STORY-BASED TRAINING FILMS THAT STICK WITH EMPLOYEES

"Most incredible training video I've ever seen. If I could I would have rated it a 12. Bravo!"
- American Business Awards

STORIES THAT RESONATE. TRAINING THAT WORKS.

IMAGINE employees raving about your training videos, anticipating the next one, or moved to tears in their cubicle. It’s no fantasy. We’ve turned training films from a four letter word into must see TV.

RESONATE PICTURES uses our Hollywood network to create binge-worthy, story-driven content that captures employee attention and impacts behavior. 

People don't want to be told.  They want to be moved.

SAMPLE MOVIE CLIPS

A few examples how we've been using the neuroscience of story since 2007

to train employees in Ethics & Compliance, Sales, Management, and Safety.

MIXING WORK & PERSONAL INFORMATION


ANTI-TRUST

A series of misguided actions with no ill motives get misconstrued as anti-competitive.

"HUMAN MINDS YIELD HELPLESSLY TO THE SUCTION OF STORY."

- Jonathan Gottschall

NEUROSCIENCES SHOWS STORY IS THE BEST VEHICLE FOR DELIVERING A MESSAGE THAT IMPACTS BEHAVIOR

HOW STORY CHANGES THE BRAIN

NEUROCHEMICAL EFFECT

A well told story activates neurochemicals responsible for memory and releases the “empathy” chemical - which influences actions and increases motivation.

THEORY OF MIND

The imaginary world serves as a proving ground for vital social skills, becoming a “flight simulator” for real life situations.

SENSORY CORTEX

FMRI machines have shown that brains on story look similar to participants in the action, not spectators. Experience is the best teacher.

MIRROR NEURONS

Observing an action activates the same part of the brain that lights up when physically experiencing the action.

NARRATIVE TRANSPORT

Properly structured stories focus viewer attention and inextricably tie their emotions to the characters, which leads the viewer to internalize the story’s lessons.

EMOTION vs LOGIC

"Stories are the most effective structure to share information, connect people emotionally to a cause and build commitment."   - Paul Zak, Neuroscientist
