USA; PRODUCTION COMPANIES & STUDIOS; GOVERNMENT AID; FOX STUDIOS AUSTRALIA; HOLLYWOOD Summary: Studio complexes are an important part of the way places around the world compete for and participate in international production. Many studios, in a range of locations, now have the size and sophistication to service large-budget feature film production. This comprehensive study of contemporary international studio considers the circumstances in which this rash of studio complex building and renovating has occurred – in places as diverse as Rome, London, Berlin, Prague, Vancouver, Toronto, Sydney, the Gold Coast and Melbourne. Central to the study is an understanding of studio complexes as cinema and media cities providing not only sound stages but a full range of production and post-production services in the one location. Cinema Cities, Media Cities is the first published analysis of this new international studio system, its origins, its business and its policy contexts.

USA Summary: "Knowing, measuring and understanding media audiences has become a multi-billion dollar business. But the convention that underpins that business, audience ratings, is in crisis. Rating the Audience is the first book to show why and how audience ratings research became a convention, an agreement, and the first to interrogate the ways that agreement is now under threat. Taking a historical approach, the book looks at the evolution of audience ratings and the survey industry. It goes on to analyse today's media environment, looking at the role of the internet and the the increased difficulties it presents for measuring audiences. The book covers all the major players and controversies, such as Facebook's privacy rulings and Google's alliance with Nielson. Offering the first real comparative study, Rating the Audience is critical reading for media students and professionals." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781849663410 Donation: Donated by Senses of Cinema, 2013 Contents: -- list of figures -- list of tables -- preface -- acknowledgments -- 1.Why the Ratings Are Important -- Introduction -- The Single Number -- Summary -- 2.The Convention -- `The Crossleys' - Archibald Crossley -- Arthur C.
