Summary: After an unprecedented halt to film and television production, the industry had to find new ways of working safely. In the UK, this was a momentous effort which led to the British Film Commission’s working safely on set protocols. Features like Jurassic World: Dominion became a trailblazer, implementing over 40,000 Covid tests for crew and leading the way for new production techniques. There were some wins for jobs that were once perceived as impossible to do from home, enabled by technology. What are the lessons we can learn and what does the future look like as we push past the pandemic?
Summary: Recent academic research in media, communication and internet studies has begun to examine the effects of digital platforms on culture, via concepts such as “the platformization of cultural production” but so far such research has been under-developed. This paper reports on research concerning such effects, using the example of musical production and consumption, where such effects have in fact been the basis of very considerable public debate. In particular, I focus on two issues. The first is the controversy over whether the arrival of digital platforms such as Spotify and Apple Music have damaged the ability of musicians to earn sustainable livings from making music, further entrenching longstanding inequalities. The second issue concerns whether such digital platforms have damaged musical culture itself, for example by making music more “functional” (e.g. used to accompany activities such as working out or going to sleep) at the expense of its artistic- aesthetic dimensions.
