WHAT KIND OF MEDIA INSTITUTION MIGHT DISTRIBUTE YOUR MEDIA PRODUCT AND WHY? QUESTION 3
DISTRIBUTION The action of sharing something out among a number a number of recipientsIn films this refers to the company that is responsible for selling the finished product to the public for example..
SMALL INSTITUTIONS From my research I understand that I would need to find both a large institution company and a large company.I understand as that we would need to find a low budget company to distribute our thriller. From my research I found a distribution company called ‘Optimum releasing’. I then researched the company and found out that they have released low budget thriller films before such as ‘Dead Mans Shoes’. The company’s headquarters are also based in the UK which means they have better knowledge of the UK film market and an understanding of how the film should be released in the UK economy e.g. through the cinema, Lovefilm, DVD and TV.
LARGE INSTITUTIONSI researched larger institutions which also have released thrillers before and found ‘Universal Studios’ have, and is one of the six main major movie studios. They have released films such as - The Unborn - The strangers - Drag me to Hell Another institution that I researched was ‘Warner Brothers’ they have produced the film webased outs around ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. I therefore feel this would be a good company to distribute our film as they made the Batman saga a success. Both of these companies are big budget film distributors so are high budget, this will mean they will have greater access to distribute the film through large cinema groups distributing DVD and TV on demand and maybe globally.
