Teddy Bobo Film Club, Series 6: Friday October 7


Teddy Bobo Film Club: THINK OUTSIDE THE SCREEN ™

The Teddy Bobo Film Club will hold its sixth series of spectacular experiments in film study + lateral thinking this Friday evening in Richmond (Melbourne, Australia).

The Format

  1. Entertainment: A number of very short (under 3 minutes) films, videos, and film excerpts from vastly different genres are presented.
  2. Film appreciation: After each film is screened, there is a brief period of study of the film, its background, the purpose it is meant to serve, what makes it distinctive, its production values, any curious observations, appreciation of its art and technology, etc. We call this segment “think inside the screen”.
  3. Thinking skill: Then, bouncing off some aspect of the film, a tightly-focused thinking exercise, led by Coach Prodos, and using the formal lateral thinking and constructive thinking methods developed by Edward de Bono is conducted! This is the think outside the screen™ segment. These exercises are not puzzles. They are not IQ games. They are not “positive thinking”. They’re simple tried and true methods which, as you practice, will improve your constructive & creative thinking skills.
