Evaluation question 3 media

  1. 1. Evaluation Question 3: What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
  2. 2. Why Imperial Productions? <ul><li>We chose the name Imperial Productions because when we did our research on film companies, we picked out 4 big film companies like “Touchstone Pictures” and “Universal.” The word touchstone means a test of quality and universal means to be connected with people around the world so we chose to go down the same route of these two companies by thinking of a name with a meaning we want to represent in our productions because the meaning of imperial is to have a commanding quality, manner or aspect. </li></ul>
  3. 3. What does a production company do? <ul><li>Watch the clip on this website to understand what a production company does: </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.ehow.com/video_4872070_production-company-do_.html </li></ul>
  4. 4. Film Distributors <ul><li>A film distributor is a company or individual responsible for releasing films to the public either theatrically or for home viewing. </li></ul><ul><li>What a Distribution Company does: </li></ul><ul><li>After master print of finished film is delivered to local distributor the distributor determines the release strategy and release date. </li></ul><ul><li>Distributor presents the film to exhibitors and negotiates bilateral agreements to have the film shown in cinemas. </li></ul><ul><li>Distributor’s marketing campaign creates a “want to se” buzz among the target audience and launches the film. </li></ul><ul><li>Prints are delivered a few days before the opening. </li></ul><ul><li>Film’s run extends any number of weeks subject to demand. </li></ul><ul><li>This website shows the list of distrbution companies in some countries: </li></ul><ul><li>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_film_distributors_by_country#United_States </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that because our film would be released from an unknown production company that we would use a small UK production company to save on costs. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Film Investment <ul><li>Film finance is an aspect of film production that occurs before pre-production, and is concerned with determining the potential value of a proposed film. </li></ul><ul><li>This website gives you information about different sources of film funding: </li></ul><ul><li>http:// filmfundingsources.com / </li></ul><ul><li>For a movie like ours I believe that to get investment we would have to take our package to a film festival such as the London Film Festival where the people with ideas meet up with the people with money, in the hope that a deal may be struck. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Movie Titles <ul><li>People are named in movie titles because of their importance to the creation of a film e.g. the director, writer and Star actors etc and other people who are not as important to the film but still play a part are named in the credits. </li></ul><ul><li>We tried to use this in our film and although we could have included more titles we decided to just put the jobs that we thought were most important. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Films that are similar “institutionally” <ul><li>I believe our film would be released in a similar way to such films as “scarface” and “Carlito’s Way” because both of these films are of the same genre and style. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Points to consider <ul><li>Would this be something that could be produced by a major Hollywood Studio? </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that this film could be produced by a major film studio as right now there are no existing products which are similar and in the past films of similar a similar genre to our film have gone on to be big successes. </li></ul><ul><li>Would it be a TV film, or an art house film? </li></ul><ul><li>I believe it would be a TV film because we want to be aiming this at a mass audience rather than a specific group of people. </li></ul><ul><li>Would it be an internet release only? </li></ul><ul><li>No, I believe that our film would be exhibited in cinemas around the world. </li></ul><ul><li>Where would it be released? </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that our film would be released in the cinema to audiences around the world. </li></ul><ul><li>How would it be advertised and marketed? </li></ul><ul><li>Our film would be advertised on television, we would have posters on bus shelters and buses, links to our film on big websites etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Are there opportunities for merchandising? </li></ul><ul><li>I believe that there are opportunities for marketing but as our film is targeting a teenage to adult audience we would be making posters and clothes that are incorporated with our film rather than making toys and games which are more targeted for children </li></ul>
