Producers Chris Moore (GOOD WILL HUNTING, PROJECT GREENLIGHT, AMERICAN PIE) and Josh Shader (AMERICAN PIE, THINK TANK) sit down with Adam and Joe to discuss their careers, the craft of producing, and their new Starz TV series THE CHAIR, a groundbreaking experiment that follows the experiences of two different filmmakers making feature films from the exact same script now airing. From Moore meeting Matt Damon while in college at Harvard University and struggling for years to get GOOD WILL HUNTING made, to Shader making such an impression on the AMERICAN PIE producers as writer/director Adam Herz’s assistant that he quickly worked his way up to producer status on the sequels, to the 3 season/3 movie experience that was Project Greenlight, to the painful truth that even after producing enormous worldwide and Academy Award-winning hits it is still no easier to get a movie made in Hollywood, to the reality of today’s new “YouTube Celebrity” generation, to some of the absolute greatest advice given to up and coming filmmakers yet, to some very personal and heartfelt words about working with the late Robin Williams…this is yet another extremely candid and honest episode of THE MOVIE CRYPT fit for inclusion in even the best film school’s program. “How about them apples?”
