Aisa Hai Paisa

We all love watching movies. Here is chance to become a part of a movie – your own production! Kandy Valley has organized a short film competition where you make your own movie and pitch it in competition with other budding film makers.

Your movie will be showcased at the Kandy Valley fest. Each entry will be evaluated by a qualified team at Kotak Mutual Fund. It will also be aired on our YouTube channel where your friends and fans can see it and vote for you. Film making involves many skills including production, direction, scripting, acting, make-up....while you may be talented in one area, you may have friends, neighbors and relatives who are talented in others. Teams of 4-20 people can be formed to make your masterpiece. Incase you do not wish to form your own team, you also join hands with others who have enrolled to form super talented teams. You are free to join as many teams as you like and make and submit as many movies as you want. This is your chance to exhibit your talents and learn a lot in the process. While we are not asking you for a professional camera or props and setting, we do ask you to use your imagination and come up with an innovative and original movie, We warn you, film making requires creativity and hard work. So if you feel you are upto the challenge, then join in the fun. The movie making will not just give the participants a chance to learn about money and movie making skills, it also builds on some vital life skills. Learning and innovation skills prepare young people for increasingly complex, life and work environments and give them an edge in today’s extremely competitive world. The skills they will develop include:

• Creativity and Innovation
• Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
• Communication
• Collaboration



Theme for the film
The theme for the short film asks you the question “Kaisa Hai Paisa” and the movie must bring out an answer which says “Aisa Hai Paisa”. The movie should revolve around a perspective on money – what money means to different people or about different aspects of money. The movie could also be about the mechanics or working of money.

To get your creative juices flowing, some of the topics one can produce are
• The value of pocket money
• Why should I invest my money?
• Our generation – What we understand about money
• Budgeting – Isn’t it something the government does?
• Savings – how much should I save
• Borrowing- the good and bad of borrowing
• Spending – needs no explanation here
• Banking- vital to our lives

This is certainly not an exhaustive list but just a starting point for your mind to get ticking. The aim is create a film which is as creative as possible with limited recourses and a limited budget. All you need is an idea developed into a script and then brought to life by a video camera.
So Lights! Camera! Action!
