Evaluation question 3 - What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?

After researching movies similar to our opening sequence we found Lionsgate would be an appropriate company to distribute our film. This is because of the similarity between genre and conventions in many of the movies they produce.

For example, both 'House at the end of the Street' and 'The Cabin in the Woods' use similar low-key yet warm lighting as well as having similar secretive and mysterious themes. We have also used a similar setting to 'House at the end of the Street' as the main action is based in a house.

Lionsgate have also released a crime thriller called 'The Next Three Days', therefore making Lionsgate a suitable choice of distributor, as they have been involved in the distribution of a film of the same genre to our own film, 'Incontro'.

However, due to the low budget of our film we used unknown actors and directors, a local setting and limited special effects. This caused us to suggest that our film may be better suited to being distributed by a smaller independent distribution company, such as Film 4, who are a subsidiary of Channel 4. Film 4 are well known for distributing less well known films and especially British films.
