Default Re: "Not Studio Enough"

So how do I make it more studio? I'm not sure what that means...
I would take this to mean "how can we sell this to a studio?" Do you have decent trailer moments in the movie? If it's a romantic comedy does the title tell you everything you need to know about the story (i.e. WEDDING CRASHERS, 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN).

studio means more money for budget means return on their investment means solid marketing means trailer moments.

Honestly, I think you're better off posing this question to someone (preferably more than one) who has read the script. They'll give you a much better answer than anyone here. You part of a writer's group? Have a select few trusted readers? Ask them.

I still think you should probably ask them what they mean because this could be taken in so many directions. Asking for too many opinions might take you so far away from what they mean that you might miss the deal in the long run.

Maybe it's a metaphor. Like "Needs more cowbell"?

Being an incorrigible subversive, I say make it as dumbed down and one-dimensional as they want it, just brimming with fluff and bathos, but then hide all the really cool stuff in Kierkegaardian duplicity that isn't detectable by the naked eye without LSD. Nobody even knows they're getting their heads messed with. They think it's a happy family film and you're rolling in the aisle in laughter. Now, that's Studio!
