Attention Filmmakers: Amazon Studios Wants To Turn Your Short Into a Feature. Here's How.

Ever dreamed of making your short film into a feature length project or series? Well, starting today, Amazon Studios will accept your shorts (or "concept videos," as they're calling them) in the hope of finding a compelling idea for a feature film or episodic series that they will produce. They've been accepting scripts for a while now -- what's new is the video element.

Here's how it works: Filmmakers are invited to submit 2-15 minute videos to the Amazon Studios site; the process works just like script submission. Creators can submit either privately or publicly.

After that there is a 45-day option and evaluation period, during which Amazon decides whether they'll option your project or not. If they decide to buy it (and its associated rights) they'll pay $200,000 for a movie script, and $55,000 if it's a script for an episodic series. 

For more info on their venture and for instructions on how to submit click HERE.

    Amazing how some people will resort to just about anything to scam people for jobs. Like desosa.
