EVALUATION ACTIVITY 3: What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

Pictured above is our Production Logo when deciding on the name of the production we wanted it to reflect on our selves and be a bit different from other production company names. We all came up with different ideas and designs and showed them to each other to see which we thought was best. In the end we decided on BJUICY productions as the "bjuicy" part incorporated all of our initials and felt quite individual. After we had decided on the name, Yasmin  created the logo on Adobe. She used flowers to make it more feminine and made the background black and font white so it would really stand out but stay professional looking. 

A production company is solely responsible for making the actual media being distributed. In doing so the production company will often fund the project so will have say on who directs and which actors are hired.  Many production companies will be owned by well known studios such as Disney, if this is the case the studio can choose the actors and directors and often certain actors, directors and photographers will have contracts with certain studios which means they are more likely to be involved with films made by the studios production company.

After looking at certain films and which companies produced them I thought which one would be best suited for our film. I thought that Disney would be a good choice as they are very successful, a well known established company in the industry and are the most recognisable media franchise . As well as the other factors Disney have produced such films as confessions of a teenage drama queen, Freaky Friday, Enchanted and ice princess they also have films contracted for 2013. Disney also distribute films too so would be great for our film. However i'm not sure whether Disney would be totally suitable for our film as many people that watch Disney are a lot younger than who we are aiming at. Another production company great for our film would be paramount pictures as they have produced such films as mean girls, napoleon dynamite, stardust and the heartbreak kid. Paramount pictures seem to have a better target audience and suit our film, paramount pictures are also very successful and have many films in the pipeline. Paramount also distribute and are very well known around the world for producing great films and have also been around longer. I decided to go with a mainstream producer rather than an indie company like Miramax  who manly produce independent or foreign films.

We decided to have the production logo appear first as many films do this to introduce the companies. We then decided to have the font the same throughout the opening to make it flow better and seem more professional. We decided for the job roles to appear first then the actors name to appear when their character is on screen I feel that this shows the audience who the character is so they know right at the beginning.
