those are not production companies, but
rather distribution companies. Do they
deserve their names along with the actual
producers, I'm just curious.
like Universal or Walt Disney are so huge
that they can take care of all the costs
themselves and get the returns on investment
as well. Then why are their movies also
have so many "XYZ films" "ABC
films" attached to.
Let's see If I can explain it a bit...
So you see this on the screen...
(not an actual intro)
is association with
Castle Rock Entertainment
Joe Blow Enterprises
A UNNAMED MOVIE
this case, Paramount is the primary production
company. Castle Rock and Joe Blow are
secondary production companies.
would handle the majority of the film.
Filming, mixing, sound recording, etc
The secondaries would handle a smaller
part such as licensing, distribution,
Paramount could foot the bill for the
whole thing but by breaking it up a bit
they can get more accomplished at the
same time instead of tying up thier own
staff to do it. And in some cases it may
be more cost efficient for the primary
production company to do so.
