Transnational Cinematography Studies by Coleman Lindsay Miyao Daisuke Schaefer Roberto Schaefer Roberto
Transnational Cinematography Studies introduces new perspectives to the discipline of film and media studies. First this volume focuses on a crucial yet largely unexplored area in film and studies: the substantial communication between critical studies of cinema and film production practices. This book will integrate theories and practices of cinematographic technology. Secondly Transnational Cinematography Studies expands the scope of film and studies into the arena of transnationalism. Cinema is now discussed in terms of globalization of audio-visual cultures with regard to such issues as Hollywood film studios' so-called 'runaway productions' (substantial filmmaking outside of the U.S. locations) and multi-national co-productions; Hollywood remakes of Asian Horror films or Hong-Kong martial arts films; and the growing significance of international film festivals. However this volume proposes that globalization is not in itself new in the history of cinema and that cinema has always been at the forefront of transnational culture form from the beginning of its history.
