This chapter offers an analysis of the relationships between media practice-as-research and the screen media industries. It draws upon my own experience in the UK as a producer and academic teaching screen media. In 2006, I founded ScreenWork, the first peer-reviewed journal for media practice, in response to a long series of debates about the status of screen media practice-as-research, which took place in the institutional context of the UK’s Research Assessment Exercise criteria. These debates were driven by an increasing number of screen media practitioner scholars in higher education taking up the struggle to have their production work recognised as research by their universities and, therefore, by the Research Assessment Exercises.
