Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415075130, Paperback)

This revised edition of a standard textbook combines an examination of the cinema and television industries with a detailed analysis of their aesthetic and semiotic characteristics. John Ellis draws on his experience as an independent television producer to provide a comprehensive and challenging overview of the place of film, television and video in our daily lives and their future prospects in a changing media landscape.

(see all 2 descriptions)

Ellis questions the assumption that cinema and television are interchangeable media. He sees cinema and broadcast TV not as competitive media, but as distinct forms, able to play interdependent social roles.
