How to Succeed with Film Production in the Regions?
A Study of Key Success Factors in the Norwegian Regional Film Business

-based stories, and both staffs expressed the sense of feeling relatively unfettered by whatever might be happening in Oslo. In an industry that prizes innovation and originality, this free thinking can be very helpful. They take advantage of local talents, locations and stories, but also think global when it comes to networking, co-production, and distribution. Lastly, regional film companies can contribute to place promotion, which in turn promotes them as well – an example of this is the television series Lilyhammer ( Kongsrud 2013 ), which brought attention to

Why Ageing is More Important than Being Old
Understanding the Elderly in a Mediatized World

, numerous media innovations, the rise and decline of technologies, and the merging of various communicative functions and needs in convergent devices result in a plethora of diverse media ecologies. Thus, constituting generations as birth cohorts and in conjunction with specific media technologies loses explanatory value, as also potential generations multiply in this regard and last for shorter intervals (for a detailed critique Bolin 2016 : 32–34, Hart-Brinson et al. 2016 ). As Björkin (2015 : 54) points out, however, ‘it is still useful to use this notion – and

Logics of the Icelandic Hybrid Media System
Snapchat and media-use before the 2016 and 2017 Althing elections

suggests a revisit of the dichotomy of the normalization vs. innovation hypothesis. Gibson and McAllister (2015) , referring to the period from the late 1990s until 2010, suggested a longitudinal approach to these hypotheses suggesting a cyclical process, where initial equalization stemming from the web was followed by normalization as more communication resources were needed. Then, in turn, equalization reappeared as the social media, or Web 2.0 technology, began to spread around 2010. The Icelandic data explored here refers to a stage where social media have become

was also the third country in the world to digitise terrestrial broadcasting in 2007. Israel has been dubbed a ‘start-up nation’ due to the numerous technological start-ups and innovations developed in the country . These countries share a long tradition of public service broadcasting. However, the evolution of these institutions in Finland and Israel does not follow a similar pattern. Public service television in Israel has been in decline for some time now, while in Finland, it is still supported. The future of public service

A Gap in Networked Publics?
A Comparison of Younger and Older Journalists’ Newsgathering Practices on Social Media

profession. Younger journalists are, historically speaking, the first generation to have grown up with social media as a primary communication and information channel. These social media natives might socialise, think and process information differently than social media immigrants, or older journalists. Furthermore, Rogers’ (1995) studies of innovation diffusion show that younger individuals tend to be more open to new and innovative ideas than older individuals. However, other researchers (e.g., Hargittai & Hinnant 2008 ) have challenged this notion of a younger

Exploring Journalism and Computer Science Student Collaboration
A Norwegian case study

. That students with different training backgrounds respected one another’s skills is in line with previous findings by Hultén and Edwardsson (2017) and Kavanagh and Cokley (2011) . Some groups engaged in conversation about professional boundaries, gained new insights and were interested in further interdisciplinary work. This is a positive result that points to more opportunities for innovation and boundary negotiations in journalism. The insights from this study provide guidance on the contingencies that may affect the process of working together in a technology

To explore opportunities and to invent and create something seem to be major sources of inspiration among entrepreneurs, as well as their prevalent definition of what signifies entrepreneurship. This is perhaps also what the hyperlocal entrepreneurs of the present study refer to when mentioning their passion for entrepreneurship as such: testing their own ideas, innovating technical solutions, starting new forms of collaborations, creating a label or a title and developing content can all be summed up as the
