course tutors: Leilani Mitchell

Recognition: On completion students will be awarded an internationally recognised certificate by the UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis formerly the ITA)

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 September .

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

I loved being back in a workshop environment and really enjoyed the text and devising process. I wanted to regain confidence as I haven't acted for a few years and it helped me achieve this.
L James

All the teachers were great. I really liked how each session seemed to build on the last. I really felt that at the end of the workshop that I had improved and my attitude to acting developed.
K Ford

Everything was superb
A Perera

I particularly enjoyed the movement classes, which really surprised me.
A Harvey

Everything! I know that is a bit dull, but I did adore it and had the best two weeks.
C Haven

The best thing about the workshop was the tutors and the variety of subjects covered, it took you out of your comfort zone and enabled you to explore more, test yourself and discover something new.
J Clayton

An incredible feeling of fun - reminded me of the fun I used to have when acting at school, whilst at the same time bringing forth something I've missed for so long. It felt fantastic doing text work in week two. It felt like I had come home.
