For the highest quality image, record your scenes in game with something akin to FRAPs. The FRAPs demo allows you to record your video in 30 second chunks (longest scene in The Movies is 28 seconds I believe). While the FRAPs demo will put a water mark in the top center of your image, it can be removed by cropping, which you will need to do anyways to remove the rest of the game's mechanics.
Any decent video editor will allow you to lighten and darken scenes and shots.
For me, I record with FRAPs. Then use VirtualDub (it is free) to crop the image, enhance the colors, the contrast and make lighter or darker. With the proper filters, you can do some amazing stuff with VirtualDub, it just takes practice and experimentation.
Then I put the shots in my video editor to make my film. And the best way to learn a video editor is to try and experiment and see what you can do.
You can have all of the expensive, professional tools and easily make a crap film. But you can have all the cheap and free tools available and make a wonderfully compelling and entertaining film.
It is good content and solid technique make a film enjoyable.

How to install.
1. Unzip the file, this will create a folder called 'employeemod'
2. Find the location of 'the movies' (default c:\program files\lionhead studios ltd\the movies)
3. Open the 'data' folder at this location
4. Open the 'data' folder inside the 'employeemod' folder
5. Copy all folders from inside the 'employeemod' folder in to the 'the movies\data' folder
6. This will mod the game to give you more people coming to your studio to hire.

Did you try starting a new game? If not, start a sandbox game where the studio is prebuilt and see if the hiring facilities become full of wannabee employees.
If not, check to see if you accidentally put The mod's Data folder into the Game's Data folder. If the game's Data folder contains a Data folder with in it, the the mod was most likely mis placed. Move the lowest level Data folder up to the game folder. You should be asked if you want to combine the two folders, say yes.
The other thing is you may have placed the contents of the mod (Facility folder and Global.ini file) into the main game folder instead of the data folder. So if the main game folder contains the Facility folder and a global.ini file, select them and place them in the Data folder.
If that doesn't work, post an image that shows your folder layout within The Movies Game. Here is an example of what I mean for the game Red`Baron 3D (I am currently noton my computer that has The Movies)
