Quarantine. Remember to illustrate your article with images from the films and any products that have been produced to tie in with the films (synergies) 1. In two paragraphs, relate factual information about the version of Carrie produced in 1976 and the new version in 2013. Give details of the director, release date, distributor, budget and box office takings. Describe the plot and cast briefly 2. Give Kimberley Peirce’s reasons for remaking Carrie. Define the target audience for the film. 3. Explain how some of Kimberley Pierce’s reasons for remaking Carrie could be to do with trends, particularly amongst the film’s target audience 4. Consider the companies responsible for the making of both films. What is their relationship? Describe the relationship and state why this is a financial factor. Consider the products that tie in with the release of Carrie and give details of:  How synergy is a factor in the remake of the film  How the films soundtrack will appeal to the target audience (try to find if any artists have released tracks individually to coincide with the release) Kimberly Peirce decided she would make a remake of the film Carrie because there was a gap in the market for a good horror film. It also helped with the fact the intended target audience was teen boys and girls as this was also a gap in the market. When I came to making the remake of Carrie the budge of this film was a lot more than the original. The budget for the 1976 film was $1,800,000 whereas the 2013 remake had a budget of $30,000,000. This is something that you see a lot when it comes to remakes. Due to recent trends of other film genres doing remakes of old films Kimberley Pierce decided to do the same thing with this film. Screen Gems have bought the rights for Carrie. However they have worked with companies that made the original. This will help them make more money because they will be able the re- release the original. The synergy that they have in this film helped in the remake of it. This is because people went to go and watch the remake and then afterwards went out to buy the book and the original increasing their sales. The soundtrack in the 2013 film appeals to the target audience as they are bands/artists that have the same target audience. An example of this is the film contains tracks from Vampire Weekend and Haim.

Factors which influenced the remake of Carrie Financial factors Trends Genre and popularity Synergy (related products such as DVD’s/books/TShirts) Vertical integration (where a film company deals with the production, distribution and consumption of a film) In your magazine article you will need to comment upon all of the above P2 describe the relationship between films and their production contexts with some appropriate use of subject terminology [IE] M2 explain the relationship between films and their production contexts with reference to detailed illustrative examples and generally correct use of subject terminology D2 comprehensively explain the relationship between films and their production contexts with elucidated examples and consistently using subject terminology correctly Star Theory Why have producers of the Carrie remake chosen Chloe Grace Moretz? The producers of Carrie have chosen this actress to be the leading role because she is seen as popular to the target audience of this film. She is also well known to that demographic group for this film.
