indies and majors
There are two types of production companies, independent companies and major film companies. As we believe our film is targeted at quite a large audience we think that idealistically our film could be produced by a major company, as independent films are mostly aimed at smaller target audiences.

I believe that if it were possible for our film to be produced by a major company belonging to an even larger conglomerate, it would be more successful, as they have a much larger budget so can spend more money on the production, marketing, distribution and exhibition of our film. They can distribute our film on a number of platforms as they are part of large conglomerates e.g. being distributed through iTunes or Netlix.
