Project Greenlight


"Project Greenlight," the docu-series chronicling the search for a first-time director, while exploring the filmmaking process, is returning to HBO for a new season, it was announced in April. 

As the Twitter embed says above, the wait is now over, as submissions are now being accepted.

In brief, filmmakers are asked to submit a 3-minute short video at Projectgreenlight.com starting today, July 24th, through August 8, 2014. Check out Official Rules here.

Executive produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, who were executive producers of the previous two seasons on HBO, over a decade ago, in 2001 and 2003, "Project Greenlight" takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a first-time director, spanning the entire filmmaking process. 

The show begins with a digital competition, following the winner from pre-production and casting, through principal photography and post-production. 

Equipped with a "Hollywood-vetted" script and surrounded by a team of industry professionals, the fledgling director must learn to cope with pressure from the studio and producers to deliver an agreed upon completed project, while handling on-set politics, and lead a veteran cast and crew, all while trying to deliver a viable movie – on schedule and on budget.

"Project Greenlight" is produced for HBO by Adaptive Studios in association with Pearl Street Films and Miramax; executive producers, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Marc Joubert, TJ Barrack, Perrin Chiles, Marshall Lewy and Zanne Devine.

The wait is over filmmakers! Enter the initial digital competition now, by submitting a 3-minute short video at Projectgreenlight.com starting today, July 24th, through August 8, 2014. Check out Official Rules here.

Good luck!
