Formatted Abstract/Summary Over the 1990s and 2000s, the number of places and personnel involved in peripatetic international film and television production expanded considerably to include not just the obvious global media city candidates with substantial ongoing film and television infrastructure such as a London, New York or Rome, or the middle-ranking media cities like Miami, Sydney, Toronto or Prague, but also new production locations with little or no previous experience of continuous film and television production. Notable examples of these greenfield developments are Wilmington in North Carolina; Vancouver; Bucharest and Gold Coast, Australia. Furthermore, with the dramatic expansion in the range and variety of places involved in international film and television production, the rules of the game in peripatetic international production were also changing. In the late 1980s and early 1990s the locations market represented a handful of participating places. By the 2000s it had become global and crowded, representing a plethora of location interests vying for a share of global production capital, with places promoting their various advantages-from financial incentives to available natural and built environments, from the comfort of lead actors and personnel to the security of competence and expertise-as enticements to secure film and television production.
