In the Season 4 premiere, 13 finalists are chosen from a pool of thousands of aspiring filmmakers and travel to Los Angeles to meet the series' judges, who discuss the merits of each contestant's short-film submission before announcing a winner.
Production is two months away, but Effie, Marc and Len sing the praises of shooting digitally to Jason as a way of staying on schedule and under budget. Meanwhile, Jason pitches his own script for a dark comedy called "The Leisure Class."
After filling key production-staff roles, Effie brings in the location manager to choose LA-area mansions, but Jason thinks none of them match his creative vision. Meanwhile, the production team begins casting the lead roles, and Pete Farrelly and Effie butt heads about Jason's continued resistance to shooting digitally.
The Farrelly brothers consider their place in the project; Jason takes his concerns about digital directly to Ben; the search for a perfect location continues, causing drama amongst members of the team; the cast assembles for a table read.
Jason is eager to take charge as production begins; Jason's penchant for perfectionism conflicts with the tight shooting schedule Effie is vigilant about maintaining; the crew raises communication concerns; Jason is presented with a solution.
On the final day of shooting at the house, the production team grows increasingly frustrated that Jason has not chosen a location for the car-crash scene. Later, Jason meets with the stunt coordinator to map out the crash logistics. During the last night of filming, Jason receives words of encouragement from a surprise visitor to the set, while he and the production team race against the clock to wrap before the sun comes up.
With filming wrapped, Jason gets notes on his director's cut of the film, and, at Ben's suggestion, screens it for a test audience. Though resistant to some of the feedback, Jason works round the clock with the editor to get the final cut completed before the film's red-carpet premiere at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles.
