The game is designed help potential new entrants understand the tasks and duties of certain job roles and develop skills which are traditionally gained through (unpaid) work experience.

The game is particularly relevant to those studying film/TV courses and those teaching media studies/film production but will also be of interest to people hoping to get into the industry, regardless of their qualifications.

Players are plunged into unfamiliar the world of film/TV studio, and are given a number of tasks to complete and scenarios to navigate that reflect some of those that may be encountered when working in the industry, which will challenge their perceptions.

The game features studio environment populated by 17 crew members with varied backgrounds and experience. As well as playing the game, players can explore technical equipment and props, overhearing conversations, taking on tasks and helping out with the shoot.
