Unit 3: Research Techniques For The Creative Media Industries
Transcript of Unit 3: Research Techniques For The Creative Media Industries
Why carry out
Media products are often expensive and time-consuming to produce, and there is a lots of pressure to get them right. A major Hollywood film such as King Kong, which cost over $200 million to produce and a further $50 million to promote, needs to attract a large cinema audience to begin to recover these costs and also earn additional revenue from DVD, streaming & download sales.
Similarly the companies who have paid money to have their products & services advertised in a glossy lifestyle magazine or during a prime-time TV show expect and demand a quality product that will reach their desired audience.
Because of these pressures & demands, media companies put a lot of time & effort into thoroughly researching a product to ensure that it will attract the right audience & that this audience will react to it in the appropriate way.
They also plan the production process thoroughly, & make use of the latest technology & techniques to ensure that their product as the desired values to compete effectively in the market place.
