This film making team building activity is an excellent way to get teams working together creatively to produce a tangible outcome within only a few hours.

The team filming activity combines the need for the team to think and work creatively within a short period of time. Using iMovies on iPads supplied by Fresh Tracks, the teams’ strengths and hidden talents are highlighted when the finished films/outlines are shown at the end of the session.

Storyboards encourage visual thinking and planning allowing participants to brainstorm together, thereby fostering more ideas requiring teams to seek consensus within the group. Teams can be left to assign roles themselves or defined tasks can be allocated. These include writer, director, actors, costume & props, location research, special effects or stunts co-coordinators.These roles can reinforce learning around roles people take in teams back at work and the ways in which team members interact.

Following an open discussion on what makes an effective film, delegates are given some pointers on how to make their film distinctive. Within a set time they must then produce either a storyboard – with a choice of using Polaroids and pens, digital cameras and laptops – or produce a film with the assistance of trained cameramen. This session can be tailored to suit the team’s requirements or budget.

The theme can be selected to support you business objectives. In recent years, our clients have used this exercise:

  • To think about and develop culture by creating a recruitment film of their organisation in the future
  • To prepare for a new product launch by competing to make the best TV commercial for the new brand
  • To boost creative thinking by writing and making a sequel to a well known movie
  • To better understand the wider organisation by producing a news format programme.
