Production - Ali G in Da House

I will be looking at the film Ali G in Da House which is a film produced by working title films. This film was made in 2002 and is a comedy starring Sasha Baron Cohen. The film is about a Ali G who becomes an obstacle between the Deputy Prime Minister and his bid to get the Prime Minister out and get himself in. However he defies the DPM's expectations and will disgrace himself and is embraced by the nation as the voice of youth and 'realness'.

Working Title Films

I have chosen Working Title Films as my case study. the main people involved in this company are; Sarah Radclyff, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner. They were very successful in creating popular British-based films of international appeal. They have strong marketing links with America and European companies. The company is also commited to low budget films and new writers.
