Matt Damon and Ben Affleck want to make your movie.
Actually, wait, strike that: The Oscar winners want you to make their movie. As Damon and Affleck explain in the first promo for their revived docuseries Project Greenlight—returning to HBO after an 11-year absence—they’re not looking for screenplay submissions this time around. Instead, the new Greenlight will focus only on the trials and tribulations of a first-time director making a major motion picture. (Their pick will be helming a “Hollywood-vetted script;” no other details about the film have been released yet.)
Starting July 24, wannabe Afflecks can submit short films up to three minutes in length at Project Greenlight‘s website, which also features an unusually amusing FAQ section. For extra fun, read the following in the voice of Team America‘s Matt Damon:
What does the winning filmmaker get?
The winning filmmaker gets to direct a feature film.
What if I’ve never made a movie before?
First time for everything.
Can I submit my screenplay/photography/crayon drawing/soda can installation instead?
NOOOOOOOO. A 3-minute video is all we ask.
