Comparing two british films (High budget/Low budget

  1. 1. HIGH BUDGET LOW BUDGET
  2. 2. HARRY POTTER MONSTERS 125m (estimated) 500K (estimated) Only 15,000 of that money was spent on filming equipment
  3. 3. HARRY POTTER MONSTERS Production companies: 3 Distributors: 57 Special effects: 13 Other companies: 55 Production companies: 1 Distributors: 48 Special effects: 1 Other companies: 13
  4. 4. HARRY POTTER Unlike most films with a huge budget the three main characters in the first Harry Potter film were not widely known at the time, this was because they were all young actors, this instantly changed once the film was released all over the world.
  5. 5. MONSTERS The actors who played the two main characters (Scoot McNairy & Whitney Able) both had a history of acting before this film, although neither of them starred in many big films and if they did they were far from main characters. Apparently almost all of the extras seen in the film were people who happened to be at the location, a lot of them did not give permission for the filming.
  6. 6. HARRY POTTER Warner Bros HeyDay Films 1492 Pictures All three of these production companies are massively successful and have each produced 25+ films. This really says something about the scale of the first Harry Potter film, it shows how much money was put into the film and how large they wanted/expected the series to become.
  7. 7. MONSTERS Vertigo Films Although this company has produced over 45 films, all of them had budgets under 1 million and all of them were British. The budgets of all of the films produced by this company combined adds up to less than the budget of the first Harry Potter film, this puts the difference between the two films in to perspective.
  8. 8. HARRY POTTER The first Harry Potter won multiple respected awards and was nominated for over 50 more. MONSTERS Monsters won 10 awards and was nominated for another 10 more.
  9. 9. HARRY POTTER The first Harry Potter film went straight to cinemas all over the world and was predominantly distributed by Warner Bros. After cinema release the film went on to be shown on television, being distributed by big companies like ABC.
  10. 10. MONSTERS Monsters also went straight into cinema across the world which is very impressive for a film with a low budget. A lot of the distribution across Europe was by Blue Sky Media. After cinema release the film went on to DVD and was also distributed in many countries.
  11. 11. HARRY POTTER MONSTERS - $317m (19 May 2002) - $974m to date, 20th highest grossing film of all time. - $4m (27 Nov 2010 - Over $230k on the opening weekend
