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

Evaluation Question 3:

To start with i thought i'd talk about the way 'The Inbetweeners' is produced, Bwark Productions is a London based comedy producer founded in 2004 by two former Channel 4 commissioning editors – Iain Morris and Damon Beesley. Bwark is best known in the UK for its hit E4 comedy series The Inbetweeners. From this i can tell these are the sort of producers that would attempt to distribute our film or at least know those who would, it isnt a hugely well known production comedy which is good as i need a company that would distribute my film and they wouldnt be a major film distributor but would focus mostly on the lad, teenage, comedy genre.

I believ that to find a distributor, they must be a British film distributor engaged by the genre of comedy, so that they will see this piece and immediately feel like it is the sort of film they want to share.
The film distibution company that distibuted 'The Inbetweeners' in my opinion would be perfect, although they are quite well known and a high class Brithish film distributor, i believ they are the best chance, they are 'Entertainment Film Distributors'.

Here is the first thing we see when we go onto the Entertainment Film Distributors website, it immediately shows off the latest and best selling films that the company have distributed recently.
For example, it is currntly showing the 'Lockout' trailer in this screenshot, and goes through over trailers such as 'Piranha 3DD' and 'Underworld', this shows to me that this company distributors a wide range of genres from comedy to horror.
As we got huge amounts of inspiration from 'The Inbetweeners Movie' and this was the distibution company they used, they are bound to enjoy the comedy of my coursework piece and would hopefully distribute it.
Doing research on the Entertainment Film Distributors i have found out that its first big success was with a film called Terror, in 1978.
This company has distributed a huge range of films including:
  • The Inbetweeners Movie
  • Ausin Powers
  • Rush Hour
  • Lord of the rings
  • Dawn of the dead
  • Final Destination
Other distributors i believe may distribute our film if it were complete or the closet we could get would be Warner Bros or Universal Pictures, although they are American big film distributors, i blieve they distribute films for the age group specified in our film such as films like 'Hangover' and 'Get him to the Greek', these may not be the greatest people to distribute us and there is always the possibility that they know of british independent distributors who could help us start out and eventually grow to make big screen films that will be blockbuster hits.
