  • Comment on: Brit films should be cheaper at cinemas, says Lionsgate UK CEO

    Pauline Burt's comment 18-Nov-2014 3:16 pm

    Price variation, including cheaper for brit indie films would be a terrific step forward, not least for encouraging a broader audience to attend, including those living in social-economic deprivation. For example, with ticket price variation tests within a community film offer where family tickets are 6.50, we've seen a loyal and repeat customer base grow, with people attending screenings 15-20 times a year, rather than the UK average of 2.7 Our cinema networks could once again appeal to the masses

  • Comment on: UK needs to serve changing audiences

    Pauline Burt's comment 26-Mar-2014 10:28 am

    Well said, Sir Puttnam. We're very interested to see the results for @TheMachinemovie - released last Friday in cinemas and via i-tunes (where it's reached no.2, behind The Hunger Games), quickly followed by DVD/BluRay March 31st. The producers are distributing - bringing their passion and commitment to bear for a burst of marketing activity. But they are crucially not alone - but rather, supported by freelance, knowledgeable distribution consultancy and marketing services. They're paying service fees; closer to their revenue streams and have a direct relationship with their fan-base. Parallel research commissioned, which we'll be happy to share in the coming months.

  • Comment on: Why the UK is missing out on co-production

    Pauline Burt's comment 12-Mar-2014 0:07 am

    It is not a uniform picture across the UK of course. more than 30% of productions coming out of Wales have been EU co-productions, for example, and further co-pros beyond EU. Needs must - but it's been a very productive set of relationships. Recent co-pros with Sweden, several with Ireland, Spain & many more in the pipeline. Would love to see rejoining of Eurimage and more proactive work in this area

    Well said Andrea. Chiamamanda's talk is inspirational, entertaining and thought provoking on the need for change. This is a multi-faceted need as you say, and one that needs to extend to would-be filmmakers from disadvantaged areas and backgrounds and to those with disabilities too.
