The Pitch

Lights, Camera, ACTION!

Working in teams participants are required to devise, write and film a 30 to 60 second TV commercial (TVC) on a chosen topic.

Each group is given preparation time and some tips on what makes a great TVC. Each commercial will make it's debut screening at the ‘Awards Ceremony’ and judged by a panel of world renowned experts (just grab a few people off the street!)

Producing a successful TVC takes all types, skills and ability. Not everyone is expected to be on camera, however each person plays a role in it’s creation. Whether it’s directing, writing, costume design, location scout. Staff are encouraged to work towards their strengths.

This is a fun activity which produces hilarious results for everyone to see during the debut screening!

There are a several things you need to get ready for Paparazzi Challenge.

Activity Space - You need to organise a space to watch the 'final videos'. This could be a room you set up as a make shift 'media room' or simply use your main meeting or training space.

Microphone and PA - Depending upon group size you may want to use a microphone to introduce each TV Commercial.

Some Activity Props – You will need to ensure each team has a digital video camera of some kind and the appropriate cords/means to download videos onto a central computer.

You'll also need:

  • A suitable computer, projector and sound system
  • Maybe some basic props/costumes/makeup for each team - these can be sourced from home, the office, an op-shop or discount variety store.
  • Drink and nibbles for the viewing session
  • Room decorations - totally up to you and your imagination. Some clients really enjoy creating an 'Oscars' theme for the viewing.
