Description:
Hollywood films and television programs are watched all over the world. While many of these productions are still made in southern California, the last 20 years have seen many productions made elsewhere in the US, in Canada and in locations around the world. New production centres have emerged and older centres have been retooled and revitalised by migrating Hollywood production. The 'Global Hollywood' has been made possible by a growing number of local Hollywoods - locations equipped with the requisite facilities, resources and labour, as well as the political will and tax systems to attract and host high-budget, Hollywood-standard projects. Using the Gold Coast as a case study, this book shows how a combination of circumstances created our own outpost of Hollywood in Australia. Forces in the US pushed Hollywood studios and producers to work outside California, while a unique situation in Queensland provided an attractive alternative home for Hollywood productions with government tax support, an entrepreneurial business philosophy and a diverse natural environment. Local Hollywood makes a much-needed contribution to the field of film and media studies, as well as being a fascinating insight for all film buffs.
