10) Name three potential sources of income for movie studios. Why do you think a movie should be released directly into the home video market and not be shown in theaters? I think it would cost less to release a movie into the home video market. But renting a movie or buying one cost about the same. But overall it would cost less. 11) Some movie theaters now run ads for local businesses before a movie starts? Would you advertise this way if you owned a business? Why or why not? I know a lot of people arrive to the movie theater early to see previews, so thats any easy and effective way to advertise. 12) Parents in every generation are shocked by the music of their children. What might your parents find shocking about your favorite music? Prepare a one page promotional advertisement that will persuade your parents that your music has a value and make them want to buy the music. I think what my parents might find shocking about my music would be that it actually has a lot of depth and realness to it. They might think its a bunch of crap, but the lyrical content of it is amazing. They dont sing just about anything like some artist today do to make a profit, it comes from the heart.
Make Connections: Communication: Describe what you think are the most important changes taking place in the early twenty-first century in movie marketing. Cite at least two sources of information. The most important changes that are being made today is that they are spending more money trying to promote their movies to the right audience. The spending more money may throw people off but the movie industry, I think, is being real careful in choosing how to market their products. (movies) Marketing Math: A local band with 5 members has the following expenses: renting a recording studio for $2,400; release of a song over a web site for $5,000; duplication and packaging of a CD at $50,000 for 20,000 copies; advertising and distribution cost of $62,000; agent and songwriter fees of 10% of all gross sales. If the CD sales for $15 per copy, how many copies will need to be sold in order to earn $10,000 for each band member? 12,800
