LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION!
Objective: Teams design and produce a TV commercial
At one time or another, each of us has had what seems like a killer idea for a TV commercial. Now your group can actually dream up and produce ads of their very own. Choose a theme that reflects your own company focus, or simply let people go wild with creativity. Working together, small teams come up with concepts, then write, shoot and edit their ideas into 30- and 60-second masterpieces. With so many jobs to do, everyone will find a way to contribute. Select a panel of judges for the big “awards show,” screen the commercials for the entire group, and see just how contagious laughter can be. This low-budget team building activity is a wonderful addition to any conference, training session or team day.
