Event Information

Newscast is a film team building activity with a twist! The teams will each be given a feature prop and a department to represent. They will need to create a story around that prop to cover in a 30-60 second piece to camera for the newscast. For example we can have one team covering the intergalactic Olympic Games with space hoppers and a Darth Vader costume on Mars, another in Moscow with a Straight Jacket or at the Arctic Circle with a penguin suit! We can also have teams for weather, business, city gossip, health etc.!

Teams will be required to create the dialogue as well as build and decorate their own “set” to reflect their story. There is a well-stocked set workshop with backdrops and a great range of equipment to create their own bespoke set if they wish. Additionally we will supply a vast selection of generic props for them to use. An anchorman will tie this all together as he/she takes them back and forward to the various correspondents around the world … and Milky Way!

Having done all this we then edit it all together. And hey presto! You have your evening entertainment.

Newscast combines creativity in script writing, use of props, set design and building, plus clear and effective communication as well as effective time management in one of our most creative team building activities.

" The Newscast event went so well – all groups were engaged & enthused by the filming activity. I have only heard positive feedback so far! It proved a fun & interactive way for employees to get to know each other better, and have something tangible to show for it!"
