At City Academy, we pride ourselves on our unique approach to team building. We encourage businesses to seek out innovative opportunities that allow for a highly creative and immersive team building experience, permitting team members to show off their skills while learning.
What is Film in a Day?
Our 'Film in a Day' team building experience puts your employees at the heart of the creation process where they'll create a story and, afterwards, film the story in a single day. Participants will manage and deliver the project from start to finish: from storyboard to screen, planning, and performance, to location and lighting – editing their piece under the guidance of a professional film-maker and culminating in a screening of the film to see how their hard work and team effort has paid off.
The experience aims to build confidence and boost team morale, allowing participants to share the experience of exploring new roles including acting, writing, filming and editing. The team are required to support one another and will leave the workshop with a tangible product of their own – a unique film. When you take on our 'Film in a Day' team challenge, you only need to bring yourselves as City Academy will provide all the ingredients including professional digital cameras, sound and lighting equipment, an experienced filmmaker and tutor, and a flexible studio setting to base your creation.
Creating a film requires teamwork, cooperation, and collaboration – all of which are essential skills in project management. Other transferable skills include effective planning, time management and the conceptualisation and delivery of creative ideas. Our 'Film in a Day' experience takes your employees out of their comfort zone and into an enjoyable, innovative atmosphere where creativity is king.
