If you ever want to find yourself working in the film industry you should probably take a moment to learn from some of the greats in the business. Video production schools don’t aim to churn out arthouse directors and set workers, they want to churn out money makers. So in order to really appreciate the final incentives involved in making movies, let’s take a look at some of the biggest franchises of all time. Before you get your into commercial video production, take a look at this list.
Though Pixar technically dwarfs all of the other franchises on this list, it only gets included on a technicality. The Pixar-Disney Animations include the Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc, and Cars franchises — along with a few others. Pixar has been in the business of making high quality, heart warming, and cinematically sound animated films since the early ’90s and they are the best at what they do. With 14 films in their catalog, Pixar has already earned over $3.5 billion dollars in the United States alone. Not bad, eh?
