Agile & Lean Movie Making - Interactive Activity

This will be a talk as well as an interactive activity. The presentation is divided into 2 sections. First 25 minutes I will talk on the Lean & Agile Movie Making principles with more examples from my experience on our movies. 
In the next 20 minutes we will create a movie named “Mowgli” (2 scenes from Jungle Book) using Mobile phones with the participants playing role of a Director, Cameraman, Producer, Editor etc. (Scrum Team) and movie characters (Mowgli, Sher Khan, Baloo etc..) will be small toys which I am going to carry with me.

      Dear Balaji,

      Thank for writing !
      You are very correct. Looking at the time limit the last 20 minutes are designed very strictly and every minute of it has been well taken care of. My final presentation contains the details of each activities to be performed by the participants for the last 20 minutes.
      The presentation gives a very strong message that "Agile can't die which many people has started thinking now a days". Also, it tells how you can re-invent some of the agile techniques to suite your specific industry and your specific requirement etc.

    The proposal talks of working in 2 groups.

    How many persons from the audience would be engaged in such an activity?

    Is there a preferred number of attendees for this session?

      Dear Shiv, 

      Thanks for writing !

      As we will be shooting 2 scenes in 2 sprints considering the session time constraint, there will be 2 groups (Group A & B). For example, there are 10 tables (each containing 6 to 7 people on a table). 5 tables can do scene-1 as group-A and the rest 5 tables can do scene-2 as group-B. So, there is no restriction on number of participants, in this scenario we will be using 10 Mobile cameras. Please let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks!
