As well they learn the type of audience attends to each genre of film. All this for a simple reason, knowing if they are doing well or not with their movies and what they may do to improve it. Sounds logical, right?
Knowing if they are doing well or not with their movies they will know what to change to improve it. Sounds reasonable, right?
