Managing in the Media has been devised for a broad audience. It is based upon the perceived need for a text that amalgamates cultural theories, film and television analysis, management theories and media production practice into one volume. There are many books on film and cultural studies. Similarly, there are copious numbers of texts written on management. To date little has been written that analyses the management of the audiovisual industry set against the backdrop of the cultural and economic environment within which the media manager operates. Managing in the Media is divided into three sections that take the reader from the global to the specific, from the strategic to the tactical. Each chapter discusses specific topics that can be read in isolation yet contribute to the theme within each part. Taken as a whole, the book provides the potential professional media manager and current practising media manager with a framework of issues that will give them an awareness of the range of knowledge needed by the successful media manager. This book does not try to be a manual to success. The media industry is awash with successful individuals none of whom needed textbooks to set them on their chosen career paths. Yet these exceptional people prove the rule; that in the main, most media practitioners would benefit from some additional support and guidance. The aim of this book is to present to them some of the management issues that have, or will have, an impact upon their working careers. The accompanying website www.mediaops.net (which can also be accessed via www.focalpress.com) features: - Tutor notes and reader activities - Updated list of further reading - Additional support material such as production templates - Interviews with the authors - A discussion forum - Industry and education links - Media News

Technology, smartphones and social media are changing how we live but are these advancements changing who we are? In our globally-connected, instantly-accessible world, is it possible for parents to be more influential on their children's character than the internet? Parents everywhere are struggling to find a standard they can maintain while keeping their children protected online and connected with friends. In the absence of any such standard, many children have free reign with the technology they own and the media they consume. The result has been an unsettling amount of cyberbullying, self-harm, and suicides along with increased rates of adolescent depression and anxiety. In Managing Media Creating Character, you will learn how to use the technology and media your child craves in order to develop patience, respect, kindness, honesty, self-control, modesty, humility, and self-worth. Each chapter presents a character trait along with a practical and applicable media standard in order to teach responsible use and good character. These character traits are honed and polished through the use of digital media and screens and become the foundation and standard for how your child will engage with technology forever. This book helps establish a technology and media standard for families with: Babies & Toddlers who are incredibly drawn to the glow of your phone. Elementary age children when the school-issued tablet or a second grader with a smartphone brings up questions sooner than you are ready to answer. Middle School age children when smartphones, sexting, and depression begins. High School age teens who can either solidify or shatter their reputation by what is posted and shared online. Additionally, this book is a valuable guide for grandparents, teachers, caretakers, and pastors who are involved in children's lives and want to help curb obsession and promote character. There has never been a better time to unite on a standard for technology and media.

This college-level media management textbook reflects the changes in the media industries that have occurred in the past decade. Today's managers must address new issues that their predecessors never faced, from the threats of professional piracy and casual copying of digital media products, to global networks, on-demand consumption, and changing business models. The book explains the new new vocabulary of media moguls, such as bandwidth, digital rights management, customer relations management, distributed work groups, centralized broadcast operations, automated playlists, server-based playout, repurposing, mobisodes, TV-to-DVD, and content management. The chapters logically unfold the ways that managers are evolving their practices to make content, market it, and deliver it to consumers in a competitive, global digital marketplace. In addition to media companies, this book covers management processes that extend to all content-producing organizations, because today's students are as likely to produce high-quality video and Web video for ABC Computer Sales as they are for the ABC Entertainment Television Network.

Media Management and Digital Transformationprovides novel and empirically rich insights into the tensions, struggles and innovations of news making and managing in media organizations. From an empirically grounded perspective this book investigates how the "buzz" of new technology tends to prevent management from seeing which changes are needed and indeed possible to make in the newsroom. It presents ground-breaking research showing that fostering ingenious innovative solutions can be created from within organizations by engaging and allowing employees to recognize problems, reflect and experiment with new ways of working, using technology as support for change. The research presented arises from a four-year action research project in collaboration with three small and medium sized Norwegian newspapers, in addition to ethnographic research in newsrooms and on media organizations and phenomena in the US and Europe. It includes among other empirical examples of newsrooms transitioning from a deadline-controlled workflow to an open-ended flowline production and provides new tools and methods for fostering collaborative creativity and co-creative innovation practices. It also looks into newsrooms' attempts to strengthen their audience engagement, metrics performance and external collaborations with technology providers, journalism education and action researchers. With theoretical chapters, methodological insights and qualitative case-studies of contemporary practices, this book is essential reading for students and practitioners involved with media management globally. of newsrooms transitioning from a deadline-controlled workflow to an open-ended flowline production and provides new tools and methods for fostering collaborative creativity and co-creative innovation practices.
