ABOUT THE MOVIE PITCH

The Big Money Movie Pitch was a brand new competition for students aged 11 to 14 across the UK that launched at the start of 2015. Although the competition has now closed, the movie pitch teaching resources are still available. Why not bring financial capability to life via film? Take a look at the comprehensive Teachers' Toolkit which includes a wealth of stimulating and inspiring tasks and activities, as well as curriculum links.

The winning Big Money Movie Pitch, #COINSEQUENCES, was made into a short film by industry professionals and premiered at Vue Westfield London in July. The awards also included places at the premiere for two highly-commended schools, a viewing of The Minions following the film and a whole host of other benefits from Nationwide Building Society’s exciting Talking Numbers programme.

#COINSEQUENCES is now being used to educate young people on managing their money via many other channels.

TEACHERS' TOOLKIT

To enter the Big Money Movie Pitch, students followed a brief and submitted a pitch for short film about managing money. You can find these resources below including a Teachers’ Toolkit, Students' Guide, Curriculum links and Worksheets. They’re intended to help students explore and understand areas of financial capability at KS3, as well as the creative and pre-production process of filmmaking, which really brings this topic to life. There are also short films and animations on financial education, games, factsheets, quizzes, a finance glossary and recommended film education websites for young people.

MONEY MOVIES

We’ve included some short money movies from this website intended as guides and inspiration during the research stage of creating a movie pitch. Have a look at how these films approach the topic of financial education and how they make good use of the medium of film to engage the viewer. We've also included links to two excellent filmmaking guides for young people from Into Film and Media Education.
