You started with a small budget and a personal assistant who guided you along the way. Spielberg gave you a pep talk before you're left to work on your first feature. Ted and Terry (or Terry and Ted) offered you useful suggestions on changing your script. Delays were inevitable and cost you money but before you knew it you were doing your first shoot with Quentin Tarantino and Jennifer Aniston. For good measure Penn and Teller were on board too. Dean Cundey who was the director of photography on Apollo 13 and Jurassic Park was there to keep everything working and within budget.
After taking your film to the editing room where you could choose the angles and got to grips with the tools you had such as adding sound effects, off the wall editing and adding a soundtrack you were ready for your movie to go live.
At the premiere, Steven Spielberg himself would present your work and made you feel like you've really achieved something special. The studio usually gave you a thumbs up and a chance to do the whole movie again but this time with a bigger budget.
