“It is not even clear that ‘runaway production’ actually exists.”
–Elizabeth McDonald, chief executive of the Canadian Film and Television Production Association, a group of 400 producers (Collins, Glenn. Blame Canada. The New York Times: June 24, 2002.)
Comments like those above inspired me to make this blog.
There have been over 800 newspaper articles discussing runaway production in major newspapers such as The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and the Chicago Tribune since the term “runaway production” was coined. For a more complete list, see my doctoral dissertation about runaway production, The Lives of Kong, Labor and Moviemaking in Three Acts, City University of New York Graduate Center, 2009. The bibliography is on pages 294 -381. Any decent library can get you a copy by interlibrary loan.
