Has anyone used actors for scenarios before?
Hi there everyone,
We're just starting development on a new course about respect in the workplace (harassment). We know the direction and style we want for the course and that's to use in depth scenarios to present real situations that have happened in the past (with names and pertinent details changed of course).
We want to use real photos and not silhouettes or cartoons. The problem we realized today is that we really shouldn't use our own employees since the scenarios will present some serious harassment claims and we wouldn't want an actual employee's photo attached to a "fake/real" scenario in the course.
We looked at eLearningArt.com and like the variety of poses but we are a utility company and need a variety of images of characters in a construction-type setting in addition to some office workers.
I thought today of possibly hiring a couple of actors for this and taking stills. Budget is a bit constrained... as it always is. Has anyone done this before that can share what this might cost? What about a local film school, do you think students would do this for some shots for their portfolio?
Would love to hear the community's thoughts on this.
