Pitch ideas

The project inspired me is called Up Series. It is a series of documentary film produced by Granada Television that have followed the lives of fourteen British children since 1964, when they were seven years old. So far the documentary has had eight episodes spanning 56 years (one episode every seven years). The children were selected to represent the range of socio-economic backgrounds in Britain at that time, with the explicit assumption that each child’s social class predetermines their future. The motif of this documentary questions about religion, family, class, happiness and psychological state dominate many of the interviews, as well as inquiries about the worries and concerns subjects have for their future.


Group idea

Make a documentary. Give a certain allowance for each kids, document how they use the money. Every seven year interview them on the change of their perception on spending money; what had influenced them by giving them the money, and how their family upbringing teach them to use the money in an efficient and meaningful way. It’s an on-going film. The scale and the budget of the project determine by the number of interviewees and the money given each day.

Objective: how your values determine your social class.

Individual idea


It inspired me to make a documentary which enables the viewer to think about this aspect: how can your values and habits determine your social class.

Time Span: In Up Series, it is an on-going documentary which spans 56 years to record the different walks of life living in different socio-economic backgrounds. For myself, I would keep the project time span within one year.

The script: by observing the children’s habits and family values, observe how they utilise the money. Give them 50 cents everyday, at the end of the year they could earn $182.50. And who will be the richest and who use it in the right way.

Objective: How habits influence you to save money
