Pete Jones feels “a little bit burned” by Project Greenlight, the TV show.
Stolen Summer director Pete Jones says that going into Project Greenlight, he “had no clue. I was naive. I bought into the idea that they were going to do a documentary about filmmaking, not Survivor on a movie set.” He says “the whole experience was great until I saw the edited version.” While he “got a little bit burned, …it was the opportunity I had, so I really can’t complain about it.” Stolen Summer debuted last week at Sundance.
