Description from the packaging.

Reading and expressive writing.

Build reading and writing skills as you write and promote films.
Thanks for getting here so fast! Here at Golden Fox Studios, our hot-headed director just got booted leaving his whodunit parody in pieces on the cutting room floor. As our new writer, director, and producer, here's your chance to produce the first of many films by developing new story lines and writing characters' dialogue. Promote your creations by writing press releases and news stories! By the time the films premiere, your expanded reading and expressive writing skills are likely to rank at the top of the charts!

Reading Comprehension.
Expand your vocabulary as you write, direct, and shoot films in the Back Lot. Set the mood for each scene by selecting the best suited words, actions, and sound effects. Then instantly see your ideas play out on screen.

Oral Expression.
Step into the Audio Dubbing Booth to hear how your voice sounds as you fill in for different characters. Practice oral expression, listening, and creative thinking skills as you evaluate and re-record dialogue.

Expressive Writing.
To ensure your films' success, stop by the Studio Office to write press releases, news stories, and movie posters. A glossary of movie terms and writing tips help you polish working scripts or write scripts from scratch.

Film Premier!
At the end of each film, hear the crowd cheer at its premier. The more scripts, press releases, and news stories you have written, the more enthusiastic your fans will be.
