'And action' - The economic down turn is good for the cinema business, people want escapism at an affordable price and that fits in with Bollywood's plan to increase its global market share of the film industry. It might just be that "East" can teach new tricks to the "West" says Patrick. (Partick von Sychowski, Chief Operating Officer, Adlabs Digital Cinema)
Dr Hadida has created her own 'Bridge Video' to communicate her research and believes the industry should step away from box office-driven evaluation to take in wider dimensions of a movie's overall performance. She suggests that box office receipts remain the focus because they are immediate, reliable and easy to collect when a film's actual profitability - overall cost against overall revenue - is neglected in favour of early theatrical revenue.
Clips from 'The Godfather' demonstrate diversification in a family business; 'Gladiator' shows the implementation of a functional strategy; and 'Jerry Maguire' illustrates the concept of values. However, films that bridge the gap between the business and corporate world and business ideas and concepts are a rare breed. Dr Hadida explains.

Dame Patricia Hodgson of the BBC Trust explains the kinds of challenges they face and the breadth of skills they need in order to be able to operate successfully in a creative environment.
