At this teambuilding event, the participants become real Hollywood stars! Here the film crews make their very own blockbuster and receive exciting insights into the film business. At the Movie Workshop creative and funny plots will be discussed and further developed – so that in the end of the Oscar night no eye remains dry.
The movie workshop begins with an informative and funny introduction to the film business. Participants learn about what kind of jobs are available in a film crew, which kind of camera work should be applied for a certain effect and how to correctly utilize lightning. There are also fascinating tips on how to use creative techniques to quickly come to a memorable storyline and how to write it down.
Each film team is supervised by a film-guide throughout the entire movie workshop. The guide is available for questions and keeps an eye on the remaining time besides organizational functions, so each team will have a result. After the distribution of the equipment, the tasks will be divided within the teams. For this purpose, they can find job descriptions in the manual. With this aid, the areas of responsibility and interfaces are clearly defined and the film crew can start efficiently.
Before the actual shooting of the film, the script and storyboard are created. There are no limits set to the imagination of the film crews. Whether they shoot a remake of a film classic or create a completely new plot in the genres of action, comedy or drama, the participants have a freedom of choice. Additionally, we provide them with historical household goods like a coal iron or an old wash board in order to give them some inspiration. As a result, the funniest commercials have been developed.
During the shooting with an HD camera, the teams have a wide selection of costumes, make-up and props available. Consequently, all creative ideas can be realized. In the end, the cutters finalize the movie including the front credits. The effects of the 20th Century Fox Cinema may not be missed. The jury evaluates the movies subsequently and finds an awarding category for the Oscar night that follows the Movie Workshop. Examples for these categories are the award for the best actor performance, the rainbow award or the award for the most horrifying moment.
In the evening, the guests will walk over the red carpet with flashlights, before they sit down at the festive covered dinner tables. Between the individual curses, the movies will be shown to the crowd after a laudation. Each film crew will be awarded with a certain category and honored with an Oscar statue.
Look forward to the final movies! You will be surprised which talents are hidden in your employees!
