Walt Disney Pictures is an American film production company, owned by The Walt
Disney Company. Founded in 1950 as Walt Disney Productions, the division is
based at the Walt Disney Studios and is the main producer of live-action feature
films. It took on its current name in 1983. Walt Disney Pictures is classified as one
of Hollywood's "Big Six" film studios. Their first film was in 1928with Mickey
Mouse in steam boat Willie. List of famous films:

Paramount Pictures- This company is a house hold name, because I don’t think anyone
has not seen a movie produced by them. Also they have produced massive films that
everyone would have seen, for example Titanic, Forrest Gump, Transformers and Shrek. As
you can tell from just this list there is something for everyone which means more people
will have seen the logo. Lastly they have produced films that have done very well with
awards which suggests that even more people will see them, and as a result the company
is well known.
Walt Disney Pictures- This company is another house hold name because it has been
around for so long that every generation will have seen a movie by them. The only
problem with this that they mainly make children’s, but people say “your never to old for
a Disney movie” which suggest that the films that they make are just so entertaining that
everyone can watch them. Also everyone has grown up with these movie’s which suggest
that the movies could mean more to them because it reminds them of their child hood.
This is what makes the company so well known.
The obvious difference is the budget it’s self. By having a bigger budget, this means that the
money will be spent on well known/ award winning/ professional team for a movie. For
example from Pirates of the Caribbean the actors in the film are well know eg. Johnny Depp
and Kira Knightley. To have actors like this you have to pay a lot of money to get them to do
it. Also the production and quality will be better because they can have better equipment.
While the Low budget they aren’t as well known. For example I don’t the audience knows
who katie featherston is.
But in terms of institutions normally if a film is a low budget the audience wouldn’t have
heard of the them, because they aren’t as big as the others. Also the film wouldn’t of gone
into the cinema for example Another Earth, nobody that I have asked has seen or heard of
this film and the budget of the movie was $150,000. However Paranormal activity is an
unusual one only because the institution that produced the film, made the film popular.
Normally a High budget film will put their film into the cinema’s because they can pay for it
while the Low budget can’t afford it because they don’t have enough money.
Both of the institutions that I have chosen both make a lot of
Both institutions realise films regularly.
Both make entertaining movies
Both suit their audiences
All these films were very successful
because, I think that they are all one of a
kind I have never another movie just like
them. Also the institutions can pay for it
to be in the cinema and have adverts on
TV which helps promote their movie.
Walt Disney Pictures:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
These films were all very successful as well
because of the same reasons as Paramount
Pictures, but also because I think that they
have aimed at their target audience really well.
Also because each generation have seen these
that they make the next generation watch it
because it’s so good then they all fall in love
with the movie again.
Paramount Pictures usually produce any type of genre. For example Shrek is an animation
for children, Iron man an action, Titanic romance/ disaster film and Forrest Gump a drama.
This institution is pretty much for anyone.
Walt Disney Pictures is mainly children’s movies. For example Toy story which is children’s
and a animation, Cinderella which is also a children’s and an animation, and Holes which is
a children’s movie.
Finding out what genre institutions produce is important when considering who you would
like to produce your movie because if you are making a children’s film then the institution
which would be suitable for you would be Walt Disney Pictures, because that’s what
normally what movie they like to produce. However you wouldn’t go to Blumhouse
productions because all the films that they make are scary films, so your children’s film
wouldn’t do very well because you picked the wrong insitution.
Paramount Pictures audience is basically anyone because they produce so many
different types of genre which will appeal to different types of audience. This is
reflected through their film choice because they pick different types of films which are
different genres and different audience guide.
Walt Disney Pictures audience that they appeal to is children because of the movies
they make. For example they may make film with different genres but most of them will
be a PG so their target audience can watch it. The films that they produce do not have
any strong language so children can watch it. They don’t have much gore in their films
so children can watch it. This is defiantly reflected through their film choice because
most of them are animation and the same audience guide.
Overall I think that Paramount Pictures is better because it has been going for longer,
which shows dedication and a lot of work to keep it going for that 100 years +. It
makes different kinds of movies for everyone which means they produce movies that
everyone can watch not just for one type of audience. This shows that they are a lot
more versatile because they can do more than one things.
