Examining the complex dynamics of convergence and divergence among the audio-visual media, the authors are realistic in their estimate of the future of the cinema's aesthetic identity, and robustly optimistic that the different social needs audiences bring to the public and domestic media will ensure their distinctiveness, as well as the necessary openness of cultural meaning and creative input" -- Blurb Notes: Includes bibliographical references, notes and index ISBN: 9053563121 Donation: Adrien Miles Contents: 1.

Newly revised and expanded to take the latest developments into account, Cinema in the Digital Age examines the fate of cinema in the wake of the digital revolution. Nicholas Rombes considers Festen (1998), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Timecode (2000), Russian Ark (2002), and The Ring (2002), among others. Haunted by their analogue pasts, these films are interested not in digital purity but rather in imperfection and mistakes-blurry or pixilated images, shaky camera work, and other elements that remind viewers of the human behind the camera.With a new introduction and new material, this updated edition takes a fresh look at the historical and contemporary state of digital cinema. It pays special attention to the ways in which nostalgia for the look and feel of analogue disrupts the aesthetics of the digital image, as well as how recent films such as The Social Network (2010) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)-both shot digitally-have disguised and erased their digital foundations. The book also explores new possibilities for writing about and theorizing film, such as randomization. Notes: Includes bibliographical references.

Ephemeral media : Transitory screen culture from television to YouTube / Paul Grainge
Houndsmill, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2011.
Call No: 77 EPH Author: Grainge, Paul, 1972 - Place: Houndsmill, Basingstoke, Hampshire ; New York Publisher: Palgrave Macmillan PubDate: 2011 PhysDes: viii, 236 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm. Subject: CONVERGENCE; INTERNET AND THE CINEMA; INTERNET AND TV; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; COMPUTERIZED ANIMATION AND SPECIAL EFFECTS; COMPUTERS AND THE CINEMA; YOUTUBE; ADVERTISING Summary: "From the television interstitials that appear between programmes to the brief clips and videos that proliferate on YouTube, contemporary screen culture is populated by short-forms that make claims for our attention. Ephemeral Media provides a unique focus on these fleeting but increasingly ubiquitous texts. Through case studies in television and web entertainment, this original book looks at the production of media at the edges, within the junctions, and that surround the output of networks and studios. Analyzing promos and idents, emergent forms of online TV and web drama, and the burgeoning world of worker- and user-generated content, this new collection also examines screen forms that circulate "between," "beyond" and "below" the TV programs and films traditionally privileged within screen studies. With essays by leading international scholars in television, film and new media studies, as well as interviews with key industry figures, Ephemeral Media explores the practices, strategies and textual forms helping producers (and viewers) negotiate a fast-paced mediascape. Examining dynamics of brevity and evanescence in the television and new media environment, Ephemeral Media provides a new perspective on the transitory, and transitional, nature of screen culture in the early 21st century"-- Blurb Notes: Formerly CIP.

Film and television after DVD / edited by James Bennett and Tom Brown
Call No: 701 FIL Author: Bennett, James; Brown, Tom Publisher: Routledge PubDate: 2009 PhysDes: viii, 201 p. : ill. ; 24 cm Subject: DIGITAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; DIGITAL PROJECTION; DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY; DVD, FILMS ON Summary: Brings together a group of internationally renowned scholars to provide the first focused academic inquiry into this important technology. The book picks up on key issues within contemporary media studies, making a particularly significant contribution to debates about convergence and interactivity in the digital media landscape. Essays consider DVD as a technology that exists outside the boundaries of new and old media, examining its place within longer histories of home film cultures and production practices of the film and television industries, whilst also critically evaluating what is genuinely new about digital media technologies. From DVDs to downloading, peer-to-peer networking and HD-DVD, this book speaks of the rapidly evolving digital mediascape. Ultimately, Film and Television After DVD is a book that considers the convergence of film, television and new media and their academic disciplines through the DVD as a distinct cultural object, pointing to persistent questions in the study of audiovisual culture that will remain intriguing long after the shelf-life of the DVD itself.

In a little over a decade, competing social media platforms, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat, have given rise to a new creative industry: social media entertainment. Operating at the intersection of the entertainment and interactivity, communication and content industries, social media entertainment creators have harnessed these platforms to generate new kinds of content separate from the century-long model of intellectual property control in the traditional entertainment industry.
Social media entertainment has expanded rapidly and the traditional entertainment industry has been forced to cede significant power and influence to content creators, their fans, and subscribers. Digital platforms have created a natural market for embedded advertising, changing the worlds of marketing and communication in their wake. Combined, these factors have produced new, radically shifting demands on the entertainment industry, posing new challenges for screen regimes, media scholars, industry professionals, content creators, and audiences alike.
Stuart Cunningham and David Craig chronicle the rise of social media entertainment and its impact on media consumption and production. A massive, industry-defining study with insight from over 100 industry insiders, Social Media Entertainment explores the latest transformations in the entertainment industry in this time of digital disruption." -- book blurb Notes: Includes bibliography, index, notes ISBN: 9781479846894 Contents: 1.

Subject: YOUTUBE; ONLINE VIDEO PROGRAMMING; SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE CINEMA; SPECTATORSHIP; INTERNET Summary: From YouTube's Head of Culture and Trends, a rousing and illuminating behind-the-scenes exploration of internet video's massive impact on our world. Whether your favorite YouTube video is a cat on a Roomba, Gangnam Style, the Bed Intruder song, an ASAPscience explainer, Rebecca Black's Friday, or the Evolution of Dance, Kevin Allocca's Videocracy reveals how these beloved videos and famous trends--and many more--came to be and why they mean more than you might think. YouTube is the biggest pool of cultural data since the beginning of recorded communication, with four hundred hours of video uploaded every minute. (It would take you more than sixty-five years just to watch to watch the vlogs, music videos, tutorials, and other content posted in a single day!) This activity reflects who we are, in all our glory and ignominy. As Allocca says, if aliens wanted to understand our planet, he'd give them Google. If they wanted to understand us, he'd give them YouTube. In Videocracy, Allocca lays bare what YouTube videos say about our society and how our actions online--watching, sharing, commenting on, and remixing the people and clips that captivate us--are changing the face of entertainment, advertising, politics, and more. Via YouTube, we are fueling social movements, enforcing human rights, and redefining art--a lot more than you'd expect from a bunch of viral clips.
