Use of Film Making to develop Finacial Capability for 11-13 year olds

Added 26th December 2012

What do young people think about money?- 

Students aged 11-13 were given a 500 budget and 25 hours of a filmmakers time to create a short film that conveyed their thoughts or messages about money. These films were made before the banking crisis between 2008 and 2010. Screened to audiences in school and at a awards event at the Watershed Cinema in Bristol


Each school built a team of students who created a plan with a budget using an on-line budgeting tool to raise the 500 and gain access to a film maker. The students were the Producers and Directors and they could spend money on anything from scriptwriting to catering. They could also save money by filling job roles themselves.
