Conclusion From the research that I have gathered I have come to the conclusion to distribute with the film studio Lionsgate as from my results I know that they specialize in Horror and Thriller films witch suits my film the most also my favorite thriller Now You See Me was made their so I would love my film to be based on that for e.g. the twists used etc. by watching this film it inspired my chosen idea. Also this film studio may prioritize my film more that other studios like Paramount and Columbia also as they aren't as big as the others I will have more control but Lionsgate is the 6th most profitable film so will still have a massive audience.
