This new edition of Film Marketing is a thorough update of the first textbook in film promotion. Like in the first edition, Kerrigan takes a socio-cultural, as well as a business view of film marketing and its impact, covering different approaches to promotion according to different aims and audiences internally and externally, and across the world. This book addresses all areas of film marketing from the rigorous perspective of someone with first-hand knowledge of the trade. This new edition also includes:
Additional pedagogy and visual examples to reinforce key points
A more international range of cases and coverage of non-Western markets to give a global overview of film marketing across the world
New and expanded sections on social media, digital promotion, transmedia and crowdfunding
This is the original film marketing text which no engaged film or marketing student should be without.
This book presents a collection of stimulating articles that report some of the freshest and most innovative research and thinking in the authors’ specialist domains. Collectively the chapters offer a balance of empirical and conceptual research in arts, heritage, non-profit and social marketing. They explore new ideas, challenge pre-existing orthodoxies, develop knowledge, and demonstrate the epistemological importance of current research in these critical areas.
This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Marketing Management.
Marketing the Arts argues that arts marketing is not about the simple application of mainstream managerial marketing to the arts. With contributions from international scholars of marketing and consumer studies, this book engages directly with a range of contemporary themes, including:
The importance of arts consumption and its social dimensions
The importance of the aesthetic experience itself, and how to research it
Arts policy development
The art versus commerce debate
The role of the arts marketer as market-maker
The artist as brand or entrepreneur
This exciting new book covers topics as diverse as Damien Hirst’s 'For the Love of God', Liverpool’s brand makeover, Manga scanlation, Gob Squad, Surrealism, Bluegrass music, Miles Davis and Andy Warhol, and is sure to enthuse students and enlighten practitioners.
Although primarily focusing on the UK market, the subject has global relevance and appeal, and policy is evaluated on national, European and supranational levels. Specialist topics dealt with range from the marketing of the theatre, opera, and museums, through to the film industry and popular music.
