The Hollywood Cinema unit is divided into two distinct sections to give you a clear understanding of early Hollywood film and the more contemporary form which we are used to today. The aim of this unit is to give you a comprehensive introduction to Hollywood productions, factoring in key developments in culture, technology and the industry.
The first half of the unit is comprised of studio-era Hollywood and classic Hollywood film. Studio-era Hollywood focuses on the early cinema of the 1890s to the 1910s, emphasising how productions were run and how they changed into what is known as the classic Hollywood film. These films were made between the 1920s and 1950s, and show Hollywood’s move into an international market.
The latter half of the unit is more concerned with post-studio era Hollywood, and post-classical and contemporary Hollywood film. These periods of Hollywood history run from the 1960s to the present day. They are separated from the earlier versions of Hollywood by two key factors: the industrial and technological changes, and the sheer scale of Hollywood both through its established international reach and its role in multimedia.
