better way to provide it, than through music.

9. Comparison between an Independent Label
Company and a Major Label Company
As a major there is a lot more chance that the
distribution, marketing and talent is better and also
to a mass audience targeting a lot more people that
an Independent Label company.
On the other hand Independent companies are more
unique and creative which could potentially target a
very niche market but however be very popular
within this market. They also find new talent which
could potentially become very popular and make a
lot of money for the company.
10. Which one I would I prefer?
Although me and my group haven't made a final
decision on which song were doing yet I think that
going with a Major Label Company like Universal
Music Group would be more beneficial for us as it
would get more attention and more audience. I also
think that the style and image that major label
companies have is similar to the kind of music we are
looking at to produce our video to.
