The Sims Freeplay- Profession Careers: Filmmaker

4 Comments

Once you build the Movie Studio you can begin the Filmmaker career:

This is a profession career so its a little different from a normal career as you can actually go to work with 2 of your sims and help them during their work day!

You can either go to work with your sims or send them to work offsite, if you send them to work offsite this means you won’t see them at the movie studio. But you can go to work with your sim if you select send sim alone or accompany sim and then they can help sims and earn resources (only two sims can be at the movie studio at one time, all other sims with this career have to work offsite)

When you send a sim to work at the movie studio sims will enter with bubbles above their heads, you need to click on this bubble and select one of the tasks that appears, the amount of grey sections there are tells you how many tasks you have to complete before you earn the reward that is pictured in the middle of the bubble:

Once you have built the movie studio 3 workstations will already be unlocked (Security Booth, Catering Area and Golf Cart) so you can start helping sims by completing actions using these workstations, you will see options similar to the image below when you click on one of the bubbles:


Each of these tasks has to be completed in a different workstation so verify ID badge has to take place using the security booth, provide food uses the catering area and provide escort uses the golf cart

TIP: if you are unsure which workstation is required it tells you above the action!

Only one sim can use a workstation at one time (new tasks will be added when you unlock new workstations, keep reading for more information)

Each time your sims complete a task (that section will turn from grey to green) a movie coin bubble will appear above their head, click this and they will earn movie coins and XPs, the experience points are towards levelling up, so they will level up quicker than if you just sent them to work.

Once all the tasks have been completed all the grey sections will now appear green, click on this to receive your reward (the rewards are movie coins and resources used to upgrade the different workstations at the movie studio):

I am not going to go into too much detail about how to complete Profession Careers here, if you are still unsure check out my Guide to Profession Careers for more information on how they work!


HOURS

You can send your sims to work anytime for 8 hours but if you are helping sims they can finish early if they reach the quota, they need to help 15 sims (you need to complete all the tasks for a person to have helped 1 person) during their shift, then they will end their shift early and you earn extra movie coins and resources:

If they are working offsite they will just work for 8 hours and they won’t earn any resources as they won’t be helping any sims.


LEVELS

All sims completing this hobby will be able to reach level 6 in this career:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs
1 Tea Maker S1,310 360
2 Set Cleaner S1,430 650
3 Runner S1,520 980
4 Extra S1,670 1,030
5 Assistant S1,860 1,140
6 Assistant S1,890 1,320

Then only 2 sims, once they reach level 6 can choose to be either a Director or Performer only one sim can be a director and one sim can be a performer, all other sims will stay as level 6 assistant.

Director– when your sim specialises as the Director they can continue to level up and unlock more workstations:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs WORKSTATION UNLOCKED
6 Production Assistant S1,890 1,320 Costume Department
7 Script Supervisor S1,920 1,500 Hair and Makeup Department
8 First Assistant Director S1,950 1,680 Stunt Set
9 Production Manager S1,980 1,860 Directors’s Trailer
10 Director S2,010 2,040

Once you unlock the workstation you have to use the resources to build it before you can help sims using these workstations, only the director will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above. I will be going into detail about workstations later in this post.

Performer– when your sim specialises as the Performer they can continue to level up and unlock more workstations:

 LEVEL  MONEY XPs WORKSTATION UNLOCKED
6 Stand In Actor S1,890 1,320 Audition Room
7 Soap Actor S1,920 1,500 Voice Over Booth
8 B Movie Actor S1,950 1,680 Film Set
9 Lead Actor S1,980 1,860 A List Celebrity Trailer
10 A List Actor S2,010 2,040

Once you unlock the workstation you have to use the resources to build it before you can help sims using these workstations, only the performer will be able to complete tasks to help sims that require one of the workstations above. I will be going into detail about workstations later in this post.

When your sim specialises they have to fulfil profession badges before they can level up (check the occupations tab to find out what you need to do to complete this):


Each sim can only earn one badge per shift and you need all badges before you will be able to level up in this career 

If you don’t manage to complete a badge in a shift the progress for that badge will reset and you will have to start again on the next shift (for example, if your task is to help 2 important sims and you only help one, in your next shift it will reset so you will have to help 2 important sims in that shift to get the badge)

Each level requires you to complete more badges, you cannot level up until all the badges have been collected.

Who are the important sims I need to help to get a badge?

These are the sims with question marks in the bubbles above their heads:

When you reach level 10 in a profession career you unlock the work outfit in that specialist for a female and male adult sim to wear at any time, you can find these in the wardrobe under outfits:

Left- director outfits Right- actor outfits

Remember:

  • You can only go to work with 2 sims at a time, all other sims in this career will work offsite so you won’t see them during the day
  • Only one sim can use a workstation at one time
  • If you don’t know how Profession Careers work read my guide

Workstations

The workstations require resources to upgrade them so the time an action takes will decrease and the coins and XPs you earn for each action will increase. The resources are shown below:

Some resources are not unlocked yet, build new workstations to unlock them

You can see the resources you have in the second tab of the professions menu under storage (you can access this using the button in the top left hand corner of your screen when you are at the movie studio)

In the professions menu you can see:

  • Workplace Overview- here you can see the workstations you have currently unlocked, what level you are on and what resources you need to upgrade them
  • Storage- this is where you see your current resources collected and on the right hand side is your movie coins, the movie coins are used to increase your storage if you need to and trade for resources (which is in the next tab)
  • Resource Exchange- here you can either spin for resources using simoleons or LPs for the mega spin as well as trade movie coins for resources

The tables below show the upgrade resources needed, the time each upgrade will take and the time an action takes and the amount of coins and XPs you earn when you complete each action, only one of these will upgrade each time so if the time taken decreases then the amount of coins and XPs you earn will stay the same until you upgrade again and then the amount of coins you earn will increase while the time taken and XPs will stay the same.

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP

If you don’t have the amount of resources you need it will say it costs LPs, when you have the right amount of resources you can build/ upgrade the workstation without LPs (you know you have all the resources you need when there are ticks next to all the resources):
 When you upgrade each workstation to level 10 and 20 there will be a visual upgrade to the workstation, those pictures are shown below the table.

NOTE: you can only upgrade one workstation at a time unless you are VIP


Are there items for my home that can increase my sims job level? 

Yes, you can buy the movie camera from promotions r us, it costs S2,000, once placed in a house you can practice making films for 3 hours to level up quicker.


Orange Suitcase? Can’t send your sims to work?

 This is because you have already sent them to work once today, if you are VIP level 1 you can send them to work twice in a day (this will cost you 15LPs still if you are VIP)

Wait until tomorrow and you will be able to send them to work again without being VIP.

Do I need to be VIP to use the movie studio?

NO! If you are VIP you can send your sims to work twice a day (VIP level 1), upgrade more than one workstation at a time (VIP level 7) and use the mega spin (VIP level 2) but you do not have to be VIP
