There is nothing that transports you away from the daily grind than grabbing a bucket of popcorn, a huge soft drink and sitting back to enjoy a blockbuster movie. Movie buffs can turn their passion for watching films into a rewarding spare-time job. Various programs sponsored by the movie industry and independent organizations are always looking for fans of film to help give opinions about the latest movies hitting the big screen.
Theses “get paid to watch movies” programs all differ slightly in the way they are administered, depending on the company a person registers with. Many programs require the participant to travel to a cinema at his or her convenience to screen a pre-determined movie and report findings through a paid survey. Participants will be asked questions on a variety of topics such as giving an opinion of the movie content, the film’s title, opinions on the movie trailers and advertisements, the other movie-watcher’s reactions, and more. Before the movie starts and after the movie ends, there will be a variety of administrative tasks to attend to such as filling out paper or online surveys to report your findings and sometimes even turning in a capacity count of how many people were in the screening room.
Other “get paid to watch movies” programs are done in the comfort and convenience of the participant’s home. Movies can either be downloaded over the Internet or are mailed to the home address in DVD format. After previewing the contents, similar type questions will be asked about the movie and ratings will be compiled on paid surveys that are sent back to the client company. Occasionally, there are projects invite you to watch a movie with a group of people which is followed with a moderated, focus-group like discussion about the film.
Joining a program that seeks consumer input on the latest movies is a great way to see all the latest, blockbuster hits. The film industry values the opinions of its target audiences submitted through online surveys and also hopes that advance screenings will help create a positive word-of-mouth buzz that will help bring in lots of paying movie-watchers once the film is released to the public. Compensation for these movie programs varies from company to company and project to project.
Often participants will be “paid” with free admission to see movies and complementary vouchers for concession stand treats — a great way to beat the exorbitant theater prices!
