First, you must have an unlocking.ini file in your The Movies folder. If you don't have one, play story mode until you acquire the first reward. Once the computer has created the .ini file, you must then find it at: C:\Documents and Settings\yourusernamehere\Application Data\Lionhead Studios\The Movies\unlocking.ini
Then, delete the contents of the file and enter the following:
highest_decade = 2100
Save the file and you'll have all the story mode rewards in Sand Box Mode.

When exporting a movie ensure that you :
1) Completely Edit video portion before adding music, sound effects and dialogue.
2) Hit the Viewing Technology button before adding any sound to ensure that it lines up correctly.
3) Add all music, sound effects and dialogue, ensuring that they are placed appropriately.
4) Begin exporting process and listen for problems such as echo. (If there is an echo, split the scene where the dialogue begins and this will fix the problem.)
