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 creates cinematic, story-driven content that makes your code of conduct meaningful and personal.
CASE STUDY: ANTI-TRUST TRAINING
BREATHING UNDERWATER is a cautionary tale of a company wide billion dollar lawsuit experienced through the eyes of one employee. The client wanted to personalize anti-competitive practices for employees and get them to understand how and why actions can be misconstrued by the competitor. They haven't experienced anti-trust litigation since they began training with the film. They have used it for six years and intend to use it another six, making the training more cost effective than renewing licenses year after year.
CASE STUDY: CODE OF CONDUCT TRAINING
OBJECTIVE: train management on conducting employee reviews. Navigating difficult conversations was a top concern in these events. We interwove two employee review sessions that allowed the audience to observe and identify personality traits that would come to surface during the review.
Characters established and storylines planted in this scene that intertwines employees' stories who are headed into their annual review.
In this scene, the manager walks a line between reigning in the employee's cockiness while not squashing his confidence.
CASE STUDY: EPISODIC FAUX DOC TRAINING
The client has a fast paced sales environment that includes 10+ calls a day and fighting for the time of busy store owners. This training mixes humor and intelligence while communicating an understanding of the pressures employees face. It's flight simulator training that puts employees in the shoes of the characters with believable and relatable situations and conversations.
In the first season, Scott is new to the job and his supervisor Rachel is showing him the lay of the land. This trailer is used to build anticipation for the training.
This training spans multiple years and grows up with the characters. Several seasons later, Scott is being considered for promotion to Unit Manager. In this clip, Rachel guides him through utilizing systems and processes to grow the business.
CASE STUDY: SAFETY TRAINING LEVERAGES VALUE BEYOND TRAINING
Client was able to leverage their safety training with this tension filled trailer, giving their name and brand wider recognition while cementing public perception as a safety-first company.
COVERED drills into every construction worker's core desires – get home to loved ones safe each night while avoiding mistakes that injure co-workers. Drew’s first day on the job finds him caught between his foreman’s demand to do things correctly and the prevailing “wisdom” of a grizzled veteran who completes tasks with “common sense” shortcuts. It’s a battle over the right way versus right now, where lives hang in the balance.

"HOW TO MAKE CORPORATE TRAINING ROCK"
We brought sitcom style training to the workplace. Dan and Chip Heath, authors of NY Times bestseller MADE TO STICK, discussed our original hit series Aggrieva in this issue of Fast Company Magazine."New episodes debuted each Monday, but employees were so ravenous for the next episode that they started tracking them down on the company's staging server where the videos were posted on the preceding Friday.
