Check out flotsams review of the original release here.

Quote:
Relive the days of classic gaming with The Filmmaker, a cheesy, puzzle-focused text adventure tribute to the traditional Hollywood "B-movie" in which players take on the role of young cinephile Brianna Auberon as she explores a haunted theater.

The Filmmaker combines the best elements of interactive fiction, visual novels, and gamebooks with a graphic user interface that emulates the look of early 1990s text adventures. It features beautiful artwork and cinematic music. In place of a text parser is a context-specific multiple choice menu. A compass allows you to travel from room to room, and separate inventory, map, journal, and character screens are available at the push of a button.

It plays like an interactive novel. You make a series of choices that determine what happens next in the story. But unlike in traditional gamebooks and visual novels, The Filmmaker also features more advanced adventure-based game mechanics, including locations to explore, items to interact with, characters to meet, and puzzles to solve.

Thanks Ana for moving me. I did a search but only found that old thread for some reason.

I bought the DVD of this game a few years ago and really enjoyed it but when I upgraded my computer it wouldn't play on win7. I remember emailing the creator/developer? he said there were no plans to develop it for win7 which was disappointing. Good news then that it may become available for newer systems.

I was really hoping this developer would bring out more titles. I really loved their other games Lifestream and Shady Brook. Im sure this one will be just as good.... :)

An update to my earlier post. I installed the DVD for The Filmmaker in win10 just to see what would happen and clicked through the error messages like missing files and something about a flash problem and it is actually playing! It's a bit unstable but so far not crashing or anything. I also found the lovely companion book written by Christopher Brendel (Unimatrix) which I had purchased with the game. Am so enjoying playing this great game again.
