|Title||Face-to-face interactions along the production chain and across networks: a study of film and television industry in London|
The film and television (FTV) industry is especially sensitive to the exchange of tacit knowledge on products, finance, technologies and markets. Whether the exchanges are negotiations along the production chain or across networks they are a necessary part of the FTV firms’ activities and are deeply embedded in their everyday life, employment and entertainment strategies and budgets. The internationalisation of FTV firms’ activities changes the essence of face-to-face communications and increases the importance of ‘network proximity’. This paper discusses the types and places of face-to-face interactions in the FTV industry, challenging the notion of ‘buzz’. The study is based on interviews with London FTV producers.
