Ownership in Media

  1. 1. Ownership in the Media<br />By Claire Dring<br />
  2. 2. How does the British Film Council help fund the British Film Industry?<br />The British Film Council helps the British Film Industry by several different funds. <br />These are the Premiere Fund, New Cinema Fund, Prints & Advertising Fund and also Development Fund. <br />They also invested in 240 digital cinema screens across the UK.<br />
  3. 3. Who owns what in the British TV industry?<br />British Television is primarily made up of Four Companies, BBC, ITV, Channel 4 & Five.<br />BBC is the PBS-Funded Channel, owned by the United Kingdom and run by a board of governors.<br />ITV, Channel Four & Five are all Commercial Channels, funded on advertising.<br />
  4. 4. Mainstream & Independent Cinema<br />Mainstream Cinema: Mainstream films are usually made within the big six and have a much larger budget. <br />Independent Cinema: Independent films often have a smaller budget and are made by smaller companies not owned by the big six. <br />
  5. 5. Bollywood<br />Bollywood is the Hindi-Language Film Industry based in Mumbai<br />They tend to produce films with musical numbers included, and lots of dancing. <br />
  6. 6. Hollywood Studio System<br />The Six biggest Studios in Hollywood are<br />M-G-M Studios, Sony Pictures Studios, Paramount Studios, Warner Bros Studios, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios.<br />
  7. 7. The Dangers of the Big Six<br />The ownership of the television and film industry is widely debated due to the nature of the media industry.<br />If only six companies owned everything in media, that would mean that there are only six choices of opinions.<br />By applying the hypodermic needle theory, we could then suggest that those six media owners automatically have the power to put thoughts into people’s heads. One example could be the portrayal of someone like the President of America or the PM of the UK as being a bad leader, simply by choosing to select the information they show to display that image, and not a well-rounded view.<br />With the media, we only tend to see what they want us to see, especially if you’re a passive consumer, not an active one, so if only six people with similar opinions were putting out information it would in theory be easy to change people and the world. <br />
