Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Contracting Out Hollywood addresses the American trend of runaway productionsthe growing practice of producing American films and television programs on foreign shores. Greg Elmer and Mike Gasher have gathered a group of contributors who seek to explain the phenomenon from historical, political, economic, and cultural perspectives, using case studies, challenges to contemporary screen, media, and globalization theories, and analyses of changing government politics toward cultural industries.

Seven contributions from media scholars explain the phenomenon from historical, political, economic, and cultural perspectives. Sample topics include the impact of digital technology on the relationship between Bollywood and Hollywood and the lack of cultural references in the industrial television industry in Toronto.
