Re: How much space do I need to film 5 people in one room?

For simplicity, with your time frame,  I would use a small sensor consumer camcorder.  Set it on manual focus.  Pick your recording format.  If you have time figure out how to set a custom white balance. Use focus peaking and/or focus magnification to set the manual focus.  Press Record.  Something like a Sony FDR-AX53 or Canon or Panasonic equivalents would work.   Camcorders at this price point do not typically make full manual an option. The Sony is $848 new and goes to 26.8mm on the wide end.  Has a Mic in. If you only want HD you can spend less.

Small sensor camcorders will need a lot of light.  You could use the on board mic but the audio will be poor.
