Watching from your rain-streaked cabin window as your plans for boat rides, water-skiing and hiking wash away in a downpour can be disheartening, especially if all you’ve got for entertainment are those same old
board games and VHS tapes. If the kids get restless, you may have trouble brewing.

But thanks to giant leaps in technology, a movie can still be the salve that removes the sting of disappointment. Simply unpack the camcorder (or even the digital camera) that you stowed in your outdoor gear to capture all those fun-in-the-sun moments. With a little planning and a lot of creativity, your weekend sheltered inside can become the weekend that you and your family produce a film of your very own. Take THAT Hollywood!
