Description Ebook: Original publisher: Washington, DC: U.S. Dept. of Commerce, International Trade Administration,  OCLC Number: (OCoLC)46968760 Subject: Motion picture industry -- United States. Excerpt: ...Some of these workers are highly skilled artisans, others are manual laborers. But they all have one thing in common: they cannot move to Canada or Australia at the drop of a hat to perform jobs that are as routine to film production as those of skilled workers are to the production of steel or automobiles. These businesses are stationary, and their work is local. In some cases, national immigration and labor laws would prevent these workers from crossing borders even if they were otherwise willing and able to do so. One industry source estimates that 90 percent of the production budget for below-the-line expenses are spent on location. Below-the-line workers tend to own or be employed by small businesses, or work as independent contractors. One important feature of some of these small businesses is that below-the-line services often require heavy capital investment. For example, companies that provide such services as lighting, equipment rental, and special effects require hundreds of thousands of dollars of inventory and equipment because they must be able to provide on demand a specific piece of equipment or special effects machine. Just like any other business, these companies must be able to cover their expenses, which means working on at least a minimum number of productions. Yet, because of their small size, many of these below-the-line companies and their workers are particularly vulnerable to decreases in demand for their services.-10-

Description Ebook: This volume addresses issues revolving around the production of mediated cultural products across borders. More specifically, the authors consider cross-border cultural production in the film and television industries and how it affects and is affected by media centers, and, more recently, established production locations. The film and television industries have long been recognized as playing important economic, political and cultural roles. And while it could be argued that, historically, these forms of cultural production often have been international endeavors, the choice of production sites has become an especially contentious issue during the last few decades as global production has expanded. While some factions, notably from the US film and television industries, refer to this issue as "runaway production," this book takes a much broader look at the implications and consequences of this phenomenon. Basically, cross-border production involves the expansion of production away from traditional centers, whether to other countries or to other locations within the same country. Thus, this study covers a wide range of issues involving economic and political considerations, as well as creative and aesthetic decision-making.
