This technique allows students and teachers to use familiar technology (phones, tablets, etc.) to demonstrate language acquisition.  The first step in the process is to introduce new vocabulary through TPRS-style question and answer sessions.  The second step is to guide the students through creating a story using the vocabulary.  The third step is to collaboratively turn the story into a movie script, using both narration and dialog.  The fourth step is to block and plan the making of the movie.  Then, the movie is recorded by the teacher or student.  Finally, the movie debuts to a rapt audience and is posted to the class YouTube account for parental viewing pleasure.
This interactive approach allows all students to participate from extroverted actors, to introverted recorders, to deep thinking writers.  Because they have the opportunity to play with target vocabulary and sentence structures, students acquire the language almost effortlessly and demonstrate greater recall.
