Print- Web- App- Tumblr- The Tumblr allows the publishers to interact with audiences often allowing consumers to submit their own versions of LVL covers. 3. Industry and institutional publication # Sight and sound Published by the British Film Institute The BFI is a charitable organisation established by the Royal Charter to to promote British and film and TV.

Distributed nationwide to enable large revenue stream. Subscription heavily advertised online and with offers and promotions.

Model of Business is aimed to maximize both sales and advertising revenue. Little White Lies Bi-monthly- sold in selected stores and relevant places (cinema, clothes stores) app is not as interactive. Suggest that the physical magazine is the most important of the LWL brand. The creativity and design of the magazine is more than exclusive. The purpose is to drive business to the creative agency part of the business. Sign and Sound & BFI Sight and Sound acts as the critical voice of the BFI creates a record of credits and synopsis of every film release in the UK cinemas act as a record. The purpose of the magazine is not to make a profit however it is there to reflect and shape contemporary views of cinema. Distribution is mainly subscription based and in selection news vendors.
