Project Greenlight

Project Greenlight is a documentary series on HBO – executive-produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck -- that takes a revealing, uncensored look at the challenges facing a first-time director. The show begins with a digital competition, and will follow 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 fledging director must learn to cope with pressure from the studio and producers, surviving on-set politics and leading a veteran cast and crew, while trying to deliver a viable movie – on schedule and on budget.

Through August 8th, this digital contest is accepting submissions of 3-minute short videos so that HBO can find the next great director, who will be selected for the series to direct a feature film.
