"The Chair", created by Project Greenlight executive producer Chris Moore. The competition documentary series follows two directors through the process of bringing their first feature to the screen. The up-and-coming directors, Shane Dawson and Anna Martemucci, are provided with an identical screenplay How Soon Is Now, which they must craft as their own film using the same budget and filming in the same city. The series documents the creation, marketing and theatrical release of both adaptations, which will also air on Starz. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Bad timing, unfunny scenes, poor editing
22 June 2015 | by BronxLensSee all my reviews

The documentary is OK, so if you want to see/learn of the behind the scenes dynamics of doing a movie production, go ahead. Of the two full length movies that came out of this, Hollidaysburg by Anna Martemucci and the other by Shane Dawson, Anna's has clearly the heft of an attempt at making a 'real' movie. Shane's feels like a long YouTube video. The delivery timing of pretty much all dialogue is obviously by inexperienced actors (nobody's fault except the genius that decided to shoot in Pittsburgh - this created the problem of having a very limited pool of acting talent as addressed by many on the documentary). BTW, I am not dissing Pittsburgh; I love the way the city is portrayed, so it is now on my travel bucket list, true that! To restate a point made by another reviewer here, "They both retreated to their comfort zones, Shane made a 90-minute YouTube sketch and Anna made a 90-minute student film." My only consolation is that I got to watch this by borrowing the DVD collection from my public library. Had I paid for this, buying or renting it, I would have thrown in my own mouth, to borrow a topic often heard of in one of the movies.
