    1. Key Problems in the British Film Industry

    2. Objective • Understand the difficulties faced by producers in the British Film Industry

    3. The British Film Industry

    4. Timeline – 1900-1940s

    5. Timeline – 1900-1940s

    6. The 1990s and Cool Britannia

    7. Why is financing a problem? • Government subsidies (withdrawn) • Dependent on American film industry (fickle) • Track record (disproportionate number of ‘failures’) • Complicated process • Lack of a national talent academy (future success is chance)

    8. Why is production a problem? • Studios owned by Hollywood or second-rate • Brain drain to Hollywood • British star prices? • Companies are not vertically-integrated (expensive) • Companies have been purchased by American conglomerates (creative freedom)

    9. Why is distribution a problem? • Cinema chains (Odeon, Vue, Cineworld) • Centrally-controlled • Few arthouse cinemas; lack of funding • Short lifespan of films • Relatively expensive costs of distribution due to non-vertically-integrated companies

    10. ‘Commercial Viability’ • Government unprepared to invest, but wants the success • http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16495095 • Copycat – Kidulthood is a success, so 20 copies are made (distilling the brand)
