The reason i note them is because it is good to see which companies take an interest in our genre.

Our production is in the psychological thriller genre, a sub genre of the thriller genre. During the research and planning stage of our production we came by different film companies that commonly distribute films from this genre such as 20th century fox which distributed films like Black Swan and Fight Club. When considering these distribution companies though we don't see them as a viable option due to the expense of our film being that it is an indie film also we would need a far more high profile cast and crew for them to take interest.

When considering a distribution company, we thought that companies that where for one thing local, so a UK company would make more sense, companies such as Working title and Warp X/warp films are examples of this, the other thing we considered was if they would distribute an indie film which from research, we found that they do for example Bunny and the Bull.
