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

Wentworth Entertainment Productions is our company that make low budget British romcoms aimed at the older end of the teenage market. Depending on the type of films you make depends on how you go about distributing your film. If you aim to make a big film such as a Hollywood blockbuster you would have to go the right way about it. For example presenting it in the main cinemas such as Vue and Odeon to make the most amount of money possible, you would have to go through distribution companies linked to the major studios. On the other hand if you have created an independent film it becomes hard to show the film worldwide/broadly due to the lack of budget you have because of this you would have to look for other alternatives to the large cinemas for example old/smaller cinemas, exhibitions, film festivals etc. It is becoming a lot easier to distribute films due to the internet.

You can upload anything to the internet and as our target audience are the technological era we know they will be spending a lot of their time on the internet looking for films so if the film is accessible to them they are sure to watch it. I think the internet is definitely the best way to get our film out there to our audience which fits in with our budget.

Our film obviously had a very small budget as it was made by us and we are only students so cant compete with the amount of money that the big film companies have. However if our film was being made in the real film world I think that it would be shown in the cinemas as it has the storyline qualities to make a good blockbuster film due to it being in a similar genre to films on the market already. As our film is similar to the popular TV series Skins I feel that a film would make a lot of money from producing something similar.
