Energy filled the hallways of TrueLogic once again as employees prepared for a favorite annual event: Halloween!
With this year’s theme, Scream Fest, the company revived a category that further taps into the creativity of the groups. On top of transforming their rooms and dressing up, the contestants were required to create a horror-filled movie trailer related to their room décor. Teams looked for inspiration from different suspense/thriller, horror, and psychological films to design their freaky flicks.
What raised the stakes this year was the opening of TrueLogic’s new office on the opposite side of the floor. So, instead of only three, four groups vied for the top prizes. As always, the results were amazing!
Scream Fest kicked off at 5 pm with the room tours. Hosts Keith Rosales and Angie Duarte led the judges to each of the rooms, the “movie sets” where the groups acted out their stories. Judges Zahra Bianca Saldua, Khristine Palad, and Voltaire dela Rosa, together with a few other spectators, had their share of chills and goosebumps with each room’s presentation.
After the room tours, the entire TrueLogic team gathered in the New Office to watch the Halloween trailers that every group so painstakingly created.
- R&D, Marketing, Product Dev and IT hit a raw nerve with their office suspense film, “Overtime.” Indeed, aren’t we all frightened of it?
- Content and Finance delved into the cult culture and fake family facade with their Stepford Wives-inspired concept, “The Invited.”
- What if you were vlogging about human experiments and the tables turned on you? Sales, SEO, and Business Dev’s blogger slasher, “No Cameras Allowed,” was about this.
- DMG, Web Dev, Social Media, PPC, Workforce, and Motion Graphics explored the family issues of an only child with their psychological thriller, “Missing Pieces.”
While the judges mulled over the “spine-tingling” entries, contestants for the Best Dressed Runway Walk paraded in their spooky attire, inspired by the roles they played in the videos or room production. The Town Hall and awarding of prizes followed.
