Description

Streaming: Movies, Media and Instant Access is distinctive and commercially viable because it examines the most crucial area in moving image studies today; the way that the image is captured, disseminated, and consumed by contemporary audiences, and the manner in which this process, or series of processes, is constantly being revised. Readers will gain from the book a better understanding of the enormous shift that this switch to digital will make in the habits of viewers, who can now see films on everything from cell phones to conventional theatre screens. Streaming: Movies, Media and Instant Access will chart the ways in which the Hollywood model of embracing digital production is spreading around the world, while still maintaining an almost monolithic grip on the international market. Streaming: Movies, Media and Instant Access will thus focus on Hollywood production, as the model that still informs international film production in both a genre and star-based model, but show how this model is now spreading throughout the planet. In addition, Streaming: Movies, Media and Instant Access will examine how the new digital world impacts how we access music, books, and also how digital culture, through surveillance devices and facial recognition systems, documents every facet of our everyday life.
