As Columbia pictures is just a subsidiary this gave them the chance to advertise their product a lot more as they can use the conglomerate that owns them to use lots of different advertisements. Other films that they have produced are 21 jump street and the social networking site. These were both very popular films.
To produce my product the company I think would be the best for this would be the Universal Pictures. I decided this as they are a multi million pound subsidiary that have a huge conglomerate too. This also gives me the opportunity to advertise my product using lots of different advertisements and media. They also have the experience in the biggest teen comedy movies which is relevant to what I am producing, for example they produced the American pie which was a huge teen comedy and similar to what I am producing. I believe that the Universal pictures would produce my product as they have done teen comedies before so would be up for producing another one to reach their wide audience.
