My main gripe is that you can't place your actors. Say you want Actor A to run from point B to point C. That's fine, you just can't choose where point B and C is. You must choose from a preset point B/C.

Like someone said in a previous thread, this isn't the game for movie-making. More for management (ack, spelling?).

Yeah, you have to register, but it's free, and you get unlimited upload space with low hassle. Of course make sure to know the upload rules first... but they're pretty obvious. No illegal stuff, etc. etc.

May I explain in my words, how this game works? ;)

Well, basically people think "movie making" as soon as you hear the name of the game. Well, that's okay, but you don't just go and make movies. You have to buy the sets, and hire the actors, as well as build the sets (That's pretty easy, hire a few builders and they do the dirty work).

Once you have got a few sets, you're ready to start making your movie. Advanced movie making building (which you have to buy and build) is the most fun, and probably most important part of the game. You don't need to use this, if you just want to manage the studio, you can make the CPU make the movies. But that's boring, who would want to do that?!

So, go into the advanced movie making building, and here you can type the name of your movie (or use the movie name advise button) and choose who is the main character, etc. As well as choose how much you control over the movie. I always put it on highest (forgot what its actually called right now) but I haven't noticed much difference.

You now may choose which set you want to use on the first scene, say I want to use the forest set I bought a while ago...

There will be a few animations to choose from, such as 'violence', 'travel' and a few more. Or you can just check through the main part where all the animations for that scene are. So, say we want to choose this 'car drives few meters then two people get out' animation. You can then place your actors into the shoes you want them to be in. Shame you can't move the character's around, though.

Once you have completed your movie, you may then rehearse, shoot and release your movie.

Once it is released, you can save the game and visit the main menu to edit your movie. Where you can add music (which if I remember correctly, can't upload from your hard drive. You have to use the music available. But I think you unlock more as you go along) add fade out and in effects, as well as cut your scenes.

As for the buildings and actors in game. Well, I'm not a keen management sim game lover. But this can be quite fun. Buildings decay, actors get fat and drunk if they are bored (this only happens when you make their appearances to their dislikes. Or not give them enough activities to do) and actors also get tired, as do directors.

That's most of what you need to know, if I have missed anything, please let me know. I will upload my movie later and maybe show you some screen shots.

Any questions?

Nice movie, made a whole lot more sense then that first try. How long did you worked on it?

Spoiler: Show
That ninja at the end was just random, funny :p . The main character entered town walking like he has a stick up his ar** though. Otherwise the action was nice and the lines were not too bad either. The music wasn't too bad either, nice combination of western music and techno. :lol:

I spent about 2 hours on that, I think... time just seems to become meaningless when I dive into making movies, so i dont really keep track sorry.

NINJA MODE: ON!!!
