He says that people in media will cause things to happen that will suit the audience, mostly in newspapers, news reports or radio. his 5 filters is an attempt at systematic bias meaning the media is changed to be bias against the audience, these will distort a story before its published. The first is ownership: The size and profit-seeking the media uses to create bias. The second, funding: Funding generated through advertising. Third is  sourcing: Relating to the sourcing of mass media news. Fourth is flak:  It may take the form of letters, telegrams, phone calls, petitions, law-suits, speeches and Bills as a negative response and the 5th and final filter is Anti'communism and fear: As manufacturing consent was written in the cold war, anti-ideologies exploit public fear and hatred of groups that pose a potential threat, either real, exaggerated or imagined.

Hot Fuzz EXPLOSION Poster!!!

Here is the Hot Fuzz explosion poster where we see action due to the fire but also comedy from the character of which Nick Frost plays as hes seen as a less knowing character leading to comedy!!!

My British Film: Hot Fuzz!!!

What category of film is it and why?
Hot Fuzz has an English director (Edgar Wright), English actors including Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Martin Freeman and also English writers therefore has English involvement. One of the three producers of Hot Fuzz is from New Zealand (Tim Bevan), but the other two are British. It is produced by both british and French sudios and therefore isnt totally British but has a fair amount of British involvement.

Find, analyse and explain how the film was marketed in terms of trailers, posters and billboards. When were they released and how?
From the Hot Fuzz trailer we see that it is meant to be an action comedy involving well known British actors and will attract the attention of teenagers to lovers of action and comedy, the sound is also of a humourous style and again will attract the specific audience aquired. From posters and billboards we see a raging fire behind the actors showing the action with a spark of comedy as nick frost is seen as a less knowing character giving off the comedy effect and will again attract the eye of those interested in this style of actors. The first two teaser trailers were released on 16 October, 2006. A panel was also held at the 2006 Comic-con in Sandiago, California.
