Studio Notes by Brian Caldirola

Driving home one day from a lengthy and somewhat inane notes session, I started thinking, “Hell, you could probably give notes on even the greatest scripts ever written.” That night as an experiment, I pulled out the screenplay for “The Godfather” and started marking it up from a film executive’s viewpoint. Thus was born “Studio Notes” — a comedic take that envisions how head honchos might have critiqued (and likely destroyed) cinematic masterpieces. It’s funny, irreverent, and, it turns out, a good way to let off steam.
