Monday Monday…

kids-club-phoenix-bbfcI’ll not be there today so here’s what I’d like you to do:

  1. Read through THIS POST and then research what the following organisations do/have responsibility for:
    1. BBFC
    2. ASA
    3. OFCOM
  2. Start researching audience/genre/box office preferences and trends using statistics culled from the BFI Stats Pages. Things to find out would be along the lines of:
    1. Which is the most popular genre of film? (Is there more than one?)
    2. Is there a link between age and box office take?
    3. How could you use historic data to focus your own product?
  3. Start looking into audience research in more depth. There are some resources in THIS POST that should help you.

As you will have realised, this is about developing knowledge of institutional constraints and is also directly applicable to your product/assignments…

I’ll be in tomorrow and will be getting you set up for your assignments. Take care, stay warm, and don’t waste your time! Lots to do. 🙂

PS: Some people have already started their research so you can use them to help you, and ask to use the library/PCs if you can’t use your phone, etc.

PPS: Don’t forget this!

So, time to get busy. The links you will need to chase up are as follows:

And that’s plenty to be going on with!
