International Perspectives on Business Innovation and Disruption in the Creative Industries

Film, Video and Photography

Edited by Robert DeFillippi and Patrik Wikström

This volume examines how disruptive innovations are reshaping industry boundaries and challenging conventional business models and practices in the industries for film, video and photography. The thirteen chapters provide a rich and diverse account of these processes from a wide range of country contexts. The book fills the gap between the study of disruption by innovation scholars in business schools and the recognition of disruption by academics and practitioners from non-business school disciplines and contexts, including the broader social sciences.

Extract

The creative industries are particularly fecund empirical fields for investigating the processes of business innovation and disruption. The creative industries are some of the fastest growing sectors in many economies (European Commission, 2001; OECD, 2006; United States Census Bureau, 2010) and thus are worthy of study in their own right. Additionally, the study of the creative industries affords insights into how we understand the current economic transformation towards knowledge-based economies more broadly. The transformation toward knowledge-based economies has been foreshadowed by the transformation of creative industries such as publishing, film, video, photography, music and so on. This volume focuses on industries associated with imagery, both moving and still images. Thus, this volume concerns those industries that are based on still imagery (Stock Photography) and moving imagery (Film, Video). Each of these image media technologies and associated industries has experienced a similar set of digital disruptions and related industry transformations, which we will briefly highlight in this introduction and which are detailed in the chapters of this volume.
