This is a process of creating films in lots that are owned by the producers. This studios has a lot of people working on it, (lights, wardrobe, make up artists etc.) and these people are signed in a long term contract, meaning they can’t work for another studio. Studio systems was like a leash to those people working on it including the directors. They can’t say no to a film because as I have said before they are signed into a contract that made them “exclusive” for that studio only, they also control the distributors that’s why before film theaters are rich. They always have films to show. Studio system was soon abolished because of anti-trust laws in a 1948 Supreme court ruling that wants to separate distribution from production.
