Film Critic

> Initiate communication

At the start of the meeting, each participant will express their mood in relation to work so the host can best adapt the activities to follow. They do so by choosing from 13 different famous films!

Pre-requisites

Prepare a Survey activity that asks the question: ‘If your work right now were a film, it would be... ’

Only one answer is allowed. 

Our template includes 13 classic films. Feel free to change things up by using your own film programming depending on the situation. Simply add or delete films.

This is a quick activity, and usually there won’t be a need to time it.

Activity settings Survey

  • Activity format: Single choice
  • Possible answers: our selection of 13 films in this template (the list can be edited if desired)
  • Results: at the end of the activity

Process

Summary

Feel free to get participants talking about the film choices and what these films have to say. Finish up by describing how you’re going to become a film critic and best take into account the chosen filmography for the rest of the discussions.If the films chosen are mainly dramatic (Titanic, Apocalypse Now or Jurassic Park), consult the group on the best way to continue the meeting. It might be best to postpone it or take the time to address the causes of these dramatic scripts. 

A Brainstorming activity or a DAKI could pinpoint the causes and help the team move forward.
