Evaluation Question 3

What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

Considering we made our film on a next to nothing budget, it would be absolutely ridiculous to think that a company such as Warner Bros. or Universal Studios, major companies in the media industry, would distribute our film.
A more realistic film company to distribute our film would be Working Title Films, although this company is still well beyond what we could expect.

To distribute our film, we would need to look for a company that takes projects on from young and new film makers, who have worked with a very low, if any budget at all. This is our first production, and therefore we need a company who is willing and used to dealing with people in our situation.

From looking on the internet, I think I have found an example of the sort of company that may distribute our film. Caravan Film is a low budget, Independent, British Company. On their homepage, they describe themselves as:

“Caravan Film is a London, UK based independent film production company, artistically helmed by award winning feature and documentary filmmakers Leon & David Flamholc. We're always looking for new people to work and collaborate with: producers, directors, writers and people with new ideas about film.”

From reading just that short passage, you can get the idea as to why this would be a useful company to distribute our film. They look for new people to become part of the industry and are a UK company, which helps because it means we wouldn’t have t travel abroad to get the film distributed. Therefore, even though we have a very small budget and are very unlikely to make big money when the film is so low profile, Caravan Film is the sort of company who may take this kind of project on. For these reasons, I think this would be a good place for us to start our film careers.
