Some nine years after going off the air, HBO, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon have revived “Project Greenlight” in a new day and age of discovery. As introduced in a quick video below, the project, in Damon’s words, remains the same: an exercise in “documenting what’s actually happening when people try to make a movie together.” (Affleck, silent, was probably mentally running his “Batman v. Superman” lines.) A more informative and non-embeddable piece can be seen here.
From July 24 to August 8, “Project Greenlight” will be seeking submissions from those keen to either judge or actually produce a film. Though sure to be competitive, Greenlight asks for no more than a three-minute short — something plenty have on tap. Follow the guidelines, be sure to send in your material in some time over these next few weeks, and good luck.
