Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper is to clarify major issues in production planning and collaboration in the making of assemblies of moving images and soundtracks (postproduction of film, TV-programs et cetera). We argue that worker creativity in the making of such assemblies is constrained by the digitalization of production technology. We also argue that the members of each craft that collaborate in the process have their own set of aesthetic and technical problems that need to be solved and that the possible solutions are constrained by the creative space accorded to each craft. Participants do not necessarily subscribe to this idea and any theoretical understanding of the process must also account for the variety of notions put forward by the agents. We give examples from the Swedish TV show, Värsta Språket, from interviews and technical writing in order to clarify and support these arguments.
