Film Career (Sims 3 Remake)

Film Career

Film 1

Level 1: Background Extra

Monday – Friday 

Times: 1 pm to 6 pm

As a Background Extra, it’s important never to be heard or seen, unless the scene calls for clapping or the incoherent cheers of the mob. A healthy dose of anonymity will do you some good, since an introduction to stardom is just a few takes away!

Level 2: Best Boy/Girl

Monday – Friday 

Times: 1 pm to 6 pm

The Best Boy/Best Girl is often not the best and, as required by law, typically not a boy/girl. As a lackey to the Director, stars, it’s your job to get it done regardless of the cost to personal dignity.

Level 3: Key Grip

Monday – Friday 

Times: 12 pm to 6 pm

Much like the movement of the camera, your career is seemingly on rails towards stardom and glory. However, for now your job is getting everything precisely in focus for the Director. Continue charming your fellow crew members and your career will come into focus!

Level 4: Personal Assistant

Monday – Friday

Times: 8 am to 4 pm

Being the right hand of someone important is as good as actually being important! You’ll need to mix and mingle with celebrities while taking care of tasks for you employer.

Level 5: Production Manager

Monday – Friday

Times: 7 am to 5 pm

The set, crew, equipment and assets are all under your purview as Production Manager, which means you’re on the line when poorly supervised explosive stunts go boom! If you keep schmoozing with Celebrities after hours and help produce films on time and on budget, stardom will be yours.

Acting Branch 

Film Branch 1

Level 6: TV Actor

Monday – Thursday 

Times: 7 am to 5 pm

Skills: Charisma Level 2

The grind of a weekly, globally syndicated TV show is good for an aspiring actor. It’s all about pacing, humility, and an almost excessive outpouring of charisma. Hit your marks and nobody will touch that dial.

Level 7: Featured Actor

Monday – Thursday

Times: 7 am to 5 pm

Skills: Charisma Level 4

The network is excited to see you as a Featured Actor in each and every one of their crime, court room, and hospital dramas, as well as a brief cameo in their feel-good family friendly comedy. You’re such a charmer!

Level 8: Supporting Actor

Monday – Thursday 

Times: 12 pm to 6 pm

Skills: Charisma Level 6

The confines of household televisions are not sufficient for your budding stardom. The studio has pushed you to the big screen in theaters nationwide, albeit in a Supporting Actor role. Keep flashing those pearly whites at hotspots around town and soon you’ll be so popular that your acting abilities won’t even be taken into account!

Level 9: Lead Actor

Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Times: 7 am to 7 pm

Skills: Charisma Level 8

When the credits roll, it’ll be your name that appears on screen first, regardless of alphabetical order. The film is about you, your talents, your face, and your Celebrity status. Pick your roles carefully and continue building your contact list around the set.

Level 10: Superstar Actor

Monday, Wednesday, Friday

 Times: 7 am to 5 pm

Skills: Charisma Level 10

Each and every movie you grace with your presence breaks sales records. Whether it’s 3D, 2D, silent, or animated, your acting ability and Celebrity status are unsurpassed. Filmgoers and your peers whisper not about whether you’re the greatest actor alive, but if you’re the best ever.

Directing Branch

Film Branch 2

Level 6: Storyboardist

Monday – Thursday

Times: 12 pm to 6 pm

Skills: Writing Level 2

Before the set is crafted and actors begin practicing lines, the scene must be storyboarded. This is a good time to hone your writing abilities and improve your Celebrity status, because your best idea is only as good as who you know.

Level 7: 2nd Unit Director

Monday – Friday

Times: 8 am to 2 pm

Skills: Writing Level 4

Although the 2nd Unit Director doesn’t shoot too many scenes involving actors, you do get to travel to remote and gorgeous locations and ride along in helicopter flyovers to capture those awe-inspiring credits sequences. You may not be directing what you want, but hey, you are directing !

Level 8: Script Writer

Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday

Times: 7 am to 5 pm

Skills: Writing Level 6

Nothing goes to the director before meeting the express approval of the Script Writer. Every dramatic pause, monologue, and awkward “face the camera” scene is carefully penned by your expert hand. You’re not just a writer anymore – you’re a Celebrity writer !

Level 9: Assistant Director

Monday – Friday

Times: 8 am to 4 pm

Skills: Writing Level 8

Filmgoers raise eyebrows and the blogosphere is bustling with commentary on your specific contributions to your films. The entire movie doesn’t fall under your guiding hand quite yet, but Sims know your mark of quality and innovation when they see it. It’s just a matter of time Mr/Ms. Assistant Director !

Level 10: Distinguished Director

Monday, Wednesday, Friday

Times: 12 am to 6 pm

Skills: Writing Level 10

The recipient of the yearly Best Director award is a foregone conclusion – you. If one of your films comes out in a season, other directors and studios panic like mice and delay showing their work as it is merely pedestrian in comparison to your masterpieces. It has been a long road, but one filled with glorious visuals and shockingly touching drama. You have arrived !
