What industry magazines do the NY community read?

I'm doing some informal research for a project and I'm trying to get a handle on what film/video/broadcast print publications the East Coast production community regularly reads? (I'm based in London so it's tricky to get a feel for this; any suggestions would be most welcome). Many thanks, Tony

  • The Hollywood Reporter and Variety.

  • Thank you Dan, thanks for your response. Are there any more that you know of that are more production/filmmaker focused? (Both Variety & THR are, it seems, become more 'style' led)

  • Broadcast used to be the thing but they got lost up their own presumption as well as actually expecting subscribers to pay quite a lot for the privilege. Whilst there continues to be an ever narrowing gap between feature film and TV/video much of the essential methodology is crossed over these days.

    If you are able to present yourself as any kind of a professional in the industry you ought to be able get a free subscription to a number of monthly publication, both hard print and online. Try Televisual, Regional Film and Video and AV (Audiovisual) for starters.

  • I'm not sure what you mean by production focused. Like American Cinematographer? Variety and THR are far from "style." You just have to know how to read them. Knowing who just got a 3 picture deal a Paramount might be something worth knowing. Or if an agent broke off from CAA to start his/her own agency. Or who is starting a new production company. Or which films are in pre-production before they start hiring. Then start connecting the dots between productions, agencies, and producers. If you read them consistently for a year, they can be a goldmine of useful information to get shit done.
