Low budget vs high budget (1)

  1. 1. Low budget vs High budget Bethany Braine
  2. 2. FILM ONE (low budget film): The Perks of Being a Wallflower FILM TWO (high budget film): Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End Films
  3. 3. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – distributed by Summit Entertainment Lionsgate. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – distributed by Buena Vista Pictures, Walt Disney. What are the main institutions used for each of the films?
  4. 4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Budget: $13 million Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – Budget: $300 million How much money was used to produce each film? (The budget)
  5. 5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – World wide gross: $33,384,127 million Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – World wide gross: $963,420,425 million How much money was made from each of the films?
  6. 6. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Summit Entertainment Lionsgate: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End – Walt Disney: How well known are the production companies for both the high-budget and low-budget film? Revenue $2.078 billion Operating Income $273.1 million Net Income $232.1 million Total assets $2.761 billion Total equity $53.559 million Revenue $42.278 billion Operating Income $9.260 billion Net income $5.682 billion Total assets $74.898 billion Total equity $39.759 billion
  7. 7. Walt Disney has a much higher operating income and net income. Compared to Summit Entertainment Lionsgate, Walt Disney has 72.137 billion dollars more total assets. Also, Walt Disney has39.705 billon dollars more total equity than Summit Entertainment Lionsgate. Walt Disney has made 517 movies and Summit Entertainment Lionsgate has only made 80. Differences (in terms of institutions)
  8. 8. Both Walt Disney and Summit Entertainment Lionsgate have very similar target audiences (teens, adults and senior citizens, minus the children for Summit Entertainment Lionsgate.) Both are highly successful distributions and make big profits on their films. Similarities (in terms of institutions)
  9. 9. Summit Entertainment Lionsgate: The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Was this successful? Very, its’ budget was $120 millionand the worldwide grossing was $829,685,377. Walt Disney: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Strangers’ Tides Was this successful? Yes, its’ budget was $150-250 million and the worldwide grossing was $1,043,871,802. What other films has the production company made?
  10. 10. Summit Entertainment Lionsgate: adventure, drama, fantasy and romance. Walt Disney: animation, family, fantasy, musical and romance. Is this important when considering who could produce your film? I would probably choose Walt Disney out of the two companies to produce my film. The genres that they usually produce are ones that I like and feel interested to research. Although Summit Entertainment Lionsgate produce fantasies and romanctics as well, overall Walt Disney seem more successful and have made more films, as well as having a higher total asset budget and making bigger profits. What genre of films does the company usually produce?
  11. 11. Walt Disney: targets all ages including adults, teens and children as well as the senior citizens, but especially children. This is definitely reflected through their film choice, all ages do watch Disney films and most enjoy them. However the films vary from Beauty and the Beast to Mary Poppins and all are still successful. Summit Entertainment Lionsgate: summit entertainment is highly similar. However it targets more of the older generation, for example teens, adults and senior citizens rather than mostly children. This is also reflected through their film choice, and also through their BBFC Certificates (12, 12A, 15.) Is this reflected through their film choice, or does this vary? This varies for Summit Entertainment Lionsgate as their BBFC Certificate varies depending on the film, however Walt Disney targets mainly children, but make films adults enjoy too. What audiences do each of the institutions aim to appeal to?
  12. 12. I feel that Walt Disney outperforms the other and could claim to be more successful for the following reasons: They tend to make more of a profit and have a higher revenue, operating Income, net income, total assets and total equity. They have made many more films (in fact, 437 more!) The genre and target audience for this distribution is very clear. Which outperforms the other?
