"The Persistence of Whiteness" investigates the representation and narration of race in contemporary Hollywood cinema, centring on ideologies of class, ethnicity, gender, nation and sexuality as well as the growth of the business of filmmaking. Focusing on representations of Black, Asian, Jewish, Latina/o and Native Americans identities, this collection also shows how whiteness is a fact everywhere in contemporary Hollywood cinema, crossing audiences, authors, genres, studios and styles. Bringing together essays from respected film scholars, the collection covers a wide range of important films, including "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", "The Color Purple", "Star Wars" and "The Lord of the Rings". Essays also consider genres from the western to blaxploitation and new black cinema; provocative filmmakers such as "Melvin Van Peebles" and "Steven Spielberg" and stars including Whoopi Goldberg and Jennifer Lopez.

Hollywood is facing unprecedented challenges - and is changing rapidly and radically as a result. In this major new study of the contemporary film industry, leading film historian Tino Balio explores the impact of the Internet, declining DVD sales and changing consumer spending habits on the way Hollywood conducts its business. Today, the major studios play an insignificant role in the bottom lines of their conglomerate parents and have fled to safety, relying on big-budget tentpoles, franchises and family films to reach their target audiences. Comprehensive, compelling and filled with engaging case studies (TimeWarner, DreamWorks SKG, Spider Man, The Lord of the Rings, IMAX, Netflix, Miramax, Sony Pictures Classics, Lionsgate and Sundance), Hollywood in the New Millennium is a must-read for all students of film studies, cinema studies, media studies, communication studies, and radio and television.

Hollywood continues to reign supreme; from award-winning dramas to multimillion-dollar, special effects-laden blockbusters, Tinseltown produces the films that audiences around the world go to the cinema to see. While the film industry has changed dramatically over the years-stars have come and gone, studios have risen and fallen, new technologies have emerged to challenge directors and entice audiences-Hollywood remains the center of global media entertainment. This second volume of Directory of World Cinema: American Hollywood builds on its predecessor by exploring how the industry has evolved and expanded throughout its history. With new essays that discuss the importance of genre, adaptation, locations, and technology in the production of film, this collection explores how Hollywood has looked to create, innovate, borrow, and adapt new methods of filmmaking to capture the audience's imagination. Touching on classic films such as North by Northwest and Dirty Harry alongside CGI blockbusters like The Lord of the Rings and The Dark Knight, as well as comedies such as When Harry Met Sally and Jerry Maguire, this landmark book charts the changing tastes of cinemagoers and the diverse range of offerings from Hollywood. User-friendly and concise, yet dense and wide-ranging, Directory of World Cinema: American Hollywood 2 demonstrates that Hollywood, despite challenges from independent filmmakers and foreign directors, remains the undisputed king of moviemaking in the twenty-first century.

Hollywood moviemaking is one of the constants of American life, but how much has it changed since the glory days of the big studios? David Bordwell argues that the principles of visual storytelling created in the studio era are alive and well, even in today's bloated blockbusters. American filmmakers have created a durable tradition - one that we should not be ashamed to call artistic, and one that survives in both mainstream entertainment and niche-marketed indie cinema. Bordwell traces the continuity of this tradition in a wide array of films made since 1960, from romantic comedies like "Jerry Maguire" and "Love Actually" to more imposing efforts like "A Beautiful Mind".He also draws upon testimony from writers, directors, and editors who are acutely conscious of employing proven principles of plot and visual style. Within the limits of the "classical" approach, innovation can flourish. Bordwell examines how imaginative filmmakers have pushed the premises of the system in films such as "JFK", "Memento", and "Magnolia". He discusses generational, technological, and economic factors leading to stability and change in Hollywood cinema and includes close analyses of selected shots and sequences. As it ranges across four decades, examining classics like "American Graffiti" and "The Godfather" as well as recent success like "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers", this book provides a vivid and engaging interpretation of how Hollywood moviemakers have created a vigorous, resourceful tradition of cinematic storytelling that continues to engage audiences around the world.

Novelist and screenwriter, Peter Beagle maintains that screenwriting employs a logic different from that used in writing novels and describes it as having endless horizons but very little depth. Commenting on his novels, The Lord of the rings and The Last unicorn, he explains his own creative process as "85% conscious craft, 15% swamp." While he laments the fact that screenwriting keeps him from devoting himself more fully to writing novels, he considers himself successful and "a very lucky man."

  • That which survives : design networks and blueprint culture between fandom and franchise
  • Used universes and immaculate realities : appropriation and authorship in the age of previzualization
  • Chains of evidence : augmented performance before and after the digital
  • Microgenres in migration : special effects and transmedia travel
  • Conclusion : The effects of special effects.
A rare look at the role of special effects in creating fictional worlds and transmedia franchises From comic book universes crowded with soaring superheroes and shattering skyscrapers to cosmic empires set in far-off galaxies, today's fantasy blockbusters depend on visual effects. Bringing science fiction from the studio to your screen, through film, television, or video games, these special effects power our entertainment industry. More Than Meets the Eye delves into the world of fantastic media franchises to trace the ways in which special effects over the last 50 years have become central not just to transmedia storytelling but to worldbuilding, performance, and genre in contemporary blockbuster entertainment. More Than Meets the Eye maps the ways in which special effects build consistent storyworlds and transform genres while traveling from one media platform to the next. Examining high-profile franchises in which special effects have played a constitutive role such as Star Trek, Star Wars, The Matrix, and The Lord of the Rings, as well as more contemporary franchises like Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter, Bob Rehak analyzes the ways in which production practices developed alongside the cultural work of industry professionals. By studying social and cultural factors such as fan interaction, this book provides a context for understanding just how much multiplatform storytelling has come to define these megahit franchises. More Than Meets the Eye explores the larger history of how physical and optical effects in postwar Hollywood laid the foundation for modern transmedia franchises and argues that special effects are not simply an adjunct to blockbuster filmmaking, but central agents of an entire mode of production.

Daniel Clowes (b. 1961) emerged from the "alternative comics" boom of the 1980s as one of the most significant cartoonists and most distinctive voices in the development of the graphic novel. His serialized "Eightball" comics, collected in such books as "David Boring, " "Ice Haven, " and "Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, " helped to set the standards of sophistication and complexity for the medium. The screenplay for "Ghost World, " which Clowes co-adapted (with Terry Zwigoff) from his graphic novel of the same name, was nominated for an Academy Award.Since his early, edgy "Lloyd Llewellyn" and "Eightball" comics, Clowes has developed along with the medium, from a satirical and sometimes vituperative surrealist to an unmatched observer of psychological and social subtleties. In this collection of interviews reaching from 1988 to 2009, the cartoonist discusses his earliest experiences reading superhero comics, his time at the Pratt Institute, his groundbreaking comics career, and his screenplays for "Ghost World" and "Art School Confidential." Several of these pieces are drawn from rare small-press or self-published zines, including Clowes's first published interview. He talks at length about the creative process, from the earliest traces of a story, to his technical approaches to layout, drawing, inking, lettering, and coloring. The volume concludes with a 2009 interview conducted specifically for this book.

Traces changing concepts of masculinity in popular Hollywood blockbusters from 1992 to 2008 - the Clinton and Bush eras - against a backdrop of contemporary political events, social developments, and popular American myths. Kord and Krimmer investigate the most common male types - cops, killers, fathers, cowboys, superheroes, spies, soldiers, rogues, lovers, and losers - and their in-depth analysis of over sixty films, from the The Matrix and Iron Man to Pirates of the Caribbean and The Lord of the Rings, from Wedding Crashers and Mr. & Ms. Smith to War of the Worlds and The 40-Year Old Virgin, shows that movies, far from being mere entertainment, respond directly to today's social and political realities, from consumerism to 'family values' to the War on Terror.

  • Conclusion: The contradictory compensations of popular culture.
This book investigates the hidden truths of some of America's most popular movies and TV programmes. Beginning with John Winthrop's 'city upon a hill' sermon in 1630, American culture has been informed by a sense of its own exceptional nature. As a result, America has always attempted to define itself through a network of invented myths and national narratives. "Red, White, and Spooked" details the development of the myths which can be seen underlying the genres of film noir, the characters of Superman, Batman, and Spiderman, television hits like "Deadwood" and "NYPD Blue", and the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Lord of the Rings" franchises.This culture-spanning investigation begins with a historical survey of supernatural and superhuman themes in American culture, concluding with the recent upsurge that began in the 1990s. It then turns to a number of thematic chapters that discuss various works of recent popular culture with supernatural and superhuman themes - such as "The X-Files", "Smallville", "The 4400", "Medium", "Heroes", "Lost", and "The Dead Zone" - organized according to the desires to which these works commonly respond.

The riveting story of the origins of our digital age and the crusaders and inventors who made it all possible. Computer chips are an almost invisible part of our modern lives, and yet they make much of what's "modern" in them possible. Even the tech-averse and the tech-opposed among us depend on their hidden capabilities. From today's automobiles, medical scanners, and DVD players to annoying musical greeting cards, space travel, and movies like The Lord of the Rings, microelectronics are everywhere-and taken for granted. But how did this revolutionary technology emerge? Microchip tells that story by exploring the personalities behind the technology. From the two pioneering men who invented the integrated circuit, Nobel Prize winner Jack Kilby and Intel founder Robert Noyce, to luminaries like Gordon Moore and An Wang who put the chip to work, Jeffrey Zygmont shows how the history of the microchip is also the story of a handful of visionaries confronting problems and facing opportunities. A compelling narrative about the germination and advancement of a single technology, Microchip is essential reading about the now-ubiquitous integrated circuit and its outlook for the future.

From the growth in merchandising and product placement to the rise of the movie franchise, branding has become central to the modern blockbuster economy. In a wide-ranging analysis focusing on companies such as Disney, Dolby, Paramount, New Line and, in particular, Warner Bros., Brand Hollywood provides the first sustained examination of the will-to-brand in the contemporary movie business. Outlining changes in the marketing and media environment during the 1990s and 2000s, Paul Grainge explores how the logic of branding has propelled specific kinds of approach to the status and selling of film. Analyzing the practice of branding, the poetics of corporate logos, and the industrial politics surrounding the development of branded texts, properties and spaces - including franchises ranging from Looney Tunes to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter to The Matrix - Grainge considers the relation of branding to the emergent principle of 'total entertainment'. Employing an interdisciplinary method drawn from film studies, cultural studies and advertising and media studies, Brand Hollywood demonstrates the complexities of selling entertainment in the global media moment, providing a fresh and engaging perspective on branding's significance for commercial film and the industrial culture from which it is produced.

From the Dust Jacket: The second of two volumes, this companion to every song that Bob Dylan ever wrote is the most comprehensive book on the words of America's greatest songwriter. Here you'll find not just opinionated commentary or literary interpretation, but facts, first and foremost. Clinton Heylin is the world's leading Dylan biographer and expert, and he has arranged the songs-including a number that have never been performed-in a continually surprising chronology of when they were actually written rather than when they appeared on albums. Using newly discovered manuscripts, anecdotal evidence, and a seemingly limitless knowledge of every Bob Dylan live performance, he has uncovered a wealth of information about the songs, leaving no stone unturned in his research. Here we learn the details of the various women who inspired the songs on Blood on the Tracks and Desire, Dylan's contributions to the Traveling Wilburys, why he left "Blind Willie McTell" off of Infidels and "Series of Dreams" off of Oh Mercy, what broke the long dry spell he had in the 1990s, what material he appropriated from other sources for Love and Theft and Modern Times, and much more. Reading this volume will fundamentally change how you hear Dylan's songs and will make you want to revisit his lesser-known masterpieces. This is an essential purchase for every true Bob Dylan fan-as a guide to the man's work, it will never be surpassed.
