Steven Spielberg is now recognised as one of Hollywood's leading auteurs; a filmmaker who expresses his identity over a body of films. However, when he directed Jaws in 1075 he didn't have the expansive filmography that he now carries. The film does, though, contain several important elements that would he eventually recognised as part of Spielberg film. Jaws is attributed for introducing the concept of the Summer Blockbuster, a marketing device which significantly altered the way films are distributed. The film enjoyed a saturation run in approximately 500 cinemas simultaneously, along with a very intensive media advertising campaign. Unfortunately for Spielberg and his cast and crew, the film's commercial success wasn't an echo of an smooth running production, which saw the film double its' budget and triple its' shooting schedule. The shark was as much of a monster off-screen as it is in the fictional world. Several model sharks were constructed. But not that much.
