Columbia pictures is a subsidiary to a large company called Sony

which are all forms of different kinds of media so using cross media
convenrgrance they own all sorts of different things like music and TV

Columbia pictures have produced many teen comedies. One of the most
popular would be Super bad. Super bad was released in 2007. It cost
20million to produced but then made $169,871,719. It was directed by
Greg Mottola. As Columbia pictures is just a subsidiary this gave them
the chance to advertise their product a lot more as they can use the
conglomerate that owns them to use lots of different advertisements.
Other films that they have produced are 21 jump street and the social
networking site. These were both very popular films.
To produce my product the company I think would be the best for this would
be the Universal Pictures. I decided this as they are a multi million pound
subsidiary that have a huge conglomerate too. This also gives me the
opportunity to advertise my product using lots of different
advertisements and media. They also have the experience in the biggest
teen comedy movies which is relevant to what I am producing, for
example they produced the American pie which was a huge teen comedy
and similar to what I am producing. I believe that the Universal pictures
would produce my product as they have done teen comedies before so
would be up for producing another one to reach their wide audience.
