I would try to keep it focused on “feeling” / general sense of comedy. When you get specific like this it starts to pull it away from the area and into more trying to define a source of conflict.
I’m saying that’s a deceiving approach and that there’s a way easier way to find a storyform.
Home Alone - external comedy (fighting burglars off defending the home)
Santa Claus - internal comedy (posing as Santa Claus, changing the way you make toys)
Elf - internal comedy (all the stuff you posted above :))
That’s why I’m saying there is likely a better way to differentiate something like Home Alone from Elf. Something better than just Holiday Comedy.
So with the comedy in the internal space, the trend is Psychology or Mind for OS?
And knowing that it’s a “lighter” comedy and not so serious, where does that put the MC?
