A bit of unlikely (but welcome) news broke a couple months ago, when HBO announced that it was reviving the reality series Project Greenlight for a new season with Ben Affleck and Matt Damon producing. The show initially ran for two seasons on HBO from 2001-2003 and then for a third on Bravo in 2005, launching a contest to find up-and-coming young filmmakers. The winning director was then followed and mentored through the pre-production, production, and post-production process on the series, giving viewers an inside look at how a movie is really made while also providing a boost to an exciting new talent.
HBO has now unveiled a promo spot for the new season of Project Greenlight, in which Affleck and Damon explain how you can enter the contest to be considered for the new season. Submissions begin July 24th and are open through August 8th. Watch the video after the jump.
Here’s the video from HBO. Head on over to ProjectGreenlight.com if you’re interested in being considered for the series.
