The film shaun of the dead was made as an entertainment product.

At our group meeting which was conducted on Wednesday the 14th of October we compared what we had found out about the people who had produced each other’s chosen media. These varied from Sports news broadcasters (Sky Sports News) to soaps (Eastenders) and also major american comedy (Family Guy) all of the mediums we chose however were produced by major companies. (Could this be a sign of  reluctance to look at independant media?) we were also surprised how much money was involved in running these major companies particually my example Vivendi SA.
