'The Chair' Episode 1: Meet two aspiring filmmakers competing for a spot in the director's chair

Anna Martemucci is a screenwriter who dreams of being a director; Shane Dawson is a YouTube star longing to trade the small screen for the big screen. The Chair follows these two first-time filmmakers as they direct their own films using the same source material for a grand prize of $250,000. Created by producer of HBO’s Project Greenlight, Chris Moore, episode one follows the filmmakers as they scout Pittsburgh for the best locations to tell their stories. What they soon learn is what goes on behind the scenes of making a film, is a lot harder than what you see onscreen.
