The rapid growth of new media technologies is radically changing film production and consumption. New technologies such as DVDs, MP3s and the Internet have freed the audience from traditional ways of relating to what used to be termed 'mass media'. In the face of such seismic shifts, the theoretical and pedagogical structures of film and television studies are being shaken to their core. New Media responds to these revolutionary developments, bringing together authors including Constance Penley and Henry Jenkins to address topics such as computer games, digital animation techniques, media convergence, and internet audiences.
