I'm on a quick road trip trying to film 10 video small group lessons in two days. Last year, we filmed ten lessons that our leaders could throw in the dvd player without any prep. The idea was that they would be used when a leader hadn't had time (or taken the time) to prep the usual lesson, if it felt like the group needed a break from the usual curriculum or for any other reason.
We purposely only filmed 10 lessons because we didn't want the use of video curriculum to become the norm in a small group. Despite the super poor quality lighting and sound, our groups absolutely loved the stuff.
So this year we are going way more professional in hopes of producing a much higher quality resource for our leaders and students.
I've written ten 'scripts' but I tend to freestyle quite a bit so it should be interesting. We've budgeted our time to allow about one hour per video! I'm stressed about the next two days, but excited to put some better stuff in the hands of our leaders.
