Amazon Studios

Amazon Studios is inviting filmmakers to submit what they're calling "short concept videos" that could be expanded into theatrical feature films.

These short films should be 2 to 15 minutes in length, and will be evaluated by the Amazon Studios development staff and considered for option.

The process works like script submission: 

- You can submit publicly or privately. 

- There is a 45-day option and evaluation period. 

- Creators of projects added to the Development Slate receive a $10,000 payment.

So what is Amazon Studios looking for? 

Videos that express an idea that’s begging to be seen on the big-screen, in full-length, full-budget form. These could be bold, imaginative worlds, original premises, or unique perspectives. A great concept video doesn’t need to lay out the entire feature film in all three acts, but serve as a solid foundation to build on.
