Speakeasy was set the challenge of producing a series of four events to launch the training process for the ‘Games Workforce’ – a group of around 16,000 volunteers. We devised an innovative and stimulating format based on a Saturday night ‘live TV’ format mixing theatre, audience interaction, comedy and a series of films and pre-recorded inserts.
Our ‘Signature Move’ film encouraged the audience to get creative and come up with a new move or gesture that would be synonymous with Glasgow2014. Presented by an intrepid Glasgwegian presenter, the result was a punchy, high-energy piece that encouraged the workforce to get involved by performing their idea.
Our other films included a whistle-stop tour of all 15 games precincts, fronted by sprinter and sports correspondent Iwan Thomas.
