So it's official! I just submitted my entry to HBO's Project Greenlight! I initially wasn't going to submit to this because the deadline was a bit too close for comfort but I know I would've kicked myself in the ass if I didn't at least try. I shot it by myself in a couple of hours two days before the submission deadline. I would've liked to have been able to put more production value into it and it's a bit rushed but I think it still turned out decent given the circumstances. I think the story comes across well.
For those of you unfamiliar with this show, it's a "reality" show produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck that gives aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to fulfill their dream of directing a major studio feature film. Each filmmaker must submit a short film they've directed that's under 3 minutes. There are four rounds to go through and it's still very early in the judging stages of the contest. Judging is open to the public so if you'd like to check out some of the films that were submitted and judge them yourself, check out the website here.
The videos that you get to watch and rate are randomly generated, however, there's a small chance that you may come across my film "Piece of Pie". If you do, you know what to do and give that sucker ten stars and get me to the next round! If you don't have the patience to sit through all of those other films and just want to check out the film I submitted, you can check it out below. I'll keep you guys posted on the whole process! Wish me luck!
