Distribution companies specialise in getting the final product available to the consumers.
These companies find out what type of marketing that would suit the movie, how the film is going to be viewed, as well as setting a release date and other matters.
Our distribution company and why?
We chose 'transmission films' as they are a leading films distributer . Following their success from Lion, we feel this company will also produce the perfect marketing mix to make our psychological horror piece successful globally.
They are an Australian based company which was founded in 2008. They originally were partnered with paramount pictures, and have now become independent. This means they have the necessary experience to distribute our product to the market. They have worked with some of the most prestigious names in the independent and foreign market such as Pedro Almodóvar, David Lynch, Ken Loach and many more.
Three of their distributed films, The King’s Speech, Shame and Lion have won oscars. We also want our piece to prosper and triumph in our niche market bringing in lots of revenue to make a sequel or start another movie.
Although, they inject their movies into Australian and New Zealand market. They had success in foreign markets such as "made in America' which is an academy award winning film. We want to thrive as a debut movie and we believe this company will perfectly compliment us.
Overall, we thought transmission films was the best decision for us. Not only they are dedicated to distributing independent films with low budgets, we believe we can boost the momentum of success that transmission films has gained with our film complementing their arsenal with films such as Julieta and the last exorcism.
