Divide your group into teams. Give each team a video camera. An adult or responsible teen can be chosen to film. Tell each team that they have several hours to make their own movie. You can give them a type of movie to make (Action, Sci-fi, comedy) – most will be comedy, no matter what type is given. They are to come up with the plot, write a script, and film the movie. The movies should be 30 minutes long. Then have them meet back to watch and eat popcorn. Give bonus points for getting strangers involved, soundtrack, special effects, etc. Give them as much or as little help as you want. For more fun, allow no editing. These videos are great to show at parent appreciation dinners or watchnight services.
