              From the trailers and promos that surround film and television to the ads and brand videos that are sought out and shared, promotional media have become a central part of contemporary screen life. Promotional Screen Industries is the first book to explore the sector responsible f...or this thriving area of media production. In a wide-ranging analysis, Paul Grainge and Catherine Johnson explore the intermediaries - advertising agencies, television promotion specialists, movie trailer houses, digital design companies - that compete and collaborate in the fluid, fast-moving world of promotional screen work. Through interview-based fieldwork with companies and practitioners based in the UK, US and China, Promotional Screen Industries encourages us to see promotion as a professional and creative discipline with its own opportunities and challenges. Outlining how shifts in the digital media environment have unsettled the boundaries of 'promotion' and 'content', the authors provide new insight into the sector, work, strategies and imaginaries of contemporary screen promotion. With case studies on mobile communication, television, film and live events, this timely book offers a compelling examination of the industrial configurations and media forms, such as ads, apps, promos, trailers, digital shorts, branded entertainment and experiential media, that define promotional screen culture at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

              Transnational Television History: A Comparative Approach

              Despite the fact that television has developed into a major agent of transnational and global flow of information and entertainment, television historiography and scholarship largely remains a national endeavour, partly due to the fact that television has been used to create a na...tional identity. But the breaking of the quasi-monopoly of public service broadcasters all over Europe in the 1980s has changed the television landscape, and cross-border television channels - with the help of satellite and the Internet - have catapulted the relatively closed television nations into the universe of globalized media channels. At least, this is the picture painted by the popular meta-narratives of European television history. Transnational Television History asks us to re-evaluate the function of television as a medium of nation-building in its formative years and to reassess the historical narrative that insists that European television only became transnational with the emergence of more commercial services and new technologies from the 1980s. It also questions these common assumptions in television historiography by offering some alternative perspectives on the complex processes of transnational circulation of television technology, professionals, programmes and aesthetics. This book was originally published as a special issue of Media History.

              Television is not what it used to be. The expansion of competition combined with developments in new media technologies has altered the nature and production of television. In the emerging scholarship that attempts to account for these changes, branding is frequently highlighted ...as the key development within the television industry, yet there are no sustained book length accounts of the emergence of television branding or explorations of what it means to talk about 'branding television'. This study will: Explain how theories of branding can be applied to the specificities of television as a medium and as an industry. Examine how branding has been used in the UK and US television industries, and why branding emerges as a central industrial strategy over the 1980s and 1990s. Explore the impact of the adoption of branding strategies on television programme production and the relationship between producers and viewers Consider how a study of television branding might help account for the changes that have taken place in television as a medium and an industry in a period when some have argued that television itself may be under threat. In addition, Johnson considers the broader context of new digital media, including an examination of the extension of television on to new media such as the internet and mobile phones. This book will provide a clear, accessible exploration of the development of television branding in the US and UK and its impact on both industry and television texts.

              With growth in access to high-speed broadband and 4G, and increased ownership of smartphones, tablets and internet-connected television sets, the internet has simultaneously begun to compete with and transform television. Online TV argues that these changes create the conditions ...for an emergent internet era that challenges the language and concepts that we have to talk about television as a medium. In a wide-ranging analysis, Catherine Johnson sets out a series of conceptual frameworks designed to provide a clearer language with which to analyse the changes to television in the internet era and to bring into focus the power dynamics of the online TV industry. From providing definitions of online TV and the online TV industry, to examining the ways in which technology, rights, interfaces and algorithms are used to control and constrain access to audiovisual content, Online TV is a timely intervention into debates about contemporary internet and television cultures. A must-read for any students, scholars and practitioners who want to understand and analyse the ways in which television is intertwining with and being transformed by the internet.
