  • 10. FISH TANK Fish Tank is aimed at local audiences around London and Essex. It shows the parts of England not seen from outside countries and only affects local audiences. The social realism of the film is achieved through the hand held shots, natural lighting and mise-en-scene used to show the low budget of the film. As it is an independent the actors were unknown, as Katie Jarvis the main actor was spotted by the person responsible or casting when having an argument with her boyfriend, Brian. For independent films it isn’t known how much the actors were paid but there are 3 known ways of how this can be approached, upfront pay, credit and a copy of the film or deferred pay on the backend per certain conditions. The film is a 15 but there was several issues in deciding this, as the film went into the BBFC guidelines of a 15 and 18. The problems were around • very strong language • sex • sex references • recreational drug use • discriminatory terms • possible animal cruelty • moderate violence CLASSIFICATION

They spoke to Absolute Radio and advertised the film through The Nations Noodle. As this was an independent film they didn’t have a big budget to advertise the film so they used social networking to create awareness such as Facebook and twitter accounts.
