Film production companies are generally able to generate revenues from their released productions on an ongoing basis. Even in times of economic recession, people are going to continue to want to see movies and films that are produced either through large studios or among small art-house styled film production companies. The gross margins generated from the sale of a finalized film can be substantial. However, many films do have issues in terms of finding an audience. As such, revenues that are generated from each different theatrical release are buried immensely. The barriers to entry for a new startup film production company are considered low. However, in order to reach a large audience a film production business must often work with a distributor in order to have the theatrical release seen by thousands if not millions of people. This is one of most difficult aspects of developing a new feature film. Most film production companies usually have a startup cost around $1 million. However, many enterprising filmmakers can produce a full-length feature film for far less money. With the advent of the Internet as well as the decline in the cost of film production equipment – many smart filmmakers have been able to release very popular films on very small budgets. This trend is expected continued expected to continue with the continued growth of streaming media online.

Most film production companies receive their initial capital from a private investment from a third-party. Most banks and financial institutions do not lend to new startup film businesses and less it specific for the acquisition of tangible equipment. If an entrepreneur is seeking an investor for their film production business than they are going to need a business plan. This business plan should include a profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. Additionally, there should be a substantial section that focuses on how the film production company will target to its audience. This should include demographics involving age, population, population size, automation density, and the specific demographic settle be targeted for each new theatrical release.

A very comprehensive film production company marketing plan is also required. This document should include information regarding how the film will be marketed, whether an advertising agency will be hired, and with the marketing budget will be. In many instances – when he film distributor requires the rights to distribute a film they will contribute a significant amount of money to the actual marketing of the film. This is important to note as many smaller films that get picked up by distributors go want to become successful because of an increase in their marketing budgets. Most film production companies use third-party marketing firms in order to properly target the audience for whom the film has been developed.

A film production company SWOT analysis focuses substantially on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are faced by these companies on an ongoing basis. As it relates the strengths, film production companies that produce content that people want to see usually go on to become highly profitable. As it relates to weaknesses, consumers have a number of choices as it relates to their entertainment budget. As such, any new film production faces tremendous competition not only from other movies being released but also from other forms of entertainment. For opportunities, many film production companies continue to release additional theatrical films once their initial one is completed. This is pretty much the only way that these companies grow. As it relates to threats – these companies face significant issues not only from competition but also from things such as video piracy as well. As such, most highly successful film production companies will frequently seek to release their films online through streaming services so that piracy is kept to a minimum.
