Comic Strip Capers
Comic strip capers is an enjoyable, thought provoking and laughter inducing team activity based around the production of simple comic strips.
The tasks and deadlines for completion of the challenge are fun based, but they still call upon the use of a number of core skills including: Planning : Leadership : Communications : Exploration of personal talent.
The online option also offers a number of additional benefits for staff working from home during these unprecedented times, such as
Improving mental health
Retention of office banter and interaction
In additional to teams searching for and digging deep for their comedic, artistic and creative skills, they will need to work together to create either a stand alone 4 - 6 frame comic strip, or a full A4 sized comic strip that will be linked with those from all the other teams, to create a full comic strip story.
The basic format runs along the following lines:
Online briefing of what the comic strip ‘’must or may’’ need to include
Teams brainstorm their ideas
Creation and submission of comic strips
Judging (by teams)
Sounds simple right?? Well actually, it is …. But comic strips can easily go wrong !!!
What’s Good about comic strip capers:
Be it online, or at a venue (once things return to normal) the informal nature and style of the comic strip caper challenges will spark lots of lively, fun and possibly loud discussions, all of which should encourage everyone within the teams to explore their thoughts, ideas, talents and strengths and then be able to communicate them effectively to their team, so that everything can easily be transferred into wonderful and witty cartoon strips.
