The wolf of wall street case study for as media

  1. 1. Case study background to the films production.
  2. 2. Section b: institutions and audiences . A us film aimed at an intentional audience .had a large budget! $100,000,000 (estimated)
  3. 3. Budget:$100 million (estimated) gross :$90 million (estimated) Director- Martin Scorsese Previous films that he has directed: The Departed (2006), Gangs of New York (2002), Raging Bull (1980). In The Wolf of Wall Street DiCaprio plays Belfort, a Long Island penny stockbroker who served 36 months in prison for defrauding investors in a massive 1990s securities scam that involved widespread corruption on Wall Street and in the corporate banking world, including shoe designer Steve Madden.
  4. 4. . The wolf on wall street was mainly filmed in new York, as well as in the Bahamas. . This film didn’t use IMAX camera to film any of the sequences. .it hasn’t came out yet but I think it will have box office sucsess and will get get a high grossing release.
  5. 5. Important factors in the success of the film? • Marketing campaign • Viral marketing • Wall street- the history and the connection with the audience • Casting • Directors portfolio • Distribution – most cinemas to date • Online ticket sales
  6. 6. Sample exam question: • How do studios reach their audience nationally and internationally? • Answer- through marketing and distribution
  7. 7. Marketing • Traditional forms of marketing • Viral marketing and ARG • Issues for debate
  8. 8. Traditional forms of marketing
  9. 9. Print marketing * Print marketing includes advertising products and services through newspapers and magazines. Print marketing is both a mass-marketing and niche-marketing strategy. As a mass-marketing strategy, printed advertisements reach different classes of people, who might or might not have an interest in the product. In magazines, print marketing reaches out to the niche market that reads the magazine, such as women, fathers, teens or car lovers . The wolf of wall street would have used this technique as a marketing strategy getting there film out on magazines and relating it to all sorts of things. For example if there was an advert in a car magazine it mite show the particular car in the film that would be shown to get there audiences attention.
  10. 10. TV and film marketing. Another form of marketing that they would use for the wolf of wall street. They would use them in adverts or before some films like in films with similar characters in or the same production company or distribution company's. this is a good way to market there film as it is pushed out there and people would see it a lot more the only place were the wolf of wolf street would be played on TV is on movie channels until it is released from the cinema. This is one of the most expensive forms of marketing, its also doesn’t last as long as print marketing and radio.
  11. 11. Radio One more thing that they will use in marketing the wolf of wall street is the radio there is many ways that using radio will market the film. At first the distribution company's would pay for radio company's to talk about there film and promote it. However in the long run they wont have to pay the radio company's as more people watch it will be spoke about on air with radio station presenters giving there own opinions on the film. This is just like free promotion. This will promote there film in a positive or negative way in the matter of opinions on the film however it is still getting the word out to people that listen on air. This will make them want to go see the film and judge it for them self's.
  12. 12. Viral marketing
  13. 13. Viral marketing key points •Distribution: Viral content spreads like virus, in an ever expanding loop which may never end. For an online marketer, spreading content endlessly from person to person represents a superior strategy to promote content at a fraction of the effort and costs required by traditional marketing techniques. •Reach: A successful viral marketing campaign may exponentially increase the reach of your communications by placing you in touch with thousands of prospects which, with your traditional communication approach, you might not have ever intercepted. •Awareness: The more people will see your content, the more people will know who you are, what you do, what can you offer customers. Not only: by sharing content on a specific topic you will make yourself an authority in that field and people will start naturally coming to you asking for advice and recommendations. •Cost: Viral marketing is relatively inexpensive as you do not have to plan a huge budget to promote your products or start campaigns that meet the needs of all your potential customers. Once your content starts to go viral, your fans become your best marketing agents.
  14. 14. They used viral marketing in many ways in the marketing of this film they used things like uploading trailers onto YouTube. From doing this other people will download and upload the same trailer or clips of the film making it viral and once its done you will always find a viral video as it just gets duplicated over and over again. Also they would of put teaser trailers online that will also be part of there viral marketing strategies. One final viral marketing strategy is how they post adverts on websites like Facebook or websites that people use everyday. This would be very expensive to do as they would have to pay companies that own the websites to allow them to get there trailer or poster displayed on there sites. They may also have there own website. This isn't too expensive to do as there creating it themselves. But this is great for advertising they would also show reviews on there.
  15. 15. Distributors The two big distributers for this film were paramount pictures and universal pictures international.
