|Brazilian Movie Industry Renaissance: Individual or Collective Effort?
|The blend of “competition” and “cooperation” under a single framework has become a traditional approach of game theorists. Nonetheless, organizational sociology researchers have insisted in the introduction of relational aspects to the analysis of organizations, which sheds a different light on the cooperation-competition dichotomy. This article attempts to contribute to this research agenda by offering a social network approach to the movie industry. For this purpose we reconstruct the Brazilian movie industry network from 1994 to 2002. We investigate individuals’ performance by exploring their relations with relevant characteristics. Categorical role (actor, director, producer, among others) is the most powerful predictor of individual performance from 1994 to 1996. However, in the following periods, other variables gain in importance, as individual recognition, centrality and structural equivalence. These findings suggest that in the early stage of a developing networked industry, collective success is more important than individual success. We conclude with possible implications for a co-evolutionary strategic theory.
