With The Movies: Stunts and Effects
, you have the added features of creating stunt scripts, filming on miniature sets, acting against a green screen, and using stuntmen in your movies. Start off by building a stunt school to attract stunt talent and add them to your studio. Along with building the stunt school, you have the ability to build a hospital. Trust me, you are going to need it. Whereas other actors care about their petty lives of trailers and entourages, the stunt men just care about their skill and condition. You use the hospital to make sure your stuntmen stay in peak physical condition. Now that you have your school and your hospital, you will need to train your stuntmen in the ways of the stuntman arts. You can achieve this with special training apparatuses. Just like getting an actor to practice a specific genre, after building a training area, you drop your stunt man in and watch him go. Make sure to keep an eye on their condition.
When cast into a movie, a stunt-man's performance can make or break a feature film. In order to write a script with a stuntman after you have built your school, you will see a helmet icon inside of your scripting office for each genre. Simply drop your script writer onto the helmet the same way you would for a normal movie and they will begin work on your stunt script. When your script is completed, you will have to cast a stuntman alongside one or more of your leading actors. You don't have to assign a stuntman every time. You can take the risk of a lead actor doing their own stunts, and audiences love it. However, you risk the health and longevity of your star if things go wrong.
Once rehearsal has been completed, it is onto the set for shooting. A notifier will chime letting you know when your stunt scene is approaching so you can see the stunt in action. You will also be notified when a stunt has been successfully filmed or if it has been a failure.
Along with these added bonuses for your movies, you also have access to a free camera mode when inside of The Advanced Movie Maker that puts you in the role of script writer and director. The new sets, props, and scenes give you even more options to play with. They have also added the stunt filter allowing you to quickly choose those scenes that have stunts. Make a "Godzilla"-like romp through the city with the miniature sets or film against the green screen for a realistic space look.
