  • 1. What Kind of Media Institution Might Distribute your Product and why?
  • 2. Where do you Think you Would see your Film?
    • My film is an independent film and is most likely to be seen either on DVD at an art house or via download.
    • This is because the big companies produce and distribute their own work.
    • Independent art houses like ‘Lexi Cinema’ and college film societies or digital distributors like ‘Coffee Shorts’ and ‘Lionsgate’, show niche work on a smaller scale
  • 3.
  • 4. What Type of Distribution do you Think is Possible?
    • Because this film appeals to young people they would use their technology and would see this film through viral media
    • Students of media and film fans would want to see this film at Art Houses
    • Thriller enthusiasts would download this film if marketed well
    • Due to the low budget this film wouldn’t appeal to mainstream cinema
  • 5. Art House Cinemas
  • 6. Do you Think your Film would be Seen at a Cinema?
    • This film would be seen at an art house which would show independent alternative films.
    • It wouldn’t be at a mainstream cinema like VUE because this film is too low budget and appeals to a small niche market.
    • Distributors that might support this film are the UK Film Council and Dog Woof.
  • 7. Mainstream Cinemas Film Distributors
  • 8. Could your Film be Digitally Distributed?
    • Yes because it appeals to the audience of young people, film fans, and media students.
    • These groups use alternatives to cinemas such as digital distribution.
    • Digital distribution is cheaper than mainstream cinemas so pays back costs with a small audience.
    • Digital distribution relies on word of mouth recommendation which would apply to this film.
  • 9. What are the Disadvantages of Digital Distribution?
    • Disadvantages include:
    • You don’t gain as many viewers
    • Less marketing and investment
    • Special effects can lose impact if not on a big screen
    • You don’t make as much money
  • 10. What are the Advantages of Digital Distribution?
    • It is much cheaper to distributed because you don’t incur mainstream marketing.
    • You can use websites to create a buzz.
    • Digital distribution uses word of mouth.
    • Digital distribution is fast and can be done virally.
  • 11. How does your Work Compare to Professional Film?
    • My film may have lacked financial backing but it was a different and subtle approach to the mainstream films.
    • This suited the thriller genre for example it worked really well for the Blair Witch Project.
    • A film is mainly dependent on the quality and imagination of the script and the producer’s approach.
    • I would be interested in using different techniques if I was given the chance to make the whole film.
  • 12. ‘ The Blair Witch Project’ made $240 million with a budget of $60,000 ‘ Paranormal Activity’ made over £100 million with a recorded budget of $11,000 ‘ Rocky’ with a budget of $1 million made $225 million worldwide
