Light, Action and Teamwork are just some of the buzzwords for Team Building Asia’s Hollywood Challenge, which is making a heady premiere throughout the region.
Recently held for printing professionals, Océ in Singapore, teams got their chance to star in their own Hollywood Production while incorporating company themes and the key message of “Reaching Our Potential” to deliver their blockbuster. There’s even enough time to squeeze in an Oscar’s Ceremony in a range of categories to ensure teams get the recognition they deserve.
Hollywood Challenge engages the same process used by many of today’s successful directors in the film industry to produce a five minutes company themed feature. Clear directions are given in Storyboard Planning, Script Writing and “On Location” Filming Techniques to ensure detailed planning and execution are carried out before the scheduled Film Premiere.
Teams divide up roles of Director, Cameraman, Continuity and a team of Actors. Each is given valuable tips and strategies for the behind the scenes work required for their final production. The Costume Department takes care of selected attire and props to showcase a range of popular genres including Kung Fu, Western, Sci-Fi, Horror, Action/Adventure, Superhero and Epic. Most recent screenings have witnessed spoof versions of Charlie’s Angels, James Bond and Star Wars.
After the production, all teams return to a theatre style set up and get the chance to introduce their feature presentation in front of an enthusiastic audience. Judges award points for categories such as Best Film and Best Actor/Actress encouraging the participants to pitch their acceptance speech.
Once movies have been given their premiere, they are produced onto Windows Media Format for souvenir home viewing or more likely to appear as a surprise viewing at the next office party.
“Hollywood Challenge is an excellent team building activity which challenged all our delegates to collaborate effectively and we were very impressed with the results.”Maggie Lim, Communications Manager, Océ Marketing
