Customer Reviews

He seemed like someone who thought he was cooler and more important than he really was.
Jeffery L. Voyles
This is worth viewing for the filmmaker, the film student, the film buff and those people who like to understand better the process of filmmaking.
Bennet Pomerantz
I've been a vistor of the Project Greenlight Website since this competition and it is great to see the competitor videos included on the DVD.

What started as a simple Internet contest transformed into one of the most acclaimed reality series to hit cable for quite some time. Pete Jones was the winner and was given the opportunity to direct his film, "Stolen Summer." Sounds easy, right? WRONG!
With these episodes, you get to see all the drama, all the battles, and all of the controvercy that took place during the filming of "Stolen Summer." From casting complications to the infamous beach incident, they're all here, uncut and uncensored.
I for one really enjoyed the series. It was a look into directing that I had never witnessed before. I never knew how complicated and stressful it is for the director, even when it comes to getting ONE scene into the can!
This spectacular DVD package includes four disks. On these disks you will find twelve episodes, the full length movie "Stolen Summer," and a disk full of all sorts of extras and goodies.
The disks go something like this:
Disk One: The complete film "Stolen Summer," with extra features that include audio commentary from the director, co-producer and producer Chris Moore, the theatrical trailer, 2 deleted scenes (with choice of commentary or no commentary), and Pete Jones' "Project Greenlight" scene vs. the final film. I highly recommend the full length commentary. It's funny and informative at the same time.
Disk Two: Episodes 1-6. (Or Episodes 101-106, if you want to be more accurate.)
Disk Three: Episodes 7-12. (Or Episodes 107-112, if you would like again to be more accurate.

After reading the so-so reviews, all I can say is to each their own. If you are a filmmaker, interested in the film industry...this four DVD set is jam-packed!
First, let's talk about DVD 2-3. The Project Greenlight twelve episode series. I literally couldn't stop after each episode, I literally wanted to keep watching all episodes in one sitting and I did. You really get a good behind-the-scenes look at the making of a film. Sure, probably not in-depth that people would like but nevertheless a really good behind-the-scenes look at the making of "Stolen Summer" and the difference of opinions and the stress that goes on. You literally can feel it.
DVD 4. This DVD is packed with video entries from the top competitors in the contest from their personal videos of why they should be selected to the top 10's short films and more. There is also the act like Chris Moore competition and of course Project Redlight and also advice. There is just so much stuff on this fourth DVD. I've been a vistor of the Project Greenlight Website since this competition and it is great to see the competitor videos included on the DVD.
And DVD 1. This includes "Stolen Summer" movie, deleted scenes, director and producer's commentary.
I don't know...I pretty much looked at this video like the many filmmaking books that I have and saw it more as a really good investment. It's like how many filmmakers purchase "El Mariachi" for Rodriguez's filmmaking advice (and his cool book), this is also a worthy purchase.
With all four DVD's packed with so much and for the price I got it for, I don't see how you can go wrong with this DVD. Definitely worth buying!

Format: DVD
There are times after I have seen a movie, I say to myself "I wonder how could they have made this film?", "Who the producer who took a risk on this script?", "Why didn't they get such and such an actor for that role?" or "Why did they have such a down ending?". After viewing the first season of HBO's Project Greenlight on four dvds, I have a better concept of filmmaking nad the process involved behind the scenes.

I have read Jerry Lewis's theThe Total Film-Maker.and understand the basic concepts of how the film starts from the script to final production. If you find a copy, read it!

Here in this documentary DVD set is director Pete Jones's filmmaking odyssey from being a novice screen writer (selected from an on line script contest) to selection of his script Stolen Summer (with producers Ben Affleck, Chris Moore & Matt Damon) greenlighted by Miramax. Then Jones had to make a budget and rewriting his script to fit his budget and not lose his cinematic vision. After that, there was the process of locations, casting actors, filming, to editing his final print. Jones's film education is well documented in this mini series.

To see it on DVD, you have a better chance to digest this series and Jones's filmmaking expierences...because you are with him for the journey as camera is on him personally and his cinematic vision. It is not always a positive or happy expierence. Sometimes you see the deals and the compromises you make, when making a movie

There are guests along the way like Jay Leno, Kevin Smith, Harvey Weinstein, and many others filling the twelve week series.
