Associate Professor Anna Potter is a researcher focusing on children’s screen production cultures and distribution networks, media industries, and communication policy. She is the author of Creativity, Culture, and Commerce: Producing Australian Children’s Television with Public Value (Intellect, 2015), Producing Children’s Television in the On-Demand Age (Intellect, 2020) and multiple journal article and book chapters.

As part of her ARC DECRA (2016-18) Anna studied the rapid evolution of production territories and markets for children’s television opened up by media globalisation, and the impact of digitisation and internet-distribution on children’s media industries and producers’ creative practice.

Anna is Chief Investigator on the ARC Discovery project (2021-23) ‘Making Australian Television in the 21st Century’. This project investigates the intertwined implications of non-Australian ownership, technological adjustments, policy changes, and support adjustments enacted since the mid-00s that have challenged the making of ‘Australian’ television including children’s drama.
