Until today, I had never watched this show. It's totally fascinating and a great look behind the scenes of making a movie. Given all the factors involved in producing a film, it's amazing that movies get made at all.
I never paid much attention to the intricacies of moviemaking until I started playing with iMovie. It's changed how I view all media... commericials, music videos, motion pictures...what have you. At any rate, I think any teacher interested in working with multimedia should watch this show.
Besides learning about the movie business, Project Greenlight is giving me insight into collaboration and leadership as a whole. It's very interesting to watch the director particularly because he's not a very assertive person, yet has definite ideas about how things are done. And, I'm not sure if he's quite clear on the concept of going along to get along. The interpersonal skills involved in a huge project whether it's bringing change to a school, spearheading a community improvement project or making a multimillion dollar movie are not that different.
Anyway, I'd like to watch more of this show. I also love Bravo's Inside the Actor's Studio and another show they used to have on turning books into movies. Can't recall the title though.
