The Film Studio Summary

The Film Studio: Film Production in the Global Economy by Ben Goldsmith

The Film Studio sheds new light on the evolution of global film production, highlighting the role of film studios worldwide. The authors explore the contemporary international production environment, alleging that global competition is best understood as an unequal and unstable partnership between the "design interest" of footloose producers and the "location interest" of local actors. Ben Goldsmith and Tom O'Regan identify various types of film studios and investigate the consequences for Hollywood, international film production, and the studio locations.

The Film Studio Reviews

The book's strategy-positioning the studio at the centre of current international production-permits a very persuasive and useful analysis of where the industry (in the largest sense) is now and how it got here. -- R. J. Thompson, La Trobe University * Media International Australia *
The global film industry is evidently on the verge of a major sea-change as more and more shooting activities decentralize from traditional centers of production-above all Hollywood-to other locations, all over the world. Goldsmith and O'Regan provide us with the first systematic in-depth assessment of this trend and its implications for the future of the global landscape of film-making activities. -- Allen J. Scott, University of California, Los Angeles
