Networking Outside The Box Using Interactive Party Props

At the event I co-hosted featuring female bloggers back in 2010, I had the pleasure of meeting the makers of an awesome silent short, "Copernicus Comes Around" for the 48 Hour Film Project.


Besides being young, talented, and driven, they had an interesting way of promoting their film at some events for Internet Week in 2010 with the use of tennis balls to start up a dialogue. The film’s marketers placed a colorful tennis balls in the hands of the attendees with a message on it. Instinctively, we all had to ask about our party favor. Well they explained the film’s quirky premise and from there laughs ensued. At some point in the evening, even I sat down and helped them prepare for their next networking stop by writing their verbiage on their creative networking props.

Innovative and interactive!

They have more films in development and I for one am definitely looking forward to them.
