About this book

Through the analysis of examples that range from cutting-edge Hollywood blockbusters to viral films on the internet, and from Victorian cinema to the present, the contributors to this volume discuss the ways in which thinking about technology is crucial to understanding cinema's forms, significance and impact upon audiences.
