Abstract:This special edition is concerned with the animation industry, an important part of the creative industries. It discusses the current issues and challenges facing the industry, with reference to the specific contexts of China, Japan and the United Kingdom. The findings of the articles included in this edition resonate with key themes of creative industries research, such as location dynamics, roles of government policy, working conditions of creative workforce, consumer creativity and protection of intellectual property rights. They also raise some fundamental questions about the nature of creativity from the perspective of animation: how it is initiated and fostered, and how it is renewed and remade through production, distribution and consumption processes.
