Hollywood producer George S. Bottendorf has an idea for
a World War II combat film. In this activity, it's your
job to help this fictional producer balance the limitations
of his budget with his desire to realize the concept for
the film. The success of Bottendorf's movie, and the budget's
bottom line, will depend on the choices you make about film's
key elements, such as its director, cast, and location.
Making the best choices will mean box office success, including
both financial reward and critical acclaim.
