This thesis is a theoretically informed and empirical analysis of synergistic processes within Hollywood production and circulation. Drawing on the distinction between economic and cultural synergy, the thesis proposes an argument concerning the homology and interaction of these modes and how they have developed from an intensive to an extensive form. The study combines theoretical perspectives from the political economy of culture and cultural analysis with film studies. It also draws upon the sociology of organisations and notes how synergy has been somewhat neglected in management theory as well as in media studies.
