Question 3:What kind ofmedia institution might distribute your media product and why?
Our Production Company The name of our production company is called F.A.M.E productions. We came up with this name because we used our last initials from our surnames and it was easier to keep the name simple for example the film company “Warner bros” was named this because the producers are four brothers. We decided that we would use this image of a £20 pound note to represent that our film company is British and the word fame is connoted with success, wealth and power. We chose a purple font and background because the colour purple is connoted with wealth and royalty.
From my research into production companies I learnt that the Production Logo has to stand out and be unique because it acts as a brand Label which can attract audiences because of its appeal. The film company Logos that helped our group gain inspiration from were:The lion connotes to the audience that The image of thethis film company is dominant- the mountain connotes that The use of “The torch“king” of films. this film company is on the Lady” represents a “highest peak” of creating female personification movies .The use of stars of America. around the company’s name
What Does a production company do? The role of a production company is to initiate film ideas for a movie. An example of this is using successful books and adapting them into a movie for example, Harry Potter but ideas can develop from anywhere newspaper, comic books, autobiographies ETC . The production company will then have to buy the rights to the film and have permission from the author/whoever owns the material and the publicists before creating the movie, Therefore the production company have to finance and have a budget for a film. They also have the role of finding actors/actresses through casting,editing,scriptwriting,screening movies. They are in charge of organising schedules such as deadlines for the release of a movie and in charge of the crew members. They are involved in the Pre- production, Production and Post production of a movie.
Whats a distributor? A film distributor is a company or individual responsible for releasing films to the public either theatrically or for home viewing (DVD, Video-on-demand, Download, TV programs ) ( through broadcast syndication-On-Demand. A distributor may do this directly (if the distributor owns the theatres or film distribution networks) or through theatrical exhibitors and other sub-distributors. Our film would be distributed by the BFI because they receive finance from the UK film council which receives funding from the National Lottery and British Tax to support young Film makers.
Funding for our Film Our movie will be funded by the UK film council. This is because they support upcoming British film makers and accept all genres of film ;they receive funding from the lottery to finance the film so they have the funding for specialist equipment such as the camera in which a talented film maker may not have the funding for independently.
Titles We looked at research on opening title sequences from movies particularly from SE7EN. The order in which the titles appeared in seven are : Production name Director Leading/main actor/s Film title Casting crew Score writers Costume designers Editor Production designer Director of photography Co-producers Co-executive producers Executive producer Producer Director
We learnt that the directors name gets repeated twice (the directors name is seen again at the ending) so in our opening title sequence we also reflected this: Directors name mentioned onceDirectors namerepeated twice itsalso the last title seenbefore the beginningof our thriller opening
The film that has been similarly institutionally released is The inbetweeners ,Kidulthood,Fishtank and Sket.
