The Benefits of Movie Making Activities for Corporate Team Building
Unlike regular team-building exercises such as tower building or sales pitch development, our movie-making also helps you to develop real-world technology skills. Better still, it’s very entertaining. You can now give yourself and your employees the creativity and fun you all deserve.
The Power of Teamwork by Concept, Creation, and Editing
Movie making workshops take place in three stages: planning, shooting, and editing. Each stage will help you and your employees increase their creativity, build a bond, explore new technological skills, and create a supportive and effective editing rapport. Which may make your future projects a cinch! But before we set you loose, our experts will impart some lighting, scripting, and shooting expertise – to give your teams an idea of how, and where, to begin.
Planning – Brainstorming and Design
The event starts by asking teams to get together and brainstorm ideas for their very own movie. Teams will begin brainstorming ideas based around, scripting plans, and character design. All of this will culminate into a storyboard which becomes the foundation for the movie. Participants are then given the option to rehearse, before deciding and choosing their shooting location. During this process, we encourage character development through role-play with constructive critique.
Making a Movie Script – Teamwork
Before writing the script you need to plan the scenes. How many and how long will each scene be – which makes up the overall movie. You can’t shoot a movie without a film script. After all, what are your characters going to do and what are they going to say. This is where you combine your created scenes with the dialogue.
Start with an outline and introduce your characters, not forgetting the tone of your story. Dialogue should always be focused around the story and be distinctive to each character. Add sequences away from the main subject and think about location. This could also influence a given scene, creating more attention to your characters.
Shooting Your First Team Movie on an iPad
This shooting is the most fun part of the event! As teams venture outdoors to shoot their short film, they will have access to our wardrobe of props, our local knowledge of possible shooting locations, and filming equipment to make sure that the results are top quality.
We encourage strong character design and roleplaying as a part of barrier breakdown and team bonding. You and your colleagues are guaranteed to have fun together within no time at all. Once all scenes have been shot all the teams return to the meeting room to begin editing.
The Importance of Film Props
We provide plenty of props but what purpose do they serve! Props are a fundamental piece of film and can make a scene feel more authentic. They are not there just for decoration as they encourage actors/actresses to play their role more convincingly which enhances the performance of each character, and makes them look more conceivable.
Shooting a Film Scene
As this is a team-building event you only get one iPad. Teams get to focus on one scene at a time and they need to think about camera angles and placement. We demonstrate how to find an angle that fits the mood or tone of the scene. Always check the whole scene for unwanted debris in the background and shoot the scenes in order, making the process of editing easier and faster.
Movie Making team Building on iPads – Editing
To get the very best results, we provide Apple iPads for shooting and software for editing. We will explain how the software works and provide advice and guidance whenever needed. Using iMovie couldn’t be easier. Simply import your film clips, choose your preferred scenes, add background music, titles, some transitions and you’re ready for the big screen. That’s it!
Oscar Awards Ceremony
A miniature awards ceremony is given Oscar style, to reward and recognise the most creative, interesting, and talented members of the team. These awards go to the best actor/actress, best director, and best film. Groups can take away their movies on a USB stick for later enjoyment! We strongly recommend against any uploads to YouTube. We respect and take your privacy seriously.
