Imagination Connoisseur, Philip Jafri, is curious how studios strike the balance between artistic integrity and commercial success … no matter their size.


Recently, I have been thinking about how film studios balance artistic integrity with commercial gain and am keen to get your insights into this.

I know that smaller art studios are more free to take liberties when making creative decisions and are able to build a cult audience whereas larger studios have different considerations – mainly those sweet, shiny dollar signs, consolidating their place in the marketplace and mass market appeal and thus may be hesitant to make creative decisions that might jeopardize this.
