Description

Studio-Distribution “Here’s my first born, take care of her!” In a straight sale, worldwide distribution rights are sold outright to the studio, and the success of your film is in interest of the studio. Studios have extensive resources with which they can finance a number of prints, and have guaranteed exhibition of their product. It is the quickest return for investors, and provides the movie the longest “legs” a term referring to how long a film lasts in theatres. Studio distributors may bill standard rates for their in-house distribution services, profiting off their P&A and other distribution expenses. These expenditures are then deducted from the gross profit of the film after the distributor takes its studio overhead charge and distribution fee. Therefore, the picture's profit is already diminished by the distributor's share, and then hit with expenses that make it hard for a film to earn a profit.
