We’re in the middle of movie award season which always gets me thinking about …. films. The Golden Globe and the Screen Actors Guild awards have been handed out. Germany’s Berlinale and America’s Academy Awards are right around the corner. I know folks who are practically addicted to watching movies because the films deliver an artistic fix. Yet, others could care less about watching movies as the experience doesn’t seem to add any value to their lives. I respect the reactions from folks who are in both camps. However, there is a third group of film lovers: those of us who use film to enhance learning and life. This blog is intended to explore the impact that film may have on learning and on enhancing life by encouraging the readers to ask and answer questions and to share their experiences and best practices. Ultimately, it’s about having some fun with this topic and giving back to those who wish to understand more about film’s impact in these areas. I’ll share my research results, describe examples using film effectively and perhaps not so effectively in a corporate setting, and discuss a few creative corporate films that were written and produced as parodies of well known Hollywood films such as Field of Dreams, The Godfather, James Bond, and Mission Impossible. The next blog will include how my obsession with film and learning began. Until then, thanks for your time reading my first blog.
