    watching TV."-- The Kaiser Family Foundation

What do you think entertainment was like in the
early days?

    marketing today, we need to go back and see the
    beginnings of entertainment

    probably the LEAST promoted!

    they get to be famous or well-known?

  • Primitive
  • members used dances to calm the supernatural
    powers, get rid of evil spirits
  • European / Greek Theater
  • Started by the Ancient Greeks. Women were not
    allowed to perform. Early Roman actors were
    slaves owned by managers. Later actors were
    citizens and became famous and wealthy.
  • The Renaissance Theater
  • More worldly, plays were performed in inns,
    hotels, and halls, and slowly moved to theaters
    of their own.
  • 19th Century Theater
  • Due to the Industrial Revolution, many classes of
    people moved into the cities and theater began to
    change. New forms of theater were created for
    working people such as Vaudeville Burlesque The
    United States still depended on Europe for it's
    drama theater styles.
  • 20th Century Theater

    effects. People not only come to theaters for
    drama, but they come for music,

    Broadway shows
  • Manhattans district is on Broadway between 42nd
    Street and 59th Street
  • Has anyone heard of 42nd Street?
  • Rosie ODonnell is credited with increasing sales
    of Broadway tickets because of her endorsements

  • How do you report the history of music? starting
    with basic vocals and natural sounds in
    prehistoric days up through wide variety of
    styles and genres.

  • What are advantages of satellite TV versus cable
  • How much longer will broadcast channels be
    available free w/an antenna?

Entertainment Technology

  • How many use it to find info?
  • What about sports/entertainment info?
  • Do you think marketers know when YOU visit these
  • How, what info are they collecting?

    purposes originally)

    and internet use will be a combined service.
  • Each room of your home will be connected to your
    home server where you will be able to watch TV,
    surf the net, etc.

Profits and Distribution
  • Lesson 2

The Profit Makers-Movies
  • The Big Six movie studios 20th Century Fox,
    Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, NBC Universal,
    Warner Brothers Entertainment, Buena Vista Group.
  • Average cost to make a movie in 2004
  • 63,800,000!
  • Average cost to market a movie in 2004
  • 39,000,000!

Trailers and Previews
  • When waiting for a movie to start, marketers have
    a captive and target audience
  • These trailers or previews are CRITICAL to
    attracting an audience.

Large Studio Role
  • Paramount Pictures (Viacom, Inc.) and Twentieth
    Century Fox Film Corporation (News Corp.) were
    successful thanks to the blockbuster
  • (Titanic which sold more than 1.8 billion in
    tickets worldwide)
  • Large studios take on the role of financial
    manager in an effort to spread the economic risk
    of making a movie
  • Titanic first movie to earn more than 600
    million in North America
  • promoters never missed a promotional
    opportunity and succeeded at each
  • Titanic was still showing in 502 theaters the
    weekend prior to its video release
  • stores all over the country stayed open after
    midnight to accommodate customers who lined up to
    purchase the video when it was released at
    1201 a.m.

How can studios generate a profit besides ticket
sales in the United States? How might the movie
distribution system differ in countries other
than the U.S.?
Profit and Opportunity
  • Other Sources of Income
  • Profit from an American film depends largely on
    the popularity of that film overseas
  • income from merchandising, soundtracks,
    relationships to theme parks, global releases,
    and ticket sales in the U.S. and abroad
  • The Blair Witch Project grossed 36 million in
    ticket sales during its first three weeks in
  • Fox sold nearly 2 billion in movie tickets
    outside the U.S. (Titanic, Theres Something
    About Mary, The X Files)
  • International release of a movie can increase box
    office receipts by 50 to 100 percent
  • Most films generate less than 25 percent of their
    final income from domestic ticket sales alone
  • The 1.3 billion people in China is a promising
    new potential audience

    with the dollars they spend on the related toys
    and merchandise

Why would a movie be released directly to video
rather than a wide release (2000 theaters or
more) first?
So let's look at an example p. 194 13
  • A local band with five members has the following
  • Renting a studio 2400
  • Release song over web 5000
  • Duplication of CD 50,000 (20,000 copies)
  • Advertising 62,000
  • Fees (agent/songwriter) 10
  • If CD sells for 15 per copy, how many copies
    will have to be sold in order to clear 10,000
    for each member of the band?
