Question 3: What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
Internet Outlets <ul><li>There are many ways in which we could promote and distribute our thriller film opening, the easiest way to do this would be online. </li></ul><ul><li>There are many outlets available for use by the public which draw large audiences to their videos. </li></ul><ul><li>These outlets include: YouTube, Facebook, Blogger, IMDB.com, Bebo, LiveJournal, Myspace, Twitter, etc. </li></ul>
Short Film Competitions <ul><li>Short film competitions would be a good way of getting our film noticed if we were to shoot and edit the complete film. </li></ul><ul><li>There are lots available to enter on the internet but there are also some at local cinemas like CinemaCity. </li></ul><ul><li>Here is a list of short film competitions we could enter of film into: Virgin Media Shorts, Indie Short Film Competition, Fujifilm Short, British Short Screenplay Competition, Pepsi Short Film Video Competition, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>As you can see three of the above are sponsored by large, well-known companies, Virgin Media, Fujifilm and Pepsi, this would provide a bigger audience for our film. </li></ul>
Is Our Film Innovative or Challenging? <ul><li>Our film is an original idea but it has been inspired by other thriller films, like The Third Man. This is common in the film industry, inter-textual references are used by directors to compliment other director’s films such as in Kill Bill 2, the music used over when Bride is being buried alive is the same as the shoot-out scene from The Good, The Bad, The Ugly. </li></ul><ul><li>Working Title Films or Warp Films might want to fund of film as it is an interesting plot and uses the mood of the moment to fill in the storyline. It also uses many thriller conventions that would draw audience who like thriller films. </li></ul><ul><li>If our film was to be produced it would most likely be shown at a cinema like CinemaCity. It could possibly be shown at cinemas such as Vue or Odeon as it is a mainstream thriller if it was to receive large amounts of funding. Another option would be it could go straight to DVD and be distributed that way. </li></ul>
