Create your own script

> Help > The Game > Scripts

By choosing the option to create a scenario you get the opportunity to write it from scratch.

By creating your own scenario you have to decide about the following its properties:

  • Title,
  • Length,
  • Genre
  • Basic properties (violence/humor/sex)
  • Description of plot
  • Quote
  • Ending
  • Creators

Below you will find a description of each properties of script.

Title

We start, of course, by give the title of our working script. If I'm not just inspiration, We can use the titles available in the game and generate a random title. With the history of the titles, we can easily return to the previously generated. The title of the scenario does not have to be the ultimate title created on the basis of the film, as it can be changed during production of the film.

Film type (Length)

The game offers two types of movies:

  • full-length
  • short films

Most players will make featured movies, which are the default type of movies in the game. Short films are cheaper to produce, hence can be used in the initial phase of the game to earn more money and experiments. Short films, however, have a few limitations (as inability to report to festivals so they cannot earn any awards). More about the types of movies you will find in this section.

Genre

There are over 20 movie genres in the game. Their availability depends on the type of game and the level of difficulty selected by the player. Not all of them are available from the beginning for each player, in each game mode.

As a standard, there are some basic film genres. Over time, along with gaining prestige points the player has the option of further species. The final number of species available to a player depends on the type and level of difficulty. All 23 species are only available for players playing in the Professional level.

Genre determines the general framework of what movie we want to produce. And depending on him we set the main properties of the scenario which are: the amount of violence, humor and sex.

Each of these properties can take the intensity on a scale of 0 (the lack of given feature) to 10 (the maximum value).

We also specify the species a few, invisible elements, as expected special effects whether the voltage.

Sub-genres

By manipulating the main properties of the script (humor, violence, sex) and the type and number of the creators you can influence on the sub-genre. This is not a property, which you can set explicitly because the idea is that is is just a hint for the player what kind of movie he created within the main genre by modifying the main parameters.

Ambition of the genre

Later the species is available for the player, the more is regarded as an ambitious. Ambition of the genre is taken into account by the jury of festivals. If few film will be evaluated on the same level the prize will receive this one with a more ambitious script (* This is dependent on the Festival, because each of the festivals has some unique features, which prefers specific elements/values of films).

Ending

In addition to the main parameters of scenario we can also choose the type of ending. You can choose from the following values.

  • Happy End
  • Normal
  • Tragic
  • Ambiguous

Ending affects the reception of films by critics and audience.

The best shows them the table below:

Type of finish The impact of the criticism Impact on viewers
Happy End +
Normal none none
Tragic +
Ambiguous ? (random) ? (random)

Completion can be changed also on the stage movie production, However, this increases the time of production.

Description of plot

This element does not affect in any way the game itself. Merely increase the involvement of the player by allowing you to place a short description of the plot of scenario.

Quote

The player can insert (or generate) some iconic quote in their production. It can be used in a review.

Creators

The scenario must have also the creators. At least two. One of them is the Director and the second at least one actor.

The maximum number of creators in the film is 10. In addition to the Director and the 1 to 7 actors may be also the composer and/or operator. The order of placement of the actors in the scenario is relevant. And so the first two are the main (main roles), the next two are supporting roles, and the other character are episodic roles. The less significant role the lesser extent affect it the final evaluation of the film (but also the salaries for actors for such roles are smaller).

The more significant the role the more performance of given person affects the final review of the film.

Type of actors role affect the importance of the role of the creator.

In the case of actors, roles, you can give the character names. In addition to increasing involvement in the game they used in the so-called cult heroes.
