Edgar Wright who also directed big hit Shaun of the Dead, and the cast of HotFuzz also contains big names, for example Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost, anotherbig name in the film is Bill Nighy. Because of there big budget films, Workingtitle are also liable to use A-list celebrities in there films such as, Matt Damon-who played the lead role in Working Title Film Green Zone also Jamie Foxx,and Robert Downey Jr who played roles in The Soloist. This list of big namecelebrities help Working Title to become a big name because if the public seesa popular actor that they like, advertising the film then it will make them wantto see the film. In the case of Warp films they do not have a very big budget,nor do they have the awareness of the public, but this does not mean theycannot be successful, this is England was named one of the best films producedin Britain. And its lead role was played by child and first time actor Thomasturgoose, who was found by a talent scout working on the film, the film woncritical acclaim which means that you do not need A-list celebrities and hugebudgets to make a successful film. This is England was directed by ShaneMeadows who, at first was a small time director, but was made famous by Thisis England, Warp films secure there funding from NESTA, NESTA is a lotteryfunded financer and they ask for apitch of a film, and then give the money toWarp Films to produce a film. This an be very limiting and is not suitable forlarge companies such as Working Title who need big budgets in order toproduce films that suit there genre. Editing for Working Title films requires alot of budget as they produce action/comedy films. The action films theymake require a lot of special affects, whereas a socially realistic film producedby Warp Films would not require a lot of special effects as they tend to focus,generally, on the Dramatic side, rather than being action packed, this is not tosay that the films do not contain action- they do, but just not as much asWorking Title films contain.In comparison to a Hollywood Giant such as Twentieth Century Fox whoproduced Avatar the budgets and the casts of Working Title Films and WarpFilms seem tiny, for example the average budget for a Working title film is inthe region of 10million, Warp films around 1-2million, Avatar cost 500milliondollars to create, which is a huge sum on of money. The majority of themoney was spent on the filming and Special effects which was all done in 3D.
