"The paradigm shift from analog to digital media has completely changed the way Hollywood produces and distributes its business. 21st-Century Hollywood presents a perfect snapshot of the new digital present."--Jan-Christopher Horak "Director, UCLA Film & Television Archive "
"Dixon and Foster give readers an enjoyable, informative tour through popular productions and the business models and cultures that surround and impact them. The informal prose and diverse subject matter make this volume--in contract to a great deal of film criticism--appealing to a wide-range of audiences. Recommended."
