  3. 3. The importance of cross media convergence and synergy in production, distribution, and marketing DC Entertainment, a company of Warner Bros. Entertainment, which itself is owned by Time Warner. This means they have the right to use Lego characters such as batman in the film The film is based on the Lego line of construction toys
  4. 4. The technologies that have been introduced in recent years at the levels of production, distribution, marketing, and exchange In July 2012, a Lego-user contest announced on the movie's Facebook page would choose a winning Lego vehicle to appear in the film. Tech production – CGI, able to have a global team working on the film, easy to transfer files between countries, computers etc. Tech distribution – able to be shown digitally with ease, no need for conversion. Tech marketing – online, apps, trailers, physical posters etc. Fan based films on youtube? Tech exchange – this will be blu ray, dvd, think about piracy or torrents for sharing.

  10. 10. Audience Lego, the Danish company, for years refused to entertain Hollywood’s overtures. “We are not an entertainment company. And we were very much in doubt about what a Lego movie would look like so we said no many times,” said Lego chief marketing officer Mads Nipper at the afterparty, referring to the many pitches he heard. Still, he and the other execs were eventually won over by producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee who talked of a movie paying tribute to creativity and imagination. The script also took years to craft. Lord and Miller worked off a foundation by Dan and Kevin Hageman and began writing four years ago. They said they were still writing even weeks ago when trying to mix the movie. (We’re a little obsessive,” said Miller.)
  11. 11. Pre-Production The film has been in development at Warner Bros. since 2008. By August 2009, Dan and Kevin Hageman were writing the script for a comedy action-adventure live-action/animated film. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were in talks in June 2010 to write and direct the film. Warner Bros. green-lit the film by November 2011, with a planned 2014 release date. The Australian studio Animal Logic was contracted to provide the animation, which was expected to comprise 80% of the film. By this time Chris McKay, the director of Robot Chicken, had also joined Lord and Miller to co-direct. In March 2012, Lord and Miller revealed the film's working title, Lego: The Piece of Resistance, and a storyline. In April 2012, Warner Bros. scheduled the film for release on February 28, 2014, a date that subsequently changed. By June 2012, Chris Pratt had been cast as the voice of Emmet, the lead Lego character, and Will Arnett voicing Lego Batman; the role of Lego Superman was offered to Channing Tatum. By August 2012, Elizabeth Banks was hired to voice Lucy (later renamed Wyldstyle) and Morgan Freeman to voice Vitruvius, an old mystic. In October 2012, Warner Bros. shifted the release date for the film, simply titled Lego, to February 7, 2014. In November 2012, Alison Brie, Will Ferrell, Liam Neeson, and Nick Offerman signed on for roles. Brie voices a member of Emmet's team with a powerful secret, Ferrell voices a villain named President Business, Neeson voices a foe called Bad Cop, and Offerman voices Metalbeard, a pirate seeking revenge on the President. Production Warner Bros. has been looking to expand its own development of animated films for a while now, and Stern has actually been a big part of that process. Last year it was announced that the studio was bringing in a brain trust of writers and directors to help develop new projects, and names involved in that story included Stern, Lord & Miller, Nicholas Stoller (The Muppets/Forgetting Sarah Marshall), and the team of John Requa & Glenn Ficarra (Bad Santa). In addition to a LEGO Movie sequel, WB is also working on an animated film called Storks and another called Smallfoot. The Wrap is reporting that Warner Bros. will announce a sequel to The Lego Movie. It will be written by Jared Stern (The Internship, Mr. Popper’s Penguins) and Michelle Morgan (Girl Most Likely). It should come as no surprise to see Warner Bros. greenlight The Lego Movie 2 (or whatever they end up calling it) this early. It’s commonplace that animated films get sequels, and they often get them planned before the wide public even sees them. There’s a formula that works well for studios. What do kids love even more than animated characters? Animated characters that they already know they love. If that weren’t enough already, all signs are pointing to The Lego Movie being a major hit this weekend. It’s faced up against the George Clooney directed The Monuments Men, which has a huge A-list cast, as well as Vampire Academy, which is based on the popular book series. These three would seemingly make a crowded and competitive weekend, but all signs point to The Lego Movie running away with the box office (and finally putting a stop to Ride Along‘s run in the top spot). Advanced research suggests The Lego Movie will make at least $40 million.

  15. 15. Exhibition The Lego Movie will premiere at LEGOLAND California on February 6, 2014,[29] and is scheduled to be released in theaters on February 7, 2014. The 3D animation, set in a world made up of plastic children's blocks, took $69.1 million (£42m) between Friday and Sunday, according to studio estimates.
  16. 16. Digital Sound mix: Dolby Digital, Datasat, SDDS Aspect Ratio: 2.35 : 1 Camera: Arri Alexa The animation is a combination of stop-motion and CGI. The creators deliberately tried to make the movie feel like stop-motion, and avoided making the computer-generated effects look too obvious. This was done to make the movie look like real Legos
