What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?By Tom MorranFilm Distributors (BIG 5)Distributors are there to help the film along the path of it being made to overcome problems it may face. For instance, financial problems.There are two different types of film distributor, The Majors, or the Big 5 (20th Century Fox, Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, RKO Pictures and Warner Brothers. They have made such movies as Sherlock Holmes, Transformers, Star Wars and Avatar.
Film Distributors (little 3)Other than the Big 5 you also have the Little 3. These distributors are, Universal Pictures, Columbia Pictures and United artists.These are responsible for Jurassic Park, Pineapple Express and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Film distributors (Indie)You also have independent or indie film distributors, these are often unknown until they make a really good film that gets positive reviews. These companies go for independent film makers, these are people that dont have big budgets and want the help from an indie distributor.
Distributing our filmI feel that our movie wouldnt belong with the big 5 or the little 3. I think it would be much more suited with an independent distributor like Film4 Productions, Lions Gate Films or Summit Entertainment.
