I did an earlier post on the new season of Project Greenlight. This post this fun for me because my longtime director of photography, Julien Lassuer, has a film in the final top 20.
Julien was the DP on planet5D.com's Incident on Marmont Avenue and is close personal friend. His film is called Captain Torpedo and is worth a watch. After you are done please vote if you like it – every vote counts at this point. Voting ends this week so there isn't much time to act.
What was great about Captain Torpedo (besides it is clever, funny and looks beautiful) is it was only submitted because Julien's girlfriend told him to submit it. As luck would have it, it now stands in the final 20 films.
You can check out the film here (note that all the submissions are less than 3 minutes in total length so watching the films doesn't take up too much time.) I want to encourage anyone who has interest to check out the films and vote. I voted for Julien and hope he makes the next round of cuts. If so I will be doing a feature on the next phase that will see him direct a scene from a pre-determined script for the finals.
