When marketing/showing your film to a distributor, it is important to show other films in your genre similar to your film in sales, budget, average number of screens(if possible) worldwide gross and weeks in theatres. These are projected amounts and you should assume your film will have the same budget and all other requisites. Just like last post, which was analyzing box office info, we have a movie and all it’s numerical figures from box office results. I have chosen a very hard genre, which is docudrama and not as popular as high concept film. This film called “Touching the Void” is about mountain climbing and an intense documentary. This film’s budget wqs about 3 million dollars and may be similar to your film’s budget. I have found similar movies to “Touching the Void” and compared them using sites such as Box Office Mojo.com, numbers.com and IMDBpro.com and our own proprietary system. Here is the results below. Try this with a sheet of paper or a new microsoft document in this same setup as below. Please reply to email@example.com or add a comment below for any questions.
