Is Hollywood South the End of Hollywood?

US Film and TV Production in a New Phase of Globalization

featuring Dr. Susan Christopherson, Professor of Economic Geography, Cornell University

Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Building: Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC) in Room 218

Louisiana state tax incentives that lure film and television producers by financing their productions have been blamed for the decline of “Hollywood”.  Research on US media employment patterns and production financing indicates something else: that the changes behind the making of Hollywood South are owed to new profit strategies favoring global markets.  A fragmented audience has increased risk from film and television products for US consumption, discouraging investment by distribution firms. Those firms that control access to the US market have shifted the risks of production financing to producers. State film incentives backfill financing for producers, but have undermined the strength of the LA production complex. Ultimately, they do not herald an enduring shift to more decentralized production of US entertainment media.
