Create Your Own Ad

The idea of even creating your own TV commercial, let alone in under 2 hours, is a daunting assignment.  And that’s how we like it.

The group is briefed that within 2 hours, teams of approx 10 people will each plan, storyboard and film their own TV commercial.


Prior to the day we work with you to create a theme, or a brief, that teams receive on the day.

This can be anything from creating a TVC based around each of your company values, bringing your vision or mission to life, new and/or existing company products or services, or the themes of your conference.

If you want the activity to be non-business related, we can work out some themes to simply get teams being creative.


The experience kicks off with a briefing to the entire group on what the theme is and show some real-world TVC’s to highlight different advertising styles and variations on storytelling.

We then break up into smaller project teams of 10-12 people to begin generating ideas based on the theme. But don’t worry, teams aren’t on their own.


We have an onsite team of creative film-makers and performers to help extract ideas from each team.

With over 10 years experience, our team are experts at facilitating the session to ensure everyone is engaged and contributes during the activity.

Each team will then storyboard their idea and dig through our props and costumes to help tell their story.


When all teams have shot all of their scene and completed their storyboard, our creative team then take over to edit the final video to be ready for playback within 24 hours.

If you need the completed video sooner, no probs, we can have our team edit the video onsite in as little as 2 hours however some additional fees apply.

You’ll then be on track to play them back at your dinner later that day.

The end result is a collection of (often hilarious) TV commercials that your team created from scratch.

Suitable indoors or outdoors, Create Your Own Ad is an engaging activity that can be customised to meet your objectives.

I cannot recommend Hidden Door enough. Everyone I dealt with from the planning phase to the end of our conference was amazing and incredibly helpful, but best of all – the creative activities made our conference a huge success!
