Make a Movie in a Day! - building relationships with your clients and your staff

“Everyone claps…there’s a great sense of achievement.”
Excerpt from Sunday Telegraph review, July 2003

This one-day event from the Metropolitan Film School is a quite unique and memorable experience, whether you are seeking to build relationships with your clients or among your staff.

Up to 5 teams of 4 people each work on a tight schedule to direct, shoot and edit a scene from a short black comedy (with real actors) within a day. The scenes are then stitched together and the whole film is screened – to much laughter and applause – during a celebratory dinner. Prizes for Best Film, Best Direction, Best Sound and Best Editing and Greatest Gaffe are given out.

“I’ve been on a large number of team-building and client relationship-building days and I can say without reservation that Make a Movie in a Day! is the best I’ve experienced – I felt as if I’d known my team for years at the end of it.”
Adam, investment banker

“Exchanging roles during the critical filming phase is a subtle learning and team-building experience: the ‘boss’ is holding the boom and the ‘new guy’ is directing…but the boom is drooping. Tone and professional behaviour come to the fore. A great day out for the troops.”
Anthony, sports marketing consultant

You select the day and date, either the weekend or midweek. The event is usually held in a comfortable art house cinema in London; however it can be delivered at other locations across the UK. It will always be customised for your organization, to include a specially-branded DVD of the final film which will be given to each attendee.

Note that small groups or individuals can also be accommodated on our regular scheduled days.
