EXAMPLE CLIPS: ANTITRUST 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.

EXAMPLE CLIPS: 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.

CLIP 01

Characters established and storylines planted in this scene that intertwines employees' stories who are headed into their annual review.

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

EXAMPLE CLIPS: 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 the lay of the land. This trailer is used to build anticipation for the training. 


CLIP 02

EXAMPLE CLIP: HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING

SYNOPSIS

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.


PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO BE TOLD. THEY WANT TO BE MOVED.

"People tend to change their behavior after hearing compelling stories"

Dr. Rickett's research revealed people "exposed to story-based warnings made about 20% fewer errors, compared with teams exposed to equivalent non-narrative warnings."
