According to thefuturebuzz.com
the average age of a youtube uploader is 26.57 years old-
within the target audience of this movie This project has a genre similar to the successful TV shows Alias and Lost
Alias target ages 18-49 years old
This show stayed on TV for 5 years, which is a longer lifespan for TV
Lowest viewed season: 7.2 million viewers
Peak: 10.3 million viewers Ages 18-35 years old
Considering that this is a short film a narrower scope of ages would be more successful with the method of promotion
If this were to expand into a feature film the marketing scope would broaden
In the U.S. it will resonate with our “American Dream” mentality, the idea that an individual can succeed based on their own choices.
In fatalistic cultures like some parts of the Middle East and Asia it relates to the idea of things being predetermined.
What do you do when the solution is actually the problem?
There is a market for action/ science fiction films.
These films generate viewers and income by their genre appeal even before mass audiences review them.
Season premiere of Lost’s 6th season: 12.1 million viewers, 1 million more than their average for the 5th season
Lost has kept a substantial amount of viewers for its runtime.
Iron Man is the same genre, made $585,133,287. Their production budget was $140 million The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon
has a very similar plot-line about fate and
is scheduled to be released in July 2010 Not the same The Formulate is unique.
The Formulate has an advantage- It has the story of a feature length film within a short fifteen minute slot
The Formulate: focuses on one character’s decisions and later their relationship to the masses
The Adjustment Bureau: seems to focus mainly on a love story
The Formulate: two major plot twists at the end
The Adjustment Bureau: shows a rebellion against fate to fight for love
The Formulate: shows an inner conflict with weighty consequences that effect billions Distribution Plan DVD, internet, itunes, and TV- ABC
The Independent Film Channel (IFC) Target Market/ Audience The story picks up after Carrie learns there is a formula that is a part of a sinister plot to contaminate the world’s water supplies. After locating the factory building the movie begins with Carrie stealthily running through the factory floor to find the control room. As she is engrossed in her mission she is caught off guard as one of the chief engineers, Alan Drescher, whom she has a grim history with is suddenly behind her. Carrie instinctively turns with gun pointed and becomes part of Alan’s psychological head games. Spoiler Alert: Alan reveals that Carrie has been part of an experiment and controlled for an even more evil plan. He reveals that all of the circumstances in Carrie’s life were controlled to lead her to disable the formula distribution, making her the only success in the evil experimental program. Although Carrie would save the world, who knows what other plans Alan and his cohorts would have in store for her future? Alan slumps over shortly after and has no pulse. Carrie runs out of time and angrily makes the decision to rebel against the control she has been under all of her life. After the formula is distributed she sinks down in her chair, realizing that her decision cost many innocent people their lives. There is a close up of Alan’s face from floor level, and he is smiling, revealing that Carrie did exactly what he wanted her to do. Impact Statement This movie is for entertainment. It's a thinker
