Standardized and custom modules to
meet your goals
The 15 Minutes of Fame workshop consists of a number of modules. We
tailor each workshop to help you achieve your goals. Depending on whether
you are seeking development in the area of team building, creativity,
communication, leadership... we will customize our approach.
& Story 101
In the big group, your teams will face their first challenge - come
up with story ideas and pitch them. Wait till your people come up against
our panel of producers who hold the power to fund their movie. This
module is a 2-3 hour roundtable team building session incorporating
creativity games and filmmaking principles designed to loosen the imagination
and get the creative juices flowing in a light-hearted yet competitive
way. This is a great way to warmup for Module 2.

Minutes of Fame - Film
101, Silent Movie and the Feature Film
The core of our workshop. These exercises can be spread over two days
or condensed into one 4-6 hour period. Participants roll up their sleeves
and make their own film by taking one of the various roles of directing,
cinematography and acting. Each small group is supervised by film industry
professionals. The story ideas are turned into moving pictures using
state-of-the-art cameras, wardrobe, props - and your team's imagination.
Clear decision making, leadership skills and time management are all
required for this challenging workshop - each team must get their ideas
and concepts on film, in the can, on-time and within budget. The intense
pressure of a film shoot has been known to make experienced directors
cry. Now it will be your team's chance to grab their 15 Minutes of Fame.
Celebration and Screening
The 15 Minutes of Fame Screening and Awards celebration. Just like Cannes
or Sundance! This module works very well when you combine it with a
dinner during your retreat or conference. We'll project all your films
onto the silver screen and the judges will make their selections for
Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director and of course, the Best Picture.
Many of our clients have even made the evening a tux and dinner gown
event! Guntis is famous for his introductions to the films - his dry
Australian wit has reduced many a director to tears - of laughter! This
light-hearted, fun-filled event will give you a taste of the magic and
glamour of the film industry.
Debrief Module.... Strategy and Team Building
After the intensity of the filmmaking session, take an afternoon to
discuss the experience in the context of team building, communication
and creativity. Have a conversation to help transfer the learning back
to your workplace. Powerful assessment tools are used here to help your
people take their 15 minutes of fame back home! Visit our Modules

debrief sessions for you.
