Our production company
Our chosen production company is Film4 which is a British production company.The company is known for producing British films and is owned by Channel 4.
Film4 is also known for producing relatively small independent films such as "Submarine", "Frank" and "Attack the block".
The following slideshow outlines why Film4 would produce a film like ours, our production budget and a real life example.

After the film is produced and distributed the TV channel "Film4" could then air the film on its channel after a period of time. This gives the film an extended way to make revenue after the "hype" of the film is finished. Revenue can be primarily made from TV adverts in the breaks of the film.
Our distribution company
Our distribution company is StudioCanal. More specifically Studio Canal UK which is the the subsidiary of StudioCanal that is based in the UK. Since our film is based and produced in the UK it would only make sense to have the distribution based in the UK due to costs.
StudioCanal is known for distributing smaller independent films such as "Attack the block" and being involved in other independent films such as "The Bling Ring" and "That Awkward Moment". Thus StudioCanal would be suitable for our film in terms of films they have already produced.
StudioCanal also has a good reputation within the film industry being involved in larger films such as "The Hunger Games" and "Twilight". This could help the reputation of our film and could potentially attract a wider audience.
Below I have included a detailed slideshow I made about how our film might be marketed and distributed by our company.
