Product Description

Review

A pioneering and timely volume emphasizing historical and transnational perspectives, Beyond the Bottom Line brings the myths and realities of the producers many roles into clear focus. Offering well developed case studies and conceptual clarification, the contributors deepen and extend the ongoing conversation about practitioners agency in thoughtful and productive ways. --Mette Hjort, Chair Professor of Visual Studies, Lingnan University, Hong Kong

This will prove an invaluable book, both to students and to those wishing to learn more about the film and media industries. Its spread is broad, making comparisons between different countries, practices and genres, and yet its intellectual focus is precise and well-conceived. The work of the producer has received scant attention in the past, and this important book rectifies that, and in a thorough, sophisticated and approachable way. Not to be missed. --Sue Harper, Emeritus Professor of Film History, University of Portsmouth, UK

This long-overdue scholarly collection represents an important step forward in the study of the role of the movie producer. Beyond the Bottom Line is a welcome addition to the burgeoning literature of production and industry studies. Its broad range of critical case studies will be a valuable resource to researchers and students alike. --Julian Hoxter, Screenwriting Coordinator, San Francisco State University, USA, and editor of Screenwriting
