Researching The Film Industry Sarah Ratcliffe
Production It is the basic process to make the film happen. Production involves a number of little stages that make a huge impact. This includes: an initial story, idea, or commission, through scriptwriting, casting, shooting, editing, and screening the finished product before the audience which can lead to the release of the film. There are many people that carry out each task as groups to get it done. The work could take several months to several years to complete, depending on the movie idea.
These are only some of the production companies.Yes, they’re responsible for all the good things which make the filmhappen. But if something goes wrong, such as an actor breaking hisleg, they are held responsible for that as well.Film production is a three main step process:1) Pre-Production (Developing the script)2) Production (Shooting the script)3) Post-Production (Editing the film and adding the sound tracks).

Distribution A film distributor is a company or individual responsible for the marketing of a film. The distributor may set the release date of a film and the method by which a film is to be shown or made available for viewing. 20TH Century Fox and Warner Bros for example are film distributors. Their initial ‘job’ In the film industry is to release the film to the public and attract/convince or encourage the audience to watch the film. This can be either through cinema, dvd etc. The distribution of the film is an important step as without viewers there’s obviously no point in the film. They release the film to the public in a way where they think will attract and secure the viewers attention…therefore then watching the film.

Marketing Film promotion is the practice of promotion specifically in the film industry. Because film studios are businesses, they are motivated by profit, which means they are always afraid of releasing a movie to empty theatres. To make sure that the returns are good and its been worthwhile, most major studio films are supported by large marketing ‘campaigns’.
