HBO has released a new promo for Project Greenlight, which is a documentary series that looks for a first-time director and focuses on the process of making a film. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon appear in the video to re-introduce the series for its new season. The two will executive produce with Adaptive's Marc Joubert, TJ Barrack, Perrin Chiles and Marshall Lewy, and Miramax's Zanne Devine. It will be produced by Adaptive Studios, Affleck and Damon's Pearl Street Films, and Miramax.
Here's a synopsis: Spanning the entire filmmaking process, "Project Greenlight" takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a first-time director. 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, survive on-set politics and lead a veteran cast and crew, all while trying to deliver a viable movie – on schedule and on budget.
