Evaluation- What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why: Question 4&5.
Having looked onto youtube at other peoples media thrillers from different schools i have come across many successful ones, with amazingly outstanding number of hits. My film is a low budget student video which will be released on vimeo, embedded onto a blog, facebook and may find its way onto youtube.
Other students media thriller:
This thriller wasn't an opening it was a trailer, so a sort of similar task to our one, and i have choosen to comment on it because its interesting editing, sound and good use of locations. I particularly like the titles aswell, as they used flickering just like we did. It received (so far)20,242 hits which they should be so proud of! Here are some of the comments. Our thriller is an independent low budget production company, i.e: us. It will get cinematic screening and shared screenings amongst peers and maybe family. It'll get a DVD release of 200 copies.
Cinema we will view everyones thriller movies on the 5th of April, is below at 'the screen.' Other cinemas at which our thriller can be presented in:
I have envisioned a particular style of marketing for our thriller. As well as using social networking sites to promote it, websites and campaigns, TV adverts, leaflets and magazines would also help raise awarness of it. media which would promote it would be magazines such as sugar, shout, ok, grazia (mostly attracting females aswe said) but also premiere, film, empire, similarly TV adverts, adverts before highly rated youtube videos and adverts on the side of facebook all can boost ratings.
One of the main film magazines is Total Film, which advertises new films and stars, also information and advertising for the film. Most of the front covers like the one's shown below have a large image which shows the main characters in a film. They range from headshots to a longshot all of which make the film completly clear which is being advertised.They also like to cover some of the magazine title with the image this adds another dimesnsion to the page and it also look more professional, an example of this is in the Sherlock Holmes front page where he is looking directly into the camera as a figure of power, and on a shelf would gain eye contact and intrest the target audience. Also by the main characters being easily recognisable it will make people want to read a review and see what the film is like befire they watch it.
