wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships.
Value of the Film Experience
The process Hollywood
goes through when it puts together a film is the most intense example
of teamwork under pressure.
The film crew is poised. Talent is ready. The set is quiet. The director
waits for the daylight to change. And then, action! The clock is ticking
and every minute means millions of dollars. Everyone works with one
goal: to help tell the story.
exercise involves more teamwork than any other team building exercise
I've ever done. It showed me how important listening and reaching
consensus is for a team. Also, how we can learn together and make
a finished product with little experience just by relying on each
other. I love the right brain approach.

Everyone loves a good story. They remind us we're human. We
get to explore alll possibilities and to live out our dreams, and, yes,
nightmares. Today's medium of telling stories is film. There are hundreds
of movies made every year. And the technology is making it easier, but
it still comes down to story. What's the value of stories in the corporate
skills for a new workplace
Flexing the right brain muscles to unleash creativity through the 15
Minutes of Fame workshop
Daniel Pink continues: "The sorts of abilities that now matter
most are fundamentally human attributes. After all, back on the savannah,
our caveperson ancestors weren't plugging numbers into spreadsheets
or debugging code. But they were telling stories, demonstrating empathy,
and designing innovations. These abilities have always been part of
what it means to be human. It's just that after a few generations in
the Information Age, many of our high concept, high touch muscles have
atrophied. The challenge is to work them back into shape." *
The 15 Minutes of Fame workshop is unique in the world today
What other workshop gives you the opportunity to write a script,
direct, act, operate a camera and produce a film? All while ticking
the corporate development boxes like leadership, team building and creative
thinking? No other workshop gives your associates a real filmmaking
experience like this.
Our 15 MoF filmmakers (all film industry veterans) will guide your group
from concept to script to shoot to screen. Along the way, your team
will need to be creative, communicate and collaborate under pressure.
Expressing a theme and concepts in a short film is challenging. It will
stretch the old brain wiring and clear out your group's communication
pathways. It all pays off when your group wins the Best Picture Award
at the gala Oscar-style screening of all the films. Not only will your
team have a night to remember, theyll have their 15 Minutes of
Fame movie to take home as a memory on DVD.
We were taken out of our normal dimension and saw things from
another view which can be applied to many parts of the business
