Academic videography productions taking some important steps this week as the film festival was introduced to European Marketing Academy’s yearly conference for the first time. This is excellent news making it possible for filmmakers to submit their work to number of major venues. In addition to ACR conference (Association for Consumer Research) – where the pioneering film work has become a staple feature since 2002 – other options at the moment include for example CCT (Consumer Culture Theory conference), AFM (French Marketing Association) and JNRC (French consumer research conference). This is absolutely great, and we really hope spread even further. Next major conference to invite videographies is the Winter AMA 2016 (American Marketing Assoc). Please send your work!!
The EMAC film track where we joined offered five very nice films touching topics as diverse as consumers’ need for narratives, heterotopic tourist experiences, robots, and electronic music markets. Find the film trailers behind the link here. Our film is a completely new edit of our previously made, award-winning Pushing the Scene (2011) film with a specific focus on exploring how contemporary music scenes and markets come into being and dissipate and how they are negotiated in a complex relationship between the marginal and the mainstream, commercial interests, technologies and ideologies. We conceptualize this evolution in the film as “monstrous organizing” and thus extend prior market and consumer research studies on market dynamics. Check the trailer here (we will make the full film available later): https://vimeo.com/127473931
