What kind of media institution might distribute your film and why?
As a group we decided that our thriller would be inbetween a hollywood blockbuster and a British independent movie. Because of this we decided that a good production company would be either Lionsgate or Working Title.
Out of the two, we decided that workting title would probably be best suited as they're a British production company whom are owned by Universal studios which would therefor provide financial help and publicity.
Working title have also produced thriller films such as: Gone, Trash, Closed Curcuit and many more including, Everest which is scheduled to be released later this year. These are all quite independent movies like ours, so we thought this would be perfect for our thriller as it would get the right recognition than it being a mainstream film and being overlooked by more popular films.
How were the films financed?
For financial issues we would obviously have Universal as they own Working title. However we also considered having a few charity fundings, Funding from the BFI as our film would classify for it. Another place we thought we could get funding from was companies that raise awareness about rape and young women being vunerable as our film is about to young girls being kidnapped.
