What is the movie houses response goal? The movies houses would like to take advantage of the fact that YouTube and other social outlets have a massive following. If the movie houses can generate enough excitement by running ads along with trailers and clips of the movies then they turn a negative into a positive. Secondly, the movie houses would like to generate additional revenues from online distribution, but so far, that has been a tough nut to crack.
What can the movie industry learn from the music industry regarding online problems? Since the movie industry is still coping with millions of illegal downloads of music, it would seem that the music industry is still learning itself. That being said, the movie industry has probably taken the only approach that it can possibly take at this juncture and learned to play along with the illegal downloads as much as possible while….
Movie Industry in Downloading Movies
The idea of providing movies for download over the Internet would be an extremely practical acquisition. In fact, Walt Disney Corporation and Sony Pictures have entertained the idea of allowing movies to be streamed and downloaded via the Internet. oth of these companies see a potential market with PC users. (Stump) Multichannel News reports,
Currently, Hollywood has put most of its streaming efforts into movie trailers. Any major motion picture now released by Hollywood carries with it its own trailer available for streaming. Most new movies sport their own promotional Web sites that include not only trailers, but cast and crew interviews, and other behind-the-scenes footage. Interactive games and promotional sweepstakes with audio and video elements also are common, as are links to music and soundtracks related to the movies." (Stump)

here are different types of data, including time series and cross-sectional data. ime series data consists of measurements of the same variable over time. Marketers will often use time-series data, for example if a company is new and building its brand, it can take surveys on a monthly basis for its first few years to measure how many people are aware of its brand. his would be a dependent variable, and the company's marketing efforts the independent variable. Cross-sectional data is a set of data that may be in the same time, but examines different populations. he same company, in its marketing study, might look at brand recognition to gauge the effectiveness of its marketing in different populations -- such as different age cohorts, or in different countries. his information can be useful to the marketer in studying its reach to those different populations.

There are a number of different sources for this information. The project can only reasonably use films for which this information has been made public, but also can only be applied to films that have finished their theatrical run. The study will need to be cross-sectional in nature, the time period of films discussed must be similar, in order to discount the effects of inflation on the box office figures, which are reported in nominal (not real) terms. Thus, films from 2014 will be considered for this work. There were more than 30 films released in that year, so the samples will need to be chosen at random from a pool that includes all releases, both successful and unsuccessful.
A data set of thirty was gathered, using random number generation and statistics provided by an industry website, Box Office Mojo. The return at the box office is a key element of the ROI for a movie (along with foreign receipts, video sales, licensing and non-production costs). This is, however, a standard industry measure to look at the ROI specifically through the lens of production costs and domestic box office. A randomized selection of movies was used, where both sets of information was available. The results are in an Excel file in preparation for the regression analysis. Other variables that are relatively easy to acquire are the number of theaters on opening weekend and the total run in weeks. Other important variables, such as genre, or stars, are difficult to quantify, even with dummy variables and therefore will not be involved in the analysis.
It is believed that there is a relationship between the production cost and the box office, but this may be clouded by the fact that studios ensure wider releases for films they spent the most money on, so it is important to look at the width of the release as another contributing factor.
Not only does Nichols provide a good context for the many paradoxes that can confront film studies with his insightful and thoughtful introduction, but he also shows how sharing approaches and methods can help to stimulate a lot of the best writing regarding film. In addition he shows many of the common problems that are seen and deals with the contradictions that appear. Like the first volume of the anthology, this second volume also provides smaller introductions so that each essay and piece of information can be more easily understood. It also allows a reader to peruse the book and find the pertinent piece of information that he or she needs at that point in time, which can be very valuable, especially for a novice to the film industry trying to find information quickly. Having the smaller introductions before each piece also help to showcase each item within the context….
The film industry produces experience goods for consumer enjoyment and consumption, and substantively relies on consumer differentiation for the economic success of movies. Moviegoers appear to differentiate films primarily on the basis of genre, starring actors, exposure to promotion, recommendations from other moviegoers and film critics, and -- for the dedicated film buffs and connoisseurs -- directors, cinematographers, and even screenwriters associated with the film production (Albert 1998, De Vany 2004, Eliashberg and Shugan 1997, Hand 2002, Krider and Weinberg 1998, Nelson et al. 2001, avid 1999, Smith and Smith 1986, Wallace, Steigermann and Holbrook 1993). Access to information about films is related to the resources and networks that moviegoers enjoy, and on the attention that films garner, as expressed by the media and through social networks. Information about films is accessed by moviegoers from many sources: 1) The genre of the film; 2) the rating of the film….

The relationship between the two women is strengthened as the film advances and as they discover that they have more things in common than they initially thought. The two criminal-oriented individuals find that they have serious issues with their families and that something urgently needs to be done for them to solve their problems. The bond they form is best observed to the end of the motion picture, when Ray has second thoughts about leaving Lila and instead presents herself to the authorities, willing to be penalized for her actions. In spite of the fact that some viewers might consider the film's ending to be dull in comparison to the dramatic outcome they expected, the final is actually satisfying, as Ray's punishment is somewhat equivalent to the illegalities that she committed.

movie industry in America has been controlled by some of the monolithic companies which not only provided a place for making the movies, but also made the movies themselves and then distributed it throughout the entire country. These are movie companies and their entire image revolved around the number of participants of their films. People who wanted to see the movies being made had to go to the studios in order to see them. They made movies in a profitable manner for the sake of the studios, but placed the entire industry under their control and dominated over it. The discussion here is about some of those famous studios inclusive of that of names like Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Culver, RKO, Paramount Studios, Warner Bros, 20th Century Fox, Walt Disney Studios, Universal Studios, Raleigh Studio, Hollywood Center Studio, Sunset Gower Studio, Ren-Mar Studios, Charlie Chaplin Studios and now, Manhattan Beach….

Even if it successfully brings back to life a story forgotten by the public and distinguishes itself from today's typical films, Disturbia is no match for Rear indow.
It is not certain if Disturbia is homage or a remake to Rear indow, since the two movies are not exactly the same, but they are not very different either. hile some might consider Disturbia to be a rip-off to Rear indow (ilonsky 66), it is not the case here, since copying an idea as long as one does not copy its expression is not illegal. The reaction of the masses to Disturbia regarding the plagiarism involved in it is most probably owed to the film's success, since it is very probable for this condition to have been inexistent if the film were to make little to no money.
Caruso was right in bringing back the story present in Rear indow, considering that….

Holy Motors Movie Analysis
Holy Motors: An Analysis
Director Leos Carax has done it again. He has shocked the film industry with an abstract film focusing on the damaging power of our obsession with gazing into another's life. Voyeurism is a destructive force in the 2012 film Holy Motors, one which destroys the life of Oscar, the never-ending actor.
This intense French film was a major shocker in 2012. It is a very unique story told with incredible cinematic genius. Oscar, an actor, constantly drives around to different appointments, where he plays a number of odd roles. Sometimes he plays his roles in front o a large audience, while at other times they seem to be in front of only a few individuals or even no one at all. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to his roles, as he is random characters without much explanation of what is really going….
digital age include worlds that are highly imaginative (eg. Harry Potter films). Films are sometimes conceived in a literary form and then turned into a script and a film. Films since the 1920s and into the 21st century have used physical models and stage properties of some kind (eg. Metropolis, Blade Runner, 2001: A Space Odyssey and Harry Potter). In the digital age, visual effects are created by composite images and ongoing production techniques, practices and narratives. Discuss.
What this question primarily conveys is the feasibility associated with the growing trend of using digital techniques in filmmaking. The importance of digitalization, computer generated imagery and visual effects, has grown tremendously and that can be proven with the help of various relevant examples. In the essay, the technological value added by digitalization along with the advantages and disadvantages of digitalization have been discussed. Finally the future of digital filmmaking….
Even though they seem small, they are also ethical problems, and must be included in the definition when someone asks 'what is ethics' or 'is that ethical'? This is the issue that is being faced with the Amish community and the film Witness, because there is more than one actual issue at work there. This involves a whole community, some of whom may feel very differently about their Hollywood portrayal than others.
A lot of the issue with communities like the Amish and whether they are treated fairly or exploited is situations like this has to do with duty ethics, which was introduced like Immanuel Kant. Duty ethics deals with having the ability and understanding to do what is correct regardless of the consequences (Yirmiyahu, 1998). In other words, one needs to do one's duty regardless of what the other issues surrounding one may be. This is often difficult to….
An American Alex would be against classical music, with anarchists normally being associated with hard rock music. Moreover, he would find it perfectly normal to use drugs instead of drinking milk in a club that has dummies for tables. The reason for which a Hollywood producer would not have his psychotic character drinking milk is that he or she would unquestionably find such a scene to be sick, and, thus, not to be presented to a general public.
Most American movies presenting young people fighting for anarchy want to teach a lesson. They want people to understand that society is good and that it is not worth fighting it, since you only harm yourself in the process. In contrast, Kubrick shows that the system is bad and obsessed with maintaining control over people. After Alex is freed from prison, he can no longer be free, as his mind continues to be….
exception, most of Director Frank Capra's greatest movies take place during the depression, 1929-1941, or shortly after. His films are unique in that they are some of the first to display a faith in American opportunity and values in the context of institutional reform. Author Annalle ewitz aptly articulates Capra's contribution to films with the following quote:
The kind of 'socially conscious' movie we associate with Frank Capra's name does not tend to get made in or outside Hollywood at this point in history. Movies that critics and audiences of the 1990s dub 'socially conscious' do not offer portraits of American communities in the process of coming together; more often than not, American communities in contemporary popular movies are falling apart or are bound together by morally repugnant ideals and practices."

.....shift in the movie industry. Indeed, what used to be done exclusively or mainly in theaters and such is now something people do at home more and more. The emergence and advancement of streaming and video rentals of superior form have changed the movie theater industry, and mostly for the worst. There have been aberrations here and there. The recent Guardians of the Galaxy movie and its $333 million domestic haul was certainly an example and manifestation of this. Even so, the state of affairs in the industry can and should be looked at through the prism of Porter's Five Forces and that is precisely what shall be done as part of this case study. While there is still a niche for the traditional movie theater fare, the movie industry will have to evolve just like the movie rental industry did, and for very similar reasons.
Threat of New Entrants
ree of Life: New Age Seminal Film
Well into the second century of the fictionalized, narrative films, groundbreaking ideas materialized in seminal masterpieces of the film genre are not easy to come by. A list of these usually ends up with 2009, when Avatar was released. "he ree of Life" is an out of the ordinary film that exceeds the category of "pretentious" artsy, intellectual films that nobody understand, but many are willing to watch only to brag about having seen. he film cannot be qualified as "seminal" because it does not necessarily bring new techniques or ways to express in this art form on the table, but it is definitely representative of the film in this day and age.
During the last decade, more and more artistic films from the big budget realm have been noted to take more and more serious note, even those hat announce themselves "comedies." he film….
There is hardly a blockbuster or art film made during the last ten years that does not deal at some point in its plot with the struggle of the post-modern human to find its place in this universe or to make sense of it. This is in terms of the content. In terms of technical development, the achievements in the film realm during the last decade or so far and wide reaching that there seems to be harder and harder to come up with something truly "new." As Brad Pitt, the actor playing the father figure was saying in an interview: in technical terms one could say that the film makers were actually looking for what is usually considered a mistake in the film industry in order to "perfect" it. The "perfection of mistakes" as Pitt calls it is not necessarily entirely new, since Woody Allen already successfully dealt with this type of approach in his numerous films, but it is an innovative way of introducing it into a narrative film. Thus, the viewer is many times tempted to wonder if there is a fictional film or a documentary presented on the screen. The fact that images related to the origins of the universe, the earth and life on earth are introduced into it, ads to the innovative form of approach. Dialogues are sparse, but the director is brilliant in "perfecting" the mistakes of the acting. Nothing seems too be left untouched, even the smallest detail: a small child who is clearly incapable of "acting" is surprised at the perfect moment: his gaze is saying exactly what the scene is about.
The beauty of the images testifies for the artistic eye of the filmmaker. It feels like the filmmakers teemed up with some talented photographers as well. The results are pure art, but generous enough to leave the rest of the specific artistic expression enough space. The film inevitably reminds one of Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity," another recent film. Common themes like the origins of creation and life on earth as well as one's struggle to find a meaning in what might easily seem meaningless, picturesque images presented with the eye of a talented photographer, are features that make the two films seem related. They are also perfect examples of representative artworks in the film industry. Both films benefited of generous budgets, proportionately, which allowed their makers to experiment away, but the results are not necessarily groundbreaking for the art of film. The Tree of Life has the merit of having directly addressed all the "evils" of modern life, focusing on what was otherwise marginally touched and often left incomplete, leaving the viewer with the sense of having missed something important.
