About this book

This handbook is an essential creative, critical and practical guide for students and educators of screen production internationally. It covers all aspects of screen production—from conceptualizing ideas and developing them, to realizing and then distributing them—across all forms and formats, including fiction and non-fiction for cinema, television, gallery spaces and the web. With chapters by practitioners, scholars and educators from around the world, the book provides a comprehensive collection of approaches for those studying and teaching the development and production of screen content. With college and university students in mind, the volume purposely combines theory and practice to offer a critically informed and intellectually rich guide to screen production, shaped by the needs of those working in education environments where ‘doing’ and ‘thinking’ must co-exist. The Palgrave Handbook of Screen Production fills an important gap in creative-critical knowledge of screen production, while also providing practical tools and approaches for future practitioners.

Reviews

“This book brings together an impressive and complimentary group of international screen practitioner-academics who explore and share their experiences of screen production not only as a creative endeavour, but also as a space of discovery and enlightenment. At a time of immense transformation within screen production practices, it is extremely valuable for the student and researcher to have access to such a comprehensive coverage of issues, themes and debates all within one book. The clear commitment to the critically engaged reflexive practitioner provides practical guidance that truly reflects the maturing relationships between screen production practices, screen production education and screen production research.” (Erik Knudsen, Filmmaker and Professor of Media Practice, University of Central Lancashire, UK)
