what kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

  1. 1. What kind of media institution might distribute your media product?
  2. 2. Production Companies… A production company is directly responsible for all fundraising for the film.  They also handle budgeting, scheduling, scripting, casting, org anisation of staff, creating the production itself, post-production, distribution and marketing.  They are present from when the film is just an idea, all the way through to completion.  They are also responsible for safety whilst filming, as well any property that gets damaged.
  3. 3. Hot ice Productions  We chose “Hot Ice”, productions as our production company name. We thought it would be memorable as it is an individual name.  I created our logo in Photoshop CS6. It is a melting ice cubes, with flames coming off of it, to portray “Hot Ice”.
  4. 4. Distributors     Film distributors are a company or individual responsible for the marketing of the film They set the release date for the film, and the method which the film will be released by. I.e.. cinema/ DVD If the distributor happens to own the theatre, they may do this directly If not, they have to go through theatrical exhibitors.
  5. 5. Limited Distributor  Limited distributors may deal only with particular products.  This may be Blue Ray or DVD  Or, they may be able to act only in a particular country or market.
  6. 6. Theatrical distribution  If a distributor is working with a theatrical exhibitor, the distributor secures a written contract.  This contract will state the amount of gross ticket sales the exhibitor will be allowed to keep.  This is normally a percentage of the gross.  The distributor will collect the amount due, secures the distributors share of the proceeds, gives the exhibitor’s their portion and gives the remainder to the production company.
  7. 7. Distributor’s other jobs  Ensuring enough film prints are made to service all contracted exhibitors  Ensure physical delivery on opening day  Monitor exhibitors to ensure that the film is shown in the particular theatre with minimum number of seats and show times.  Responsible for physical production of film prints  Creation of posters, magazine advertisements, TV commercials and trailers  If they were handling a foreign film, they would be responsible for subtitling it.
  8. 8. Non-theatrical distribution  Term used mainly in the British film industry  Describes the distribution of feature films for screening to a gathered audience, but not in theatres where tickets are sold.  Has to be a closed audience (school, plane)  Individual admission charge is not allowed  The largest market for this is airlines  Followed by film societies  “FilmBank” is Britain’s largest
  9. 9. Funding  Our film, “Isn’t that illegal?”, would be funded by the BFI film fund…
  10. 10. BFI film fund The BFI film fund is the largest public film fund in the UK  They invest over £26 million pounds of lottery funds per year to support film development, production and distribution activity in the UK  The budget will be rising to £30 million by 2017
  11. 11. BFI Aim…  “to champion a breadth of bold and distinctive filmmaking across the UK; to nurture new talent; and go back to development, production and distribution of films that will enrich UK film culture and define the UK and its storytellers in the 21st century”
  12. 12. Applying for funding
  13. 13. Funding A lot of information is required on the BFI application form. For example:  Company name/ registration number  Fill title and producer name  Writer  Director  Where and when it is set  Shoot locations  Proposed running time
  14. 14. Funding If we were unsuccessful in gaining funding from the BFI, then there are certainly other ways in which to raise the funds.  The filmmaker, (us), would start out by pitching our film to an independent distributor
  15. 15. “Independent”  Independent specialises in the development, financing, production and distribution of independent feature films
  16. 16. Order of opening credits Distributor (Crystal Myth film)  Production company (Hot Ice productions)  Director  Actors  Title We deviated from this order slightly. The order goes distributor, production company, title, actors. This was because we felt the title, which was typed font, would work best in the beginning of the film, as it would match the typing. 
  17. 17. Angus, thongs and the perfect snogging  Angus, thongs and the perfect snogging is another British independent film directed by Gurinder Chadha.  “Isn’t that illegal?”, is institutionally similar to Angus, thongs and the perfect snogging, as they are both British independent, teen dramas. Both films have the same target audience, teenage girls, aged between
