Most of us watch television, but have very little idea as to how our favourite television programmes are actually produced. Well, this is your chance to step inside where the magic happens and experience it for yourself!
Chillisauce offers a unique teambuilding day where participates work against the clock in a professional studio to produce two television programmes, from start to finish, as though you are working on "live TV". This fun filled day out the office is a true insight to how television programmes are made, and a great environment to spend a day with colleagues in order to achieve a common goal.
The event starts with a briefing of the day's activities from your instructor and a talk on the health and safety considerations of working in a professional television studio. Then participates are given a tour of the studio that they will be running for the rest of the day; the production gallery, cameras, studio floor and set.
Once that bit is over, it's 100% down to you and your team! Your challenge is to produce and record two television programmes successfully:
Quiz Panel Show
Based on a similar format to the popular quiz ‘Have I Got News For You', where the presenter opens an envelope of questions live on air, and two teams battle it out, in a head-to-head competition, to correctly answer the questions for points...sound easy? That's only a tiny piece of the jigsaw! While all of that is going on infront of the cameras, the rest of the group will take on crucial roles behind the scenes, which include the Director, Technical Crew, Sound Mixers, Camera Operators, Floor Manager and Visual Mixers, and during the day everyone will rotate and have a bash at each position.
Will you be running around the studio like headless chickens with the responsibility and shame of an axed show on your hands, or work together to create the next big thing and challenge Jonathan Ross for his Friday Night slot?
Shopping Channel Slot
"On air in 5, 4, 3, ..., ..." this task will not only challenge your team to operate the technical equipment in the studio, but will also test your team's ability to successfully sell a selection of products ranging from wigs to jewellery, live on air, through the medium of TV.
