This history of British film studios will open the doors on the glamour, gossip, trials and tribulations of film-making in Britain, starting with the early development of film in Britain and bringing the story up to date with the current renaissance of film production in the UK. With a chapter on each major studio, the book will reveal the famous actors and film makers who worked in them. We will look at changes in technology, and by using interviews with film makers will also reveal the everyday life of the studios from a more personal point of view. We will take a “behind-the-scenes” look at the making of well-known films, including British franchises like the Bond films, and American classics like Star Wars.
