International Perspectives on Business Innovation and Disruption in the Creative Industries

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.

Chapter 1: Value chain restructuring in the film industry: the case of the independent feature film sector

Angus Finney

Subjects: business and management, knowledge management, organisational innovation, innovation and technology, knowledge management, organisational innovation


This chapter explores the impact of the internet, digital technology and social media on the independent film industry’s existing value chain. It specifically delves into how, and in what ways the sector is being restructured as a result of these disruptive elements. The chapter reviews the author’s practitioner knowledge and previously published research, exploring the traditional film value chain model, current value chain restructuring, followed by further examination of digital distribution models. Other creative industries can potentially learn from how the independent film sector is reacting to the above challenge of value chain restructuring.
