Institutions and Audiences (G322 Section B) Practice question and answer

Institutions and Audiences

Be able to compare your British Case Study with an American One. 20th Century Fox's Avatar would be a good choice.
It's a very good idea to be able to discuss differences in institutional ownership, production, scale, budgets, genres, distribution, exhibition, use of technological convergence, synergies, etc. Of course, you would need, first, to research the ownership of a major US studio, i.e. 20th Century Fox and a film recently released by this studio.

(See Section 2 of the Exam - it begins on page 8 of the Answer Booklet. Remember to scroll down further to read the Examiner's comments on both parts of the Paper afterwards.)
This is an exam question from last year followed by a higher level answer. To practice, why not plan your own answer to this question and see you your plan measures up to the essay answer.

Discuss the ways in which media products are produced and distributed to audiences within a media area which you have studied.
