  1. Building my ideal studio from scratch takes 15-20 "game years", which ages some of my homemade directors into retiring.
  2. Worse yet, t often have to start earlier than I'd planned and guess when my one scientist will unlock what I need.
  3. I feel guilty when I try to forget about reviews and ranking, and just produce what i feel like trying.
  4. I wonder whether I'll run out of money, time, or lot space first.
  5. I'm lucky to get one male/one female stuntperson; obvious doubles can ruin the look of a production.
  6. When I've got a cool setting/character idea, I can't use it unless someone's made a mod for it already; my graphic-design skills are near-zero.
  7. I keep forgetting where modded costumes and sets go, so installing them confuses me.
  8. Genres:  I wish I could combine them (making one film action/sci-fi or comedy/romance).  Some way to define new ones (drama, fantasy, kids' film) would be great too, even if those genres had no gameplay effect.
  9. Child actors:  you can't always fake them with latex heads and camera tricks.
  10. New animals:  sometimes I want to work a cat, a bear, or a trained bird into the story; but the game has no good way to include them.

Studio names:  Second Take Studios (comedy/action), New Look Cinemas (horror/sci-fi), Rose Pictures (romance/unofficial genres)
