If you are looking for the excitement and creativity of a film-making activity but you want to customize the content of the experience, then our Commercial Making event is perfect for your group! Depending on your objectives, the commercials can contain certain product offerings or selling points, or they can even give your staff the opportunity to tell you why your company stands out against your competition!
Like our Movie-Making event, the entire group will first experience “Film 101”, where they will learn how to use the actual cameras and equipment. Each team will then be taken to their specific shooting location, to write, shoot, and star in their own commercials! Some of them will be writers, some will be directors, some will be crew members (camera operator, boom operator, sound engineer, slate board operator, costumer, prop person, etc.), and at least half of the group must also be the ACTORS! In order to add another layer to the event, we also assign each team a commercial “style” that their ad must embody (ex: Used Car, Home Shopping Network, Movie Preview, etc.).
Depending on the number of teams involved, the fully-edited commercials will be screened either later that day or the following day for your entire group. We can provide an MC to introduce the videos. We can also provide “Celebrity Judges” to provide off-the-cuff remarks, along with one or two company executives to form the judging panel. After all the commercials have been viewed they will give out awards for a variety of creative categories!
