What is the overall trend in film consumption? Growth or Decline?

The two graphs above show the admission and ticket sales from 2001 – 2011. As you can see there isn’t a steady growth or decline in the graphs, but more of a growth – decline – growth pattern. 2002 showed the highest figure of admissions and most recently 2011 holds the third highest figure in the last decade.

Age of consumers from 1977-2011 in the UK. The chart shows that the most cinema goers are aged 15-24. The chart also shows that older people (35-54) are going to the cinema more.

Which audience groups are under-represented in the figures?

Groups under-represented in the figures I found we’re categorized in age, however they could be represented as gender, socio-economic class or ethnicity.

For example here is chart on what gender view what genres:

What role does technology play in the consumption of film today?

This table shows us some information on how the public consumed films in 2011 and from this we can tell that the vast majority watched films on TV which Is a new kind of technology that we have films at the touch of the button, so technology obviously plays a big part in the role of consumption. And as for today, technology is ever growing in the film industry for example the introduction of new 3D technology which almost all new releases are now being shown in.

CLASS CONSUMPTION (all of my class are aged 12-18)

As you can see from the results, 5/9 people go to the cinema and only about 2 times a month. I would say this is quite a minimal amount.

Seeing as most of my class do not watch watch films at the cinema, we can see from this graph that a majority of them use DVDs and Blu-ray's to watch films on their TVs.

From the graph we can see that most of my class find out about films by using other media however, cinema trailers are also as popular.

The most lucrative audience from both results were young adults aged 15-24 as they took up the majority of the percentage in the graphs.

Seeing as young adults are the most lucrative cinema goers and from my class results I found that a few of my class mates find out about films by trailers, I would probably use them as the main way to promote my film, seeing as the audience would see it when they go to the cinema before their film. Also seeing as the audience is young adults, I would use up to date media such as social networking sites, as these are very popular with that age group

The importance of technology is prominent seeing as from my findings I learnt that most people consume films by watching bluerays or DVDs which are a part of modern technology. Also as I stated before, many films today are being filmed and viewed in 3d which is very new technology. Finally, it will always be a trend to use new technology so I think it will take a big part in the future and media.
