“The media are on the move, in every conceivable way. As ‘new’ media arrive at our doorsteps and bedsides, this compelling volume asks us to think about mobile media in a different way, to consider the who, what, when, and where of how the media go about their business. In an era of footloose cultural production, Locating Migrating Media is an invaluable guide.”
—Toby Miller, author of Global Hollywood 2
Locating Migrating Media details the extent to which media productions, both televisual and cinematic, have sought out new and cheaper shot locations, creative staff, and financing around the world. The book contributes to debates about media globalization, focusing on the local impact of new sites of media production. The book's chapters also question the role that film and television industries and local and regional governments play in broader economic develop and tax incentive schemes.
