Understanding media production Paul Dwyer - London : Routledge, c2019. - vii, 231 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.

"Through in-depth analysis of different types of film, TV and online content, Understanding Media Production examines whether media theory can help inform good practice in media production. Using contemporary examples including Pirates of The Caribbean, Game of Thrones, Love Island and PewDiePie's 'letsplay' videos, Dwyer tracks the evolution of these entertainment formats and outlines how industry sectors and regulatory structures emerged to produce them. Chapters describe the production practices associated with each type of media content, like single and multi-camera production, headlines and "inverted pyramids", three-point lighting and gameplay animation. They also outline key production roles; directors, producers, reporters, correspondents etc. The book goes on to examine contemporary changes in these established production practices and professions, as media organisations use new technologies and process innovations to achieve efficiencies, reduce costs and increase profits. Understanding Media Production's comparative approach uniquely highlights the similarities and differences in the production strategies and styles used for a range of media products. Furthermore, it makes important links between the economic, socio-political and cultural factors which influence these practices. The book is designed to encourage constructive debate between media practitioners and media theorists and offer aspiring producers an introduction to understanding the main production methods used across the UK and US"--
