Adventure Studios' Team-Makers Unit Debuts “Living Stories” Immersive Teambuilding Experiences

"Stageplex Living Stories" by Adventure Studios Team-Makers Places Team-Building Participants in Role Play as part of Unfolding Stories with Live Actors

Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2005 – Themed Entertainment Consultant Adventure Studios LLC announced today that its Team-Makers Teambuilding Unit now offers an exhilarating new themed entertainment event format for corporations and other groups seeking a shared team experience – the "Immersive Living Story."

“We call the experiential format, StagePlex, “ said Amy Giggins, Marketing Director for Adventure Studios Team-Makers, “the term is intended to convey the idea of living, varied “live acted” experiences. Several years ago Adventure Studios developed the concept for StagePlex Living Stories as a fixed location-based themed entertainment venue, but taking the storylines and the experience to the event business is an exciting variation since we literally bring the show to our clients.” Team-Makers will integrate the event format in formal teambuilding programs, corporate picnics, and for special events at trade shows and conventions. "We all know the world is heading towards experiential marketing and experiential branding and design, and we view our StagePlex team-building events as part of this move to the experiential marketplace" said Amy Giggins.

The StagePlex Living Stories format places event guests in the midst of a story played out in real-time with actors. Event guests are immersed in the stories with specific tasks, problem-solving, and mysteries to explore. There is no stage, and team building participants follow the actors as the living story unfolds. “The StagePlex format was built for teambuilding,” said Don Bredberg, a creative consultant to Team-Makers, “we can take real historical events or create fantastical storylines, and allow our clients to achieve their team building objectives while thrilling their employees and bringing a shared experience back to their organization for ongoing impact.”

Originally conceived at Universal Studios by then Universal executive Don Bredberg and third-party Tamara producer Barrie Wexler, "Living Stories" was explored for application to the out-of-home entertainment business. Adventure Studios eventually partnered with Barrie Wexler to acquire rights to the concept from Universal Studios, change the "in development" concept name to StagePlex, and set out develop the Stageplex business. While plans remain to develop permanent StagePlex venues in key world cities, Adventure Studios Team-Makers unit has adapted the format to the team building event business.

Adventure Studios' Team-Makers Unit is based in Westlake Village, California. In June 2004 the highly experienced teambuilding unit managed the host site for Closing Ceremonies of the Las Vegas Corporate Challenge, one of the largest corporate Olympics and team-building programs in the U.S. Adventure Studios has been in operation since 1999 as designers and consultants to themed entertainment facilities and retail-entertainment centers throughout the U.S. and Asia. Adventure Studios LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, is under agreement to be acquired by affiliate Stonecreek LLC, a process to be completed by year-end.
