Introduction

Are your sims charismatic? Are they filled with ambitions to become famous movie stars? If so, bring them to our Warren Bros Film Studio talent seeking event!
You will be able to choose from a big variety of movie genres and titles to try your Sim's acting abilities in, dress them up and prepare to pose for the camera. Our best acting experts will look for originality and creativity, so make sure your Sims learn their role before they go in the spotlight :)

Round Explanations

There will be 3 rounds, each round will be explained in detail below. You will be presented with one different movie genre and 7 fictitious movie titles each round. You can choose one of the available titles and present YOUR Sim as the probationary actor for the role in that movie title. All of the titles are free for your own interpretation, so you can use your imagination to create a character you like, show your Sim's talent to transform into the role! :)
The round challenge will consist of 2 parts: presenting your Sim as an everyday actor and presenting him in the role (with the appropriate apparel/makeup). The requirements will be explained once the round is open. You can enter with any Sim made by you, it's not restricted by age, gender or humanoid species (yes, even the toddlers can be movie stars too!). Use your imagination, get creative! That’s what this is all about!

Judging Parameters

1. SIM’S APPEARANCE 35 points overall:
Originality 25 points: Does the face sculpt look unique and interesting beyond the regular look of TS3 Sims? Do all of the features (not just one or two) contribute to a unique overall look? Would this Sim stand out from the crowd?

2. IMAGES 25 points overall:
Pose 10 points: Does the chosen pose fit the theme/emotion of the image? Is your Sim using a neutral face expression for his casual/everyday mugshot?
Staging 10 points: Are your Sims at an appropriate distance and angle that shows them clearly? Where props were used, are they fitting to the Sim's character and back-story?
Lighting 5 points: Is the lighting at an appropriate level so that we can see the Sim clearly or does the Sim look too bleached/too dark?

3. WRITE-UP AND PRESENTATION 20 points: Does your written element paint a picture of who this Sim/character is? Is it presented in a way that flows well and is easy to read?

4. CUSTOM CONTENT USED 10 points: Does the used CC fit the theme? Did you used reasonable amount of it in your pictures or your Sim gets lost under it? Note: for the role appropriate look of your Sim you can use any amount of CC, but for the everyday look try to keep it at minimum - no more than 5-7 pieces of CC.

5. RULE ADHERENCE 10 points: Are all rules mentioned in the rules section of the contest overview adhered to?


Each judge will score each entry out of 100. With three judges this means the maximum points you can earn per round is 300.

Round One: Fantasy/Sci-Fi Round 1 scores are HERE! (http://www.modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=4018627&postcount=133)

Warren Bros Film Studio is seeking a new star for their latest fantasy/sci-fi movies! Are your Sims capable of playing wizards, aliens, Jedis or other fantastic heroes or villains? Let's try them out! :)

Round Objective

Your objective is to present them your Sim's portfolio for the role in one of the given movie titles, so make sure your Sim is capable of playing in this kind of movie.
Choose a Sim that you want to join in and do the following:

1. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in casual/everyday look. Nothing fancy, just a regular mugshot in a neutral background with a neutral face expression. Remember - no smiles! The use off CC should be kept at minimum for this picture (5-7 CC pieces max).

2. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in costume/makeup of the character he'll be playing. Neutral background and face expression as with the first screenshot. While the character's appearance is up to you, make sure it fits the movie! CC usage is not limited for this picture.

3. Full body shot of your Sim in the costume/makeup of the character. This is your "promo" shot, you can use creative poses, props and effects. Setting a scene for the background is nice, but not required, you can just use plain background if you like. CC usage is not limited for this picture.

4. Answer the following questions:

- Name and age of the actor.
- Short bio of the actor - 3-5 sentences.
- Short description of the character your Sim is playing - 5-10 sentences. Also, don't forget to mention what movie title you will be using!

Note: Grammar and spelling won't be judged, but try to do your best to make the post easier to read.

Available movie titles

Please choose one from the following:

1. The War of the Robots.
2. Fantasy World.
3. The Magical Adventure.
4. Supernatural.
5. A Bard's Tale
6. Space Wars.
7. Hero Returns.

Title your post with the chosen movie title or add it to the character's image. All of the movie titles are free for your interpretation - this means you can create the character you like. Will it be a hero or a villain? Will he have supernatural powers or will he be just a regular human with an important destiny? Will he succeed in his adventures?
You don't need any EP to make an interesting character, good CC or even a proper CAST'ing can help you transform your Sim into a creature from another world. Remember - imagination is your best friend! :)

Timeline

This round will last for 14 days, longer than other rounds due to the Thanksgiving holiday period in US. It starts at November 16 and ends November 30 one second to midnight GMT.
The countdown for the round is here (http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20121130T235959&p0=136&msg=%22Casting+Call%22+-+Sim+Talent+Contest+Round+1) .

NOTE: If we get all 30 contestants before the Nov 30, the round will be closed sooner and no more entries will be accepted! No place holders - all entries are in once they are posted.

Round Two: Horror/Thriller Round 2 scores are HERE! (http://www.modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=4027299&postcount=194)

Note: I highly recommend that you wait for the scores before starting on your entry. This may help you to improve and possibly get higher scores! :)

The first round was easy - all about magic and robots, but this round requires more intensive execution, because it's all about the action! This time Warren Bros Film Studio experts are looking for a different kind of talent - horror/thriller actors to play in their most blood curdling blockbusters! Not everyone is suitable to play in this kind of movies, so choose your Sim wisely.
Are your Sims ready to be transformed into a monsters, brave soldiers, killers or can they play an innocent horror movie victim convincingly? Either way - bring in your costumes and prepare for the camera! :)

Round Objective

Note: You need to use a different Sim than you used in the first round!

As with the previous round, your objective is to present them your Sim's portfolio for the role in one of the given movie titles, so make sure your Sim is capable of playing in this kind of movie. This round you will need to take all your pictures directly in-game, not in CAS screen!
Choose a Sim that you want to join in and do the following:

1. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in casual/everyday look. Nothing fancy, just a regular mugshot in a neutral background with a neutral face expression, just like you did for the first round. The use off CC should also be kept at minimum (5-7 CC pieces max). You can merge a few angles in a collage, but make sure your image is big enough! The minimum size is 800x600 pixels. No CAS pictures.

2. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in costume/makeup of the character he'll be playing. Neutral background and face expression as with the first screenshot. While the character's appearance is up to you, make sure it fits the movie! CC usage is not limited for this picture. You can also use collages for this picture.

3. Full body shot of your Sim in the costume/makeup of the character. The Sim must be shown in full height! This is your "promo" shot, you can use creative poses, props and effects. Making a scene for the background is nice, but not required, you can just use plain background if you like. You can show other Sims in this picture, but make sure that your main character is the one that draws the attention. CC usage is not limited. Please, keep photoshopping at minimum - don't alter the background or add effects, try to use what you have in game instead.

4. Answer the following questions:

- Name and age of the actor.
- Short bio of the actor - 3-5 sentences.
- Short description of the character your Sim is playing - 5-10 sentences. Also, don't forget to mention what movie title you will be using!

Note: Grammar and spelling won't be judged, but try to do your best to make the post easier to read.
Note2: Please keep your images PG13. This means you can't show an extreme violence in your pictures.

Available movie titles

Please choose one from the following:

1. Darker than Night.
2. Battle Cry.
3. The Silent Hunter.
4. The Sweet Smell of Revenge.
5. The Book of Secrets
6. Operation X.
7. House of Horror.

Title your post with the chosen movie title or add it to the character's image. All of the movie titles are free for your interpretation - this means you can create the character you like. Will it be a hero or a villain? Will it be a monstrous creature or a soldier fighting for his friends? Will he succeed in his adventures?
You don't need any EP to make an interesting character, good CC or even a proper CAST'ing can help you transform your Sim into a monster or a war hero. Remember - imagination is your best friend! :)

Timeline

Note: Due to the scores being late, this round is now extended!

This round will last for 13 days. It starts at November 24 and ends December 6 and one second to midnight GMT.
The countdown for the round is here (http://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20121206T225959&p0=136&msg=%22Casting+Call%22+-+Sim+Talent+Contest+Round+2) .

Round Three: Comedy/Romance

The final round is here! It may seem that this is the easiest movie genre to show your Sim's into, but don't be fooled, as the best comedians say - true emotions are hard to reproduce on stage, so this can be the hardest round of all. This time your Sims will be applying for the most emotional movie category - comedy and romance. You have the biggest choice for your interpretations, it can be either an emotional and heartbreaking drama, a fun and happy love story, an intriguing soap opera, a funny adventure story or anything else you can come up with! 7 movie titles are presented for you to interpret, so do your best for the final round! :)
Lovely faces and honest smiles - this what describes the best actors for this genre.
Can your Sims play love, sadness, happiness, shyness, jealousy or innocence? They can? Alright, bring them in! :D

Round Objective

Note: You need to use different Sim than you used in the first and second rounds!

You know the drill - your objective is to present them your Sim's portfolio for the role in one of the given movie titles, so make sure your Sim is capable of playing in this kind of movie. This round you will need to take all your pictures directly in-game, not in CAS screen!
Choose a Sim that you want to join in and do the following:

1. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in casual/everyday look. Nothing fancy, just a regular mugshot in a neutral background with a neutral face expression, just like you did for the first round. The use off CC should also be kept at minimum (5-7 CC pieces max). You can merge a few angles in a collage, but make sure your image is big enough! The minimum size is 800x600 pixels. No CAS pictures.

2. Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face while in costume/makeup of the character he'll be playing. Neutral background and face expression as with the first screenshot. While the character's appearance is up to you, make sure it fits the movie! CC usage is not limited for this picture. You can also use collages for this picture.

3. Full body shot of your Sim in the costume/makeup of the character. The Sim must be shown in full height! This is your "promo" shot, you can use creative poses, props and effects. Making a scene for the background is nice, but not required, you can just use plain background if you like. You can show other Sims in this picture, but make sure that your main character is the one that draws the attention. CC usage is not limited. Please, keep photoshopping at minimum - don't alter the background or add effects, try to use what you have in game instead.

4. Answer the following questions:

- Name and age of the actor.
- Short bio of the actor - 3-5 sentences.
- Short description of the character your Sim is playing - 5-10 sentences. Also, don't forget to mention what movie title you will be using!

Note: Grammar and spelling won't be judged, but try to do your best to make the post easier to read.

Available movie titles

Please choose one from the following:

1. Once Upon a Time.
2. Crazy Summer Nights.
3. Love and Berries.
4. Hangover in Sunset Valley.
5. Avenue of Broken Hearts.
6. How I Met Your Dad.
7. Spring Breakers.

Title your post with the chosen movie title or add it to the character's image. All of the movie titles are free for your interpretation - this means you can create the character you like. Will it be a sentimental lover or a rebellious comedian? What will be his main adventure? Will the movie have good or bad ending?
You don't need any EP to make an interesting character, good CC or even a proper CAST'ing can help you transform your Sim into a totally different person. Remember - imagination is your best friend! :)

Round 1 counts as your application round.So it's fair on others, you're not allowed to reserve a spot so you just have to submit your entry for Round 1 to sign up. :)

Make sure you read the rules though, the host said "No entry editing after it's linked to the main post" so you'll need to post all parts of your application/round 1 together at the same time.

ETA: Eternila, typically store content is classed the same as stuff pack content as far as MTS is concerned but in this case it shouldn't matter since Elexis said all cc, inc pay is allowed :) I'm sure she'll correct me if I've got it wrong :D

Ah right, silly me :p I decided to pop in and look at this thread right before scuttling off to bed... obviously my brain's already gone >_< I'd imagine the answer's the same but best to wait for El's confirmation :)


ETA: Eileen, you need to post everything it asks you to post where it says "Round Objective", making sure to follow all the rules mentioned throughout the first post. If my sleepy brain is counting correctly you should have two head shots and one full body shot as well as the written bits for objective 4. Best double check before you post ;)

I have a quick question, sorry if it was answered but I just didn't read carefully enough, anyway, are we allowed to tweak our sims a little in CAS fo the other photos that show how they will appear in the movie? Not major changes, just little ones that make them look a little different yet still recognisable.
Also I'm just clarifying, so we make a new sim for each round?
Thanks in advance :)

Question: Is Store content considered "CC"?

No, Store content is not considered "CC", since it's pretty same as SP CC - you have to pay for both, but it's the official EA content.

So we just post our round 1 entry here before the 30th? No applications or anything?

Yes, your round 1 counts as your application. Round 1 is open until November 30 :)

So I just have to post my pictures with my sims bio and everything, and then I'm in?

Yes :) Just make sure you read all the requirements before you submit, since you can't edit your entry after that. Don't rush anything, you have 2 weeks for it :D

You are allowed to change everything, except moving the facial sliders. This means you can change makeup,hair,facial hair, skintone, eyes, clothing and accessories, but you can't tweak the Sim's facial features.
Yes, each round - different Sim. Using same Sim could result in repetitive contest rounds, plus making new Sims adds a little more challenge to the contest in general :)

Hero Returns:
It was 2326, twenty-two years since the first way and the Planet was under attack once again by extraterrestrials, they all knew it would happen again one day. They gathered thousands of volunteers and sent them into space to the front lines in hopes to keep the invaders at bay while they tried to collect their elites and veterans. The story centers around Jessica "Zoom" Walbert who had been a hero to the people during the war of 2304 who had disappeared three years after the first war had ended, but with the return of the beings trying to destroy their planet she decided it was time to come out of hiding. The first scene starts with her walking out of the military facility suited up and ready to head to the ships for the final debriefing before being shot into space.

Emilie Finn had started out as a child actress in commercials and very small parts in TV shows, but her dream was to become a star on the big screen. At age 28 with encouragement from her friends and family she managed to land the lead role as Jessica "Zoom" Walbert in a new Sci-fi movie called Hero Returns. Her ambition to be her best to entertain the moviegoers, made her a hard worker while her energetic, friendly and charismatic personality made her likable by most of the entire film set minus a few.

Before getting into the big screen business, this 25 years old was a full time model and small cameo actress. Teresa then started dating a well-known sci-fi movie screenwriter who helped writing the script for The War of the Robots, and he encouraged her to audition. She originally auditioned for a small role, but apparently she's secretly talented in acting and landed one of the main roles instead.

Arcana Silvercaster
http://i47.tinypic.com/535img.jpg
In a corrupt world dominated with high class cyborgs and robots, there is a long-lasting, ongoing discrimination war between human cyborgs and robots. Robots are treated like slaves by human cyborgs, while human cyborgs are constantly ridiculed and treated rudely by robots for being a human alone. Arcana is the leader of a small rebellion group hoping to overthrow both sides of government and to get equality for both cyborgs and robots. Arcana is a human cyborg, but every other members of her group are expired, rusting, helpless robots. She wishes for equality for them, but of course that's not going to be easy.

Thalia Carson. Aged 21.

A small town girl, Thalia feels completely out of her element when anywhere but where she loves to be. On set is one of those places she loves. It was an accident that led Thalia to her acting career, a joke with her friends who dared her to try out for a movie. While she only got a small part in it, the experience made her want to try again, thus leading to the lead role in Space Wars.

Princess Adhara from the constellation Canis Major, is the intended bride for Emperor Deneb as part of a treaty to stop an ongoing war. When her ship is attacked by a third party, all communication is lost. Knowing that no one would make it in time to save them, Adhara has to figure out her own way out of this.

Valerie Mason
Age: 25 years old

Born and raised in New York, Valerie was dubbed a child prodigy of sorts.
Always dreaming of writing science-fiction novels, she spent her teenage years playing video games and writing fan-fiction.
Originally one of the writers for "Space Wars", Valerie impressed the casting directors with her connection with the main character. She was quickly offered her first role in the film "Space Wars" as the heroine, Space Cadet Raela Vaughn. She had never tried acting before, but decided she was up to the task. Since then she has been seen in soap operas and an assortment of commercials.

http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac270/rebellia/Screenshot-7.png
Space Cadet Raela Vaughn

Cadet Raela Vaughn is the daughter of the galaxies most celebrated military official, Space Commander Charles Vaughn. Always living in the shadow of her father’s name, Raela enlisted in the military at a young age. She rose through the ranks of the military with ease, with the help of her mentor.
Raela is outspoken and compassionate when it comes to the matters she cares about most. Her gentle and trusting nature greatly helped when coaxing the Elders of Planet Goliath into a peace treaty with Earth. Over the years she has gained the trust and respect of many alien races that saw the humans of Earth a threat.
But in the year 3033, ancient robot overlords began their attack on Planet Heaven-089, killing her father and mentor, along with many other military official’s and innocent civilians. With no one to help, she is the galaxies last hope for survival.

Okay, this will be my first contest, so I'm a little nervous ^^; Hopefully I did everything right!:blink:

Meet Waverly Donner, an up-and-coming, young actress. She is 23 years old, but don't let her confidence and style fool you. She hasn't been acting for very long, and this is her first major role!

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41433_121119115402Screenshot-2 (3).jpg

Waverly plays Sharla, a blind, elven priestess, who was abandoned on the step of a temple shortly after her third birthday. She quickly became entangled in a mysterious prophecy regarding the return of a legendary hero. It becomes apparent that Sharla is the hero of old, reincarnated, as her skills with the bow develop, despite her blindness. And soon, the final piece of the prophecy falls into place as a dark evil swoops over the land, seeking to reclaim the kingdom it once ruled. But can Sharla destroy this force once and for all... or will she be fooled by a seemingly friendly face?

Minimogut, for the first two pictures we need to clearly see your Sim's face - the rules say that we need "Close-up frontal picture of your Sim's face", this means you need to take them directly from the front.
It's ok to have a creative angle for the last picture, but the first two require front view of the face. You can add a profile view in a collage as an additional angle, but the front view is required, so please change that :)

Name: Brooklyn Stone
Age: 24 years old



Brooklyn was born in the windy city of Chicago to a hardworking single mother who worked two jobs to support her and her four children. Her mother always dreamed and pushed for her children to excel in school and go on to college but Brooklyn had other plans. Once she finished school with a 4.0 grade point average Brooklyn moved to Hollywood California with her dreams of one day being an actress. Once there she waited tables and cleaned houses for six years before a casting director discovered her and cast this smart, witty, black haired bombshell in the lead role of his film, Space Wars, as the evil villain Queen Xolo of the planet Allegor.

It's the year 2084 and earth and the planet Allegor are locked in a terrifying battle. In 2079 residents of Allegor were disguised and sent to earth to study mankind and their habits, with the ultimate goal being to test their secret formula, Simsay, on unsuspecting humans. The formula was designed to turn the humans into Allegor's dolls and build up an army of humans. But their plan was discovered and they were locked up in test facilities. Angry over the way her people have been tortured by the earthlings Queen Xolo is determined to exterminate the humans and control earth once and for all. But will she succeed?

Although he had appeared in many films before this was his first lead role. He grew up in a small farming community and moved to the city in search of fame and fortune, even though his parents wanted him to take over their ranch. Larry's dream was to be the next Brad Pitt.

The War Of The Robots
When Henry Ales built the 20ft. tall robot known as Vortex his purpose was to be a keeper of the peace, helping those in danger and being a friend to all. Little did Henry realise that Vortex would malfunction and destroy everything in his path. Living in the ruins of what was once a thriving community his goal was to create another force of robots to counter his original, he would have to scavenge, beg, borrow and steal to get the parts he needed without knowing if he would even succeed.


This is my entry. First go at anything like this but I really enjoyed doing it.

Liam Blackstone is a 25 year old man from Chicago. As an orphan he grew up with the streets as his playground. He started getting into trouble until his high school drama teacher saw some potential in him and took him under his wing. Now after a few years and a lot of hard work he's landed his first big break in the role of Alaric, exiled nephew of the evil king Kael. As the lead in Hero Returns Liam couldn't be happier, and has worked hard day and night to make this movie a box office blockbuster.


http://i1088.photobucket.com/albums/i332/naiyasfury/Screenshot-729.jpg



Hero Returns is a story of a young man exiled from his kingdom by his uncle Kael following the death of his father. His father had always been a benevolent ruler and after his death Alaric was poised to take up his father's mantle. Kael had other plans however, and framed Alaric for the murder of their court physician and then had him exiled. Since then Kael has brought the kingdom of Alonna to ruin. He is a greedy king, his arrogance outmatched only by his cruelty. Now years later, a young man who can stand the kingdom's suffering no longer goes in search of the only person he knows who can unite the kingdom against Kael; his best friend Alaric. The exiled prince eventually takes up the mantle of hero and fights against all odds to try and win back his kingdom.

Marla Marzipan, former child star, returns to film for the first time since she began her 6 year hiatus following her last film, Evil Kid. Marzipan was quoted at the time as saying "I'm hoping to get in some me time, you know? Go to university,live my life out of the spotlight... and hopefully get too old to be type cast as psychotic little girls who want to take over the world."

http://i47.tinypic.com/b7i61y.jpg

Marzipan's new film, War of the Robots is the story of a psychotic woman who wants to take over the world, Dr. Professor Sciencestein, PhD. A once-acclaimed scientist in the feild of robotics as well as every other scientific field that have nothing to do with robots, Dr. Professor fell from grace because of her never ending quest to build doombots. She now plots her revenge by waging a never ending quest to build even more doombots. But things take a turn when Dr. Professor uncovers another scientist's plot to also take over the world using slightly better doombots. Now Dr. Professor must team up with a cast of wacky lovable characters to save the planet from hostile takeover...by building EVEN MORE DOOMBOTS!!

(Hello! For my entry I decided to intentionally think up the worst film and actor imaginable, lol.)
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1335440-PrincessPopoff1RE.jpg
Now, Rella did not have a conventional life. Growing-up in an orphanage and becoming a travelling hippie for most of her life, as well as being not right in the brain, the last place she thought she’d end up is on a movie set! As one day by a sick twist of fate, she was found by notoriously insane low-budget filmmaker, Dazro Devine, who was scouting for actors to be in his new surrealist flick -- The Magical Adventure.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1335441-PrincessPopoff2RE.jpg Rella, seen here posing for a mugshot during a break in filming. Rella’s costume was made from two potato sacks and a pack of plastic flowers.

The bizarre plot featured a bubble-blowing traffic warden that never fitted-in with all the other traffic wardens, because as it turns out she was the princess of a magical kingdom known as Scatholm, a kingdom which consisted of nothing more than a single forest and a Primark.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1335376-PrincessPopoff3.jpg Ironically, the most expensive thing in this picture was the blue screen, which they later found out they didn't have enough money to actually make use of.

Scatholm would be threatened by the evil Doctor Backlick, who threatened to break the Lovechuck Dam to flood the forests and drown all the magical chipmunks! It’s up to the newly returned Princess Popoff and her talking rat-faced animal sidekicks to take back the forest! Rella was perfect for the part of the doey-eyed and grotesque looking Princess Popoff, who was meant to be, like, really beautiful on the inside or something like that.

In the end, shoestring-budget special effects and acting that a corpse could surpass meant the film received a seething negative reception, although in later years it would be universally regarded as a classic.

(Please keep in mind that pictures that show Rella's make-up and her on-set and everything were deliberately made to look as cheap and nasty as possible, because I thought it would be interesting to have a film that had no budget. Although I’m somewhat regretting it now because everything looks so rubbish. :| )

Introducing Ralph Numbers, 28, who made his big break on the indie screen with roles as crazed anti-heroes seeking redemption in movies such as Ghost Dunes and The Battle for History. Now he is moving up from small town indie films in Moonlight Falls to the full length motion picture A Bard’s Tale, starring as The Pirate Bard King.

The Pirate Bard King is seeking the ruins of a long lost treasure, trying to get to prevent the Royal Navy from getting to it first. His skill with magic has protected the crew so far, but in order to gain the treasure before the navy he will have to choose between wealth and ale, and his love interest inside the Royal Navy’s most secure prison – her father’s keep! Swashbuckling action, spell slinging excitement, and that popcorn smell you can never get off your fingers come to a theater near you as A Bard’s Tale comes to life!

Donna Matrix was waiting tables in Bridgeport when a director approached her for a new film. "It shoots at my house", he'd said, "come alone". When she arrived it quickly became apparent that this was a low budget movie - so low in fact, as to not include money for costumes. Donna left the set of "Snow white and the seven positions" as quickly as she could. As luck would have it, on the street outside she was approached by a talent scout again, but fortunately this turned out to be a legitimate. Space Wars was Donna's first film (at least the first that wasn't shot on some creeps' mobile phone) and the 21 year old actress looks set to go far. She enjoys Pina Colada parties for one, animal husbandry and playing golf on the floors of drained swimming pools.

Henry Hawthorne

Age: 38

Henry Hawthorne grew up in the quaint farming community of Riverview as one of nine siblings, but despite a loving family and a happy, carefree childhood he longed to escape his hometown and see the world. So, on his eighteenth birthday, he packed up his belongings, grabbed the keys to his pickup truck, and took off, ready to experience life to the fullest. He wound up in the big city of Bridgeport, working as a busboy at the local diner and struggling to make ends meet. One day, however, his fortune changed as Alan Stanley, a big shot movie director with a keen eye for talent, walked into the restaurant and “discovered” him. Henry went on to star in several big budget blockbuster hits, and now he’s a show business veteran with two Simmy awards under his belt and a long list of directors clamoring for him to star in their movies.

Rowan

As one of the most feared generals in the infamously ruthless and corrupt Arathakian army, Rowan has known nothing but bloodshed and warfare since the tender age of sixteen. However, upon meeting a mysterious stranger in the battlefield one night, his life as a decorated and revered war hero comes crashing down around him. The White Mage, as she refers to herself, appears before the veteran soldier and instructs him to find the legendary Jewel of the Lost Sea and return it to the exiled princess of Thessaly, Lady Amélie. When Rowan refuses, however, the infuriated mage marks him with the scar of the fallen angel Samael, thus giving him two choices- Face mutiny and almost certain death at the hands of his own army or abandon his position and take up her quest, for in Arathak the scar of Samael is the scar of a traitor, the most hated and feared sign in all of the empire.

Seeing no other alternative, Rowan reluctantly abandons his position that very night to embark on the long and arduous journey. He encounters numerous perils on his path to finding the jewel, but along the way he meets and befriends several mythical creatures including a playful and mischievous water sprite, a beautiful but manipulative tree nymph, and a moody, temperamental dragon. However, even with the help of his magical new comrades, Rowan struggles to overcome his dark and violent past. Will he be able to obtain the elusive stone and return the princess to her rightful place on the throne of Thessaly, or will his quest prove futile?

The Magical Adventure opens this Friday at a theater near you!

I probably shouldn't have picked a costume that was so ordinary because there's not much to choose between the everyday shot and the movie shot. But the movie was the first thing I thought of and something more exotic just wouldn't have fit. With the spots filling up so quickly, I didn't want to risk missing out since I wouldn't be able to do anything else for another day :)

It is a children's fantasy rather than adult. I hope that's alright.

Name: Alyse Finn
Age: 11
Bio: Alyse was started in advertisements by her mother as a 4 year old, and she took to the cameras with alacrity. She played bit parts in many television shows until her break came in The Secret Life of Dani Blue. Fantasy World is her attempted first foray onto the big screen. Roger Dampier, her adult co-actor from The Secret Life, suggested her for audition, citing her steady head and maturity made her a joy to work with, unlike some child stars. Alyse is just excited to be auditioning for a role that is actually her own age for once.

Emma
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c157/nylmat/Sims/Casting%20Call/EmmaAlyseFinn.jpg

When new teacher Harold Dawson arrives at Emma's school, the teachers and parents all view him as strict but fair. No one wants to listen to the kids, even as the best students are suddenly being reduced to tears and getting detention for simply being happy.

Emma, dyslexic and struggling to cope but always imaginative, becomes a favourite target of Mr Dawson. When one day he pushes too far and turns physical, Emma finds herself somehow transported to a land she thought she'd imagined. This wonderful place is full of colour and light and happiness. She can play and laugh without fear. But underneath its brightness, Emma soon finds a creeping evil, and she realises Mr Dawson is managing to spread his evil in that world as well as hers.

In Fantasy World Emma discovers sometimes to save a world, you need to first stand up for yourself.

[Sorry if I mess up - I've never done this before! (:]
This is Aphrodite Oaklings. Growing up, she would always follow her mother around to photo-shoots - by the time she turned a young adult, she already knew what she wanted to be. A star. She wanted to bask in the limelight - at times, she acted nothing less than a diva. Fortunately, however, she had the power to back up her claims - after all, she was a young and charismatic natural born performer. She is 25 years old.

When her manager came to her with the script for Fantasy World, she knew this was the role for her. She could remember watching the first version of this movie as a young girl. She had fallen in love with one of the supporting characters, a fairy named Meadow. Meadow was a character full of spunk and extremely eccentric. Halfway through the movie, she interacts with the main characters and becomes allies with them against the Evils. At the end of the movie, she sacrifices herself for her allies.

Cailin Maher, age twenty, is of Irish descent and was born into a very close-knit family. Cailin grew up in rural Ireland and knew how to plant, grow, and sow vegetables before she was eight. When she entered secondary school, Cailin took an interest to the school’s stage in the auditorium. Instantly, she became immersed in the hobby of acting and auditioned for several school shows. Soon, she was making her way to small town stardom with all her lead roles. When it was her last year at secondary school, before college, Cailin was greeted with a plethora of talent agents at her very last performance. Smitten with her acting skill and her physical design, the talent agents booked her to be in various movies once she graduated.

Fantasy World

Cailin Maher plays Breanna O’Hare, a young girl who mistakes an ancient book of hymns for her book report book. Once home, Breanna opens the book and is instantly transported to a fantasy world where survival is of the fittest. When a group of rangers stumble upon the lost girl, they take her in and train her to become a fine ranger. Soon, the fantasy world is on the brink of war and Breanna is the prophesized sacrifice the Imperial Queens need to dominate all races. Determined to break her fantasy fate, Breanna tackles trial after trial to get the book of hymns back and to return to her home life.

SimmieGoddie your entry is now linked in the main post :) Also the judges will judge only 3 pictures, so I assume you want to receive the scores for the creative shot that is taken from closer distance, since the one that's zoomed out doesn't really let us see the Sim's details.

Alright guys - only one spot left! If megan_perry106 and Boydy won't update their entries in the next 24 hours, I will let someone else to fill their spots, since I can't link them as they are now.

EDIT:

Oops, I just noticed that liujiaxie's pictures are also way smaller than the required size. liujiaxie, pleas update your entry with big enough pictures (800x600 pixels or at leas with one of the dimensions big enough), before I could link your entry in the main post.

Christen Locke is a 23 year old woman who has always aspired to become a world famous actress. From an early age, she relished the time she spent watching sims make characters come to life on the silver screen. Her supportive parents moved to Bridgeport when she was 10 to help her pursue this goal. With the boom on the industry, Christen was lucky to land walk on roles in day time TV but never got her big break...until now.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41481_121121234451FlaeniaPrentus.jpg

Flaenia Prentus was just your average tavern wench. She served mead and told stories to the local miners who came to quench their thirsts. Until, one day, a wandering bard came to her tavern and listened to her tales. He sat, in awe, of the yarns she spun with the tavern hanging on her every word. He knew that he must appropriate her gift for his own for no other way would he win the favor of the king. A festival was drawing near and all bards were welcome to weave their tales and have a bestowal of gold coins gifted to them. Antus Avidius had no chance to win on his own. At dawn's kiss, he stole Flaenia from her quarters and set off for Senarel, capital city of his kingdom. This is Flaenia's story; a tale of deception, thievery, and love. This is A Bard's Tale.

If Boydy won't update their entry with needed changes in the next 24 hours, I will let someone else to fill this spot. So if you missed your turn to enter, keep an eye on the contest! The Round 1 will end when we will have the changes OR a new entry in case if we don't get the changes in time.

This is not an official entry and does not need to be judged or added to the contestant list. If nobody objects, I was hoping to just play along for fun without having to take up a space :p


Trev McKewan, 32

Bio: Trev has dreamt of being a big shot actor his whole life but after being told time and time again that his face was more suited to radio work than tv his confidence was severely shaken. He eventually succumbed to his parents pleas to “do something useful” with his life rather than “wasting it on flights of fancy” and became a qualified accountant. He was on the verge of a promotion in his dull office job when he saw the poster: a big movie studio was looking for a “real looking” Scottish lad (like himself!) to play one of Scotland’s most famous characters. He missed the interview for that promotion because he was auditioning but this is his second chance and there was no way he was gonna let others stand in his way this time!!

Character: The movie is a re-telling of Tam O’Shanter, narrated by Scotland’s best loved Bard, Robert Burns (played by Billy Connelly). Tam is a drunk who spends all night boozing in the local pub and leering over women with his drinking buddies. He’d rather do this than go back home to his nagging wife...until one night, as he’s drunkenly riding past the old church and graveyard, he sees a beautiful, scantily clad woman dancing with others. He stops to enjoy the sight but his lecherous ways soon give away that he’s peeping and in an instant things take a nasty turn.

I was just wondering that since we're allowed a collage for the regular mugshot if we're allowed to use one as an expressive facial in the collage? Such as one neutral frontal and one a bit more expressive?

Yes, you can use any expression in a collage, but make sure that the neutral shot is present and clearly visible in it. Also, since all pictures became smaller when combined, keep the size as big as you can :)

I'm sorry for the delay, if some of you will need more time for Round 2 because of this, please PM me and will extend the timeline for it.

Daisy Brook - 28
She may not look it, but Daisy is a total horror maniac. Her dream was to become a make-up artist, but that didn't work out. "Apparently people don't like blood or scars on their children's faces at a birthday party". So she decided to go into acting. With her good looks and crazy ways she got to star in all kinds of horrors right away. She got a huge roll in the next horror film :The Smell of Sweet Revenge, playing a abandoned doll (Lulu) seeking revenge on her owner...

http://i1326.photobucket.com/albums/u645/Neelie217/page4.jpg

The Smell of Sweet Revenge.
Maggie a 9 year old girl bought a life sized doll seeking a friend. She named her Lulu. They did everything together tee parties, dress up even sleepovers. They where best friends until Maggie turned 16. Seeking real friends and falling in love with boys Maggie started to abandon Lulu. At the age of 18 Maggie was moving out of her parents house. While packing, she dropped Lulu, cracking her face. Tired of the doll, Maggie threw her out. Feeling sad and betrayed Lulu laid on the trash heap. One night a thunder storm approached...A thunder blot filled the sky, hitting Lulu, filling her with energy. With her new ability to move as she pleases she has decided to get revenge...Maggie was going to pay for what she has done. Lulu will stop at nothing to get her revenge and she will kill anyone who gets in her way.

Jasmine Harrington

Age: 27 years old

Jasmine was born in Argentina with her single parent, her mother Isabella. Most of her free time she spent playing video games and watching old movies, mainly from the horror genre. She speaks fluently English and Spanish, which helped her in getting the role of the main antagonist in The Sweet Smell of Revenge

Sarena
No, I don't have an obsession for names starting with 'S' :rofl:

Movie: The Sweet Smell of Revenge

Sarena is the leader of the devil cult called Demonis. The Demonis are known for murdering innocent villagers and hiding the traces with roses. It was well known that the leader drank the blood of the people the witches have murdered.
This massacre continued until a brave woman called Amelia locked the leader of the devilish cult in a coffin and trapped it under layers of earth crust. That was the last activity of the Demonis, until after many and many years, an archaeologist discovered Sarena's grave and let her out of her isolator from the world.
Now she seeks revenge in Amelia's grand grandchild.

Apple Jackson
22

:report: Apple grew up on a farm in Riverview with her father, Ted, and her little sister Sunny. She had a happy childhood repairing cars with her dad and raising her sister pretty much single-handedly after he died in a motorcycle accident when she was 16. Apple is a good girl who is still quite innocent, she helps out local charities, works as a mechanic to support her sister and loves to street race. Apple sees acting as another fun way to earn money so that she can send Sunny to university as she studied drama and engineering when she went and enjoyed it thoroughly, she stars in her first movie this fall after a lot of theater work. Ted Jackson named his little girl Apple because of her little, round, chubby face and bright green eyes. :anime:


Movie Title - Operation X
Character - APMM/147 (Amaranth-Pink Mus-Musculus)

Professor Cray Greyson of Twinbrook had a dark secret in his basement; hundreds of rats, with cannibalistic tendencies, in containment units that he gave drugs. :wtf:
The reason for this strange habit you ask...heartbreak as Cray's only child Fione had had enough of her father's workaholic attitude and strict parenting and so ran away to Bridgeport to live with her mother who left years before.
Greyson missed his daughter and turned insane deciding he would create the perfect serum to turn his daughter's abandoned mouse into a human - this was Operation X.
APMM/147 was a beautiful albino house mouse with bright pink eyes, glossy snow white fur and a brilliant, genius mind; he believed she could read and that she was the most perfect specimen so testing began on the rats and many of them died along the way.
It's the present day and Amaranth has awoke to the house in flames and several huge mutated rats fleeing into the night to attack the town's people, her creator having vanished and a letter stuck to her containment unit, the letter containing her full name, Cray's research findings and a simple sentence calling her his second child.
Cray Greyson did not realise that once the serum worked on one specimen it would work on all of the rest of the surviving ones. :faceslap:
Amaranth now has purpose - to save Twinbrook, round up the murderous rats and find the professor but can this innocent little mouse handle human emotions and the horror the world has to offer a mutant?
Amaranth has some help along the way in the form of Fione Greyson who returns to town, with her boyfriend Jake Matthews, who has read about her father's disappearance but are the two really her allies or could they be her bloody end?

Does a zombie film count as horror or thriller?

25th Nov 2012, 7:47 PM
@ wizkid770 Elexis posted this in the rules for this round:
Full body shot of your Sim in the costume/makeup of the character. The Sim must be shown in full height! This is your "promo" shot, you can use creative poses, props and effects. Making a scene for the background is nice, but not required, you can just use plain background if you like. You can show other Sims in this picture, but make sure that your main character is the one that draws the attention. CC usage is not limited. Please, keep photoshopping at minimum - don't alter the background or add effects, try to use what you have in game instead.

@ minimogut I would assume zombies are fine as they are part of the horror genre but we'd better hear it from Elexis first :D

Elexis
25th Nov 2012, 8:41 PM
wizkid770, yes, you can have another Sim in your 3rd picture as long as it's clear which Sim is your main character.

minimogut, technically zombies do count as horror, but it really depends on how you interpret it (I've seen some comedies with zombies too). You can make a horror film even from a child's bed story, so your interpretation is what really matters here.

daniandan, your pictures look a little squished, are they supposed to look like that?

Meet Naomi Bower, age 27.
She's been acting since a young age, getting her start in theater, commercials and radio broadcasting. As she got older, she started to rebel against the little angel she typecast as. As a result, she was more than happy to get a new agent - one who actually understood what she wanted. So far, she is best known for her role as the insane antagonist in the "Puzzle" movie trilogy.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41566_121125145931Drake.jpg

Now, Naomi plays as "Drake" in the newest thriller, "Operation X." As a government agent gone rogue in the face of a worldwide catastrophe, Drake wanted nothing better than to disappear. Just another nameless corpse. That is, until said corpses began to rise again, feasting upon the flesh of the living. Now, Drake - determined to survive against the hordes of undead and the government agents, sent to destroy her - must utilize her old training in an attempt to survive alongside a ragtag band of rather questionable allies.

Delano is always type cast as the bad guy and actually being a vampire doesn't help. He hopes one day to land a role to show his softer side, such as saving kittens instead of eating them which he had to do for a previous role...... He also likes rabbits.

The hunters become the hunted in The Silent Hunter. Starring Zomboy as 'the hunter'. An ancient creature has rose in Bridgeport, vampires are on the menu. Its not long before 'The silent hunter' gets sloppy and the undead start to take notice. Can the silent hunter stay silent long enough?

Ian Evans - 32 - started as a small town boy with big dreams. He was acting through high school and paid for his college degree in art by preforming on stage. After graduation, he decided to follow his dream and strike out for the big city selling sculptures and acting in small stage productions until he got a role on NCIS as Abby's stalker. Ian's skill at being an emotionally manipulative character drew the attention of the network execs, who landed him in a TV movie role as a scorned-lover-turned-stalker that eventually gained the attention of the movie studios. Now he is on the big screen in his first feature-length film, The Book Of Secrets.

Ian Evans stars as Alexander, a noble by birth that disgraced his family after turning to women and wine. Alexander lost everything in gambling debts and brothels, and robbed and murdered by night to reclaim what he believed was stolen from him through medieval streets in the height of the Simsburgh Dynasty. His greed and malice knows no equal. But Alexander's victims have struck back from beyond the grave, luring him into the haunted towers of Simenstein Castle where he murdered his first victim. With werewolves and a bloodthirsty demon after him, the only hope to survive is to reach The Book Of Secrets and destroy the book before the castle ghosts destroy him.
The Book of Secrets holds the key, are you ready to see if the book can change a monster or devour it?

Leo Harkers' baby face and slender physique has been in hot demand for many years now and he is an established star among the Bridgeport celebrity elite. He is unmarried but in a steady relationship with Nathan Bartlett, host of the popular Gameshow "where's my box?" They hope to adopt although Nathan has his fingers crossed that an alien will abduct him and put one in there for free.

"Quicker than quicksilver, Darker than night,
blackest of hearts but eyes of pure bright,
The face of a boy but the pain of a man,
the curse of forever, that poor peter pan"

His latest project is a re-imagining of Peter pan with an interesting twist. What if Peter Pan - the boy who never grows old - had been a vampire? "Darker than night" Follows Wendy Darling in 18th century London as she becomes seduced by the dark visitor at her window, and then the terror of a demonic boys' obsessive love. Will she ever be free? will she escape with her life? Leo Harker as the vampire Peter has to be seen to be believed.

Pamela Moon 17
http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a601/azuresims/Screenshot-13.jpg

Pamela had dreamt of being an actress for as long as she could remember, growing up on the city gave her the perfect opportunity. Landing her first small role at only 8 years old by 17 she had plenty of experience. She also changed her name to giver her a better chance seeing as Moon had a better ring to it than Dung.

The Book Of Secrets
http://i1286.photobucket.com/albums/a601/azuresims/Screenshot-28.jpg

Rosie Baxter had been possessed by the demon of 27 sweep drive at the age of 16 after reading aloud a poem from the book that housed it. She was now destined to terrorise family after family that move in against her will, as she gets weaker the demon gets stronger. Will the next family be able to get to the book of secrets and figure out how free her? or will they only be devoured too eventually causing the demon to take over Rosie's body forever with dire consequences.

She’s very pretty. You described her as being full of energy , I would have liked to have seen that energy come through in your pictures. I deducted a point on the rule adherence due to small picture size. Looking forward to see what you can create!

The Sim is really pretty, but I do think she looks better as the fantasy character than her normal self. Her eyes are a tad too big. I understand that people find this pretty, but it makes her look more doll like than human. I do love the character shots. They are very beautiful and the chosen CC suits her perfectly in my opinion.

Your Sim is very cute and looks very energetic. However more uniqueness beyond the usual look of TS3 Sims in facial sculpts is required. With just very slight and minor adjustments to nose size, eye and jaw definition, cheekbone shape she could fit this criteria. The lighting and background in both the close-ups were very beautiful and natural. The lighting in the full body shot has to be brighter and could benefit from the use of more lights especially with the use of black background. Although the pose you choose for the full body shot was strong, I felt you could have used a more expressive poses with her face in the foreground. Based on story the use of a sword would be nice. Two points were taken off for rule adherence. The movie title in the full body shot covered her body. Next time you should put the title in a blank area not to obstruct from your lovely Sim. And her bio was only 2 sentences, not the minimum required 3.

Beautiful sim, I loved her coloring. The pictures were nice and clear just make sure your sim is the focal point in the shot. Liked the angle you achieved in the last pic, nicely done. All in all a great start!

A really beautiful sim. Her backstory is detailed in such a way that I believe it. She looks good as an Aquarian, but I think her pose picture is just a bit too stiff. I would have liked to see it even more dramatic.

Your sim is very pretty especially her eyes. I would recommend putting her hair in a flirty ponytail to not obstruct & to show off her subtle facial sculpt. If were to bring her inner eye corners up, and adjust or change her mouth and eyebrows, you would have a truly stunning sim! The background, expression, and lighting in your close up pictures are pretty and well done overall. The lighting was just a *little* harsh on her features, it would be more flattering if you just slightingly softer lighting by moving the light directly in front of her face. That way you eliminate the dark shadows underneath her nose and over her lips. The scenery with use of plants of your full body shot is very beautiful land really sets the tone of the story. You lost some points in staging because of the angle of the picture and her feet were obstructed in the water. If you straighten out he camera, move it left and slightly closer, then move it the camera down slightly, it would make for a more interesting picture. With eyes like your sims eye contact with the audience would be very powerful. I felt you could have done more with the full body pose to something with more elegant or stronger to fit the theme of your story. If just based on he close-up picture of your sim in character I wouldn’t know who suppose to be, she wouldn’t fit the role, more CC could have been used.

I liked the hair you chose for your sim to star in her role, that went a long way into making her fit into the role of returning hero. Think of how a movie set works, how they create and stage a set with lighting and well placed props. Lighting can go a long way in creating atmosphere. I deducted a point in rule adherence for picture size. Nice start.

Sadly your pose picture is a bit too dark to see much of your sim in her costume. I also don’t find the backround very appealing, and maybe you could have given her a more interesting pose? When that is said I really liked your writing and I think the sim is cute. I also loved the hair you picked out for her in the movie. It suits the part well.

Your CASTing and use of CC was amazing. Your use of textures with the skin and make-up, you can tell carefully chosen. And both outfits you used are very fitting for her role. Your story and bio was great. You followed the rules well. Next time it would be better if you took the close-ups in game instead of CAS. So I can accurately judge the originality of your sim. Your sim is not unique or original in facial sculpt. I would suggest using MTS creator guidelines under ‘quality” for “other” sims as a guideline to see what you would need for your sim to fit this criteria. In the full body shot your sim is too far away from the camera. The background & pose does not fit with theme or story you presented. In the promo shot, its best to use a pose that adds purpose to the scene and seems intentional.

A natural beauty! She has a strength that is conveyed in her features and with the cc used she could have easily been lost but she was able to wear it and it not wear her. The stage you set went nicely with the story you created. Well done.

The lighting in your photos are perfect. I love the look on your sim both in her everyday shot and as a character. The details in the movie shot are really good as you can still focus on the main character even if the background is really detailed.

Everything is perfect: the lighting, the scene, poses, cc used, etc. However, I found the movie description a bit hard to follow and I had to reread it a few times to correctly understand the story. This is probably due to sentence structure and order of the sentences; the general flow needs working on. You have only one or two features, on your sim that is unique in facial sculpt, like the mouth & nose, but you need with all of the features (not just one or two) contributing to a unique overall look. For originality it is very important she stand out from a crowd, especially your fellow contestants. I would suggest playing more he jaw, cheeks, and eye sliders for a good result.

Your sim is a cutie. I didn’t exactly get the vibe of her being a princess, just that she was an alien. Your sim got a little lost with the background in the third pic. I’m looking forward to what you can give us! A good start!

I can definately see Thalia as a small town girl. Her costume and makeup for the movie looks nice and suitable for the title. I maybe wish that you would have used a bit more details in the posing photo as I feel the sci-fi genre is all about machines and technology. You should also brighten up your pictures a bit. They are just a bit too dark now.

Thalia’s features perfectly suit an alien and yet make for a very interesting and unique looking humanoid sim. There is no doubt she would stand out from a crowd!
Your close-ups are good but they could be little bit better lit. The full body shot also needs to be better lit, however I like the dramatic shadows it and how it frames the scene. These shadows are created because you used a single ceiling light behind her creating a spotlight, that’s really cool. In order to better light the scene without loosing that spotlight I would suggest playing with the use of floor lights & lamps. The border you used slightly cut of her feet. On set you could have used a white floor to match the walls of what is suppose to be the walls of a spaceship. The pose does not really suit the tone of the picture or the story behind it, perhaps use of more action poses is needed, like running toward the camera for example.

She is a lovely sim. You gave her a life state of a genie but only talked about her being an elven queen I wasn’t exactly sure where the genie part fit in with the story. Nice job on the third the shot. Solid entry!

I don’t think your character would have needed to be a superhero from before, as the movie part will eventually make her into whatever you would like. I would have prefer a more realistic backstory seeing your sim’s look. The movie description is really good though. Your sim is pretty, but she doesn’t look very Chinese to me. Maybe half? The elf costume is lovely and very thoroughly done and I really like the staging!

As a human she doesn’t seem that unique but her transformation to an “Elevin Queen” she looks absolutely stunning! The pixie hair cut flatters and shows off her subtle bone structure and the crown nested in her hair was a nice touch. It is the red skin and coloring that really makes her stand out! With the sims 3, it is understandable the limitations on creating a true Asian & ethnic likeness, however, it takes a lot more than just the rotation of the eye slider upwards and giving her black hair. Fortunately, if you continue to work on this likeness, it will most certainly result in a more unique sim, even if she still doesn’t look Asian. The scene and props used add interest to picture and the fog was nice touch. Unfortunately, noticed in starch contrast to the amazing setting you constructed, the pose chosen does not connect or fit with the scene at all. Partly this was due to it being an awkward high fashion model pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could be easily solved by letting her interacting or posing with her props or the setting you painstakingly set up. Even if she were simply warming her hands by the fire it would have seemed more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim).

Nice sim! You managed to give her a tomboy-esque look while still managing to make her girly! I believe she could save her planet. Nice job!

I immediately noticed her face. She looks very unique! You’ve done quite a good job with the costume and posing in the movie picture. It might be too many people in the shot only. Maybe the man and the other woman could be further in the back. I also wish the picture wasn’t turned that many degrees. It takes a bit of attention from the main actress.

A near perfect score! She looks like Miranda from the mass effect series but judging from her companion in the third picture you already knew that ;) Brown hair suits her more and I like almost coy subtle expression in all 3 pictures .I liked your attention to detail from the cas textures you used to making sure both actors both starring shooting down a robot. I don’t understand why the picture is turned sideways. IMO you could still kept viewer interest by keeping it straight on.

Good job on your first time out! You conveyed her blindness really well. I just would have never known she was elven if not for your story. Nice job on the story looking forward to your next entry!

I don’t find the original sim to be the most interesting one I’ve seen, but I do think you have made her into a really interesting character. I especially love the detail about her being blind. The photo of her face with her costume on should have a more neutral backround, taken inside so you get better lighting. The last one with her in the movie is really lovely. I like the mood and the colors a lot.

Besides her distinctive nose, your sim is not that unique from the regular TS3 sims. Further work is needed on the eye, eye size, and facial structure. In the first close up, the camera is a little too close and it is unflattering. The CC chosen, the lighting, and your set are all great. I would suggest add slightly more scrubs or trees in the blank empty space beside the left of the sim in the third picture .The bowed arrow is blocking your sims face, if you use the “moveobjects on” cheat and turn her right on 45 degree angle or you could rotate the camera angle more left and take the picture. The picture would have slightly greater impact if you slightly zoom in more without cutting off her full body. The fog was a nice touch. Kudos to you choosing a female hero that’s is blind, original and empowering! Yay breaking stereotypes :D

You have a lovely sim and I enjoyed her story. The lighting, while being bright made your end shot a little sterile looking. I liked the color combinations you chose for your sim but felt she got a little lost amongst it. Great start!

The sim looks very lovely. I would pick a more neutral eye color for the everyday look the next time though. She’s got that bad girl look on her which I really think suits the part as a action heroess. Her costume is cool and so is her pose. Try toning down the hair color only. Too bright sometimes make it look to cartoonish.

There were slight inconsistencies with your sim’s bio. Your age time line you gave for sim doesn’t add up: by the time she had four kids , finished university (getting a BA I assume), and worked for six years after, she would be a lot older than twenty four years old.
Your sim needs a tad bit more sculpting. You could start by raising her lower eyelid height and readjusting her upper eyelid height accordingly, making her nose bigger and wider, lower her eye socket height, give her slightly more cheekbone curve, and lowering her brows slightly. I like the outfit & hair color you choose for her alien costume, its nice combination of colors. However, the blue shades you CASTed on her hair gun, buttons, and make-up are far too to bright and remove he detail of the objects. It would have been also better if you casted the was and furniture to match. A pick a consistent color scheme for your CASTing throughout the whole scene not just one or two objects They seem just placed in the scene without any connection to each other.
The pose you had could have connected better to scene as well because she just seems to be boldly standing in a clutter of objects. Partly this was due to it being an awkward high fashion model pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could be easily solved by letting her interacting or posing with her props or the setting you painstakingly set up.
The blood was nice touch. But where did it come from? Why is there? Fallen enemies behind her would have given the picture more impact and purpose.

Really good sim! You made the expected unexpected and brought "A Bards Tale" into the 21st century! Loved your take on it and through the photos you made me believe it. Wonderful job!

It’s nice to see a sim without the perfectly proportional nose for once. It gives the sim more uniqueness. You’ve taken some lovely photos, but the two close up photos should probably look more neutral to see her features more clearly. The lighting and movie pose is lovely! So is the description you’ve made for the movie.

It was hard to judge the originality of your sim because how you took both close- up. In the first picture, using that side-glance alters the shape of one’s eyes, so it makes it hard to access them. And in the second picture her hand is obstructing her face. In addition, it was hard to view in both pictures having her head sideways. Her nose is large but unique, I would suggest lowering her nose definition slightly so the ends of her nose blend better into the skin. Also adjust the eyebrow curve to make it less straight (this would be more harmonious with the rest other features) and overall work on the sculpting the jaw and chin more. I think its really creative that you’re the only one that took inspiration from using phantoms and poetry, makes for a really beautiful story that I wouldn’t mind it turning into a movie in real life! The third picture really suits the story, however, I did have to take points off for not taking a full body picture of your sim as required by the rules. Regardless, always remember to never cut off a person feet or hands in a picture. I love the idea behind the picture. I can see you were going for a strange girl - weird vibe. I would suggest to try to get direct eye contact with the viewer, and play around with using a light beneath her to emulate a flashlight under the face look. I like the use of writing on he walls and your use of skin in for when she was in character.

The hair and costume you chose was cute, she sort of reminded me of a mum and was in-keeping with your flora and fauna story. Good job, very cute!

I like that you have made a child sim as it’s not that common. I do know it’s a bit harder to make them unique, but I think you have done a good job here. I think she looks more unique as her normal self though. Her backstory is really well written and you seem to have put a lot of effort in to it. Some things you have to work on are posing and lighting. The frontal photo could be closer up and show less body and your movie shot is too ”dragged”. It’s also a bit dark.

Yay our first child star! She is very cute and very unique facial sculpt for a child sim It is a little controversial to put a child in a killing role. IMO she is too young is appropriate for adult story you provided. When choosing do that you must approach with caution and care when handling delicate situations where a child is forced to take on adult situations in story lines. Usually there is a focus on their innocence and a journey of mental and emotional lessons learned throughout the story, this can also involve a mentor or a sidekick friend. This is all to reinforce to the viewer/reader to see that the child is growing up before your eyes and not too fast. Also your story had no musical components like she said she desired to highlight her musical talent, funniness, or tomboyish charm. If you incorporated any one her talents into the story, it would have lightened the mood and gave the story more depth and reason for her actions to base on, thus giving context and making it more appropriate. The overall lighting could be brighter in all three pictures especially the last because of the dark background. Your close ups are backlit and could be more zoomed in. I suggest using more lights and putting the light source in directly in front, beside or behind your sim, not directly above. I don’t understand what’s going on in the third picture, is she flying? Flying where? What does it have to do with the theme or story? If nobody told the viewer the story would they be able to know what the movie is about? Will props help? These are questions to consider next time when creating a scenic/or promotional picture. A tip is to next time choose the setting of your story, planet Fauna, as a backdrop or background in your picture. In the third picture each pose you choose should have some overall purpose in the scene your making. The outfit you with the leaf embroidery is very good but could have been CASTed a brighter color to show up better against a black background. You got major points for your fearlessness to go outside the box and your originality.

Pretty sim her eyes really drew me in! I liked how you used the custom content to show us how she was aging, good job in bringing the story into your pictures. She did have to compete a little with other stuff in the photo and got a little lost in it. Nicely done!

First of all this is a lovely sim. I like her backstory and the movie plot aswell. Lighting is good, but the movie shot could be a bit lighter. I think the darkness sets the theme well, but it is a bit hard to notice the details.

I love how your presentation is so neat and tidy. You can tell how everything from colors to prop position was chosen so carefully and intently. Your sim is very nice and pretty, but I find she is missing something, although I can’t put my finger on what. Perhaps her features are too perfect and symmetrical. Just choose to make one alteration of one feature or two features a bit imperfect and that just might make her go from ordinary from extraordinary. Don’t touch her face shape though, its lovely. An adult or elder woman would be more fitting for the role and story your trying to tell, especially in full costume, this more apparent. Instead of giving her grey hair, why not use an older woman.
The setting and the moody lighting were executed perfectly. The scenery behind the windows adds further quirky interest to the picture, for example I noticed how both windows sunsets don’t match in color. You have managed to compose one of those types of scenes, that every time you look at it you can find something different. I would suggest adding some more furniture like a table or cauldron to he right over to fill the empty space. It would be slightly more interesting if you turn her slightly more towards the camera, so we can see her “ghouly” expression. If you do that you might have to add more lights on the left of her to lit her face more.
Your story fits the tittle of your movie so well, good job!

Good job on your first time out. The pictures can tell your story. Play with the camera and lighting, make sure the sim is the focal point of photo. Nice work.

It’s nice to see a male sim in work. His face sculpting is very good. He didn’t really drag much of my attention as a movie character. I think the movie shot is a bit too small of him and you can’t really ”feel” him. I do love the setting around him though. It suits the plot of the movie. Also there is a bit too much shadow in his frontal pictures. In the next round you might want to try putting some lights all around to make that go away.

Yay our first male contestant! Your sim could be more unique if you reduced jaw width slightly, raised his nose bridge height and widened it, and worked some more on his eyes & eyebrows. It’s really just his eyes and eyebrows that don’t look much different than the usually TS3 sims and that is his downfall. I could see a little Brad Pitt resemblance The two close-pictures were great and also commendable lighting! The third picture, the lighting from outside is bit unflattering, but its not your fault it’s the TS3 lighting engine. My advice is to take picture at sunset or sunrise on sims 24 hr day to get the best lighting possible. I could see where you were going to set up your scene with props. You should never reveal your pose player breaks the immersion of the viewer connecting with your picture. The pose you chose did not connect or fit with the scene at all. Partly this was due to it being an plain standing pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could have been easily solved by letting him interacting or posing with the props or setting you painstakingly set up. Even if he was simply sitting on a work bench while looking at the viewer or working on his tool bench it would have seemed more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim). In general, you need more action poses, poses where he doing something. The picture could be zoomed in a tad closer while not cutting off his body. I suggest for your set you create a enclosed space, whether it an outside alley way with a brick wall and chain-link fence, an hectic junkyard filled with scrap metal and robot parts, or inside his robot workshop, any would have helped the scene and add further interest to the picture. IMO it would be better if you choose to use an inside set because you have better and easier access to better lighting.

He fit the role perfectly! I can totally see him as an aging action star. There were little triangular pieces around his jawline, not sure why those happened other than that he is a very interesting sim. The use of custom content was nicely done. Nice job!

A really unique sim. Also you get a plus in the book for making an older guy. You nailed this part. I wish you would have written more about him and the movie he is in though. A couple of words more about the plot would make it easier to judge the character. The movie shot is cool, but I would skip the lady or put her more in the backround as she steals a bit focus from the guy.

How original to be only contestant to use an elder in role much less, a role where a lot of action is potentially involved! From an “survival of the fittest” man would assume he not up for the test as elder sim, but I’m sure he’ll prove them wrong, which would make for an very interesting action hero story. He is a very handsome male sim now; I can only imagine when he was younger. I think he’s still got it ;) His facial sculpt is sculpted to max, I don’t think I can ask for him to look anymore unique. Your attention to details like cave man body hair is a nice touch. Your lighting is good but it could be a bit better. Especially in regards to your close-up pictures, which look a little backlit. Play around with the use of more lights or using floor laps beside or in front of him. I like your tongue in cheek description. You would have had an even more near perfect score but unfortunately I had to take points off for only writing 3 sentences, your missing like 8 for the requirement by the rules.

Liked your sim nice job on him, he has a lovely mouth. It would have been interesting to know how he got those scars. All in all a solid job!

The look on this sim is really amazing. It’s easy to see how much effort you have put into him. One of my favourites so far. He looks really good in his role aswell. Very epic. The lighting in the movie shot makes some part of the picture a tad blurry. Maybe some lamps in front of the character will do the trick the next time. I do love the posing though!

Your use of CC is amazing! Especially your CASTing with his costume and make-up are really awesome! The pores, scars, blood, blue eyes, long hair, facial hair, color of hooded costume-they all do fit harmonious and perfectly to an epic hero- warrior theme. That being said noticed in starch contrast to the amazing make-up and costume you chose, I feel he doesn’t really fit the role. This is probably mostly in part due to his innocent, almost child like eyes. Because of that I cannot take him seriously as a ruthless bloodshed warrior as you intended because your story didn’t necessarily paint him as a unlikely or anti – hero. This is mostly due to his facial sculpt but if you & defined sculpted some areas of his face a little bit more that could asily be addressed. Tweaks like defining his jaw more slightly, defining his nose a little, lowering his brows and making them straighter, making his eye apex more centered instead of all the way left, etc.
The lighting in the first two close-ups pictures are really good and adds to the overall mood, however, that same lighting impact was not in your 3rd promo shot. The lighting in the 3rd picture is way too dark but its’ not your fault it’s the TS3 lighting engine outside. My advice is to take picture at sunset or sunrise on sims 24 hr day to get the best lighting possible. Also play around with the use of outdoor lighting.
The pose you chose was very strong but a change of scenery is needed. It could have been in autumn where the snow isn’t cutting off his feet. Next time I suggest centering him in the center of the picture and take the picture from below, looking Up: Taking pictures from below your subject (your sim) puts your viewer in an inferior position to the subject. This is excellent if you want to portray a sense of power - place the camera as if you are kneeling before the subject. For portraying movie stars, divas, kings, etc., placing the camera just a bit below your sim can make your character seem larger than life.

I really like your sim’s unique style and her name is funny. Hehe. I don’t find her face sculpt particulary interesting, but when you put her in her costume she looks really good and interesting. The movie shot is one of my favourites in this round! The first head shot should have been more frontal.

Interesting sim! I liked the last shot, but thought the sim blended in too much, so I did deduct a point in rule adherence for the every day shot. Job well done!

In your promotional shot the lighting, props, costume all fit together to create one interesting and cohesive scene, well done! With grey being a dominant color scheme in your picture, you chose to have her blend in with colors of scene, which was cool and intriguing artistic choice. Grey however, can get a bit boring, so perhaps play with using lighting to add dramatic contours to her face and body to add even more interest top the scene. I like her bio, she seems like a grounded individual, unlike like some grown up child stars in real life. A little more work needs to be done on sculpting the eyes from the regular look of the TS3 sims. The first close- up should have been facing forward so I could see more of her facial structure.

Loved your Princess Popoff! Lighting in your every day shot could have been better. I would have liked to have been able to see your sim. I deducted points in rule adherence for picture size and her age was not stated. Nicely done!

Your writing really makes me laugh, which is a good thing! I find it funny and interesting that you are not trying to make the ”perfect” sim, but rather want to take a twist on it! The part about the bluescreen is such a funny detail. Some things you might need to think of are the picture size and lighting. The first frontal photo is a bit too dark and your pictures are too small. Remember this for next round. You also just need only 3 pictures here.

Congrats for creating a very quirky character and story, both combine to very entertaining. Even more kudos to not being afraid to use unconventional lead and narrative. IMO the make-up, props and the sim you used doesn’t look as bad as you think, in fact quite the opposite. In contrast to such an awesome descriptions, there is an expectation to have a sim just as original to match. I under stand she is intentionally not suppose to be the perfect fit for the part, like “crazy eyes” instead of authentically “ doe eyes”, but I feel you have gone to slightly further extremes with her facial sculpt.
The first close-up is too dark; it needs brighter lighting. Overall all lighting in pictures could be improved by using more lights. Capitalsims have ‘ film set studio stuff’ including functional lights that you could incorporate to light in your scene without looking out of place.
I liked how you chose to go in a behind he scenes viewpoint, using the back ground like a green screen. However you lost points for not following the rules by not including a full body shot in your promotional shot and using more than 3 pictures, which made it confusing on he one I was suppose to Judge. Remember to make sure you never cut off a person’s feet when taking a picture.
You’re a very creative and strong and story teller, this is surely a strength I hope to continue to see in next rounds.

I really liked your sim but would have liked to have seen him better. I did deduct points in rule adherence for picture size and his age was not stated. Play with the lighting, that can really convey a mood. Nice job.

Since your sim has got such a characteristic hair color I think it would have been better to change it for his movie character. He looks a bit too much like the same guy in a different suit, which rarely happens in sci-fi movies. Your movie shot is also very dark, which brings it down a bit. I do like the sim’ s sculpting though and the guy looks like he has a personality of his own, which is good.

Because you took your picture in CAS instead of in game it’s hard to accurately judge the originality of your sim. This is even more problematic because it seems you used two different face shapes for each close-up thus would be two different sims and I would need to take off two points. Nevertheless I can see your sim could have has beginnings of a unique facial sculpt. More work needs be done tweaks and sculpting the eye brows, and jaw overall. Your 3rd promotional shot is too dark, you should use a lot more lights and turn them on all of them to full brightness. If you are going to take pictures inside, you should always take them with the walls up.
You should be more mindful how you place objects in your scene, them seem to be a randomly place. This makes the picture lose overall focus. It a shame because all the objects in your scene or interesting and if placed more precisely would have had a large impact. Good use of costumes and story.

I would have loved to have been able to see your sim better. The pictures were dark, remember to take your pictures with the “C” button in tab mode. Your story while a good one did not seem to fit "A Bards Tale" for me. I did take off a point in rule adherence for picture size.

I really like your writing and the concept of the story. I don’t think there’s enough magical pirates out there. Your pictures are sadly a bit too dark and the movie shot is simply too small. The sim is quite good looking, so I wish we would have seen him closer up there. Remember this for next time and you will definitely make it better!

Your sim doesn’t go much past the average look of TS3 sims; he is not quite there, but with some more work on his facial sculpt he can be. For starters you could define his jaw more, change eye apex position, and give him cheekbone more cheek and open his lower eyelid height slightly more.
You never explained why he is blue. I am assuming that is because he is a genie – pirate, you put not mention of that in your story, which is a shame because I am sure that it would have added more depth.
It was hard to accurately judge the originality of your sim because your close-ups are taken in CAS instead in game. You combined your two close-up pictures into one, giving only 2 pictures overall instead of the required three pictures so I will have to take points off because of that.
All your pictures are too dark, making in hard to see your sim in close-ups as well as the promotional shot. You need to adjust your graphical settings and/or use better and more lights in your scene I have to also take points away for using pictures that are too small than the requirement which again makes it hard for me to see the detail in your sim and the potential lovely set you created. You could have also taken the picture slightly closer. The pose you chose did not really connect with the scene. I know he doing some type of magical action because of your description and the effects but if it wasn’t for that I wouldn’t able to tell just by looking that picture.
Next time choose a better or more obvious action based magic animation, so it will have more purpose in the scene or storyline. Thus allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim). In general, you need more action poses, poses where he doing something. The picture could be zoomed in a tad closer while not cutting off his body. If he was on a deck of ship it would be more fitting to story IMO. The scene you created uses a good series of props and your story was good.

Loved your sim and when you gave him the dark hair I thought of Dr. Sexy from an episode in Supernatural! I completely believed him in this role he fit it perfectly! Job well done!

Wow, what a handsome and unique guy. I love how you can turn him from a straight working guy to a knight having him look perfect both ways. Your pictures are clear and the lighting is perfect. To nitpick a bit I would have chosen even a more interesting pose for your next round. You seem to have an eye for details so I don’t think that would be much of a problem.

Very good on sculpting his face, he stands out amongst TS3 pudding Sims. Couldn’t decide on what mug shot to use in the first close-up, right? I personally prefer him without glasses. You CASTed perfectly and your lighting was good in the first two pictures, but the third promotional shot is a bit too dark, more outdoor lights are needed. I like the city you used a backdrop (very beautiful) and I also commend you on the poses you chose in the scene matches and fits with your heroic story very well.

Cute sim, I would have liked to have been able to see her better with a full on face shot of her in her everyday shot. I deducted points in rule adherence for the everyday shot and picture size. Good job.

The sim looks a bit like one of the random sims you can chose from when you start the game. Try tweaking the sculpt some more the next time. However the costume and movie shot are amazing. I really love how you’ve made the shot into a movie poster. It’s maybe a bit too much photoshop only. Her head shots could be a bit closer up of her face, and more frontal.

Your sim doesn’t seem that different or stand out than the regular look of the default sims 3 sims. Use MTS ‘s creator ‘other’ sims upload guidelines as a reference to fit his criteria. In the first close-up would be easier to asses the originality of your sim if she was facing forward. Your lighting is excellent. The make-up, costumes, clothes, cc and other CASTing you did is exceptional. You hit the mark with your promotional picture 100%, it look just like a movie poster, amazing job! Unfortunately I had to take a point of for you photo-shopping the light saber. You did not write a “Short description of the character your Sim is playing - 5-10 sentences” as required by the rules so I had to take 5 points off. If you had made your sim’s facial sculpt more unique and followed the rules more closely you have has a perfect score!

The sim was cute. I liked your story and would have liked you to bring in some element of the dark force you talked about. Nice job!

Emma doesn’t have the most noticeable and unique look, but her description is really well made. Same goes for the movie plot, and I don’t think it’s a problem with her costume as it really suits the theme of the movie well. It reminds me of something similar to Alice in Wonderland. A movie I would have liked to watch.

I love the theme you have chosen for your movie storyline, very "Alice in Wonderland". I commend you for choosing to use a child and dyslexic child at that, it is that unconventionality that brings positive awareness and depth to your story. As a child sim she is very cute, however, it makes it very hard to assess the originality of your sim further because the two close-ups you chose to use was taken in CAS, not in game.
Your lighting could be improved in your 3rd picture by playing around the use of more outdoor lights. The lighting from outside is bit unflattering, but its not your fault it’s the TS3 lighting engine. My advice is to take picture at sunset or sunrise on sims 24 hr day to get the best lighting possible.
Your costume you picked was fine and fitting. Your use of props and plants in scenery is really good. I like how those lunar lake trees look like huge dandelions, making her look like she was shrunken tiny magically, further adding to the Alice in wonderland theme. That also put the viewer on equal footing, which aids make your viewer feel as if they are in the scene, and provides a greater sense of intimacy, which is what you succeeded to do I wish you had rotated forward towards the camera, so we could have seen her face and increased this impact. I can’t figure out what that red spot in the picture is supposed to be. What is it?

Cute sim. I felt she got lost a bit in the custom content. I didn’t get the feeling she could save her world, she gave off a more evil vibe like she would destroy it rather than save it. I liked the staging in the third shot. It looked like a world in chaos. I did deduct points in rule adherence due to picture size and the fact that you did not create the sim. Nice work.

Remember to only have one promo shot when the rules say so. I do love the effects and backgrounds in the ones you’ve got though. I don’t like the pose very much on the other hand. It looks more like a model job than a movie to me. Remember to make the right pose for the right setting. Also add a bit more lighting to your close up photos.

If she is born in game usually she won’t be the most unique sim because they use the game’s pudding perimeters. She has very interesting and beautiful coloring in the first close-up. I can see with few minor changes like moving the the eye apex right, rotating he depth more forward and slightly more cheekbone bone curve, she could be a really unique and beautiful sim. The scene and props used add interest to picture and the fog was nice touch. Unfortunately, noticed in starch contrast to the amazing setting you constructed, the pose chosen does not connect or fit with the scene at all. Partly this was due to it being an awkward high fashion model pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could be easily solved by letting her interacting or posing with her props or the setting you painstakingly set up. Even if were to stand with her hand boldly on her hips would have seemed more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim). Your story is great and your typical incident where a superhero would use their powers. I had to take a point away for using 4 pictures instead of the 3 that a required as per the rules. I love her outfits, and colors you chose through very vivid and pretty. The lighting in the promotional picture is great, the close-ups, however, are a bit too back lit. They need more lights beside and in front of her.

Great sim! Fit the role really well. You did a good job in making her fit the role, you made me believe it through your pictures. I did take off a point in rule adherence for the small picture size. Well done!

A unique sim with some imperfectionism. I like it! Not every actress has to look perfectly beautiful on the outside. Your sim also looks even more unique in her costume. The movie shot could be a bit bigger so that we could see it better though, and maybe the sword from the King Arthur myth is too much of a cliche prop to use?

Those people in high school were wrong, she looks very pretty and feminine to me. Her look for her character suits and flatters her best. You were going a weird - quirky indie actress looks for your first picture to match the story and you have succeeded. Yay for unconventional stories addressing gender role stereotypes.
Interesting use of face dimple sliders to great a structure faced. A near perfect score, I couldn’t have ask for any better picture or description, Amazing job!

Cute sim. I think you could have brought out the diva in her through your pictures a bit more. Staging and lighting can go a long way to portray what you want. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for the small picture size.

You forgot to pick a movie title, which is a part of the contest. I also think your description of the character and movie is a bit too short and lacks some depth. The sim is pretty, but not really unique I would say. She looks like one of the random in-game sims. I would also try to take a pose shot without a huddle over the sims head. I might be a bit harsh here, but the contest has many unique sims and you would have to put more work in to the next round. I know you can do it!

She is not unique from the regular look of the TS3 sims, but she is very pretty and not mention cute! Next time work focus on sculpting the jaw, eyes, and eyebrows more. She reminds me of princess peach in the dress you choose for her. In the third promotional picture, the pose you chose did not connect or fit with the scene at all. Partly this was due to it being an plain standing pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could have been easily solved by letting her interact or pose with the props or setting you painstakingly set up. Even you turned her around to simply “gussy up” in front of the mirror and you took the picture behind her( it would be “mirror on the wall”) it would have seemed more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim).
Besides her being dressed as princess, the story didn’t really tell the sorry you gave. Never photograph your sim thought bubbles, unless they add to story as symbol comic speech bubble. Which it didn’t here because you it cut off half way.Your bio and story description are too short and thus did not follow the rules, so unfortunately I had to take points off.
Excellent lighting. Great job for first try, follow those suggestions and I’m sure you’ll blow us away next round.

Your sim is cute. The story helped with the last picture, I wouldn’t have known she was sacrificing herself. Nice job for your first time out.

I love your movie shot and your sim’s costume. This picture is really clear and the size is good. The frontal shots should be a tad lighter. I like your sim description, but you lack a bit of information about the movie plot. Next time you could also try to sculpt your sim’s face further. A good start.

Your sim does not look very different than the regular default Sims 3 sims. Use MTS creator “other” sim upload guidelines and the provided tutorial in first as a reference to fit this criteria. A really good story and use of CC. I love the pose you chose for her promotional picture, it very emotive and thus adds major impact and interest to your scene! The ground, fence, trees really detract from the scene props and objects. Your use of fog is great I just wish you used more fog to hide the platform and ground underneath her, so it didn’t break viewer immersion. Also it would be more impactful if you used a blank (preferable ambient) background or backdrop.
Perhaps you could have added more sparkly magical effects around her from Sims 3 objects or the Sims 3 Supernatural creature powers. Although, I love the composition of colors in the promotional picture, especially from the tree and the water: very soft and beautiful. Great outfits choices of well, very fitting.
Your lighting could be better in all 3 pictures, especially the close-ups. This would be easily fixed by adding more lights.

She is a cute sim. I liked your third shot, but I did have to take a point off in rule adherence for the photoshopping. Nice start.

The sim looks more unique as the character than in the everyday photo. I think her cheeks are a bit too long and too far from the mouth and I would have picked some other, more natural brows. I like her costume. It makes her look like a classic fantasy/medieval heroess. I would have skipped the collage in the movie shot, as it looks too photoshoped and you would really only need one good picture of her to show the essence of the movie.

Your costume you picked was fine and fitting. Very good choices and variety of action poses, however in your collage a few poses could have been narrowed down the poses you chose to two of your best ones, particularity the middle ones could be removed. I would have also like to see more your sims face in the promotional pose shots or you zoomed in closer for each shot would have helped as well.

Loved your sim. She is very unique and interesting to look at. I think she fit the role and I really loved the story and believed in her as a tavern wench. Over all very well done!

I love that you have made a more ”masculine” and strong jawed woman. This makes her stick out and look very unique. I especially like her movie look! You can easily see that this is a woman a guy wont fool with and how she could be one of them at the tavern she works in. You might want to make your sim more in focus on your next movie shot. I think there’s too much people in front, while your character dissapears a bit in the back.

Very unique sim, her stand out features combine very harmoniously to make one attractive yet very interesting sim. Your lighting is great in both your close-ups, but in your promotional picture it could be better. Use more lights and you could play with lighting layouts to get more moody lighting into your scene. You’re the only contestant who has used borders appropriately to add to the picture not subtract from it. Because the extras are in the foreground and objects are in the background, while your subject (your sim) is in the middle ground, it separates the viewer from the subject, which is fine, but I thought with her being the star of the movie more focus should be put on her. Never the less you set of scene with use of props, people and furniture wonderfully and really matches your story; it is as if you took a screen cap from the fictional movie.

It was really hard to tell if your sim was original, the pictures unfortunately were very pixelated. The third picture was cool, but I felt your sim got lost in it. Good job.

For the next round don’t resize photos, it only makes them blurry. Try to use "C" to capture them better. When that has been said, I like your movie plot and the movie character. You might want to have just one photo and not a collage in the next round though. It’s enough. I do like your shots and the details in them, they suit the theme very well.

Please don't just take a small pic and size it up in your graphics program to get bigger pics - this only makes the dimensions larger but doesn't add any detail and just gives you a blurry, pixellated larger pic, not a nice clear one. It is clear you did this for first close- up picture.
You sim would be more unique if you shaped his eyes more and designed his jaw more. I noticed the geometric lines you used as accents from the lines in hair to lines on the wall. The color scheme of aqua and black you chose are very tron-esque and put take away from the picture because of its matchy-matchiness. The CASTing you chose for your sim in character clash too much and don’t compliment each other. Also they blend your sim too much into the scene and he tends to disappear, which is what you want to avoid. The brown floorboards board takes away from the picture.
Your lighting is very good. The pose you chose did not connect or fit with the scene at all. Partly this was due to it being an plain standing pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. Your set is very bare; you need to add more elements to your scene. And him being in that sphere, how does that illustrate the story what is he doing? Your going in the right direction by using animations that interact with objects in your scene, but chose actions that seem more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim).
In general, you need more action poses, poses where he doing something purposeful to the storyline, basically acting out the story. He is an actor after all.

Your sim is unique. Be careful with that, you could end up with something not believable. The custom content helped me believe the sim in that role. Your sim got a little upstaged by that adorable alien in the third shot. Make sure your sim is the focal of your shots. Good job.

Interesting look on your sim. Very unique. He might just look a bit too unrealistic for my taste. Like he is already a movie character before he puts his costume on. The yellow figure takes a bit too much focus off the main character on the movie shot. Be aware of this. I do love the funny characters you’ve made though!

I'm sure it was not your intention to black face your sim. This was unfortunately the effect I noticed you created by using that robber face mask. Fortunately, this can be easily fix by increasing your graphical settings found in options, set sim detail to very high, when taking pictures so textures don’t render dirty looking and pixelated.
Judging the originality of your sim seemed to be a bit controversial for me initially, because the extremeness of your sims features left me asking “is this sim unique “or is he making “a freakishly weird face with a huge nose, just for weirdness sake. I decided since you took a very high and fearless risk optimizing the use of sliders and there is some intentional harmony to his face, you should be rewarded for your courageous efforts. He is unique. I would just suggest moving up his brows a tad. Keep in mind you might be in for a surprise after looking at him with increased graphical detail. If favor overtly stylized cartoony look you can use "Team fortress" characters as inspiration, as their features tend to translate well onto Sims 3 faces.
You could use more outdoor lights in the third picture because of the dark colors and background. You also need more props and objects in your scene besides your neat little Martian sidekick and the car. Good use of action poses.

Thanks for the really helpful and great feedback!
I understand what you mean about putting her into a role that could be considered "adult" and I will admit that the story was a little a rushed due to me panicking that I would not get a spot in the contestants.
I thought the last picture might have been a little dark and the reason the last picture being stretched was because I resized it without locking aspect ratio by accident ^^

The judges' feedback on my character was really helpful and also made me realize I was massively subconciously channelling Mara Wilson for my actress. I'm trying to pay more attention to my face sculpting this time around, though its admittedly a weak point of mine. Sims I make fall into either the pudding bin or the fugly bin. I love them anyway, but getting the look I want and not falling victim to the fug is hard.

Thanks for the feedback!

Very helpful feedback; I'm glad I waited for it before pushing through with my next round. (And for the question - the red is actually an evil spirit (as in ghost hunter career) in escape mode. It does look rather splodge like). I need to remember to look at the pics on my second monitor, since it's darker and probably more standard (my first is on specific gaming settings).

I'm not usually a sim maker, so this is lots of fun! Though having to take pictures in game makes me a little sad because my sims look nice and detailed in CAS and a blurred, discoloured mess in game :(

Natsuri West is a 20 year old Japan native. Growing up in Japan wasn't easy, especially since she was only half Japanese. Acting has always been her passion, and she stuck with it through college even though her parents wanted her to get a degree in a something more "civilized". She's best known for her striking face and unique hairstyles. It's rumored that when asked to cut her hair for her role as Tori Kimura in Operation X, she promptly took an electric hair trimmer and shaved the hair off half her head!

It's the year 2015 in the city of New York and a new evil has hit the streets. The Dragon's Fist Gang has taken over most of the city, and has the police and citizens alike in constant terror. Amidst all the chaos is Tori Kimura, a young and blood thirsty cop. She's undercover and working her way up the ranks of Dragon's Fist, for what the precinct has dubbed "Operation X". Tori's goal is to get to the gang's elusive leader "Raven" and take him down. Tori has other reasons for accepting this job however. The man known as "Raven" killed her brother, and Tori has vowed vengeance. This young and ruthless cop will stop at nothing for her revenge, killing anything and anyone who gets in her way...

Nicole Summers, age twenty-three, is a kind, caring, and gentle young woman. She grew up in northern Pennsylvania, only an hour away from city life. Nicole's first plan of action for when she grew up was to be a pastry chef, her love of cooking feeding the wish. Later, she changed it to master in film, awestruck with finality of films and theatres. Deciding to go into directing, Nicole went to film school in New York. After working since she was eighteen, she was offered a paid internship with a world famous director on a new movie. She was set to be the director's assistant and a set hand. On the day for shooting for one of the scenes, one of the actors quit, leaving them without a victim. With no time to cast another actress, the director put Nicole on screen, getting her into costume and make-up.

Operation X

"Operation X" brings the myth of the Minotaur and the Labyrinth of ancient Greek mythology to life. A secret government agency charged with creating military traps to protect official buildings, builds a giant maze in front of a top secret government facility and houses a monstrous, lab-created beast. It is requested from the head of the department to have it tested to see who will survive it. Taking on the challenge, the agency kidnaps several different people to survive the maze with the beast inside. The plan soon becomes known as Operation X, the X being a play on the X rating on movies. One of the characters is teenager, Trina Wallis, who is coming home from a date and is kidnapped by the government. She wakes up trapped in the Labyrinth and is scared to death. She becomes aware that there are other people with her as she hears screams and roars. Trina is a small part with ad-libbed lines and she is one of the first to die with the main protagonist by her side. She is trapped against a wall in one of the first Labyrinth scenes and receives several hits to the face from the beast before the protagonist shows up, but he is useless as Trina is punctured in the chest with the beast's long, large nails.

You shouldn't alter the background in Photoshop, unless you are just adding a border, logo or text :) It doesn't matter what color is your border, so you can go creative with that instead.

The way contests typically work for multi-rounds is that in the application round (in this case Round 1), contestants apply by submitting an entry. Once the deadline comes around or the maximum allowance of contestants is reached, the duration of the contest is closed to new participants. The contestants who submitted an application are "locked in" as contestants for the remainder of the contest and those who didn't get a chance to apply must watch and wait for a new contest to enter.

I'm sorry that you missed your opportunity to join this one but MTS contests have been picking up in recent months so hopefully it won't be too long until the next one comes around for you to enter!

Sierra Peterson

Sierra Peterson is an aspiring journalist living in the lower parts of Bridgeport. The movie opens with her receiving a call confirming her application for a small newspaper printed on the outskirts of town. Her first task is to write an interesting story for the front page of the newspaper, she is given a deadline of a week and begins to find something to write about. After days of searching for something to write about she witnesses a smoking green object streak across the sky and crash somewhere near the abandoned warehouses near the old port.

The next scene is shown as being filmed on Sierra's cell phone. She drives to the landing point of the object and finds it in an old lot radiating an ominous green light. Sierra nervously approaches the object and nudges it with her foot. A few seconds pass and the strange object bursts emitting a thick black fog. The fog envelops Sierra and she lets out an agonizing scream as she is possessed by the creature inside the rock. Her skin turns an odd scaly green colour and her eyes turn hollow and black. The strange creature controls Sierra and jumps from human to human devouring their souls and wiping out entire cities at a time.

Darker Than Night is an action packed, thrilling from start to end horror. Directer James Strathman has used creative camera angles and special effects to great a genuinely legendary horror movie.

Sophia is a 21 years old college student/full-time nerd/total plain Jane from a small town somewhere near Appaloosa Plains. She's been a huge fan of the novel series "House of Horrors" since she could remember and was thrilled to find out that it's going to be a movie soon. She scoured the official movie website and found out about a series of web contests with the chance of an audition for a starring role being the prize. Well, she won, and when she auditioned, the directors were amazed by how similar she is in personality with the main character (with her weird sense of humor nobody really gets, awkward personality, tendency to laugh at her own jokes, you get the gist), and that's how she landed the starring role.

Madame Alaiyna Vista
http://i45.tinypic.com/2jbs5dy.jpg
"Madame" Alaiyna Vista is the notorious owner of the Vista Cottage, better known as House of Horrors, since 1731 until today. Nobody knows what creature this madame is. Some say she is a witch who is able to extend her lifespan. Some say she is an immortal vampire. Some say she's a ghost or one of them "undead creatures". Some say she's just a figment of our imagination and doesn't exist at all. Nobody knows, because there's not a single person who has ever seen her in flesh and blood (theoretically), and even if some people did get lucky and got to arrive at House of Horrors just in time to see the madame, they never return.
What the public knows about this madame, however, is that she's insane. She kidnaps and kills people for whatever reason. She also makes strange experiments and tests them on people she kidnaps. Sometimes, she performs strange rituals in which she kills people while singing strange songs. And she does this all in her house, the Vista Cottage, or most people would call House of Horrors.

Elyse Glass
Age : 36

Jane Elyse Glass was born in Bridgeport to Marie and William Glass. She was the youngest of six, and a surprise to the couple who thought they were passed the time of having children. She was always a slightly troubled child who felt alone and often rebelled against her parents, school and made friends in the wrong places. Though she always dreamed of being a movie star, she managed to land a few roles before her substance abuse took over her life, especially after the death of her parents. Many years later after a long battle to get clean with support of her family and finding a better choice of friends, she was able to land a role in the horror/thriller, House of Horror.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v300/LilRye/GinaCollan.jpg

House of Horror
Starring: Elyse Glass as Gina Collan
Abigail Trim as Silvia Collan


It was the beginning of Spring, the flowers beginning to bloom just in time for Silvia Collan's upcoming 12th birthday. The day arrived slowly but surely and all her friends and family were there to celebrate though as time passed throughout the day everyone started noticing the lack of her parents, worry and anxiety high in the air when police showed up at her home to inform her of her parents early but quick death in a car accident.

Two week later after she was given time to mourn, hold the funeral and pack her things she was moved to her Aunt Gina's House, her father’s youngest sister, a place she had only visited a few times when she was younger. As each birthday and death anniversary passed she noticed her aunt behaving increasingly strange, it wasn't until her 16th birthday she decided to explore the basement after hearing strange noises coming from it, upon the last step she was frozen with terror. What horrors did this house hold?

Gina Collan was an unmarried woman living in the old country house her parents once owned before their mysterious death plagued the small town of Riverwood. Many of the townsfolk did not trust Gina and the older folks often told stories to the younger generations of the woman being a witch. She was indeed crazy, more so than the town knew. How exactly did her niece fit into her House of Horror? Just what was she planning?

No one in the whole history of Pleasantview never guessed where the bodies from the cementery disappeared. And no one ever guessed why the zombifying epidemic spreaded so fast...

The scores were a huge help and I really took into consideration what you guys said (especially about not making things so matchy-matchy lol I admit I went a little overboard in the first round xD) and tried to improve this round :) So, here's my round 2 entry:

Name: Bridgette Monsoon
Age: 20

Bridgette was always the shy girl who had prefered to stay home and read rather than go out and party with her friends. One day while at the mall a casting director was holding an open casting call where he was looking for a young, sweet faced actress to play the lead role of a new horror flick. Bridgette's best friend dared her to enter and she agreed if only to shut her friend up. But Bridgette never expected to be chosen and flown out to Hidden Springs where acting debut began!

In the movie The Sweet Smell of Revenge, Bridgette plays Mallory Dark, a deceased scorned bride who is out to exact revenge on her killers. Once a beautiful, happy young bride Mallory is poisoned on her wedding day and dies at the alter. Everyone is shocked and no one knows who the killer could be. Three weeks after Mallory's death her sister Emily has began dating Mallory's fiance, Lucas, and soon they become engaged. No one see's the dark secret the couple are hiding. On Emily's wedding day Mallory comes back from the dead to reveal the truth of who killed her, the two people she trusted most in the world. And she won't stop until she ends them both. Revenge is sweet, afterall.

Cameron Wilder
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c157/nylmat/Sims/Casting%20Call/CamWilder.jpg

Name: Cameron Wilder
Age: 37
Bio: When injured in the line of duty and granted leave from the force for a year, Cam's sister Catherine persuaded him to take part in her community theatre group to take his mind off the long recovery. That year gave Cam a chance to realise he needed some changes in his life, and it was a short hop from theatre to full time acting. Despite his old injury, Cam insists on doing his own stunts.

With Darker Than Night, director Marco Del Piero continues his move from slasher flicks into more serious thriller territory, and Cam brings some much needed gravity to the role, his second under Del Piero. "Cam's got a good head for authenticity," Del Piero states in interview. "I remember in The 25th Hour [Simmy award winner] we did a scene in a blood splattered room. Cam walked in, took one look, and started laughing. I'd gravitated back to B-grade horror with stupidly unrealistic amounts of gore."

Michael Tassos
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c157/nylmat/Sims/Casting%20Call/MichaelCamWilder.jpg

Michael Tassos appears to be a normal man. He has it all: well paid job, beautiful wife, adorable daughter. But everybody has a past and Michael is no exception. Most people in his new, clean cut world don't even realise it's possible to sink as low as he's been.

Meeting Lauren and having Mia changed everything for him.

But when someone uses his original name, ready to call in an old debt, Michael reacts without thinking, taking advantage of a secluded back street in the dark of night. No one in his new world would shoot an unconscious man in the head with his own gun. None of them would calmly wipe their hands clean and pull their jacket back on to hide the stains on their shirt. Michael regrets, but with blood once again staining his hands, is regret enough?

Because he will do anything to keep his secrets, even if it means turning on Lauren and Mia when they skirt too close to the truth, for Michael is no stranger to killing those he loves.

Vivian Abbott

Age: 22

As the daughter of the famous actress Elizabeth Abbott, Vivian has been surrounded by movie stars her whole life. She had a few minor roles in some of her mother’s films as a toddler, but her first big break came at the age of twelve when the vibrant and talented young actress was cast as the lead in an epic trilogy of movies based on a fantasy book series about the human daughter of an ancient Greek god. Ever since then, her career has been red hot, but she hopes to break through the child star stereotype by portraying the sexy and sarcastic character Genevieve in The Silent Hunter.

http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/0/7/5/9/6/9/MTS_Buckley-1338400-VivianAbbott2.jpg

Genevieve Sinclair

In the aftermath of the Second World War, chaos and confusion dominate the European landscape, and dozens of dangerous war criminals remain at large, hiding amidst the devastation. As one of the CIA’s most brilliant and cunning agents, Genevieve Sinclair has been tasked with the job of hunting down two of the top Nazi generals and stopping them from selling their secret weapons designs on the black market. Using her smooth charm and quick wits, she must go behind enemy lines and befriend the Nazis in an attempt to gain their trust and steal their plans. Along the way, she joins forces with another spy, the mysterious and alluring agent from Britain, Edward Moore, and together they work their way into the company of the ex-Nazi military elite. As the pair gets closer to their goal, however, their working relationship takes a far more intimate turn, culminating in a passionate and steamy romance. But when Genevieve suffers a minor flesh wound in a shootout at their hotel one night, it becomes apparent that Edward’s feelings for her are interfering with the mission, and she sets forth to finish the job alone, abandoning her partner just before the final leg of the assignment. But will she be able to successfully navigate perilous post-war Europe alone? Or will her brash arrogance and fierce independence prove to be her downfall?

Rachelle Stroman

Age: 26 years old

Rachelle was born in England, but moved to America at the young age of six. She began taking drama classes around the age of nine and continued through high-school. She has starred in a few TV dramas and has been in one movie to date. Her slight English accent along with her facial appearance helped her get her role as the main character in 'The Sweet Smell of Revenge'

She set off hoping to find the one who scarred her. She murdered a young girl, thinking it had been her, but quickly realized she had suspected the wrong person.

Jamesetta

Age: 29

As an alread mega-famous Vocal Legend, Jamesetta knew that directors would do anything for her, when she wished. And so, when she decided to turn to acting, the movie world was her oyster and she could pick and choose which movies took her fancy. After numerous films about her and her music life (including 2008's Cadillac Records), Jamesetta wanted to do something different. Horror.

Operation X is about mad scientist, Dr Xeus, who is obsessed with turning the world into zombies and modifying these new 'creatures' so that they follow his every command. But on one rainy afternoon, whilst the Dr is working and creating, a meteor hits the ground just outside of the tower. This causes a small earthquake throughout the city, knocking one of his new modifications, OpX:0009 (Jamesetta), out of the machine. Due to the fact that she wasn't in the machine long, OpX:0009 is only33.3% modified! Can she use her own intelligence to out-do this maniac and restore the world to normality? Or will the Doctors new found power make her weak?

Is it too late?

Age: 26

Marina Lawrence grew up in the capital of Ireland. She studied Preforming Arts in university which led her to star in several plays in the Abbey Theatre in the Dublin City Centre.
Confident in her acting abilities, she decided to move to America to pursue her dreams in acting professionally.

Here's my second entry, its not very good as its a bit rushed but never mind.

Albrecht Schmitt is a 23 year old actor born in Stuttgart, Germany. Albrects's talent at acting became obvious from a young age, when he joined a drama club at his school, he has gone from strength to strength ever since. He got his first acting role at 12 year old when he auditioned to play a part in a television series in Germany. When Albrecht turned 18 he went to live in the North-East of England, to take a degree on drama studies at Durham University and in the process improve his English skills, to help him get a job in the more prominent english language productions. He fell in love with a girl in the area and has therfore remained in England ever since. Albrecht auditioned and went on to win the role of Alex Lehman, an assasin in the low budget english produced film 'Operation X'.

The film set in 2063, in a bleak world where the aristocracy of a United Europe, desperate to gain acess to Russian land and resources hire assasin Alex Lehamn to kill the newly elected president of Russia, Abram Arshavin, after he refuses to proceed with European-Russian unification. Will Alex listen to his conscience, or collapse under the threats of certain death if he doesn't do what he is trained to do?

You may know Eugene Clark, 78, editor and head of Bridgeport's Clutterlot Press, as the nation's most beloved curmudgeon to ever wage a one-man war against the film industry and paparazzi. Best known to today's generations as the harshest film critic in the nation and author of 12 books attacking Starlight Shores lifestyle such as "These Movies Are Bad And Barely Worth Reviewing" and best-seller "[Censored] those [Censored] in Starlight Shores: My Story," Clark was once world-famous as a 5 star actor, arguably one of the nation's first idealized stars. But when the story broke that Eugene had had woohoo with a vampire, Magda Cartwright-Clark, (his wife), Clark came to blows with 3 paparazzi and was fired for the incident, an event that Clark says was "ultimately the second best thing that ever happened to me."

http://i50.tinypic.com/2qdncwg.jpg

Clark's return to acting some 47 years later thus took the entire world by surprise.

http://i50.tinypic.com/14kaatj.jpg

Under the working title, "Darker Than Night" is a film by indie studio Dire Chinchilla Pictures and a sequel/re-imagining of Eugene Clark's first film, "Bright As The Twinbrook Sun," where he played Emerson Midas, a private investigator tracking down a notorious bank robber. At its surface a western, the film was at its core a deliberately paced horror and described as the most nihilisticly dark film to ever come out of the era. While few details are available at this time, the film is speculated to be about the character's quest for revenge against the never-seen enemy who took control of the character's life and destroyed it many years ago.

When asked about his decision to play the role once more, Clark said that he was offered the role when asked to give the indie film his blessing. "The script was actually amazing, so I took it because I don't want some asshole ruining the only role I was ever proud of. If anyone's going to destroy what remains of my acting legacy, it's going to be me."

For this entry I had the idea that the film that was made years ago in the fifties, and be black and white.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1338529-FeministBaby1.jpg

Little Rebecca Blackwood is the eight-year-old daughter of celebrity gold digger, Goldie Blackwood. Becca was already a familiar face on television, appearing in many obnoxious adverts and soap operas, but was determined to break into movies. Or at least her mother was. Becca herself is a lively child, loves playing with her eighteen dogs and painting on every wall she looks at.

At that time the feminist movement of SimNation was brewing, and a film was made to take advantage of the current social climate. Enter The Silent Hunter, a project being developed by a rare female film director and raging feminist, Cathie Cuckler.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1338530-FeministBaby2.jpg

The film centres around a child with mysterious psychic abilities, who, disgusted by a male-dominated society, decides to become a vigilante feminist who fights crimes of misogyny with her murderous mind powers.
http://thumbs2.modthesims.info/img/2/4/0/8/0/6/9/MTS_Dazro-1338531-FeministBaby3.jpg

Rebecca’s acting in other works was received to be somewhat wooden and stilted, as well as having a continuous "pissed-off" expression on her face, which until this point was a hinderence. But under a different light with this picture, she gave a surprisingly errie performance, which critics praised her for, and the film generated a lot of money for her – and her mother.

Heres my round Three, im away from today so i'd rather get it in too early than too late, wether you decide to extend or not.
Erin Yorke grew up a wealthy daughter of Acting Dynasty the Yorke family. Mother Elizabeth York had even been in Silent movies for Plumbob pictures in the 1920's. Erins first and only movie before beginning her career in theatre was popular romantic romp "once apon a time" starring friend and A-list star Thom Banks. Erin stars as Marina, the mermaid princess who longs to walk amongst humans and goes to the sea witch (Pat ursine) to get human legs. The film itself wasn't very good, but as teenage girls will watch anything and rule the world in terms of deciding what is popular and successful, there are currently eight sequels planned. "Once apon a time - again!" is planned for next year introducing Gaylor Dautner as a rival fisherman for Marinas affection. Speaking from location while filming the movie in Sunlit tides, Erin was quoted as saying "i don't think the film is going to be very good, but the holiday villa it s going to buy me in Montevista should turn out to be beautiful!"

Daisy looks very beautiful and she really suits the part as a doll, being a bit doll like herself. Her facial photos might be a bit too small, so keep that in mind for the next round. Maybe instead of two different angled pictures you can have one larger photo. The writing is well done and the movie plot sounds scary. You have also used a nice amount of CC which doesn’t take away focus from your sim.

Your sim is cute but I don’t find that she is much different from the first sim you presented. Good use of custom content you made her fit the role. With your final shot through lighting I think you could have achieved a darker look. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for picture size.

I understand she is suppose to be playing a doll and thus have doll like features, unfortunately that does make way for the most looking unique sim. I would play with the proportion of her features more. The eyes could be tweaked more in regards to shape and her nose could still be tad bigger without sacrificing the doll look. Your movie description is very good! Of course, your use of scaring, blood, and doll skin are all ideal fit for the role. Your choice in hair and dress, however, could have been better. There many “doll” like hairs you could have chosen and the dress leaves a resounding ”meh”. Consequently, for a “ Broken Doll” you could have gone a lot further with CC, without seeing the texture joints in the skin tone and reading her story, I would have never known she is was suppose to be a broken doll come to life to get revenge. The background, scene, and props also do not connect with your lovely story. What is the purpose of her being what seems like a mechanic garage with construction equipment? Perhaps CASTing blood splatter on walls of the color would help. I would have chosen a better setting altogether, like a dark hallway in Maggie’s house. Your pose you used full embodies “ The smell of Revenge” perfectly. The camera angles you used for your sim is very good too. Using an extra (Maggie) looking at her horror was nice touch. Looking from behind a person at the subject: You could have moved Maggie (back towards the camera) in front of your sim, making it look like she was peering down on her and Maggie was looking up in horror, it would have put more focus on your sim and really added a dramatic horror effect to the feeling of the picture. Good job.

Jasmine looks almost live like. I especially love that you have given her such a neutral and realistic hair color! Maybe she could have been just a tad more “demon” like with her costume on? Even though I like her looks now as well. The pictures are of great quality and I love how the movie picture came out. Maybe you could have written a sentence or two more about the actress? Just to nitpick. A very good entry!

Liked your sim very nice! Enjoyed your story, the final picture and use of custom content and with all of that you achieved telling your story in the picture. Nice job!

Oh wow! You have in improved so much and so fast I can really see the listened to my feedback for the better. I love your sim, it just the straightness of the brows that bother me because it messes up the otherwise harmonious lines of her face. Eyebrows can change an entire person look; work on adjusting the curve of her brows. The amazing dramatic lighting , the black ground, the evil chair with minions, the roses ,the seating pose with wine glass , the red color scheme , her outfit, the roses on the floor….what can else I say? The beautiful scene you created is perfection. Bravo!

Your sim looks very interesting in the first photo. I like that she’s a bit plain and is not shown in much makeup. In the costume photo I wish you could somehow make her scarier. Maybe a facial mask with some scars etc. would have done the trick. I’m afraid your movie picture is a bit far away. It’s hard to see your sim in it. The second one (extra) is actually better, besides we can’t see her head. So something you will need to look at. Your writing is well done!

I liked the sim and her story. She did have a unique look to her. Bigger pictures would have helped in your presentation and I did deduct a point in rule adherence for small picture size. I liked where you were going in your final shot but it was too far away to have any impact. Good job!

OMG is it the same contestant?! You improved so much in such a short time! I noticed your large extravagant set is very beautiful and detailed. Your third promotional shot is shot a bit too far away, I noticed you did this to show off the scene using a wide angle shot .You should have used a fisheye angle that way you get closer without loosing the detail in wide shot. In Tab mode if you zoom in really close using “W” and scroll out really far, you will get a fisheye effect, it would have been very useful here. I know it’s set in a basement but the scene was a bit too front lit, possibly from ceiling lights. Extra lights such as more candles might be overkill and take way from the careful thought out and well placed scene you created. Even though you told us which picture to judge, I had to take of 0.5 for including it in your post, as it is unfair to your other contestants. The bio and story were great! You should really look into becoming a Sims 3 machinima or story teller, you definitely have the budding talents for it.

Your sim is really lovely. I really like her looks. All your photos are high quality, close up and the right size. Also the lighting is well. Your movie picture looks like it could be taken straight from a game magazine. I don’t have much to point out honestly, besides keeping up the good work. Maybe you can challenge yourself by making a man or weirder looking sim? Just for the fun of it.

I really liked your sim. I just didn’t get the nerdy/awkward vibe from her. I did love the use of custom content and the look you achieved with her. Great job on staging in your final shot, I loved the ghosties. Really nice job.

She looks absolutely stunning! Although she looks very similar to your sim used in round one, I can see you made slight changes with the mouth and the jaw. Your use of CC is flawless and fitting as per usual. Your scene is very detailed but a tiny bit busy, it could use one less ghost or poster. The use of the two-headed ghost was a nice touch I love her dramatically evil expression. And I noticed your story low have improved as well

I really like the movie plot you have made. It’s really interesting. The sim is very pretty, but maybe not exceptional? I would try to jump from the cute girl route and to something different from the next round just as a challenge. I don’t have much to point out. The photos are clear and a good size. The lighting is perfect as well. I really like the movie picture.

Cute sim and nice use of custom content. I liked how you brought the story into your picture, nice job. Work a little more on staging a good scene.

I can see your sim making skills are improving. It always in the eyes and eyebrows that need more shaping and less round can easily be fixed by middling the eye apex slider. Her face shape could also be more sculpted as well. Nice use of fog, foliage and colored lighting in your scene. You could have casted her transformation into her character a little more dramatic with the green skin and scales and such in your second picture. Based on your story I would be frightened too, so good job on picking an appropriate pose this time. It would be even better if you had have chosen a pose that shows she experiencing being possessed by the creator in he rock, like her letting out “agonizing” scream.

I really like your sim. There’s something quite original about her. She really suits the role as a doctor as well. I like your surroundings, the lighting is good and your pictures are nice and clear. I don’t know much more to say, but keep up the good work and just have fun in the last round.

Wonderful job on the sim! I believed her in this role. I liked the youthful look you gave her in the first shot and the maturity in the second shot. It made her believable as doctor. Well thought out. Nicely done!

Your use of CC and CASting is amazing as always. Your sim is very cute and pretty. I would have loved to see her with ever so tiny bit more of cheekbone curve, but is not necessary. In the second picture she kind of resembles Audrey Hepburn. The scene you created has excellent prop and furniture placement. The expressive poses you chose really make the scene, it as if I was looking at an actual screen grab form a movie. From the grief and fear stricken look on your sim’s face, to put her nearest to camera in the foreground, it is clear you know how to focus a scene. The curled fingers on the extra ‘standing on operating table is a nice touch. You clearly know see she went crazy without even seeing her face. The only thing is you missed one invisible light in front of your main actor’s face to illuminate her face more as you did in the first two pictures. Excellent Job!

Your sim really suits as an action woman. I like her look in the movie, though the sim itself isn’t the most original this round. I wish that we could have seen just a bit more of her in the movie picture. She’s a bit far away and we can’t see her face. You could have gone closer up with the camera here. The setting is very nice though.

I liked your sim, she is cute. I liked your action shot but it was a bit far away and it lost some impact. Work on your lighting, the shots were a bit dark.

Your sim could be more unique, but her nose is nice though. Use MTS upload standards as guidelines. In your first two pictures she is too backlit and you took them a bit too close up. Put more lights beside or in front of her to correct this. Great action scene and story, it’s like “V for Vendetta” and the “Walking Dead” together! I just wish I could see more of her face and the camera was slightly closer to her. That way the focus is on more of the star of your movie than the background itself. Good use of poses.

I love your sims face. The jaw and cheeks are really neatly sculpted. She really suits her part and looks quite scary. I would maybe have changed the background in the movie picture though. It’s a bit too detailed and steals a little attention from the foreground. Just as a notice. Same for the facial pictures. You don’t really need a patterned background her, it’s good enough with a neutral one. All we want is to see the sims face and makeup.

You gave her a unique look and l liked her a lot. Next time I would like for you to let your sim shine and use a more neutral background. You could still use color and patterns but use the same color family within the pattern. Nice job on bringing your story into the last shot.

Wow! You improved so much in such a short period of time! Especially your sim making skills. I would say she has more of a vixen vibe than sweet cute look. I see where you were going with the pose, its bold, I like it. I don’t get the random bloody handprints and the random knife placement. Your scene could have used a lot more wedding decor, like a buffet table or wedding aisle layout. Your scene is bare. I like the distance you took your pictures in your promotional shot and your story.

I like the idea of taking an existing story and making it your own. I actually read an article somewhere of someone who thought Jack the Ripper might as well be a woman. Nice. Your pictures are very well lighted, clear and in a good size. You might want to play around a bit more with makeup, seeing this round really gave a nice opportunity for it. She could have been even scarier in my opinion.

Nice sim, she is unique and you have a signature style that is easily recognized as you. I liked your story. Good job in bringing it in the final shot. I just wasn’t feeling the insanity you gave her in your story.

Very interesting looking sim, although she looks a lot like your last sim. Especially the nose. Your lighting is very, very good! Your story is great as usual, based on the famous jack the ripper legend, the gender role reversal is quite innovative. The pose you choose for your sim in the promotional shot is inappropriate it doesn’t really fit with the character or the scene. Partly this was due to it being an awkward earnest model – like pose for an actor driven scenario, the lack of eye contact and having no purpose in the scene or storyline. That could be easily solved by letting her interacting or posing with the extras you set up. Even if she were simply in midst attacking her victim or looking at her, it would have seemed more intentional, allowing the viewer to connect more with the subject (your sim).

You have really put a lot of effort into your writing. This movie sound very interesting, but my only question is if it’s scary enough? Would it be scarier if the mouse was actually the monster? Also I think it would be better not making a collage for the next round. It really takes the focus away from that ONE perfect movie still. Your sim is sweet and I really think she suits the role as a mouse.

Great sim and I can tell you really thought about how you could create a character that fit the role. The custom content used was great. I could see her as having been a house mouse turned human. Your “mouse” got a little lost in the final shot. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for picture size.

Your story is very good but it was little hard to read. The spacing you chose made me have to re-read it quite a few times. I think you can remove some sentences and tighten up your story. If your sim were supposed to be a mouse or a mouse-human hybrid, I would have like to see some mouse ears or whiskers. Overall, however, the use of CC for her character is great. I found very interesting how you collaged your promotional shot; it made it look like an epic movie poster. All the scenes fit well properly and express what the movie is about. Much better lighting this time around and great use of poses & props, they add purpose to scene perfectly. If you made her eyes slightly smaller and lower her cheekbone height to create the illusion of fuller chubby cheeks, she would be even more unique. I can see her human appearance was sculpted only to add to her character in he movie with beady looking eyes and nose to resemble a mouse, very clever. I took 0.5 off for slightly over - Photoshoping in your promotional shot by adding arrows and the test tube. Besides breaking the rules, I found it took away from the pictures. You can trust your ability for your pictures to do the talking, because they speak for themselves! I can tell you took the advice from the previous round, and was all the better for it. Really drastic improvements in such a short period of time, consider me impressed!

Nice twist on a horror story. You don’t hear a lot about genies. I like it. Your sim also looks fantastic, and the costume is great. Especially in the movie picture. I love how you have been playing around with colors as well. Simply a good round. Just keep it coming and enjoy round 3!

Nice sim. He is cute! Great job in bringing your story to life through your last shot. The use of custom content helped in making him look the part. The lighting in the last shot was a bit dark. Good job!
I like the bright color of your background. There is still some uniformity in your sim features, you’re a perfectionist, I can tell Don’t be afraid to make a nose a little too big or lips too thin, not all features have to perfect as if they were sculpted in a lab. Nevertheless, your sim is very handsome, I feel his face calls for just his jaw to be defined a little bit more and his brows could be lowered to give him slight hooded eyes that would add to his uniqueness. I can see some obvious improvement in your sim creating skills. The scene you set up is very nice, from the use of fog and effects to the full moon peeking between the trees. I’m always as excited to see you included another eater egg to your picture: The slender man look alike amongst the fog What neat way to add interest to a picture and a fun way give the viewer’s eyes something to do. You always create such amazing atmosphere. I just wish I couldn’t see the large square platform your sim was standing on, other than that, excellent Job!

I honestly have to say I found your last sim a bit more interesting. This one looks a bit too EA like. Your picture size and lighting is good. I also like your movie picture. Your sim looks quite creepy in it. For the next round I just think you should play around a little more with face sculpting, seeing both your pictures and writing looks good.

Your sim is pretty but I didn’t see a 17 year old. I liked your last shot really liked seeing her in her demonic portrayal. Work some on the lighting. Don’t put the sim directly under the light, you will get shadows. Nice job.

You have improved but your sim, but still could be more unique in sculpt, besides her face shape, her other features need working on. Her bottom lip is too pointy. The classic Library setting, appropriate and good choice of pose. You need to increase your sim detail graphical options. In your movie description, your sentences had a few words missing, which made a little hard to follow/read, be more careful next time. The lighting in your promotional shot could be a little bit better. Well done.

Delano definitely looks like the type who get to play the bad guys. He seems interesting, so I wish we could get to know him just a little bit better. A sentence or two more about your next actor would be good. The costume is spot on for a scary movie. He really looks creepy, and I think the movie shots is one of the scariest this round.

Loved your sim! He scared the jeebus out of me in his custom content and I liked it! You have a knack for creating a sim that fits the story you tell. Great job!

Excellent facial sculpting as always. “Zom”- boy is a “Zom”- bie, love it! The line about him saving kittens instead eating them was cute. I like the distance you took the promotional shot, it close enough to fill the space while adding interest and making seem like the viewer is watching in first person. The lighting for all three pictures is little dark, play around with a light source in front or beside your sim.

Again you have made a stunning sim. This is one of the sims I think is most noticeable this round. When you say she is half Japanese that I something I can clearly see. I know how hard it is to make an Asian face and I think you have nailed it. I do love your movie picture, but I think it looks more like an action movie than a horror movie. Be clearer about the genre next round and you will have no problem hitting high.

Great sim! She has a unique look, good job. I liked your last shot but felt you could have gone further in incorporating your story in it. All in all great job!

Very unique looking sim, you can tell she part Japanese too. Cool story + cool explosion = awesome action scene! I love the background you used and the pose; by placing her sole in he middle in the picture it’s very direct and to the point and focus to the scene. A near perfect score.

Such a funny backstory for your character. I really love it. I wish the movie plot was a bit more horror like though. Just as I mentioned to some other contestants, your story is a bit more suitable for an action movie. Revenge is more typical in that genre, while being on the run or being infected is more horror like. Think about the genre for the next round. Your pictures are great.

Good looking sim. With his custom content you made him fit the role. Loved the last shot but not sure what you were trying to go for. Overall good job!

Good use of age spot and age detail. Kudos for using an older actor. Really great bio and movie description, I felt I was enjoying reading a real world well written article. I noticed the car he is sitting on is so huge and he is so small, why is that? It almost seems like you photoshopped him onto the car. The car is closest to camera in the foreground, so it would be larger, but wouldn’t he also be larger as well? The scene/background you set up looks nice with the details and the specific props placement, really adds interest to the scene. I see you use a reflective pose instead of action based one, which seems to fit your story since he seems way too cool for that based on your bio. Although your scene is very nice, I am not able see any connection to your vague movie description. I cannot tell what the movie is about by looking at your promotional picture.

That’s one freaky kid! I think it’s interesting that you have set your movie in the fifties. The settings you’ve made seems right for that time period. I also liked that you added the black and white picture just so that we could see how it would look in black and white. I can’t see a reason not to be able to do that type of movie. So, nice idea. Your pictures are clear and the movie still is really good. It freaks me out, and I’m probably not alone in that.

Good job on creating a creepy child! Creepy kids creep me out. I’m not sure the story really fit a child. I could see maybe a teen or young adult in that role. I really like the last shot. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for some photo shopping. Good job.

Although a child being able to full understand misogyny and then punish others for it, is a little far fetched (I blame the director ), but your story background is really thought provoking and invites critical inspection. As a human rights major, I always enjoy a story that address social paradigms and provokes social norms. Like I said before, you are very creative and a very good writer! You should look into becoming a writer or story teller; if you haven’t already Your scene is just about perfect and even more spectacular in black and white. Unfortunately I had to take away 0.5 for adding that extra picture as is would not be fair to other fellow contestants.

Your pictures are too narrow I’m afraid. It really makes it difficult to judge the sims optimally. I also wish you would have taken a more frontal photo. When that is said the sim looks like he could play a vampire. Next time please do his picture all frontal and with a neutral background. I am also not quite happy with the background in the movie still. I think it could have been creepier and set at night time. Your challenge for the last round will be to make better pictures. I’m not sure what kind of graphic settings you have on your computer, so I’m gonna try not to judge that too hard.

I liked your sim, but the pictures don’t do him justice. Try taking them indoors with a neutral background. Use tab mode and then play with the angle to get a nice full on face shot then capture it with the “C” key. I did deduct a couple of points in rule adherence for picture size and your story didn’t meet the minimum requirements.

Your pictures look a bit too stretched. Please don't just take a small pic and size it up in your graphics program to get bigger pics - this only makes the dimensions larger but doesn't add any detail and just gives you a blurry, pixelated larger pic, not a nice clear one. TS3 pictures allows for nice big clear pictures without any 3rd party editor. Just use the ‘tab’ key , use w or scroll to zoom, and press ‘C’ to capture to get close up. As per the rules, your pictures are too small and I had to take points off. I also had to take one point off because your movie description was 2 sentences too short. Your facial sculpt fits a vampire perfectly, I can clearly see you have greatly improved on working on the uniqueness of your sim. I looks as if you just took a random picture in game during gameplay and took no effort to set up a scene. That’s unfortunate because the pose you choose was great, and he would really stand-out even in an all black background. Your lighting could be improved overall by playing around the use of more outdoor lights. The lighting from outside is bit unflattering, but it’s not your fault it’s the TS3 lighting engine. My advice is to take picture at sunset or sunrise on sims 24 hr day to get the best lighting possible.

Though it looks more like an old fashioned crime series to me, I think your settings are quite mysterious and well done. Your sim looks really stunning, as well as her character. I also love what you have done with the background. The movie poster is very live like. All I have to say is enjoy round 3 and keep up the good work. You’ve done a wonderful job so far. I also like your way of making the pictures into posters, as you are fully aloud to do text in Photoshop.

What can I say she’s stunning! Loved the atmosphere you created! Through your picture you took me back in time! Well done! She looked the part and I can’t picture another in that role. Nicely done!

Your sim from the previous round look like they could be siblings, but she looks great especially in character. A real femme fatal! You came up with an even more unique story and setting. It would make for a really interesting story in real life! I like how even the extras are posed doing interesting things, it adds to the ambience. And yet through all this your sim still stands out in the middle of scene. It really shows her star quality. Near perfect score.

Great idea to twist a sweet Disney story and turn it to the dark side. I really like the movie plot you’ve made. Leo might not exactly look 29, but hey they used 30 year old actors to play teenagers in American Pie didn’t they? Your movie still is really good. What would have been better is an open door in the background. Just something making it even more dynamic. The lighting and facials are good.

I liked him. He reminds me of your first sim. The custom content used was perfect it helped to really fit him into the role. Work on the lighting a bit more and you will be there. Good job on the last shot. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for small picture size.

You have improved little in sculpting the faces of your Sims, unfortunately he doesn’t look that far away from Sims 3 stage. This mainly due to the yes, they need more tweaking an sculpting I understand you want him to look baby – faced but there are way to do that while keeping him still unique. His look does fit his character though. Really neat twist on a classic story. The best lighting ever, as usual. Your scene is good but I would have loved to see your extra more in the background and looking at your sim more directly. She is kind of stealing the show by being in the foreground. I would love if hat window was open somehow (there are open-able windows available here at MTS) to make it look like he just flew in, like we know peter pan can.

I think you have done a good job turning the guy next door into a scary looking type. He doesn’t look like a monster or zombie, but what makes the movie interesting is your last picture. His non conscious looking face and the settings around him. Your photos are clear and your light setting is perfect. Great job!

Nice job on the sim with his blond hair he reminded me of Owen Wilson. Nice job on the final shot and bring your story to life in it! Good job.

Wow you have improved so much in such a short period of time! Your lighting is amazing and especially outside for that matter! Everything looks so crisp and clear; it makes such a drastic difference almost as if got a new graphics card. Your choice pose is very stubble and not in your face action pose but I like it very much. I can see him peering down on the body he just killed with no emotion, perfectly fitting with your story of a psychopath; his nonchalant attitude is also exemplified in this pose as if he is casually wiping the blood off his hands, only concerned with not wanting to get bloodstains on his dapper suit. Your uses of props like the dumpster and the stray cat were a nice touch. You laid out an excellent scene with interesting execution. Amazing Job! Encore for next round!

There is something really funny about the look on this sim. I like it. She’s very characteristic. The movie has this 80s style going on which I like. I would have liked you to make the movie still a bit bigger only, and made the sim a bit more in focus. Nice detail with the horse in the background. It’s very abstract, but it suits a horror movie well.

Nice job on the sim. I totally saw her as diva singer but not as a kick butt half zombie. Liked the action in your last shot but it was a bit far away. Work on the lighting a bit just to get a feel on how it can create shadows. It can really change the look and feel of the sim.

Your sim is really distinct looking classically attractive! I see you have improved since last time. I also noticed your appropriate use of action poses, the second and third pic seem too small. The third picture your scene is a little too far way and should have been zoomed in a tad closer. The objects and the extras on set seemed randomly placed and have connection the story or each other. When using props you should think carefully from how they and take way from the scene, particularly how tell a story. By looking at this scene alone, I wouldn’t be able to see your story. I also think for zombie, it called for a little more than ripped clothes and raggedy hair with bare feet. You could have really played with appropriate us of CC more. This really hurt in you in the CC used category been even more consequently your role appropriate and staging scores. Last round you had better use of CC IMO and your scores were better in those categories for it. If last time you were using too much, this your definitely using too little, finding balance is key, less is not always more. Remember a smart use of CAST and game objects you won’t have use a lot of outside CC.

How did you know I was a 50s fan? I really like this idea. Your sim is very nice looking, and I love the settings you’ve made. It’s fun that the sim looks so tired and less smiling than the ”typical” 50s woman. Nice little addition with the “Bold and Beautiful” episode she had been in. This made me laugh. You’ve had a great way of making little details this round, which I think is a bit plus.

Nice job on the sim. Custom content helped in giving her that stepford wife feel. I enjoyed the story. I did deduct a point in rule adherence for picture size.

I love your sim! Especially in the first picture, she looks like character from another game. She is an art! She is also very cute. I like the retro 1950s theme you chose. Your sim could have better with scene if she was directly looking at something towards the camera to the viewer. If she is not posed on the floor, some of those objects should be on surfaces like tables. The promotional shot could have benefited from being zoomed in much closer. Better use of lights is needed for the whole scene and background. Try playing with adding lights directly beside or in front of her. I like your choice of CC and red theme in CASTing. The fisheye effect what would be useful here for add a quirky 1950s movie posters illustration. To get fisheye effect activated, press tab and use w to zoom in really close and then scroll outwards. Another tip would be to have lights and angle underneath face to create horror flash light effect. Her gasping expression would look more suspenseful and dramatic.

The sim looks a little plain and EA like to me. Don’t be afraid to play with the sliders. Drag them to one end and check the outcome. When that is said I think it’s a nice idea to let the movie is about Sunset Valley and all the characters we’ve grown to known. Your movie shot is really scary. I love that we can’t see who the murderer is. In my opinion it’s actually one of the scariest pictures this round. So for the next round your main focus should be sim sculpting.

While being a cute sim I did not see her as being set apart from other sims. There are some great tutorials on creating unique sims even if you don’t have custom sliders. Liked your last shot you really were able to create a dark feel with it.

You’re improving because you created a scene. Nice use of fog. Your Sims features are too round and don’t look different from the regular look of the TS3 Sims. All of her features need more sculpting. Your story is too short and the lack of punctuation & missing words made it very difficult to read and understand your story. Please be more carful next time. From what I understand, Sadie is the possibly the killer? So then why is dead in the scene. A suggestion would be to use another sim as an extra in Sadie place to either be killer or being the one getting killed. Having a random figure amongst the fog would add to the spooky effect. Your third picture could have been zoomed in a lot closer.

Your writing is very well done. You’ve explained the movie plot really well. I also like the fact that you have tried out a more neutral background. It’s a good contrast to your sim’s outfit. She might not be the most interesting looking sim this round though. So for the next round I would recommend trying to do some more original face sculpting.

Your sim is cute. I just didn’t find that she stood out from the normal look of Sims. There are some great tutorials on creating unique Sims without facial sliders as well. Your story was good. Work with the lighting it can really help in creating a mood. Nice job.

Your sim is not unique or different looking form the regular pudding look of the TS3 sims, I suggest use MTS creator guidelines to help you. She has nice coloring, though especially her eyes. Your pictures are too dark, especially the third picture, because you need a lot more lights turned on to the brightest intensity. Great story. Your set was nice because I could clearly see it was a maze. If you built a complete maze as setting, a suggestion would be to take the picture on angle all the way up, looking down. Like looking i to a dollhouse, and her look up at he camera with an expressing of fair. This would highlight vast and endlessness of the maze, adding to aspect of hopelessness. This would give greater impact to the picture overall. The pose was also appropriate. I don’t understand why her face is covered in blood if that is the case then blood splatter should be other places.

Interesting movie plot. I like that your protagonist is just this average and plain looking girl. You have really made her look suitable for the part. I can also imagine her being a teacher as her real life self. I think you’ve done very well this round and I don’t have much to say besides enjoying your last round.

I adored your sim! Your story is sad and unexpected. I really enjoyed it. You really were able to bring your story into the final shot! Well done!

So cool! Awesome story and scene! A really interesting story that could have deeper moral (euthanasia) and philosophical (the idea of battle with your inner self, physically as well) issues to be addressed. Before reading story I thought she was battling mental illness, the clones representing voices in her head. Well I was close in the theme, congrats on being able to convey a story while making a subjectively artist scene. A notably hard thing to achieve .The story would make for a great script in real life! Her mouth could be more sculpted. I like your walls and floor, resemblances blood veins; it really gives the atmosphere of being inside the body. Nice use of color contrast in costume, you can tell who are the evil clones. I find she looks more unique when in character, the transformation is really fitting. I see you improved on your lighting and followed advice on focus the subject of your scene. Most creative entry so far! Near perfect score.

That’s one scary looking sim for sure! Your photos are really good, but I wish you would have chosen one instead of making a collage. It’s so much easier when judging. There’s just a bit too much happening on there right now. Remember this for the last round. Besides this I think you have done a wonderful job!

You are getting there with creating a unique sim. I liked her. I would love to have seen your sim shine in the final shot. I especially loved the picture of her bending over the body bag and looking back. Had you just used that shot with the Operation X title it would have more impact. Nice job.

Your choice in colors and CASTing is very good. I think you could have chosen a different outfit because of the interference/clipping with your poses. It seems she is up to mischief in most of her scenes. In the third promotional picture, it could have been brighter lit, and it needs more lights. I take took 0.5 off for a little too much use of Photoshop in the title. Otherwise good job.

Your movie seems like it should rather belong in the action genre than under horror. I like your idea, but I wish you would have taken a little more time with your staging (removing the plumbobs over your characters heads etc.). Also I think your character loses a bit focus since he is a bit small compared to the surroundings. Also your facial photos are a bit distorted. A big part of the contest is of course getting them right. Things seem a bit random for now. Try using your time better in the next round and I know you will do fine.

Nice sim. Work on the lighting and camera angles and you will be there. Remember to use the in-game cheats such as hideHeadlineEffects that will get rid of plumbobs and thought bubbles. Nice job.

Epic politically – charged, espionage, futuristic, action story! While I commend you again for your fearlessness on using sliders in extreme ranges. I’m not sure the purpose of having so freakishly tall, if it doesn’t add to the story, it kind of seems to be taking away from the scene. The second picture is too backlit that is harsh on his features and needs more lights beside or in front of him to fix this. The outside in the third picture light is unflattering. My advice is to take picture at sunset or sunrise on Sims 24 hr day to get the best lighting possible. I could see where you were going to set up your scene with props. You should never reveal the plumb bob (there is a cheat that hides this) breaks the immersion of the viewer connecting with your picture. You have all the elements in props and poses to make a good scene, you just need to work on your camera angles to properly capture your vision. You could zoom in a tad more with the camera. Remember to properly place each posed actor in the proper facing position, the extra near the car is faced the wrong way.

crdroxxpl, Elexis notified you twice in the thread; once on December 1st, and again on December 4th, giving you plenty of time to reupload your images.

Also crdroxxpl, your images don't load for me, what image hosting site you are using for them?
Reminder for crdroxxpl - your pictures aren't showing, please check the image links or attach them to the post until the round ends :)

Elexis has done a fantastic job notifying contestants if they missed something, or added something they weren't supposed to, or have pictures that don't meet the standards. This actually goes above and beyond what a host is required since she could just assume everyone reads the rules correctly and gets everything right the first time and, if not, the judges will catch and dock points for it.

Additionally, it is your responsibility, once you commit to participating, that you check back in with the contest. How often you do so is up to you of course, but a host or judge should not have to track you down through PM to let you know something is wrong with your entry. That is what the contest thread is for.

If you have any further questions regarding this, please PM me and we can discuss it at through private channels so we don't hijack the thread! :)

Jessica Maxwell
Age: 29


Jessica Maxwell was born in Appaloosa Plains to a young single mother named Dahlia Maxwell , who was barely out of high school. Growing up she would often asked about her father, though her mother always tell her things about him though she never found out until she was in high school what happened to him. The day he found out Dahlia was pregnant a drunk driver had rammed into the car him and his friends were in, one of the four boys had died later at the hospital while one, her father, had died on impact. Though times were hard for her growing up, things always got better since her mother decided to move back into her parents house. Her grandmother always helping her daughter raise her grand baby, often taking the little girl to dance classes or being at her plays when her mother was working late shifts, but Jessica knew her mother was only doing what she could to give her a bright future. When she turned eighteen, as her graduation gift from her mother she was given a large college fund, the money that she had been saving since Jessica was a toddler. With help of her mother and grandparents she was able to go to a college of the arts. Though her looks seem to say she was a rebel but in truth despite the bright oddly coloring to her hair and bold make up she was a good girl with a guilty pleasure of wanting to watch ever romance comedy there was to exist, so when she was given the opportunity to star in “How I Met Your Dad..” she jumped at the chance with excitement.

(so annoyed how her nose looks sunburned not cold from being outside in winter too long...couldnt get it right no matter what color i thought might make it look right! :cry: )

How I Met Your Dad..

Candi Kane was born in the dead of winter, growing up she loved when winter came around for it was her favorite time of the year. As she grew her love for the refreshing cold air, the way the snow sparkled in the sun and all things winter increase, but there was one thing she longed for as time went by, someone to share it with and when she did she felt she was the luckiest woman alive. Years went by and two daughters later one winter night when she was tucking the girls into bed they asked for a story but not ones of princes’ and princesses but of how their Ma and Dad met and so the story begins as to how I met your dad...

It was early December, snow sprinkled lightly and sparkled in the sun as if sugar covered the ground. My favorite time of the year, though my nose was red and running and my cheeks most likely bright pink from being outside too long i couldn't help myself. I had decided to visit the festivals in the park, the neighborhoods always got together to make it beautiful and magical, i didn't want to miss a second of it. My friends, though not as in love with the season as i was, was always happy to go as well. Standing in line for the hot beverages stand, the man behind me kept pushing into my back and making small grunting noises of annoyance, though from what i could tell his friends were making him do it by the apologies in my ear and the snickering of people behind. Turning slightly and smiling politely before moving a bit more to put room between them, hearing quiet arguing as i did so but glad they stopped. Finally getting my hot chocolate but as i started to move away the man was once again pushed into me, from in front, though his hands rested on my shoulders with his body angled away from me causing me to hold the cup against my chest protectively not wanting to drop it or spill it. He whispered apologies again, smiling slightly before glaring at his friends who turned away, talking to themselves. I smiled back, deciding to introduce myself and start a conversation i had found out his name was August Wind and he had commented on how cute and pretty she looked with her red nose and pink cheeks.

He often stumbled over his words and feet, his clumsy but jokester charm often made me giggle and enjoy his company even further. On one of the days we had gone ice skating at the little ice rink set up at the festival grounds, he had fallen so hard i think he bruised his behind or broken something but i felt bad so i decided to give him a kiss on the cheek.

(not sure if i should have done this but i felt the need to since the snow cut off the lower part of her legs and it needed to be full body.)
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v300/LilRye/Screenshot22.jpg


During the week of festival we grew to enjoy each others company, But... ultimately he was unable to stay forever, he had only been there visiting with family during his only time for holiday though. On the last day, we had gone ice skating at the little ice rink set up at the festival grounds, he had fallen so hard i think he bruised his behind or broken something!I was sad of course, but i felt i could do nothing to keep him here but hoped maybe to see him again next year. Five years went past and we were only able to see each other one week each year, sometimes. On the sixth year i watched from afar, he had someone else which made me very sad but each time our eyes met at festival i felt sparks, and his eyes shown maybe he did too. Though this is not the ending! Another two years past before i saw him again this time alone, deciding to move to the town as he couldn't get me out of his head.

Naala Pria
19

http://i.imgur.com/AykQm.jpg

Born in Japan and adopted by an Indian couple when she was a baby Naala does not know her complete ethnicity but has grown up with ambition, family values and a very perceptive nature due to the dangers of growing up in Tokyo. With a dark sense of humour and rebellious nature her parents worried she would head in the wrong direction in life however she got lucky and was scouted at sixteen having in turn done runway and catalogue modelling for some very influential people. When Naala’s husband took her along to his audition for the movie version of the popular novel ‘Avenue of Broken Hearts’ she ended up getting the lead female role alongside him as Clara Koga. Cool and calm on the surface it's rare she lets her girly hopeless romantic part out so Naala hopes this new movie will help her show a more vulnerable side of herself to her fans. Naala has lived in India, America, Milan, Paris and England in her short life but Japan will always be home for her.


Clara Koga

http://i.imgur.com/q0Y7B.jpg

Deep in America away from civilisation is Avenue Point a jail facility for murderers. Fearless and observant with sarcastic wit Clara always dreamed of working in the police force saving lives and defending justice (she also dreamed of falling in love but that would have to wait). Her reason for her dreams was because her mother was a victim of domestic violence from Clara’s Japanese father. Unfortunately Clara only got half of what she wanted and patrols the prison cells feeding criminals instead of actually catching them. Snappy and emotionless on the surface Clara actually has a lot of emotions boiling inside and when she meets Ren Kisaragi, a man accused of murdering his own wife and daughter by setting fire to their home, Clara can't seem to keep herself calm anymore. She wants to believe he did it for the insurance but can't as she gets to know him and learns he never claimed it. Clara feels herself falling in love with Ren and wants to help him so she goes out to seek the truth. Watch and laugh joyously this summer as this uptight cop falls comically apart at first love, saves an innocent man and achieves her dreams (even the romantic ones)!

Ramon Graham, 23 stars as Clint Jones - International Man of Vagueness in How I Met Your Dad.

At the young age of 23, Ramon Graham entered the world of movies and became an instant B-List hit. Ramon lives on sarcasm and British humor, since he was raised in the Anglo-Isles of SimNation where the AIBC (Anglo-Isles Broadcasting Company) controlled all the entertainment that was on TV. This shaped his role as a comedian in SimNation, limiting his acting to B-List movies. His comedic approach was something of a mystery to the writers of Maveric Films Ltd., where he started, often making bad jokes sarcastically and upsetting his directors. After a few years of crack shots at the government, Ramon became an instant celebrity after the Golden Plumbobs when he berated the administration of Anglo-Isles for the antics of the Royal Family.
http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41897_121213222629CostumeB.jpg
Now Ramon has made it to the big screen, starring in How I met Your Dad, a romantic, action-comedy that ties into the infamous James Steele movies of the 1960s to present. Ramon stars as Clint Jones, international Man of Vagueness, against the self-styled evil genius Maximillian. Clint must save the world from the clutches of this evil madman bent on world domination through the entire population of Simrala jumping at the same time and knocking the Earth out of orbit. In his adventures he meets Miss Currency Swap and falls madly in love as he tries to save her and the world from Maximillian. How I Met Your Dad opens nationwide this Christmas, asking you the question “How did your parents meet?”

Her jealousy grew more and more everyday, to the point where she dresses up as a seductive waitress, goes under the alias Sarah Red and starts working in Rex's favourite night club. When "Sarah" saw her husband making out with a young blonde lady, she was devastated at first. But then she started playing around with her husband's mind to the point when he goes crazy with all of his lovers around him.

How long will Valerie romantically torture Rex? You can see it all in the new movie: Love and Berries

Booalaska, crdroxxpl, EileenJ and Eternila - your entries are now added to the main post :)

Miss Discordia, your entry is very lovely, but it won't be scored since you haven't participated in the application round. I hope you had fun making it and I'm sure it will inspire others, because that's what the contests are all about - learning something new, improving your skills and more importantly have fun :)

A little note to the people who added an additional shot - it's really nice to show some more pictures, but bear in mind that some judges can deduct points for this. It can give you a very small, but noticeable advantage towards the other contestants who try to express everything in just one picture (that's what actually required for the contest).

Meet Mark O'Harris, the thirty-five year old heart breaker. Mark made his debut as a young boy, playing as a ten year old background character in the then wildly popular TV series "The Monte Vista Gang." Since then, he blossomed into many roles, mostly revolving around a young, trouble making kid, until he found his calling... in Sci-Fi. Needless to say, it came as a surprise, both to the general public and to Mark himself when famous director, Adam Chrystals, phoned him about the lead role in his newest romance.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41920_121214214657Richard Kingsley.jpg

Richard Kingsley was no more that a young scholar, wandering the lands, searching for knowledge. Nobody knew a thing about him, other than the unpleasant rumors surrounding his scars, and he preferred it that way. In a last ditch attempt to escape the local rumor mill, and the old biddies who had nothing better to do than try to seduce him, he took an offer to study abroad. After packing his things, and bidding his rapidly aging parents "farewell," he hopped aboard the caravan, and never looked back. Little did he know that his caravan would be heading to a small, burned out village in the dead of winter. Finally, to make things worse, the real reason the caravan went there was to try and appease "The Baroness of the Crimson Heart," the vengeful ghost that perished in the fire that ravaged the entire mountainside. However, the more he studies the legends, and the more nightly encounters he experiences, the more he comes to realize that she is lost in a world no longer her own. Now he has to learn how exactly to help her, and maybe along the way, he will learn to love?

With her outstanding acting skills combined with many years of experience and a jet-set lifestyle, this 41 years old actress is considered one of Hollywood's big celebrities. She made her debut as a teen actress, landing her first role for a teen comedy series. After a while, she dated a very popular singer, which boosted her popularity and opened countless acting jobs for her. At the age of 25, she married the singer, which spawned a reality TV show which boosted her popularity even more, giving her the chance to launch many stuff under her brand like perfumes, books, clothing lines, and many more. Even though she's primarily known as the reality TV show star now, she still does acting, and her newest movie is Crazy Summer Nights.

Melinda Cruz
http://i45.tinypic.com/152g7yv.jpg
Melinda is a rich, glamorous, hardworking socialite/fashion brand owner from Bridgeport City who has never been in a serious relationship before. After being ridiculed by her socialite friends for not ever having a boyfriend with her, she and her friends made a bet that by the end of the summer, Melinda should have a man with her - with her fashion brand on stake. With so much to lose, Melinda is determined to find a man, no matter how. After spending several nights out in the city, she meets a nice pizza delivery guy whom she falls in love with. However, what would her friends say if they find out that Melinda, the rich and elite top-level fashion designer, is dating a poor pizza delivery man who still lives in his mother's basement? Well, she needs to transform him from rags to riches, of course. And that's probably not going to be so easy.

Movie: Love and Berries

Character: Avery Stallione

Character Desription: Avery was always that good daughter every parent always wanted. She didnt argue, she did what she was told, and always kept good grades at school. This was perfectly fine, until her parents decided that she would marry a man she had never met, especially at the young age of 18. It was at that point that her parents stopped letting her leave the house, except for school. Avery hated it. Being as smart as she was, she found a way out of her "prison," and on that very night she met the love of her life, her true love. After only knowing each other for two days, Avery explained her situation, and they decided to get married and soon. Their relationship was love and berries: nice and sweet, that is until her parents found out...

although he is a true romantic some people think he is too romantic will this effect his efforts in romance or will he get the girl will, she fall for his charm, or will she move on to another man

Well, I gave an extension for this round before and you still have 2 days and 8 hours til it ends, so I don't think I can give another one without more people asking for it. So if anyone else needs and extension, please state so in the thread.
I hope you will get better soon, take care.

Is my Sim from the last round allowed to star as the love interest in this round? I know the main Sim has to be different, but apparently making two whole Sims a round (because I think the love interest is pretty important) is breaking me!

Yes, you can use all Sims that are made by you for the secondary/background role. Just make sure that your main character is the focal point of the picture.

Quick question - As I look at my pics now, they are very sharp and may look a bit photoshopped... I didn't changed anything in graphic programs, just used a HQ mod for my game. Is it okay?

HQ mod is okay, it doesn't change the game that drastically when you don't look at things that are super close. It could be considered as another game graphics setting, just this one is custom.

You should to use makeup and other CC for deformations instead. In real life people use the masks and other makeup to get this, so I strongly advice you to stick with them for your Sims. The rules state that facial sliders can't be changed, so I'm afraid this is no exception.

And yes, the round is extended til the 18th. The message about the extension was posted right before the scores for Round 2 arrived.


Out of curiousity, can body sliders be changed? Actors gaining or losing weight or working out for a role?

Yes, body sliders can be changed. You can see a lot of actors in real life losing/gaining weight for the role.

About another extension

Please note that the extension can be provided only in the case of extreme necessity. This means if you could make your entry until 18th but just want more time for other reasons - don't ask for an extension! This round is set to last for 12 days already, which is more than enough to make your entry (note that typically rounds last only about a week). Everyone wants to get free time before the Christmas, so please consider the fact that judging period is already very close to the holidays. If I extend the round once more, we may get the scores in the next year.
There are 30 people participating in this contest, so I will need at least 5 asks for another extension with a reasonable explanation why would you need more time (this can be PM'ed to me personally).

NB: I know you mentioned about my lack of CC in prev round but, my laptop went into full shut down on 14th Dec.. Soo... all of my games and files were wiped... That means that there isn't as much CC in this round apart from clothing and make up. Also, I added CC due to whether or not I thought it was needed, it doesn't state in the rules that we need it... just that it's allowed..

Penelope Hoover, age seventeen, is a young actress ending her teen movie career. For the past four years, she's been stuck in the same teen romance movies. Penelope started out as a small child actress, doing commercials and bit roles on television series. She made her breakthrough in the hit movie "Saturdays with Marisol", a slight fantasy-romance movie with her playing the main role. Penelope has aged with her movies, while being energetic and loud as a child/pre-teen, she had grown into a mature outlet, more quiet and reserved. Now, she's going out of the teen genre and into the young adult movie world, starting with the comedic-drama romance, "Crazy Summer Nights", playing Elizabeth Ledell.

Crazy Summer Nights

"Crazy Summer Nights" follows teenager Elizabeth Ledell through her junior year of high school. She forms a long-standing crush on senior Levi Monroe, who plans to join the army after school. Afraid she might not get her chance after he graduates, best friends Emily and Carl devise a plan of their own to pull Elizabeth and Levi together. Unfortunately, their plan fails as the end of the year rolls around and Levi graduates, leaving Elizabeth in a rut, being stuck as his best friend. When the unexpected news that Levi is not going to join the army, but stay in the area and take a year off, Elizabeth becomes overjoyed, and she goes with her own plan this time around. One of the events in the small town they live in, is called "Showcase Saturday", a weekly dance contest held at the high school's gymnasium. Determined to dance with Levi, Elizabeth and Levi hang out during the summer, having fun times with each other and occasionally going on friendly dates, where they are asked numerous times if they are dating. The most famous scene in this movie is the "Learning to Dance" scene, where Levi is home alone one night when Elizabeth is over, and she begins to teach him to dance. Things get a little heated, but they don't mind.

No stranger to the world of fame and glamor, Malone McCarthy, age 31, shines with charisma and oozes sensuality. Son of director Liam McCarthy and supermodel Alessandra Silves, Malone has been in the public's eye since he was a small toddler. With a gift for music, Malone began performing in musical theater as a teen. Shortly after graduating high school, he formed a band with close friends and classmates and has enjoyed moderate success on the indie rock scene. Now he seeks to branch out his talents and will be starring in his first ever motion picture, romantic comedy Avenue of Broken Hearts, where he can put his musical talents to good use.

http://www.modyourpanties.com/hosting/41986_121217131452CaseyCassidy.jpg

Casey Cassidy, local rocker and heartbreaker extraordinaire, is famous for his sensual voice that brings the bar to their feet and infamous for his one night stands. Women flock to the bar, eager to see him, desperate to brush against his hand and, should he invite them back to his apartment, they willingly follow, never making it to dawn before he escorts them to a cab and sends them on their way. His "love em' and leave em'" motto has worked well for him thus far and he has no intentions of abandoning it for any woman. All Casey is focused on is that million simolean contract that will set him up for life until local bartender, Eve, refuses to give him the time of day, spurning and rejecting his advances. Shocked that anyone could refuse him, Casey engages in a game of seduction that takes him out of his Casanova comfort zone and into the unfamiliar territory of L-O-V-E.

Name: Nina Ha (Ha Thi Mai Nhung)
Age: 23
Bio: Nina, born of Vietnamese parents, raised in Australia and living in London (Nina is her English name, Mai Nhung her Vietnamese), is already making a name for herself in light hearted romance films. She was a little hesitant to audition for Love and Berries, not wanting to get typecast so early in her career, but the fun script and hunky co-star won her over.

Nina's acting is currently putting her through university, where she studies ecological sciences, and she is still open to whichever direction life takes her.

Jessica
http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c157/nylmat/Sims/Casting%20Call/JessicaNinaHa.jpg

Jessica's mother always said the way to a man's heart was through his stomach. Jessica's sure she'll meet Mr Right one day, but in the meantime she'll run her dessert catering and hostess business and make sure she's in the best position to catch him when he appears.

When Neil Anderson rocks up unexpected to his sister's party, Jessica is on the spot. Melanie Anderson is her oldest client, and her erstwhile brother is gorgeous, successful, laidback... everything a girl could want.

But the first thing Jessica does is half kill him.

When Mr Right has a nut allergy, doesn't like cakes or slices and thinks Jessica's an idiot, Jessica is just about ready to give true love the finger. On top of that Melanie isn't exactly happy her brother ended up in hospital, and Jessica's business is suddenly on shaky legs.

Jessica only has one option: catch the man and placate Melanie with a perfect summer berry parfait.

Xia Tsai
Age: 32 years old

Xia was born into a Chinese household to an American mother and a Chinese father. She never dreamt of the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Instead she dreamt of travelling the world to help animals in need, hoping that one day she would become a qualified vet. When she was 14 years old, her parents got divorced and her father went back to China. She then spent most of her summers spending time in China with her father and his family. One summer when she was 17, a talent agent noticed Xia in a restaurant and asked her to be the face for a well-known cosmetic brand.
Soon after, she was flooded with offers to be the face of many beauty products, commercials and even films! Since then she has become a well-known celebrity in China and has been in many dramas and films. But her biggest break came when she was offered the role in her first American movie, ‘Avenue of Broken Hearts’ where she plays the main character. After the success of the movie she was offered the main role in ‘CSI: Sunset Valley’ as Detective Eva Tan.

Faye Chung

Faye Chung has lost her job, her husband, her hopes and her dreams all in one day. Her husband left her for a younger woman after nearly eight years of marriage, her company went bankrupt and everything she ever dreamed of quickly fell from her grasp. With her life in a complete ruin, she has no choice rather than to relocate to Sunset Avenue, in hopes to start anew.
Her hopes are once again crushed when she finds out that her husband and his mistress are living together in the huge mansion at the end of the street. She then overhears some gossip, about her husband’s mistress and her estranged husband, James Reinhardt, a drop dead gorgeous and mysterious man - who’s now living in the run down bungalow right across the road from her! Lonely, she acquaints herself with him hoping to be a shoulder to cry on. But it seems all he wants is revenge on the man who stole his wife.
Together they concoct a plan to steal their partners back. Every chance they get, they put their schemes in to action, in hopes that they can drive their partners apart and back in to their arms. Although James is very hesitant and reluctant to reveal his feelings to Faye, he always comforts her when she gets emotional about her husband leaving her.
Over time it seems that Faye had underestimated her feelings for her husband and now finds herself hopelessly falling head over heels for James. But will James feel the same? Or will he continue to pursue his estranged wife?

Isabel Montero

Age: 19

Isabel Montero immigrated to the United States from Mexico with her parents when she was just two years old. With a naturally bubbly personality and charismatic demeanor, she was drawn to the stage from a very early age and has always loved the spotlight. Her supportive parents tried to cultivate their daughter’s talents by signing her up for singing and acting classes, and at one of her recitals she was discovered by a talent scout. She moved to Hollywood at the age of eighteen, and after some small bit parts in a few television shows, Isabel finally got her big break, playing the part of Aurelia Morales in the romantic comedy Love and Berries.

Aurelia Morales

Aurelia Morales dreams of attending a small liberal arts college a few hours away, but as the only child of a single, working mother she knows she will have to win a scholarship in order to afford the pricey private school. As the main component of the application, the scholarship committee requires her to write a five-page essay “describing a significant risk you have taken and evaluating its impact on your life”, but Aurelia, an A+ student and self-proclaimed perfectionist, struggles to think of a suitable topic. Determined to win the prestigious award, the class valedictorian comes up with a daring scheme- Fake a pregnancy and use the experience to assess the social stigmas attached to unwed teenage mothers.

With only her immediate family knowing the true situation, Aurelia starts the first day of her senior year at a new school, Berry Lane Academy, but little does she realize just how different life as a “berry” will be. With no friends and no reputation, she struggles to fit in with the other kids in her class, and it isn’t long before she’s labeled as untouchable by the “popular” crowd. Nevertheless, one boy at her school, Lucas Albright, takes an immediate liking to the blunt and outspoken Aurelia, and soon their close friendship blossoms into young love. However, as the weeks pass by and Luc begins asking more and more questions about her pregnancy, Aurelia’s lies quickly accumulate, and she frequently finds herself tangled up in messy, but often hilarious situations. And when Luc’s one-time best friend, the ever popular Matthew Ridgeway, becomes jealous of their relationship and decides to win Aurelia for himself, her secret becomes even more difficult to hide. Will she be able to keep her charade going and win the scholarship, or will the other “berries” at her school discover the truth?

(admitted rush job, hopefully I'm on time... only got back home a few hours ago)

(And yes, those are neutral expressions... I didn't realize they would look quite so expressive outside of CAS)

Khatijah Saab is not a household name yet, but very soon she may be! Khatijah is a girl from a tiny city on the edge of the Simhara. Clever, resourceful and ambitious, she got her start in the film industry as the backer of her friends' film, The Way To The West, draining about 1.7% of her trust-fund for the artistic endeavor, securing herself a spot as the star of their newest film, Crazy Summer Nights, a retelling of the story of 1001 Nights.

But don't think Khatijah only used her connections, birthright and money to get a role undeserved! Perhaps shockingly, the film and actress both met with extreme acclaim from critics when screened this weekend, and Khatijah was praised for her role as Scheherazade, a woman married to a King jaded by the unfaithfulness of a woman, who marries a virgin each night and has her executed each morning, until he weds the last woman left. Through her tales she tells him, Scheherazade keeps herself alive for one more night until the king can hear the ending to each story, until by the end of the summer, the king has fallen in love.

Khatijah and her co-star, Farid Amjad also play between them nearly every major character in Scheherazade's tales.
