|"The toughest part was going from a contest winner -- beholden to the people who gave me the opportunity -- to a director who had a serious vision of what I wanted the movie to be. My job was to fight for what I believe in. And Miramax's job was to make the best movie they can -- at a given price." -- Pete Jones on "Project Greenlight" to Time Out New York, November 29-December 6, 2001.|
|Ben Affleck on the moviemaking process as shown in the HBO series "Project Greenlight": I have not ever been on a movie where if there were a '[Project] Greenlight' show, a third of the people would get stoned in the street in public by passersby. Inherent in the process is a little big of chaos, a lot of ego. It's kind of like smelding down of things. . . so you have this clashing and the sparks that come from it that are what you get the art from a lot of times.
People I think sometimes go, 'I can't believe this is how the business works!' Relative to other movies, this movie went splendidly. I think Pete did a fine, fine job." --quoted in Los Angeles Times, January 15, 2002.
