 "Jason proves that top-notch production values are within the reach of anyone who has ever dreamt of making his own movie. You’ll learn far more about filmmaking with this practical, thorough and meticulously organized site than you ever will watching "Project Greenlight." Jason knows what he’s talking about, because he’s actually done it!"
