Which audience groups are under-represented in the figures?

• People who may be un represented in the figures may be children of a young age. This is because their parents would buy DVDs and take them to the cinema, so they may not be counted accurately.

Which Audience Groups are The Most Lucrative?

• In our group, we decided that young adults are probably the most lucrative. This is because at that age they still have a big social group and have more of a disposable income so they are likely to visit places like the cinema.

What Strategies should you use to promote your films?

• I think the best ways to advertise is social networking sites because most people these days have an account on at least one social network.

The importance of technology now and in the future• I think DVDs will go the same way as CDs and won’t be

as popular. So the best way to present films would be online.

• Seeing as most people have access to internet this would be the best way to distribute my film.
