The Dream the Kicks is a classic account of the prehistory and early years of cinema in Britain. In this new paperback edition, which has been thoroughly revised to take into account recent scholarship of early cinema, Michael Chanan provides a fasciniating account of the rich and hitherto hidden history of the origins of film. Chanan demonstrates that the theory of `the persistence of vision', which led to the invention of moving pictures, has been superceded by modern scientific findings. In its place, he puts forward a theory of invention as a type of bricolage, and shows that cinematography was a product of the forces of nineteenth century capitalism. He discusses the wealth of influences, both popular and bourgeois, on the culture of early cinema, including diorama, the magic lantern, itinerant entertainers and music hall. He looks at the relationship between film and photography, and considers the nascent film business, the ways in which early cinema was received by its audiences and the developing aesthetics of cinema in its first fifteen years.

Ausgehend vom in den britischen Cultural Studies entwickelten Domestizierungskonzept nimmt der Band einerseits aktuelle Prozesse der Verbreitung digitaler Medien und ihre Folgen für Alltag, Zusammenleben und Medienfunktionen in den Blick (Internet, Mobiltelefon). Er verbindet dies andererseits mit einem historischen Rückblick auf Domestizierungsprozesse ‚alter' Medien wie Radio, Fernsehen, Telefon. Im Zentrum steht vor allem der häusliche Kontext als Ort der Medienaneignung, aber auch die Interaktion mit mobiler Kommunikation und anderen sozialen Räumen. Mit "domestication" wird der Prozess beschrieben, in dem Medien in die Haushalte einziehen, von den NutzerInnen in das Alltagshandeln und in die Medienmenüs integriert werden und sich auf diesem Weg massenhaft und über soziale Grenzen hinweg verbreiten. Die historische Perspektive macht deutlich, dass solche Prozesse - so revolutionär sie im Zuge der Digitalisierung zunächst auch erscheinen mögen - auch bei der Verbreitung anderer Medien relevant waren. Der Band verbindet historische Rekonstruktionen und Gegenwartsanalysen, Mediengeschichts- und Medienrezeptionsforschung.

This is the first collection of original critical essays devoted to exploring the misunderstood, neglected and frequently caricatured role played by the film producer. The editors' introduction provides a conceptual and methodological overview, arguing that the producer's complex and multifaceted role is crucial to a film's success or failure. The collection is divided into three sections where detailed individual essays explore a broad range of contrasting producers working in different historical, geographical, generic and industrial contexts. Rather than suggest there is a single type of producer, the collection analyses the rich variety of roles producers play, providing fascinating and informative insights into how the film industry actually works. This groundbreaking collection challenges several of the conventional orthodoxies of film studies, providing a new approach that will become required reading for scholars and students.

Walter Benjamin's The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (1936) identified the cultural shift that occurred at the end of the nineteenth century, when photomechanical techniques destabilized existing visual hierarchies and helped initiate the modern media. The Mass Image provides the first substantial account of the emergence of the photographically reproduced image as it traces the expansion of imagery that transformed the artistic and cultural landscape of the 1890s. This book looks in detail at the illustrators, photographers, editors, publishers, wood engravers and reproduction firms who commissioned, originated and produced images in popular illustrated magazines. The book demonstrates that photomechanical reproduction was central to an explosion of hybrid hand-drawn and photographic imagery. These visual fragments provided readers with a meaningful picture of the surfaces of everyday modernity. Book jacket.
